The only thing suprising about Shannen Doherty's planned reality series is that it took this long for it to happen.

WEtv will follow Doherty as she plans her wedding to celebrity photographer Kurt Iswarienko - while they are also in the midst of renovating their Malibu home.

There is bound to be fireworks as one of TV's original drama queens deals with situations that are stressful for even the mild-mannered.

Production for the show begins in August, and it is intended to be only a season long at this point - the finale will coincide with the couple tying the knot. Assuming they make it all the way down the aisle, of course: Shannen has already had one engagement fizzle before the big day, and neither of her two previous marriages lasted more than a year.

In 1993, when Shannen was still starring as Brenda Walsh on 90210, her fiancee Dean Factor (heir to the Max Factor cosmetics empire) called off their engagement and filed an order of protection against her after she allegedly threatened him with a gun and a promise that she would hire a group of men to sodomize him.

Not long afterwards, Shannen was married to Ashley Hamilton (George Hamilton's son) after a whirlwind two-week courtship - not surprisingly, the marriage only lasted a few months. In 2002, she married poker player Rick Salomon - of Paris Hilton sex tape fame - only to have it annulled a year later.

Doherty has been prone to professional breakups as well.  Despite being a major cast member, Shannen's continuous conflicts with castmates, drug and alcohol use, and Playboy spread led to her eventual firing from 90210 in 1994.

She returned to the small screen in 1998, when Aaron Spelling gave her another chance and cast her as one of the sister witches in the WB series Charmed. But conflicts with cast members again - Alyssa Milano, this time - led to her abrupt departure and replacement in 2001.

So far, no one has been fired from their own reality series, but if anyone can do it, Shannen can.

But perhaps Doherty has mellowed after years out of the spotlight. The actress is now 40, and may be ready to settle down without drama. She could also be motivated by an opportunity to revamp her image, after being tabloid fodder in a pre-Twitter era when celebrities did not have as much ability as they do know to discret rumors and manage their image.

WEtv is home to the popular series Bridezillas.
