Shannen Doherty: Jennie Garth Is ‘Amazing’ on DWTS
They haven't shared the same zip code in years and they were never close friends, but actress Shannen Doherty says she's proud of how her former Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Jennie Garth is doing on Dancing with the Stars.
"She is amazing," Doherty gushed to PEOPLE at a promotional junket for her November 25 ABC Family original movie Christmas Caper. "Ian (Ziering) did great on it and Jennie is doing great on it."
Don't look for Doherty, however, to follow suit. "Dancing with the Stars actually offered it to me the very first one that they did and I have an issue being judged–I'm not a big fan of it," Doherty confessed. "But I love the show."
The 36-year-old Doherty, who's single and lives in Los Angeles, says she tunes in every week to see how Garth and the other celebrities are doing on the show.
DWTS fans know that Garth, who will compete in Monday night's semifinal with fellow celebrity contestants Mel B., Helio Castroneves and Marie Osmond, is often a bundle of nerves before each performance. Doherty commends her former costar for having the guts to stick with it.
"We're TV actors. We're not used to performing live," Doherty says. "We do takes and we get to mess up and we know that we're going to have another take where we get to be perfect." On Dancing, Doherty says, "You've got to nail it the first time perfectly. It's a lot of pressure and a lot of nerves come from a show like that. I admire that can do that. I'm not one of them." –Monica Rizzo
