Former '90210' star Jason Priestley dishes about Shannen Doherty and more in memoir

By Gina DiFalco,

Former 90210 star Jason Priestley is opening up about his co-star Shannen Doherty’s bad girl reputation, as well as being roommates with Brad Pitt in his upcoming memoir Jason Priestley: A Memoir.

Doherty played Priestley’s sister on the show and although they’re friends now, Priestley shared a story about his first impression of her back in 1990.

"I could not believe my ears at Shannen's very first words after she boarded. Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, 'Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?' She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn't really tell if Shannen was kidding or not,” he wrote about traveling to New York City on a private jet with her to meet advertisers.

In another excerpt released by Us Weekly, Priestley, 44, went on to write that he was “uneasy” at the way she was complaining about everything from “the short notice and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else."

Priestley also dished about living with Pitt back in 1987. He said they used to have “competitions over who could go the longest without showering and shaving," and Pitt usually won.

Doherty starred in a reality show in 2012 to try and debunk the misconceptions about her out there in the media. She started out the first episode asking, “You think you know me? Everybody does.”
