Shannen Doherty: Dad changed mind about 'Dancing with the Stars'
By Christopher Rocchio, 03/03/2010
Despite suffering stage fright, Shannen Doherty finally decided to do Dancing with the Stars after her father suffered a near-fatal stroke on Christmas.
"He lost his speech, he wasn't mobile. He was really struggling, and still is," she told Peoplein a Tuesday report.
"When I mentioned [Dancing with the Stars] to him, he got really excited, and he wanted me to do it. I thought, if my dad can fight through having a stroke and the loss of being able to communicate, I think I can do this for him. So I figured I'm going to get over my fear for him."
