Jennie Garth Totally Loves Tori More Than You Do, Shannen

Though the CW won't be shipping screeners for its upcoming 90210 reboot, fans can make do in the meantime by tracking any one of the show's delicious backstage dramas — and there's no one more eager to serve dish than Jennie Garth. When we last checked in with the erstwhile Kelly Taylor, she was reaching out to longtime friend Tori Spelling the only way she knew how: not by phone, but in the pages of EW. Now, Garth talks to TV Guide about her much-anticipated reunion with former frienemy Shannen Doherty, and in seeking to quell rumors that the two are still on fighting terms, she masterfully twists the knife some more:

When she reunited with Doherty to shoot CW's 90210 spin-off, she tells TV Guide, “It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. “I’m not much of a small talker, and I don’t think she is either. I was a little nervous because I hadn’t seen or talked to her in 14 years," she goes on. "Everyone was making it out to be such a big deal that I think we both fell prey to having that affect us.”
Sounds reasonable enough, especially when Garth adds, "We’re both grown women, both professionals." Still, she can't help but throw an elbow Doherty's way when asked what her reaction is to the Tori Spelling negotiation drama :
Fighting back tears, Garth tells TV Guide, “I know Shannen probably doesn’t share the feelings that I have for Tori, but I love Tori like my sister.”
Expertly played, Ms. Garth. Go share a glass of scotch with Lucille Bluth — you've earned it. Photo Credit: Justin Stephens/The CW
