Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling dished about their “Beverly Hills, 90210” cast mates — and possibly reuniting with Shannen Doherty on their new ABC Family show “Mystery Girls” — during an interview on Tuesday’s “Just Jenny” show on SiriusXM.


The actresses reminisced about the old days with radio host Jenny Hutt during a game of “90210-IT-ALL.”

When asked to pick a current actress to play their iconic characters in a movie, Spelling suggested Kristen Chenoweth for the role of Donna Martin.

While Garth didn’t have an answer for that question, she did admit that she would rather be stranded on an island with Doherty than former co-star Tiffani Thiessen.

Both stars agreed it would be fun to have Doherty make a guest appearance on “Mystery Girls.”

“The original threesome,” said Spelling, “Me, Jen and Shannen, that’s how it should be on this show.”

Garth then noted how the new “90210” cast didn’t have the same spark as the show’s original actors.

“That’s an example of a cast that really didn’t have that chemistry,” she said. “It’s hard to find actors who have that.”

She added, “It’s like lightning in a bottle, you either have it or you don’t.”
