The one-hour Lifetime special Tori Spelling: Celebrity Lie Detector aired Saturday, Oct. 3, and the actress revealed things about her time on the ’90s cult phenomenon Beverly Hills, 90210 that will blow your mind. Are you ready for this?
First up: Tori slept with two of her 90210 cast-mates. She only identified one on the special, though: Jason Priestley, who played Brandon Walsh on the show. Whaaat?
“It was a summer fling,” Tori told host Louise Roe, Us Weekly reports. “It was off-set. It was our version of a summer romance. The 90210 version. And that was it, and we stayed great friends for the rest of the run and beyond that, we had that one summer fling.” Brandon and Donna!? We can’t take it!
But there’s more, y’all. Tori also dished she had a crush on Luke Perry (Dylan McKay), and the two even shared a kiss—but that’s it. “From the very first episode Luke Perry was on, I had a mad crush on him,” she said.
And the biggest bombshell? Tori called her father Aaron—who created 90210—to have Shannen Doherty axed from the show. Shannen (Brenda Walsh) was a nightmare to work with and—according to Tori—even got physical with cast-mate Jennie Garth, who played Kelly Taylor.
“I remember… I could hear the door fly open and everyone screaming and crying,” Tori said. “That’s when I was told the boys just had to break up Jennie and Shannen. It was like a fistfight.”
She added, “I felt like I was a part of something, a movement, that cost someone their livelihood. Was [Shannen] a horrible person? No. She was one of the best friends I ever had.”
Yikes! Sounds like a pretty tumultuous set. Our minds are racing right now, but how about y’all? Are you surprised by Tori’s revelations? Let us know in the comments.
