Shannen Doherty disses out Jason Priestley's 2014 memoir where the 90210 alum was described as being a bad girl in more ways than one.

Doherty conjectures that the reason for the mainly fictional description of her in the book was due to Priestley's 2002 car accident that has inspired him to tell lies.

In an interview with Sirius XM's Just Jenny host, Jenny Hutt, the actress explained how she adores Priestley and the aftermath of the accident, "I love Jason, but you know he had a car accident, a racing accident, and I think maybe parts of his memory got altered from that," Doherty told the host of the program, which aired last night. "Everybody changes. They have their own perception of the truth. His is definitely different than mine."

The actor who plays Dylan Walsh in the popular teen drama back in the 1990's had a major near-fatal car crash in August of 2002 that left him with a fractured spine and a serious head injury. At the time, he crashed his race car into the wall during the Indy Racing Infiniti Pro Series at Kentucky Speedway while going 180 mph.

Doherty and Priestley play fraternal twin siblings, Brenda and Dylan Walsh. Following Doherty's behind-the-scenes drama, she was written off the show in the fourth season, that left a bad taste in the mouths of some of her co-stars, particularly Priestley. In his memoir, he specifically opened up about her reaction when Fox executives sent the stars a private jet for a last-minute New York City business meeting.

"I could not believe my ears at Shannen's very first words after she boarded," Priestley wrote. "Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, 'Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?' She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn't really tell if Shannen was kidding or not."

Since the show went off the air, the cast had gone separate ways and Doherty mentions that only Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Jennie Garth are the three that she has remained close with.
