Those of us who grew up watching the West Beverly gang on Beverly Hills, 90210 are likely still in a bit of shock after hearing Luke Perry was hospitalized for a stroke. Although there haven't been too many deets surrounding what happened, it looks like one of his costars has been in touch with the '90s heartthrob. Recently, Shannen Doherty revealed she's been in touch with Luke Perry after his stroke and had to fight back tears talking about her former on-screen love.

    On the show, Shannen played Brenda Walsh, who dated Luke's character (Dylan McKay) on and off for a few years before they broke up and he started seeing her BFF, Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth). Shannen left 90210 in 1994 amid rumors there was tension between her and her costars. (Reportedly, Tori Spelling got Shannen fired from the show as her dad was the creator and a producer.)

  • Her revelation comes after news Luke is "sedated" in a hospital after his stroke.
