Brandon and Brenda Walsh always seemed to have a pretty solid relationship on "Beverly Hills, 90210," but offscreen, the relationship between Jason Priestley and Shannen Doherty was a little more volatile.

In his new tell-all, "Jason Priestley: A Memoir," which hits shelves on May 6, Priestley joins the chorus of cast members who have spoken out against Doherty's on-set behaviour during the '90s teen drama. In an excerpt obtained by Us Weekly, he discusses the duo being sent on a private jet to New York to meet with advertisers.

"I could not believe my ears at Shannen's very first words after she boarded," Priestley writes. "Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, 'Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?' She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn't really tell if Shannen was kidding or not."

Priestley added that Doherty then complained "about the short notice and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else."

This could be a simple case of he said-she said, but Priestley is not the only cast member to call out Doherty for her bad behaviour. In March 2014, Jennie Garth, who played Brenda's best friend Kelly on the show, recalled how the duo fought on set.

"Shannen and I are both Aries women, we're both very strong, independent women, so we butt heads a lot," she told E! News. "Now, as grown women, we happen to get along as well."

The duo has since put their differences behind them and had no trouble when they reprised their characters for the new "90210" in 2008. Doherty was subsequently invited to Garth's 40th birthday in 2012. They then visited fellow cast member Ian Ziering's Chippendale's show in Las Vegas in 2013.

In 2008, Tori Spelling, who played Brenda's best friend Donna on the show, also discussed Doherty's antics in her memoir "sTori Telling."

"Shannen had everything, but she could be arrogant and carefree," Spelling wrote. "Jennie was outspoken when she thought Shannen was out of line. Sometimes they got along, but there were explosions. Once they got into a fistfight."

The duo later denied that ever happened.

"Scratching? I'm not going to deny that," Garth told Entertainment Weekly in 2008.

Perhaps Priestley will unveil his war wounds in his book as well! We'll have to wait until his memoir is released on May 6 to find out.
