Shannen & Jennie's 90210 Reunion

Shannen & Jennie's 90210 Reunion


Former Beverly Hills 90210 stars Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth are teaming up again after 14 years to reprise their roles as friends-turned-rivals Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor in the new 90210 spinoff show. Entertainment Weekly naturally has the scoop! Here are some of the juiciest tidbits:

EW: In Tori Spelling’s book sTORI Telling, she tells some pretty harsh stories about you, Shannen. Did you read the book?
DOHERTY: I will censor myself out of respect for Jennie because she’s friends with Tori. I got passages sent to me and a vast majority of it is incredibly exaggerated. Maybe it’s a difference of how I was raised. I just don’t believe you write personal on-set experiences in a book. For me, when you work it’s almost a sacred experience whether you get along with everyone or not. In 27 years of acting I’ve never sold out one of my cast members. Ever. And I will stick to that.

EW: In the book it says you two got into a fistfight. That sounds very badass. But is it true?
GARTH: A fistfight? That makes us sound so tough.
DOHERTY: I know. Like we were serious gangsters.
GARTH: I didn’t read the book either.

EW: You’re thanked in it.
GARTH: For what? I wonder what I did. I asked Tori if I needed to read it and she said no, I shouldn’t bother.

EW: For the new 90210, you were both involved with determining where Kelly and Brenda were in their lives. Jennie, the producers initially wanted Kelly to be a West Beverly Hills High School board member, right? How did she become a guidance counselor?
GARTH: I didn’t want to be on the show for no reason. I wanted to have some value. When Gabe and [exec producer] Jeff [Judah] told me some of the things they were doing, I was like, ”Whoa. That is not 90210, people.” They were trying to educate me [about] how teens are in high school today. It was so shocking to me that I thought I should bring a positive spin somehow. Of course, I have yet to guide or counsel anyone.
DOHERTY: I think they must have told you the same things they told me.

EW: What kinds of things?
DOHERTY: All I know is there’s a girl giving a guy a b— job in the first episode.
GARTH: When they told me that, I thought, Aaron Spelling is rolling over in his grave right now.

  • gshock

    i just like them..i dont like the new teens there…

  • shannon

    I think that both Jennie and Shannon have grown up since the first show. They are both now older and can put their differences aside. I cant wait for the premire even though I never watched the original because I was born 3 years later but ive seen clips and it looks good

  • Sab

    Nice pics.

  • mrsdepp

    I watched every episode of 90210 in the 90′s; I was 19 when it debuted…I still have the 2 hour season finale on VHS!!!!!

    I look forward to the new version but I do not think it will be the same….

  • Miss::CulleN

    cannot wait!!! go shannen!! :)

  • jo

    i don’t know why, but i really don’t like tori spelling

  • shannen’s a joke

    Shanned\n is such a first class b*tch. She can’t get along with anyone, and she gets fired from ever job because of her sh*tty attitude.

  • 90210-er

    this photo shoot was showcased on entertainment tonight and they totally did a job air brushing shannen’s arms!!! they do not look like that. its not surprising, but just seeing the stark contrast…jeez

  • bobbi

    I watched every episode of the old 90210. I have to say it’s great to see both Jennie and Shannen back together again.

    Im bracing myself for the new series to be nothing like the old one, but it’ll still be great to see Kelly and Brenda back again.

    I will say this–being catty–that Shannen looks like a mess.

  • rhonda

    team Brenda!
    She looks amazing.

  • juli

    omg I am so god damn excited!! Brenda and Kelly are hot. I wasnt sure if they still would be but they sooooo are. Cant wait to see them on the new 90210.


    I hate all the hollywood gossip. I can’t wait for the new 90210.

  • Seriously

    I LUV U Brenda Walsh, I don’t care what the haters say!!!!

    I’m loving this picture. Jennie is still gorgeous. I can’t wait till Tues.

    What’s a b— job? Is it something like a rimjob? Cause I love those.

  • shannen’s 4 president

    @shannen’s a joke: Shut your stupid whore mouth, bitch! Shannen is a fucking goddess and has more class in her labia flaps than your have in your whole body. I wish she’d drive over to your house and pound the living shit right out of you. You know she could do it too!

  • remember da truth

    It’s great to see Shannen and Jennie behaving with more maturity than some of these posters (#23 you’re disgusting and really low class). I’m glad they debunked some of the rumors and seem to be getting along and having fun together.

    They both seem to have the same attitude — that a smutted up 90210 is not what Spelling would have liked, but today’s teens have no sense of propriety or how to be sexy, just how to be sleazy. They also seem to both being rolling their eyes at Tori Spelling’s version of events, but not wanting to diss her because they have too much class and have moved on. Each has carved out what is their niche in their careers, and live and let live.

  • newport beach, 92660

    NO ! This isn’t the 90210 I know and love…

    This is way to provocative.. especially the frickin blow job bit… Aaron would have like had a heart attack if he were still living. Whatever.. it cannot replace the original, no matter how hard they try, they cannot top spelling… never .

  • team shannen

    brenda looks hot

  • sexyjoshh

    YES!!! Shannen is back!!!! she is the most talented actress in the original. i totally fan of her, her attitude, the way she’s grow up.
    GO shannen you are the best!!!!
    i really hope they decide to give Shannen a lead role in the new show, if not?
    let me tell you: it will be the death of Beverly Hills 90210 reunion…
    believe in me….
    kiss from France

  • jiro
