It looks like WEtv has found the ultimate bridezilla. Former 90210 troublemaker Shannen Doherty is returning to TV as the star of her own reality series, with cameras following her and her fiancé, celebrity photographer Kurt Iswarienko, as they plan their wedding. The project chronicles Doherty as she manages all the hectic aspects of preparing for her third marriage (meeting with wedding planners, choosing a venue, and, of course, saying yes to a dress) while renovating her Malibu home. ”People will see a side of Shannen they never expected to see,” promises WEtv executive John Miller, who was sold on the concept after watching a presentation tape by Doherty and producers that showed the actress ”unfiltered, honest, and vulnerable.” Celebrity-relationship docu-soaps are a proven format on cable, best demonstrated by none other than Doherty’s former 90210 costar Tori Spelling on WEtv’s rival cable network Oxygen. If all goes according to plan, the series will debut in January, and its season finale will show the couple’s actual wedding (take that, Tori & Dean!). But what about season 2? Will viewers still want to watch Doherty once the honeymoon’s over? ”I would watch her go to a supermarket,” Miller says of the actress. ”She’s insanely compelling.”
