Shannen Doherty is most famous for her role as Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills, 90210 for the first half of the 90s. The brunette beauty was born in Memphis Tennessee, with Irish ancestry. 

Doherty had her first taste of fame on Little House on the Prairie as Jenny Wilder, as well as 1985 classic Girls just Want To Have Fun with Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt. She was also a memorable part of the iconic dark comedy Heathers which came out in 1989. Safe to say, Doherty was definitely an “it” girl of the 80s and 90s.

Doherty has posed for Playboy multiple times, and after many of these breakout movie roles, featured in Charmed as Prue Halliwell, which is the same show where she dabbled in directing.  

In 2006, the actress starred and produced in her own reality show on Oxygen called Breaking Up With Shannen Doherty. The show featured Doherty doing dirty work that regular people don’t want to do, like dumping their partners or telling people what their friends really think of them. It was canceled after only one season. 

This actress has always been open and honest about the fact that she is a registered Republican, and doesn’t have any shame although most of Hollywood is Democrats. 

Starting with her time on Beverly Hills, 90210, Doherty has faced a bad rep in the media, with magazines like people calling her the “iconic Hollywood ‘bad girl’” resulting from rumors of partying, fights, and late arrivals to the set. This gossip continued into Charmed, where many people spoke of a feud with her fellow co-star Alyssa Milano. In 2010, Shannen admitted that she did earn that rep, but has evolved into a different person.
