Donna Martin may have been a virgin until season 78 on Beverly Hills, 90210, but apparently she already knew a thing or two about, um, pleasuring herself!
While on the Z100 radio morning show in NYC, Steve Sanders — aka Ian Ziering — revealed a seriously awesome fact about the “Donna Martin Graduates” episode (arguably the most famous episode — personally, I’ll never forget the time Kelly Skank Taylor stole Dylan from Brenda).
“Donna Martin masturbates is what we were saying on that day,” Ian told host Elvis Duran, one year after uber hottie Brandon Walsh — aka Jason Priestley — confirmed it. “The director was kind of upset with us, but we wouldn’t say it right. We were just having a good time.”
That episode just seriously increased in awesomeness much to David Silver’s dismay because Donna's drunkness = no sex with the eternal virgin. Donna, it was SO worth you getting hammered at prom and almost not graduating.
Speaking of Brandon Walsh, Ian — who’s currently starring and kicking ass on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ — also revealed some behind-the-scenes drama with Jason and another co-star — you guessed it — Shannen Doherty aka the AMAZING Brenda Walsh (don’t try and fight me on that, you’ll lose).
“So, very early on in the filming, no one knew how old Jason Priestley was and he wouldn’t tell anybody his age; he was keeping that a secret,” he told Elvis. “One day we’re on set and Shannen [Doherty] comes to set and says, ‘Haha! I know how old you are, you’re 21-years-old! And Jason, said ‘How do you know that?’ She said, ‘Well I went into your dressing room and I went into your wallet and looked at your license!”

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I LOVE BRENDA WALSH — BAD HAIR, ATTITUDE AND ALL.
“Smoke came out of Jason’s ears, and he grabbed her and said, ‘If you ever go into my dressing room again, I swear to God!’ It was some serious drama!” said the actor, who recently signed up for Syfy’s ‘Sharknado 3.’
Is it just me, or does that "grabbing" immediately make you think of Dylan McKay and Brenda’s first date? You remember…Brenda went back to his lush hotel pad and his dad got into it with him so BAD that bad ass Dylan McKay poured himself a drink and Brenda ran out in fear and he chased after her and then he grabbed her and then she screamed ‘Stop yelling at me!’ and then he threw a plant and she ran off in fear and then he caught up with her and she told him “You’re scaring me!” and then he had a mental breakdown about his dad and then the pair embraced and then they had the best relationship EVER until Brenda went to Paris with duh Donna and Kelly Taylor RUINED IT ALL. (That fact makes me do crazy things, like write run-on sentences in a fit of passion.)
Yeah, you can relive that epic-ness by skipping the 2:40 mark in the video below — thank me later:
