Throwback Thursday: Shannen Doherty

We’ve already hit on a couple of our favorite Beverly Hills, 90210 hotties, but what about the bad girl, Shannen Doherty? Oh, Brenda Walsh, you were so naughty. (The other two ladies in question were Tiffani Thiessen and Jennie Garth, in case you were wondering.)

Back in the day, Shannen Doherty was the epitome of the Hollywood bad girl. Not only was her character Brenda Walsh a bit “flawed,” Shannen herself was even written off the show because of “tension” with her co-stars in 1994. This was right around the same time that she was sued for bouncing checks and getting married and divorced after less than a year to George Hamilton’s son. Oh yeah, Shannen also posed nude for Playboy in December of 1993 and March of 1994. That too.

Of course she also “charmed” us for over three years alongside Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs on Charmed from 1998 to 2001, then posed for Playboy again in December of 2003.

Unfortunately her appearances on TV and in movies since then have been very sporadic. On the bright side, she is set to star in a film again in 2014 called Bukowski about the life of writer Charles Bukowski. Perhaps that will be the springboard to even more roles in the near future. Fingers crossed.
