Shannen Doherty’s a Go for New ‘90210’

Shannen “Eyes Adrift” Doherty, the meanest broad to ever stalk the Peach Pit, is returning to her stomping grounds in the CW’s Beverly Hills: 90210 spin-off in September.

Doherty had been contemplating taking a role in the new 90210, but first wanted a look at the script and a bigger paycheck. Sounds like the producers threw in an extra bag of kibble per episode.

Doherty will be joined by fellow 90210 alum Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling when the story picks up this fall. Doherty’s character, Brenda Walsh, will be a guest director of West Beverly High’s musical production. Presumably, the show will have a rip-roaring rendition of Elton John’s “The Bitch Is Back” as its centerpiece.

Until filming concludes, Shannen needs to find a friend to take over her route of roughing up neighborhood school kids for their lunch money. Maybe this guy has some time on his hands.
