: I understand how the whole joke began, but one thing I don't quite get is the whole purpose of the joke. What makes it funny? Was Brenda the name of a character that Shannon Doherty played in a previous movie? Also, what makes her so offended by this comment? If somebody could clear this up for me and let me in on this "inside joke", I would be much appreciated.

that..Brenda was her character from Beverly Hills 90210 during the shows prime. I'm not sure what started it (I THINK it was Brenda's relationship with Luke Perry's character but I never watched the show so I'm only guessing) but, in America at least, there was a huge "I hate Brenda" campaign going on against the character and by extension Shannen Doherty.

So Rene's offended that Willam has mistaken her for Brenda because, I guess, she hates Brenda too.

I don't think there's really a "purpose to the joke" as you put it, I think, more than anything, it was a way for Kevin and Co to fuck with Ethan Suplee (Who they told that Shannen didn't know he was going to say it so he thought her reaction was genuine.)

I don't know, its so silly and out of nowhere that it makes me laugh regardless.
