Little-known facts about 'Beverly Hills, 90210'


By Dre Weston

It's hard to believe it's been almost 25 years since Brandon, Dylan, Kelly and the rest of the gang from West Beverly High School captured the hearts of teenage audiences all around the world. As the stars of the immensely popular 'Beverly Hills, 90210,' Jason Priestley (Brandon Walsh), Luke Perry (Dylan McKay), Jennie Garth (Kelly Taylor), Shannen Doherty (Brenda Walsh), Tori Spelling (Donna Martin), Gabrielle Carteris (Andrea Zuckerman), Ian Ziering (Steve Sanders) and Brian Austin Green (David Silver) completely ruled the '90s.

The Fox show, originally conceived as a drama about a family from a small town in Minnesota who move to the lavish community of Beverly Hills, pivoted toward a teen vehicle full of sex, drugs, suicides, teen pregnancy and any other socially relevant topic that producers could cram into each week's episode.

As we remember the cast of the original show, DoYouRemember unearths a few interesting facts about Beverly Hills, 90210. Check them out in the gallery above!

Doherty was fired because her right eye was a creepy 3 inches higher than her left eye making everyone sick who looked at her. Well 3 inches or 3 cm it was still a creepy eye!!!

She was a douche anyway, and Tori Spelling was as homely as hell, I wouldn't take her to a dog fight if she was the main event.

IT'S FUNNY THE DOUCHE AND HOMELY MADE MILLIONS? NOW DID YOU? And oh, I really didn't watch the damn show. I was too busy working taking care of my family. Every now and then I watched it with the kids. I Wish my @$$ was a douche and homely and made those millions!

Didn't Shannen Doherty get canned from other shows, too? I see a pattern. A disturbing pattern.

wickedcoolally - She most certainly did.
I believe she got fired off on every show she worked on.

If you're an actor on an episodic show you maintain a consistent appearance unless a change in your appearance is written into the script. The actors are hired and paid to play a specific part and if they can't do that they should look for another line of work.

They should have fired "horse face Spelling". Talk about lack of talent.
