[Blind Gossip] It’s easy to critique the looks of female celebrities if they don’t look camera-ready every minute of the day.
One publication recently pointed out that an actress who starred on a very popular TV show in the 1990s looked exhausted and had messy hair.
They might not have been so critical if they knew that she is actually being treated for cancer… and is wearing a hairpiece to try to hide her hair loss.

[Optional] OK to criticize someone for their appearance when they are ill?
It’s Shannen Doherty!
Last month, several outlets criticized Doherty for her “messy hair” and for looking “tired and drawn” during personal appearances.
Perhaps the authors who criticized Doherty were not aware that that the former Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed star has been undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer for the past year.
Doherty has always been known for her thick, gorgeous mane, so it must have been very upsetting for her to watch her hair fall out. While she has been wearing a wig in public for several months, she finally took the big step of shaving off all of her hair this week. Doherty got a hug from her mom, and then showed off her newly-shaved head on Instagram.
Brave girl. We wish Shannen well in her recovery!
