Shannen Doherty

-Married to Richard Solomon (2 February 2002 - present)

-Married to Ashley Hamilton (24 September 1993 - April 1994) (divorced)

-Sentenced to anger-management counseling by the Beverly Hills Municipal Court for an incident that occurred in August 1996; she got into an argument with 22 year old Corey Hanker and smashed a beer bottle on his car window as he tried to drive away from her. [12 September 1997]

-Was removed from the teen soap "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990) at end of 4th season (March 1994). Supposedly because of constant conflicts with other cast members and repeatedly late appearances on the set.

-Infuriated William Friedkin when she failed to turn up for the first day of shooting Jailbreakers (1994) (TV) in Hollywood. Shannon, as it turned out, had just returned from Italy, where she'd raised hell by turning up late for an interview on a television talk-show. Friedkin's first reaction was to call auditions and look at 12 other actresses to take the 90210-brat's part. But then he decided to stick with Doherty.

-In 1992, Shannen was a guest on "The Dennis Miller Show" (1992). She appeared on the fourth show which meant that host, Miller, was still in the process of getting used to the talk-show format. Early in the interview she rudely asked Miller if he was nervous and went on to point out his eyebrow which was twitching nervously. This made headlines the next day and before long, Miller was routinely making an effort to lampoon her on his talk show.

-While on the set of Blindfold: Acts of Obsession (1994) (TV) she met Judd Nelson, and they later became engaged.

-Released from her "Charmed" contract because of in-fighting between her and her co-star Alyssa Milano. [2001]

-Beat future Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano for the role of Rene in cult film Mallrats. [1995]

-Shannen had her wages garnished by California United Bank when she was on "90210" because she wrote nearly $32,000 worth of bad checks.
