Jennie Garth, Good Morning America

Jennie Garth knows a thing or two about feuding with her costars, so who better to assess a cast's chemistry than the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star herself?

During an interview with Tori Spelling on Tuesday's Just Jenny show on Sirius XM, the 42-year-old actress was asked who she would like to see guest star on her new ABC Family series Mystery Girls and in the midst of answering the question, she ended up dissing the cast of the 90210 reboot.

"That's an example of a cast that really didn't have that chemistry," she said of actors Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, AnnaLynne McCord, Jessica Stroup, Michael Steger and Jessica Lowndes, who starred on the CW series from 2008 to 2013. "It's hard to find actors who have that."

 "It's like lightning in a bottle, you either have it or you don't," the blond beauty added.

So who does Garth believe would be best to appear on her new show alongside Spelling?

"We'd like to have Shannen [Doherty]," Garth said before Spelling added, "The original threesome. Me, Jen and Shannen, so that's how it should be on this show."

During their chat, which was dubbed, "9-0-2-1-0-IT-ALL," the ladies were also asked to pick who would play their famous characters in a movie.

As for the role of Donna Martin? "Someone that's silly…someone that's goofy, like Kristin Chenoweth," Spelling suggested.

And while Garth didn't have an answer for who should play Kelly Taylor (she finally chose Meryl Streep), the mother of three seemingly didn't have any trouble choosing whether she'd rather be stranded on an island with Shannen Doherty or Tiffani Thiessen.

"That's a tough question," she said (although we can sense her sarcasm). "I would rather be stranded with Shannen."

Despite Garth's diss of the 90210 reboot, the actress confessed that she doesn't miss "anything" about her days on the hit series.

"They didn't take our well-being into consideration at all," Jennie said.

Hey, at least they had chemistry.
