Shannen Doherty Readies The Release Of Her First Book


While Shannen Doherty’s stint on Dancing with the Stars was (far too) short-lived, I’m happy to pass along that there is exciting news about a new project from La Doherty. Shannen has penned her first book, an autobiography of shorts, that chronicles her life from child star, to TV superstar, to tabloid bad girl and beyond. Aptly titled, Badass: A Hard-Earned Guide to Living Life with Style and (the Right) Attitude, Shannen’s new book will tell her side of the story from her personal perspective. Here is our first look at Shannen Doherty’s first book:

For fans of Shannen Doherty, best known for her roles as Jenny Wilder on Little House on the Prairie, Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210, and Prue Halliwell in Charmed, and for women who are fed up with coming in second and being treated like a doormat, or who just want more out of life. There’s a fine line between being a bad girl and being a badass, and Shannen Doherty ought to know. After enduring tabloid headlines during her catapult to teenage stardom as Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210, Shannen Doherty has emerged a renewed woman on a mission. In her first book ever, she reveals her own evolution from bad girl to badass, sharing her secrets to happiness and success. Badass is a straightforward, but exciting journey to finding your inner badass and living life with moxie and style. Shannen shares intimate personal stories, like how both her parents nearly died when she was very young, and how these events have made an impact on her life. She also offers tips for using newfound confidence in relationships, and gives advice on dating, friendships, and handling “frenemies.” And she has lots of fun, creative ideas for living life to the fullest, from entertaining and vacationing to decorating and shopping. Woven throughout her tips and advice for living the badass lifestyle are photos, providing an intimate look at Hollywood’s favorite female badass.

OMG … LOVE this!! For years we’ve heard about what an alleged terror Shannen Doherty is to work with but AT LAST, she will have her say and will finally set the record straight. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Shannen (for various reasons) and I am so curious to read what she has to say about all the things that have famously been said about her. Badass won’t be released until November but you can pre-order it HERE at Amazon to ensure that you get a copy as soon as it becomes available. I’ve already placed my order so the wait is on. I’m dying to read about Shannen’s life experiences from her point of view … I suspect it will be a quite different tale then we’ve been told over the years.

  • Manda

    Hmmm…I wonder how revealing it will be considering she has stated before that she doesn’t kiss and tell. I will definitely buy it. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but I do find her interesting. I also believe that she was a terror on the sets of her shows considering nearly everyone she’s worked for or with has said so LOL

    I think Shannen is very talented and I continue to be amazed at how many lives she’s had where others would be washed up. But I don’t know….have we learned nothing from the Brady Bunch episode where Bobby idolizes Jessie James who then shows up in a dream and shoots his family? Anyone who has had to go to work has had their life made miserable by someone like Shannen. it is easy to idolize temperamental stars from afar. Being hell on wheels at work isn’t anything I’d valorize as “badass.”
