Shannen Doherty to Root for Ex-Husband on <i>DWTS</i>

When the new season of Dancing With the Stars premieres, Shannen Doherty will be rooting for her ex-husband, Ashley Hamilton.

"I'm sure the women will vote for him for sure because he's gorgeous," she told Usmagazine.com at the Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy party in West Hollywood Thursday. "So he'll do very well.”

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star and Hamilton, 34, got married in 1993 after knowing each other for only two weeks. The marriage lasted five months before Doherty filed for divorce. When they wed, he was only 19, and she was 22.

"That was like another life," Doherty, 38, told Us. "We were kids! We were kids, and he is a great guy."

But cheering on her ex is where it ends.

"I am so happy and in love!" Doherty told Us, referring to her photographer boyfriend Kurt Iswarienko.

Hamilton, the son of actor George Hamilton and Alana Stewart, will be following in his father's footsteps when he takes the stage on Sept. 21 on the ninth season premiere of the hit ABC show. George competed on the show's second season, and they both had pro dancer partner Edyta Sliwinska.
