Alyssa Milano pretty much tells Shannen Doherty to get over it
February 4th, 2024 under Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Recently, Shannen Doherty revealed that Alyssa Milano got her fired from Charmed. And Milano never addressed those comments.

However, that changed on Friday when the Who’s the Boss star told the MegaCon Orlando audience that it has been 25 years since that happened and Doherty and Holly Marie Combs to get over it.

Since the audience was full of her fans, they applauded her. But people outside that room were calling her what most people think she is.

So, she took to social media to try to smooth things over.

I don’t know one other show that has had the success that Charmed had where the cast still speaks ill of the experience a quarter of a century later. This is 15 movies and 13 TV shows ago for me. This was 11 years before my 15 year marriage and 13 years before having my first child. This was so long ago that any retelling of these stories from anyone is just revisionist history. I will add, though, with absolute certainty—everything was documented. There was a professional mediator (I was told Holly and Shannen would not participate in any mediation) and an on-set producer/babysitter who were both brought in to investigate all claims. It was then recommended by this mediator, after collecting testimony from cast AND crew—what changes should be made if the show was going to continue. The studio, Aaron Spelling, and network made the decision to protect the international hit that was Charmed. I did not have the power to get anyone fired. Once Shannen left we had 5 more successful seasons and I am forever grateful.

Also, footnote: I have the same attorney now that I had then (he’s been my attorney since I was 19).

Thanks to @collider for printing what I said verbatim.

Thanks to @megaconorlando for having me and believing that I can get people there. (4 hours wait lines! Phew!)

And thanks to the fans who have to deal with the chaos and can’t just have the show to love and experience for themselves.

As always, I wish Holly, Shannen and Rose, peace and light in their personal and professional journeys. We all have bigger demons to fight. #letsbeclear #sorrynotsorry #charmed #AlyssaMilano

I don’t think that helped. She has been living the privileged life for so long that she doesn’t see how we see her.

So here is my story about her. When I first moved to LA, I covered a small independent film that she was starring in. She was the biggest name there, but there were two legends, who were part of an Oscar-winning film, also starring in it.

When I got there, I was told she was not going to do interviews. By doing that, it meant that the story was not going to air. But I couldn’t leave. So, I went ahead, interviewed the legends, and her co-star, who starred in a movie we still talk about.

When she saw me with my cameraman, she skipped away, laughing with her friend. I gave her the death stare behind her back. And personally, I was glad I didn’t have to talk to someone who thought she was the shit. And in my mind, I was like, she is a shit.

And that movie bombed, not because of the actors I interviewed. It sucked because she can’t act. That is why she never had a feature film career.

I know, Milano would tell me to get over it. And I have! But I will never forget it.


Shannen Doherty reveals her breast cancer spread to her brain

In 2015, Shannen Doherty found out that she had breast cancer. And two years later, she beat it. However, in 2020, she announced that it was back and it was stage 4.

Today, the actress, who has been open about her cancer, revealed that it has metastasized to her brain.reas

January 12, 2023. On January 5th, my ct scan showed Mets in my brain. Yesterdays video was showing the process of getting fitted for the mask which you wear during radiation to your brain. January 12, the first round of radiation took place. My fear is obvious. I am extremely claustrophobic and there was a lot going on in my life. I am fortunate as I have great doctors like Dr Amin Mirahdi and the amazing techs at cedar sinai. But that fear…. The turmoil….. the timing of it all…. This is what cancer can look like.

Let’s say a prayer that radiation shrinks the cancer in her brain. There have been so many advancements in metastatic breast cancer. Let’s hope and pray that she can stay alive to beat it again.


Shannen Doherty’s third marriage wasn’t the charm
April 24th, 2023 under Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Shannen Doherty has filed for divorce from her third husband, Kurt Iswarienko, and it is ugly.

Her rep, Leslie Sloane, told TMZ, “Divorce is the last thing Shannen wanted. But, unfortunately, she felt she was left with no other option. You can contact Kurt’s agent, Collier Grimm at PICTUREKID as she is intimately involved.”

The estranged couple did not have a prenup, so the actress, who is battling stage 4 breast cancer, asked that she get spousal support and her ex get nothing. Hopefully, she gets it all.

They met in 2008, married in 2011, and had no kids. She was previously married to Ashley Hamilton and Rick Salomon, while he was married to Charles Band’s daughter Taryn.


BTWF: Shannen Doherty in Father Murphy
June 15th, 2021 under Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

Before Shannen Doherty lived the ritzy life in Beverly Hills, 90210, she lived the completely opposite way on Father Murphy. How cute was the 10-year-old back in 1981?

Here is what the actress said about her debut role. “Father Murphy. My first job with the amazing Michael Landon producing. I also worked with Jack Elam who was a wonderful character actor. We worked in Tucson, Arizona in 100 degree plus weather wearing buckskins and I loved every minute. It remains one of my fondest memories,” she wrote. “Michael soon after cast me in Little House New Beginnings where I had the privilege of him directing me many times. #buckteeth”


Shannen Doherty reveals she has stage 4 breast cancer
February 4th, 2020 under Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]

About four years ago, Shannen Doherty revealed that she had breast cancer by shaving her head. In 2017, she shared the news that she was in remission. Today, she told Amy Robach on Good Morning America that it came back, and it is stage four. The actress says she found out it was back about a year ago and is still processing the diagnosis because “it’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.”

She knew her fate when her good friend, Luke Perry, died of a stroke in March. She said this about his untimely death, “It’s so weird for me to be diagnosed and then somebody who was, you know, seemingly healthy to go first. It was really, like, shocking. And the least I could do to honor him was to do that show. I still haven’t done, in my opinion. So it’s a hard one.”

The show she is talking about is the spinoff BH 90210, and she did it because she wanted to honor Perry. The only person she told on the set was Brian Austin Green, and he was there for her when they were working long days. She wants other people to know that you can still work with stage 4 cancer.

Why did she come out now? She is in a legal battle with State Farm insurance over the settlement they gave to her for her house that was heavily damaged during the Malibu fires in 2018. They will be going court in the next few days, and she did not want the world to find out about her cancer returning from the documents.

She is fighting for the little guys who have been taking advantage of by insurance companies. Why go through all of that when she is going through all of this? Doherty explains, “I think the thing I want to do the most right now is I want to make an impact.” Then she added, “I want to be remembered for something bigger than just me.”

That she will be remembered for. She has always been larger than life since she starred in the movies Girls Just Want to Have Fun, and Heathers in the ’80s, and later on when she did Beverly Hills, 90210, Charmed and whatever else she was in. Her acting and her openness about cancer are just two of the many things we will remember about her. We will add making an impact on the ever-growing list.

I will be praying for her and everyone else that is fighting that horrible disease on World Cancer Day. Why can’t they just come up with a cure already?
