There was an episode, when Steve and Brandon ran the newspaper together, so it was one of the last few seasons, and they were doing a story about or running an ad from this new sex shop place (lingerie, sex toys, that kind of place). Kelly was all offended and got off on some rant about porn and basically blamed Brandon for every guy who's ever read a Playboy, if I'm recalling the episode correctly.
Oh, that's right; I had totally blocked that episode out of my memory. Now it is starting to come back.
She did get all feminist on him, which isn't bad at all, 'cause I did agree with her, but still...she wasn't perfect, that's for sure.
This was when I started hating her too. She became a mean spoiled brat instead of just a spoiled BH brat. If Dylan paid attention to anything else besides her - Brenda, his 'stepmom' and stepsister, etc. - she freaked out and got all pouty.
Yeah, that was total character assassination IMO. Kelly just wasn't any fun anymore when they made her this holier than thou person. The TPTB at BH90210 needed to realize it was alright to have Kelly Taylor be a character with flaws -- a character is more relatable that way. I think she was always jealous of Brenda because I think deep down she knew that Dylan would always carry a torch for her, and that is why they put her with Brandon at the end of S4.
I remember hearing that Uncle Aaron tried to get Shannen to come back for S9, but that fell through (he instead got her a job on his new show Charmed
of course); that would've been awesome IMO.
Sure Shannen could be a jerk, but Brenda was so entertaining. So much good angst.
