Shannen Doherty Calls Former Rival Jennie Garth 'Amazing'
While much has been made of the feud between 90210 actresses Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth, that’s all in the past.
“I adore her,” Doherty told PEOPLE of her 90210 costar in Las Vegas Saturday at the grand opening of LAVO. “Not only do I adore her, but I think she is awesome on 90210.”
The characters the two women played feuded over the same man on the original 90210, but were also reportedly bitter enemies off-screen, too.
“We’ve both grown up,” Doherty said. “I thought she was always good, but she brings something to that show that I think it needs. She’s sort of this stable force, that calm center, and I think she’s terrific.”
Doherty revealed that the two even text message all the time. “We’re friends,” she said. “I couldn’t be happier that I worked with her again. She’s amazing.”
Doherty–who is slated for a four-episode arc on the spin-off– will reveal who fathered Kelly’s son Sammy on Tuesday’s episode. –Mark Gray
