Holy Brenda Walsh!
Multiple sources have told our friend Michael Ausiello that Shannen Doherty is currently engaged in formal talks to reprise her role of Walsh on The CW's 90210 remake.
Reportedly, Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah -ï¿½ the producers behind 90210 - recently met with the controversial actress to gauge her interest in returning to the zip code from which she was banished in 1994. Not surprisingly, given her lack of recent roles, Doherty is interested.
"But," whispers an insider with close ties to the series, "she wants to know what the story is going to be first." Shannen also wants more money than higher-ups are apparently offering.
Money aside, Doherty never got along well with past-and-would-be-future costars Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. Therefore, while Doherty's willingness to return suggests she's ready (or desperate enough?) to move on, the feeling may not be mutual.
"There's still some animosity there," said a source, who admits Garth wasn't exactly jumping for joy upon learning of Doherty's potential hiring. However, counters the actress:
"A lot of time has passed, and I'm a big girl. I'd have no problem with her coming on the show."
