Yesterday I heard some sad news and I debated blogging about it because it’s celebrity news.
It was announced on #GoodMorningAmerica by the actress herself…Shannen Doherty’s breast cancer is back, and in stage 4.
She was diagnosed over a year ago, means she filmed the BH90210 miniseries with this diagnoses.
Anyone who knows me real well knows, I have always been a huge Shannen fan; from the original Beverly Hills, 90210…to Charmed…to her stint in the 90210 reboot in 2008 and in movies. I even had a cat, Teddy (he looked like Salem from Sabrina, The Teenage Witch) that loved Shannen (if I watched Charmed or 90210 and it was after she left the series, he would leave the room)
Back in 2015, when Shannen announced her cancer, I was shocked and saddened…then the following year after her chemo and radiated (and since she catalogued it in media so her fans could see her truth) I was joyed for her that she was in remission…so now that it’s back and in the terminal stage 4 state….I’m saddened; for Shannen, her family and friends who truly know her, and for others like me who are just fans of the art of her acting.
While she’s with us: Thank you, Shannen for the beauty of your realness and the beautiful art of your acting <3
