On Hating Brenda

By: Julie Gerstein / July 11, 2011


So many things to say about this 1993 MTV News report on Shannen Doherty and the phenomenon of the “I Hate Brenda Newsletter,” a little zine published about how much “Beverly Hills, 90210″‘s Brenda Walsh and Doherty sucked. For one, Shannen Doherty wanted to start a grunge band called Uncle Velvet? Why is John Corbett there? Also, I love one dude’s assertion that Shannen Doherty is growing her bangs out because she’s simply too lazy to pluck her eyebrows. So much vitriol! But I mean, really, Brenda kind of was the worst.
