In her new book, “Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde,” Garth dishes about their one-time rivalry.

Garth recounts a time on set (via E! Online) when Doherty kept messing with her, trying to make her break character — “One of the great ‘90210’ legends is that Shannen and I actually
came to blows one time. I will tell you that this never
happened — although we did come very, very close,” writes Garth.

Eventually, “when she’d pulled up my skirt, and my bare a** was exposed for
everyone on the set to see, I did snap and I yelled at her, something to
the effect of, ‘Come on, b****! We’re taking this outside!'”

Garth says that the two of them were like “gasoline and a match” together, but now Doherty is one of her closest friends.

Another of Garth’s closest friends from her “90210” days is Tori Spelling, with whom Garth is about to launch a new half-hour comedy for ABC Family. “Mystery Girls” begins shooting in March 2014.
