Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story Clip: Shannen Doherty vs. Jennie Garth

Lifetime’s Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story, premiering Saturday at 8/7c, has “Shannen Doherty” seeing red — and we’re not just talking about her dress.

In TVLine’s exclusive clip from the movie — which purports to flesh out the behind-the-scenes scandals of the iconic Aaron Spelling drama series — a wardrobe fitting between Doherty (played by Degrassi‘s Samantha Munro), Jennie Garth (Suburgatory‘s Abbie Cobb) and Tori Spelling (Once Upon a Time‘s Abby Ross) takes a nasty turn when all three actresses want the same dress for a photo shoot.

“You wore red last year, Shannen,” notes Garth, to which Doherty snaps back, “Exactly. And we were a hit!”

Spelling attempts to throw down and put an end to the bickering, but something tells us this isn’t the only scene which will find the ladies of West Bev at each other’s throats.

    This looks awful, but i’ll probably still watch it.

  2. Dennis says:

    Wow! Tbh I expected that to be cheesy and badly acted, but that was great!! Both spot on for Shannon and Jenny.

    I never watch these things but I might actually tune into this one!

  3. K says:

    Finally! Casting for these movies that actually look remarkably like the real people. Nicely done.

  4. K says:

    Samantha Munro should return for the Unauthorised Charmed version.

  5. Eva says:

    Wow, the girl playing Jennie Garth looks so much like her!

    • BrightLight says:

      I thought the same thing. I also didn’t even recognize Samantha Munro. Dammit, now I actually want to watch this even though I said I wouldn’t.

    • H says:

      Abbie Cobb was born to play Jennie Garth, which is why she was cast in 90210 in 2011 as Single White Femaling cousin Emily.

    Oh that is delicious. I’m so in.

  7. Kari says:

    I remember the photo. Shannen ahd to wear a black dress but she looked beautiful.

    Here is the photo: http://mac.h-cdn.co/assets/cm/14/49/480×709/5482b60d58e64_-_mcx-90-fashion-beverly-hills-90210-s2.jpg

      I always wondered why Gabrielle Carteris was the only smiling. Now I know the answer.
      I would have gotten rid of all the red dresses and brought in other colours instead. Save the fighting.

  8. Ed says:

    I swear I remember one of the cast members mentioning this situation. A picture from the photoshoot popped up and they said “Ugh that damn red dress”

  9. Jennifer says:

    This looks like a hot mess. But I’m so in.

  10. lulu says:

    Team Shannen and Brenda, no matter what !

  11. GraceM says:

    I read one of Tori’s autobiographies, where she made it out that Jennie and Shannen were constantly fighting but she was little miss innocence.

    Funny how when this Lifetime story cimesxout, she’s just as much of a diva asxthe other two.

    This makes me nostalgic for Grosse Pointe. Lifetime should revive it. Nobody did a Shannen Doherty type better than Irene Molloy!

    • april-ann says:

      Totally agree!! Grosse Pointe was divine! Several years ago, someone special gave me the DVDs for Christmas – a favorite gift for sure which I still watch from time to time. Rather than go for exact lookalikes, they went for mannerisms, personality and characteristics as well, and were entirely successful at that. Not to mention giving us irresistible behind-the-scenes insight. Epic. Just epic.

    what have the networks run out of original idea’s I don’t see why they need to drudge up the past the ladies were young i am sure they all have matured over the years

  14. Eran says:

    She looks so much like young Jenny Garth it’s astonishing!

  15. Diz says:

    I hope it’s better than the Full House 1.

  16. tsevca says:

    Do people have normal relationships in any of the unauthorized movies?

    P. S.: That was bad acting.
