Luke Perry’s character (Dylan Mckay) didn’t date Tori Spelling’s character (Donna Martin) in Beverly Hills 90210, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t find her marriage material.
On that awesome 90s show, he did indeed date Brenda Walsh (played by Shannen Doherty) before showing what a true manwhore he was by then dating Brenda’s BFF Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), so it perked my interest to hear that in real life, he’d choose Tori over both Shannen and Jennie.
Luke, 47, recently appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and when asked who he’d choose now between Brenda and Kelly he said, “Kelly, because she has more money!”
Host Andy Cohen then engaged Luke in a game of “Marry, Shag, Kill” with the actresses, not their characters, involved and when it came to “marry”, the actor replied, “I’d marry Tori because I told her dad I’d look out for her,” referring to the late TV producer Aaron Spelling. “That’s the best way for me to do that.”
He added, “I’d kill Shannon, because she’d want me to. And that’s the only reason. And what was the other one?”
“Shag,” Andy reminded him.
“Well, there you go!” said the actor of Jennie Garth, who has been recently linked to musician Jeremy Salken following her and Peter Facinelli’s split last year. (Fun fact: Luke did reveal that Jennie was a “good kisser” and that Shannen “smelled good”.)
As for Luke Perry, it seems he’s currently single. He was married to Minnie Sharp from 1993 to 2003 and during that time they had two kids, Jack, 15, and Sophie, 12.
Man, all this 90210 talk just really made me feel really old. Loved that show though!
