Shannen Doherty is revealing new information surrounding her divorce and brain surgery on her podcast, ‘Let’s Be Clear With Shannen’.
“When I dropped down to 92 lbs. from chemo and was incredibly dehydrated, I had to still get out of bed. My husband at the time, sort of begging me to keep going and my mom literally trying to pick me up out of bed and get me to the doctor… at that point in time I thought that I wouldn’t survive it.”
She went onto explain that she learned her ex-husband, Kurt Iswarienko, had a two-year long affair, just before she went into brain surgery to remove a tumor.
“I went into that surgery early in the morning and I went in after I found out that my marriage was essentially over, that my husband had been carrying on an affair for two years. To not go in that surgery, even though, being very clear, he wanted to go, I couldn’t go into that surgery with him there. I felt so betrayed.”
“If you share 14 years together and you cheated, doesn’t that person deserve the absolute truth regardless of how much that hurts them?” she asked, before mentioning that she “also spoke to the girlfriend of two years that he cheated on me with.”
“I also take some responsibility for the demise of our marriage — actually that’s not true. Let me rephrase that, I do not take responsibility for the demise of our marriage, I take responsibility for some of the issues in our marriage,” she explained. “I take responsibility not only because of how I was but because of how cancer impacted my marriage and how it impacted him the second time around.”
