The mother of four (and soon-to-be five) chatted with E! News' Zuri Hall and couldn't help but get emotional when talking about Doherty, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
"I haven't personally seen her, but I, obviously, have followed her fight," Spelling said. "It's been amazing how she's done it through social media. I give her props for that. I think she's standing up for a lot of women everywhere who are fighting that battle."

Spelling continued, "She's doing a brave and wonderful job, and we obviously support her. We've all been talking and supporting her from afar. It's really hard to know what to do when someone's going through that—if they want people there or not there. But I think she's very brave and I admire her so much."
And she's not the only friend showing her support for Doherty during this trying time.
Just last week, Sarah Michelle Gellar posted a photo on Instagram, praising Doherty for being such an inspiration to women. The actress wrote, "To my left is the @theshando, my friend who is kicking cancer in the you know what. But more than that, she is sharing her battle, so people fighting this horrible disease know they are not alone. I am inspired by her on the daily."
Doherty reposted the same photo, thanking her friend for her constant support.
"It's so important when battling a disease like cancer to have friends like @sarahmgellar," she captioned the picture. "Thank you for always having my back and educating all about this disease. Love you."
