“Shannen knows her truth and she’s not afraid to tell it,” the insider dished. “At this point, she has nothing to lose. There have been so many lies said about her over the years that she wants to correct — and if that means settling some old scores in the process, so be it.”
“It always seemed that Tori and Jennie were ganging up on Shannen,” the source explained. At one point, the tension between the trio got so bad, the girls almost got physical with one another on set.
“I got in her face,” Garth recalled of the fight in a 2019 interview, noting, “We’re just both strong Aries women. We don’t back down — no matter what.”
At the time, Garth did not face much backlash, however, Doherty was seen as the problem.
“Shannen isn’t saying she was an angel, but she was treated horribly by a lot of people and unfairly painted as a mean girl and difficult to work with,” the insider continued. “Shannen may have been intense, but she wasn’t the only one to blame for the tension on set. By talking about their near-physical altercation, Jennie was admitting she was just as much to blame.”
