This sexy actress rose to fame as Brenda Walsh in the teen drama series, Beverly Hills, 90210, and the media has dubbed Shannen Doherty, the iconic Hollywood bad girl ever since. Before the TV show, her early films include the well-received movies The Secret of NIMH, Night Shift, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, and Heathers.
True to her image, Shannen Doherty made tabloid headlines for excessive partying, feuds with costars, and on-set tardiness. She also made waves when the stunning starlet bared her boobs and ass on a Playboy magazine cover.
On television, the hot celebrity starred in The Secret of Lost Creek, North Shore, and Shannen Says. Her other notable primary role was in the fantasy drama series, Charmed. In this show, she played the eldest Halliwell sister considered to be the strongest and most powerful witch.
In the late 90s, the beautiful actress received a diagnosis for Crohn’s disease. Though managing the inflammatory bowel disorder is challenging, Shannen Doherty has learned to live with it since childhood. Another diagnosis of breast cancer in 2015 proved to be a more difficult pill to swallow. The celebrity underwent surgery and chemotherapy for treatment.
She was in remission for a few years. Unfortunately, cancer had a relapse, and she is now stage four. The actress staunchly supports organizations that raise funds for cancer research because of her experience. She remains vocal about her struggles to inspire other people inflicted with the disease.
The attractive celebrity has been married thrice. She had a whirlwind romance with actor-comedian Ashley Hamilton, getting hitched after knowing each other for two weeks. The relationship ended in divorce after a mere five months.
Her second partner was poker competitor Rick Salomon. The high-stakes gambler had relationships with other prominent celebrities like Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson. Shannen Doherty’s marriage with him got annulled in nine months.
Her third, and hopefully last, marriage is with photographer Kurt Iswarienko. Some of his well-known works include Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Riding with James Dean, and The Pandora Project. With the resurgence of her health problems, the dashing man remains throughout Shannen Doherty’s side and continues to support her.
Even with her cancer diagnosis, the resilient actress continues with her acting. She has a few films in post-production and will reprise her role as Rene Mosier in the Mallrats sequel.
We hope for her successful battle against cancer, and we look forward to seeing more of this lovely woman on the big and small screens. Please browse through our collection of bikini photos to see Shannen Doherty’s days like a bad girl.
