Shannen Doherty revealed she was ‘crying constantly’ as she opened up about her ongoing battle with brain cancer.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress, 52, made the admission as she got a standing ovation from fans in Tampa, Florida, at the 90s Con on Sunday – at which she spoke about fighting stage four of her disease.
Speaking as part of a 90210 reunion panel for the 1990s teen drama alongside co-stars Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris, she teared up while discussing her illness.
She explained to the audience members: ‘Thank you so much. You guys know how much I love crying constantly. And I do, it seems. So, thank you.’
The Charmed star was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and entered remission two years later.
Her cancer returned as stage four in 2020 and she revealed in June that her breast cancer had spread to her brain.

Shannen also told how she secretly underwent surgery months prior to remove the tumour and begin radiation treatments.
She added at the 90s Con: ‘I have a fight for my life, that I deal with every day. I think I am really great.’
The Heathers actress also joked about her divorce from her photographer third husband, Kurt Iswarienko, 49, from whom she split in April after 11 years of marriage.
She said: ‘My other profession is getting engaged, married and divorced, and I’m doing that very well.’
Her representative told Page Six at the time of Shannen and Kurt’s split that divorce was the ‘last thing’ the actress wanted, but added: ‘She felt she was left with no other option’.

Shannen said after sharing the news of her break-up: ‘I’m doing better than OK. I’m doing well. I feel strong and healthy and confident and happy.’
The star regularly updates her followers on her illness and posted a video from her hospital bed earlier this summer.
She captioned the clip: ‘January 16, 2023. Surgery. I had a tumor in my head they wanted to remove and also biopsy.
‘I am clearly trying to be brave but I am petrified. The fear was overwhelming to me. Scared of all possible bad outcomes, worried about leaving my mom and how that would impact her.
‘Worried that I would come out of surgery not me anymore. This is what cancer can look like.’
