Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth honored their co-star Denise Dossewho played Vice Principal Mrs. Teasley on the iconic 90s show, after her sister, Tracey Dowseannounced that she died of meningitis last week.
“We are so shocked,” Garth shared on the Aug. 16 episode of their 90210MG podcast. “She was only 64. It came out of nowhere. I read that she was in pain, that she was battling meningitis. And like, it caused her body to shut down and fall in a coma and she never woke up from the coma. It’s amazing to me, and I can’t imagine how devastating her family is, her sister. Everyone who knew her. It was just new shocking, shocking. This kind of death is the most difficult.
The women recalled their time on set working with Dowse, with Garth saying she “was like your oldest friend and she’d just show up on set and then she’d be in a scene and then it’d be like , it just felt so natural to be around her and work with her so easily.”
