To the outsider, Shannen Doherty may seem like a long shot to win this season of Dancing with the Stars, which begins tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC. (And, of course, be sure to log back onto following the show to check out Annie Barrett’s fab recaps.) But, then again, not everyone is a hardcore Doherty fan like myself. (I even sat through 1994’s heinous Blindfold: Acts of Obsession to prove my Doherty devotion.) I am well-aware that the actress can bust a move. The evidence of Doherty’s rhythmic skill is clear in more than a few episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210. Now, Doherty may not exactly be performing the Paso Doble in these scenes, but she certainly can drop it like it’s hot. And that will most likely come in handy at some point during the season.

Check out Doherty (as Brenda Walsh) and Brian Austin Green (as David Silver) rocking a pool party dance contest:

And who can forget “Hello Day” with Emily Valentine?!

Do you think Doherty could be a dark horse in the DWTS competition, PopWatchers? Does she have what it takes to win?
