Jennie Garth On Shannen Doherty: "It's Not As Bad As I Thought"


What's the 411 on how things are going down on the set of the new 90210 -- now that former enemies Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth are sharing the air?

 

"It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be," Kelly told TV Guide, of her reunion with Brenda.

"I'm not much of a small talker, and I don't think she is either. I was a little nervous because I hadn't seen or talked to her in 14 years," she said. "Everyone was making it out to be such a big deal that I think we both fell prey to having that affect us."

But Jennie said that once she and Shannen got back into their old groove, it all sort of fell into place. "I think it will be OK. We're both grown women, both professionals. Once we were working, it felt like a good fit."

Okay, so that's what she's saying --  but how's it coming off to the other peeps on set?

Well, co-star Ryan Eggold, who plays Kelly's new beau on the series (um, what? Where's Dylan?), admits "everybody was on pins and needles and sort of waiting to see how they'd react. They started off kind of tentative, but by the time we were five takes in, they were giggling and seemed to be reconnecting," he says.

As for Tori Spelling dropping out of the show due to salary issues, Jennie says that she's feeling more of the sting than her co-star.

"I know Shannen probably doesn't share the feelings that I have for Tori, but I love Tori like my sister."

She says she is encouraging fans to launch a "Bring Back Donna Martin" campaign.
