Candy Spelling is confident Hollywood's reformed bad girl Shannen Doherty can waltz her way to a Dancing With the Stars disco ball trophy.

"Shannen is good at anything she wants to do, so I think she will be good at this," Spelling beamed yesterday at Debbie Durkin's Eco-Oscars Green Carpet Hospitality Lounge in Beverly Hills.

With Doherty, 36, following in the DWTS footsteps of fellow 90210 alums Ian Ziering and Jennie Garth, we just had to ask Ms. Spelling if she thinks daughter Tori will be the next West Bev grad to slip on her dancin' shoes...

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like the 36-year-old married mommy of two has any plans to salsa with the best of them yet. "I think Tori's too busy with her show that she doesn't have time," Candy said. "She's also got her baby line and two more books coming out."

Even though Tori probably won't be a part of ABC's hit show anytime soon, Candy is proud of how far her daughter's 90210 costar Doherty has come since her hard-partying days, and she is excited to watch her take center stage.

"I think a lot of [young] people get caught up in a lot of things that go on in Hollywood, and as they get older it gets better," Candy said. "I can't wait to watch this season!"

We couldn't agree more. Doherty on Dancing gives us even more of a reason to tune in!
