Shucking off the "Amber" portion of her name, Tiffani Thiessen joins the cast as "Valerie Malone" moves into Brenda's old room at the Walsh household in the 5th Season debut of Beverly Hills, 90210. Shannen Doherty left the show after four seasons, and Thiessen's "Val" came in as a scheming bad girl who quickly was at odds with Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth).
