Brenda & Kelly is a relationship on Beverly Hills, 90210, portrayed by Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth.


Brenda and Kelly initially call each other best friends, though this repeated statement comes off as that of teenagers who have yet to discover their true values and idea of what friendship means to them. In the beginning, Brenda is running to catch up with Kelly's glamorous lifestyle, and already in Season 1 the issue of Dylan McKay's affections arises. After Kelly and Dylan get together mid-Season 3 and revealed their summer affair to Brenda, the girls have a brief period of distance before reconciling somewhat[1] and trying to start over.

At many points throughout their first year in college (see video section), Kelly and Brenda's friendship is tested, mostly due to Kelly's jealousy of Brenda's significance to Dylan, and Kelly's lack of support of Brenda (fuelled by same). Kelly is rarely seen talking about or keeping in touch with Brenda much in college, although they part on good terms before Brenda leaves for London. Albeit, at this point Brenda & Dylan briefly reconcile, after Dylan and Kelly break up, and while Kelly is pursuing Brandon. It does not seem that Kelly ever knows of this. Two years later, Kelly learns that Brenda and Dylan are living together in London.[2]

Season 2[]

BrendaHow can you compare your problems with Jake who you barely even know to my problems with Dylan?! I mean you're not even up there with Donna and David!
DonnaWhat's that supposed to mean?

Season 3[]

Some best friend
—Kelly to Dylan, about herself[src]
If the two of you don't stop fighting you are gonna lose something that's a whole lot more important than some guy who walked out on everybody
—Donna to Kelly and Brenda[src]
Lately, between you and me, I've been thinking of how lucky Donna is to have David
—Kelly to Brenda[src]
KellyBrenda, please don't shut me out like this
BrendaKelly, you have Dylan now what more do you want?
―Parental Guidance Recommended

Season 4[]

Dylan[exasperated] What is your problem?
KellyYou wanna know what my problem is? I am sick and tired of stepping aside every time Brenda comes running to you with another crisis! Every time you call, he runs! Whether it's Palm Springs in the middle of the night or jail! Wherever it is, he runs! He's not your boyfriend anymore!!
BrendaAnd obviously you're not my friend anymore. Thanks again, Dylan. Bye

BrendaYou were jealous of me, why? I mean, you have Dylan
KellySomething tells me I won't have him forever. I can't help but think that you'll always be the one he'll remember as the great love of his life
―Cuffs and Links
Why don't you get a life of your own and stop trying to steal mine?
—Brenda to Kelly[src]
It's like, every time something good happens to you, part of me feels like, I'm getting left behind
