SFGate online April 2nd 2004

Former "Beverly Hills 90210" star Shannen Doherty is campaigning to save her favorite fansite, after bosses threatened to pull the plug on it. The actress was elated to discover the existence of www.Shannen-Doherty.net while surfing the Internet, but her support of the site has bizarrely threatened its future.

She says, "I'm really bad on computers, but every once in a while I go on the Internet and Google my name because I'm curious. You wanna see what you're supposedly up to and what you've done bad that week, or whatever.

"Sometimes I'll go on and I'll visit Web sites. There's one really great site -- out of 10,000 I found one that's really nice! Actually, I went on because somebody was impersonating me so I went on and said, 'This is the real Shannen Doherty,' and then everybody accused me of being an impersonator.

"I had to call the Webmaster Dianna and she questioned me up and down. I really felt I was talking to the FBI and she didn't believe me. It was bad. I finally convinced her so now, like I coast on there like every two months, or something, just to say 'hi' and 'thank you' to the fans.

"But the Web host is threatening to pull her site because they don't believe that it's me. But now they will because I just mentioned it."
