(Newser) – Actress Shannen Doherty was the first celebrity eliminated from the new season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. She and professional partner Mark Ballas were axed during tonight's episode. "Dancing isn't really my thing," she said after learning her fate. "I did it for my dad." The 38-year-old Charmed and 90210 star said last week that she joined the Dancing cast to honor her father, a big fan of the show who recently suffered a stroke. He sat in the audience, watching his daughter perform.
