I slept pretty late last night just watching Charmed. Well, any guy could easily spend the night out watching simultaneous series of Charmed for that matter. On my third episode, i snapped out an idea about posting about someone in the series on this blog. I did my research here and there and well, its time to give it out to you.

Shannen Doherty or popularly known as Prue Halliwell in the series is both an actress and a director. She gained enough recognition by playing the role of Brenda Walsh in another hit series, Beverly Hills 90210, and as a sidenote trivia, this series made Beverly Hills the most famous zip code in the US. Moving on, she had a couple of personal issues to deal with - violence. She got herself into several night club fights both with non-celebrities and celebrities. Let me tell you, she punched Tara Reid right in the face when Reid was so drunk and she fell near her. Oh boy! ive got another idea for the next post. lol

So much so with her personal life, now lets move on to her disease. Crohn's disease is a chronic, episodic, inflammatory condition of the gastro-intertinal tract characterized by transmural inflammation (affecting the entire wall of the involved bowel) and skip lesions (areas of inflammation with areas of normal lining between). Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus; as a result, the symptoms of Crohn's disease vary between affected individuals. The main gastrointestinal symptoms are abdominal pain or constipation, and weight loss. Crohn's disease can also cause complications outside of the gastrointestinal tract such as skin rashes, arthritis, and inflammation of the eye. source: Wikipedia

She got her fame onot only from acting and directing talents but also for her brawling abilities. But on this blog, when we talk about Crohn's Disease, she is definitely the undisputed champion of Hollywood.

    Your facts are incorrect... Crohn's disease symptoms include abdominal pain and DIARRHEA not constipation...

    Hi, I was diagnosed with Crohn's 15 years ago. Constipation is not a common symptom of Crohn's Disease. Bowel obstructions are often mistaken for constipation, because the results are the same (no poop). But constipation is caused by a dehydrated bowel, whereas obstruction is when things get stuck because of the intestinal strictures caused by CD. Obstruction is not constipation, they are clinically different. Just FYI. :)
