Shannen Doherty 'regrets hurting parents'
Shannen Doherty has learned to be "more honest with herself."
The 40-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress lived a wild life in the past.
Shannen has forgiven herself for her transgressions, but she hopes her mum and dad will too.
"My parents raised me better than [the person I portrayed in the media], and I regret ever hurting my parents," Shannen said on American TV programme The Talk. "What's funny is the older you get, the more honest [with yourself] I think you actually become."
Shannen also feels remorse for passing on some potentially profitable professional paths.
"I sit here and go, 'Wow, did I blow some major opportunities', " she shared.
"I [blew] some huge opportunities in my career [that] I've had to work very, very hard to try and get back."
"[Marriage is] phenomenal," she gushed.
Shannen's new reality show Shannen Says will premiere on WEtv next Tuesday.
