Shannen Doherty weighs in on Jennie Garth's divorce

Jennie Garth’s former “90210” co-star Shannen Doherty says that she empathizes with the actress as she goes through a divorce from "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli.

Doherty, while promoting her new reality show “Shannen Says," told People magazine that it’s tough being a celebrity and having all of your personal business on display, especially when you’re trying to raise little ones.

"I think that for somebody like Jennie who values family so much, this is incredibly hard for her," Doherty said in a press call Thursday.

"I feel for her and, more importantly, I feel for her kids," she added. "There are children involved [and] children have access to the Internet and everything that somebody may write."

Still, the 40-year-old actress says she’s proud of Garth for pressing forward with her own upcoming reality show, and of fellow cast member Tori Spelling, who has her own reality show on Oxygen.

"I happen to watch Tori's show and I think it's incredibly charming and endearing and I can't wait to see Jennie's show," Doherty said. "I think [it's] gonna be great."

Doherty's new show, about her life with now-husband Kurt Iswarienko,  premieres April 10 on WEtv.

    Ok – there is no way Shannon is younger than me. I was in junior high when 90210 started and she was already in her late 20's.

  2. What a joke

    Hmmm...She says it's hard being a celebrity because you have no personal privacy, yet she has a reality show letting people inside her personal life. Makes sense.

    This msg board is exactly the kind of stuff Shannen's talking about her kids reading! I guess I don't really blame her. We are a psychotic bunch.

    Does she still have that whole freaky "one eye is a full inch higher on her face than the other one" thing going on?

      No kidding... that eye thing freaks me out... maybe a big dose of botox on the high side will even things out.

      Five days ago would have been so much more appropriate for your date of birth.

      Dear Mr. Foreskin,

      Why, what a sweet thing to say,
      I hope you are accosted and repeatedly violated by a pack of drunken Albanian leprechauns armed with pogo sticks.
      Everyone should have their birthday wishes come true. Enjoy!
