Her famous heroine Brenda Walsh was the ideal teenager, who was keen on studying, never got drunk and loved one and the same man for years. But Shannen Doherty, who created the screen Brenda, is her exact opposite. She was married 4 times, participated in numerous scandals and finally was diagnosed with breasts cancer. But in spite of all personal and professional troubles, Shannen remains a wealthy woman with $10 million net worth.
