Shannen Doherty Is Staying Positive Following "Elevated" Tumor Test Results

It's been almost one year since Shannen Doherty happily announced she was in remission following her two-year battle with breast cancer. However, the former 90210 actress just took to Instagram to share a not-so-good health update. After having a series of tests done, the results showed high readings for a tumor marker — but she is still in remission, that hasn't changed. She captioned her now deleted selfie, "Test and results. One tumor marker test came back good. Other... elevated. Just means I get monitored and another test. But even after that call, I'm staying positive and taking stock of my life. It certainly helps put things in perspective and reminds you of what you learned [through] the cancer journey. And I sometimes, need a refresher. As I've said before, cancer changes your life in ways no one could ever imagine.....btw, the elevation can be from all sorts of things. Oh,

‘Unsolved’ Stars On Depicting The Forgotten Friendship Between Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. — Turn It On Podcast
It’s been more than 20 years since the tragic murders of Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace, and memories of many details may have faded. In particular, it’s been nearly forgotten that despite all the hype of an East Coast/West Coast rap war at the time, Tupac and Biggie were initially pals — and respected each other’s craft.

USA’s new series “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.,” focuses on the failed investigations into the murders of both hip-hop stars, killed when they were in their 20s and at the height of their fame. Was it a function of the so-called East Coast-West Coast rap wars at the time? Was it a gang hit? And were rogue cops from the Lapd involved? Plenty of theories have been bandied about through the years, and “Unsolved” dives into those details with new gusto.

Jason Priestley on His New Show as an Antidote to Dark TV, and Why He Didn’t Want to Revisit ‘90210’ — Turn It On Podcast
Don’t ask Jason Priestley about a “Beverly Hills, 90210” reboot. For one thing, it has already been done: The second “90210” aired on The CW from 2008 to 2013. And although Priestley returned to direct, he wasn’t interested in reviving his character and appearing on camera.

“I couldn’t figure out a reason why Brandon would still be hanging around there,” Priestley told IndieWire’s Turn It On. “He left. I couldn’t figure out why.”

Priestley has worked on plenty of TV and film since the O.G. “90210,” including series like “Tru Calling,” “Call Me Fitz” and “Haven.” But he’s also now a prolific director, working on both comedies like “Working the Engels” but also sci-fi shows like “Van Helsing” and “Dark Matter.”

Now he’s back on TV as the star of “Private Eyes,” a fun, light hearted procedural mystery drama from Canada that has made its way across the border on Ion.

Weinstein Begged Netflix for $25M in Emergency Cash Ahead of Sex Scandal

Weinstein Begged Netflix for $25M in Emergency Cash Ahead of Sex Scandal
A new report claims that, just weeks before the news broke about Harvey Weinstein and his widespread history of sexual harassment, the embattled producer tried to secure a $25 million "lifeline" from Netflix. The producer had reportedly known that both The New York Times and journalist Ronan Farrow were working on stories detailing his history as a serial sex abuser, with sources claiming that he approached Netflix, seeking "emergency cash", although he didn't reveal the reason behind why he needed it. Other sources claim that he was looking to sell off part of the rights to his movie library in exchange for $25 million, although he was denied by Netflix executives. Here's what one of the insiders had to say about this deal that never happened.

"Clearly Harvey didn't go to Netflix saying he needed 'hush money.' He put it into a business context, saying he was looking to sell the

Priestley responded to Strong the next day, writing, "Idk about that @tarastrong... I know I never worked for Miramax... and boy was my team Horrified when they heard about what I had done! Harvey was powerful, my team Strongly Advised me to write him an apology the next day..."

Jason Priestley Says He Punched Harvey Weinstein in the Face at Golden Globes Party in 1995

Jason Priestley Says He Punched Harvey Weinstein in the Face at Golden Globes Party in 1995
Jason Priestley is claiming he once got into a physical altercation with Harvey Weinstein.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor tweeted about the alleged incident on Friday in response to actress Tara Stong's claim that Weinstein may have attempted to derail Priestley's career after they got into a fist fight, much like director Peter Jackson's claims that Weinstein attempted to blacklist Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd -- both actresses have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment. Weinstein's spokesperson firmly denied Jackson's claims in a statement to Et.

When asked for the details of the story, Priestley claimed that at the 1995 Miramax Golden Globes party, Weinstein told him he had to leave. He then claimed Weinstein grabbed his arm when he attempted to exit the party.

"I was leaving when he grabbed me by the arm and said, 'What are you doing?'" Priestley claims. "I said 'You told me to leave, I’m leaving.' 'I didn’t

Jason Priestley Punched Harvey Weinstein in the Face in 1995
Jason Priestley has become the latest Hollywood star to come out against Harvey Weinstein. The actor has admitted to punching disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein in the face 22 years ago. The story comes after learning some more about the lengths that Weinstein would go to silence his victims, blacklisting them from Hollywood by smearing their names. Peter Jackson came forward late last week to reveal that the Weinstein Brothers told Jackson not to cast Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd in the Lord of the Rings franchise because they were "difficult to work with." Bad Santa director Terry Zwigoff echoed Jackson's allegations about the actresses being blacklisted, which brings us to now. Actress Tara Strong took to Twitter to wonder aloud if her good friend Jason Priestley had also been blacklisted for punching the disgraced Hollywood mogul in the face.

Sadly, Jason Priestley's punch to Harvey Weinstein's face wasn't over allegations of sexual misconduct.
