In a heartfelt episode of her podcast, “Let’s Be Clear With Shannen Doherty,” the actress opened up about her own funeral arrangements. Her conversation with Chris Cortazzo, a close friend and the executor of her will, revealed Doherty’s distinct preferences for this solemn event.
Doherty expressed a clear stance on the guest list for her funeral. She is keen on keeping away certain individuals whom she feels might not attend for genuine reasons. “There’s a lot of people that I think would show up that I don’t want there,” Doherty remarked. Her concern centers around the presence of those who may not have held her in high regard.
The actress elaborated on her reasons for such exclusions, citing that some might attend merely for appearances or out of a sense of obligation. “I don’t want them there because their reasons for showing up aren’t necessarily the best reasons,” she explained. This sentiment underscores her desire for an authentic and heartfelt gathering.
In envisioning her funeral, Doherty desires an ambiance filled with love, rather than sorrow or hidden reliefs. She hopes to avoid a scenario where attendees might secretly express relief at her passing. “I want my funeral to be like a love fest,” she stated, emphasizing her wish for a celebration marked by genuine affection and positive memories.
