News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and More

16 08 2010
  • Ausiello has a “first look” at the Gossip Girl season 4 trailer. Tons of spoilers involved, so watch at your own risk.
  • Sam Page has been cast on Gossip Girl in a recurring role. Again, spoilers involved, so read at your own risk.
  • Kelly Rutherford (Lily, Gossip Girl) is featured in the new ad campaign for Monica Rich Kosann jewelry.
  • Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) will star in Dance Of The Mirlitons.
  • Planet Green has an interview with Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) about the crisis in the Gulf.
  • Nichols tweeted today that he’s going to shoot the movie LOL this week.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier (Nicki, One Tree Hill) is now on Twitter. I’ve added her to the Twitter Directory.
  • Adrian Grenier and his band The Honey Brothers will appear on 90210. Once again, spoilers involved, so read at your own risk.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted some interesting thoughts about 90210’s upcoming gay storyline. He also spoke to JustJared about it, though there is spoilish info here so read both at your own risk.
  • Zap2it is reporting that Ryan O’Neal (Spence, 90210) won’t be back. So I guess that’s one element of the above that we won’t actually see.
  • JustJared claims Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) and Dustin Milligan (Ethan, 90210) have split. I have not seen this confirmed anywhere yet.
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) is SoapNet’s Weekly Crush.
  • Luke Perry (Dylan, Beverly Hills 90210) appears in the first episode of NBC.com’s new webseries, FCU: Fact Checkers Unit. It was pretty funny, though they wasted the very obvious opportunity for a Dylan joke.
  • BlackBook has an interesting interview with Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.).
  • New York magazine has a great interview with Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek). She’s on the cover of the new issue.

  • Kristin tweeted that Gossip Girl’s Chuck and Blair are not the subject of her wedding spoiler.
  • Josh Schwartz (executive producer, The O.C.) had tweeted this morning that there is “no truth” to the rumor that Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) has asked to have her character killed so she could leave the show BUT several hours later I saw that the tweet was deleted. When I checked with The CW earlier this week about this rumor, they issued a “no comment.” Interpret as you wish.
  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) will present at the MTV Video Music Awards next month.
  • Badgley did a feature for the launch issue of Bullet magazine, but I don’t believe it’s out yet. There’s a behind-the-scenes video where he talks about the photo shoot and shows off some of his pian0-playing and singing skills.
  • Luke Kleintank (Elliott, Gossip Girl) has been cast on The Young And The Restless.
  • Star News came up with an interesting list of 5 crossover ideas for One Tree Hill.
  • JustJared claims Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) will present the Breakthrough in Green Innovation award to Global Green at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards this weekend. He apparently previously reported that Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) will get the Breakthrough Actress in Film award while AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) will get the Breakthrough Standout Performance award.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted that he will be part of the city of Beverly Hills’ 9.02.10 Day celebrations, and he’s hosting a contest related to it.
  • SoapNet will have a Beverly Hills 90210 “Labor Of Love” marathon on Labor Day with Kelly-Dylan season 3 episodes. I could not be any happier. (Well, I’d be happier it if it was a super-long marathon about their whole relationship over the 10 seasons but…this…is…awesome!)
  • EW.com has a “first look” at Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) on Desperate Housewives.
  • The Associated Press has an article about Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) returning to General Hospital.
  • According to TVGuide.com, Shailene Woodley (Kaitlin, The O.C.) makes $40,000 per an episode for The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, while one-time Beverly Hills 90210 guest star Ashley Tisdale will be making $30,000 an episode for The CW’s Hellcats.
  • Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) will be performing in The Glass Menagerie in California from September 1 to October 17.
  • Gossip Cop and I busted a false National Enquirer story claiming Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) and husband Tom Cruise are feuding over a smoking addiction.

  • I will be resuming my weekly teen drama trivia on Twitter next Tuesday Monday. Will post details soon.
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) didn’t co-host The View this morning as planned as she was sick. She still had her book signing, though, and it was pretty fab. Check out my Twitter feed for details. I will post “cliffnotes” on the book soon.
  • Spelling will be on the Today Show tomorrow.
  • Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210) welcomed a baby girl this morning.
  • JustJared has a brief interview with Connor Paolo (Eric, Gossip Girl).

  • My 90210 reaction post will be delayed due to a screw up with my DVR. My apologies.
  • Last night’s 90210 (1.5 million viewers rounded up) dropped a tiny bit in the ratings compared to last week, hitting a new season- and series-low. If you recall, last week also rounded to 1.5, but the unrounded number this time is even lower (1.480 versus 1.508).
  • EW.com has an interview with Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) about Dancing With The Stars.
  • Doherty apparently declined to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, which all other eliminated contestants have done in the past, but she did appear on Good Morning America this morning.
  • My colleagues at Gossip Cop had the task of busting another false Doherty rumor.
  • Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210) had a baby shower hosted by Naomi Lowde, wife of Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Thiessen is on the cover of the May issue of Pregnancy magazine.
  • CelebrityBabyScoop.com has an interview with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • PEOPLE.com has a photo of Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) in the Op campaign. There’s more on the Op site, including ones featuring Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210).
  • One Tree Hill is one of the top 5 shows getting the most votes so far in Kristin’s Save One Show campaign.
  • Twenty-seven percent of “media buyers” surveyed believe One Tree Hill is the veteran show most at-risk for cancellation.
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), and Enation, who have been seen and heard on One Tree Hill (and includes Galeotti’s hubby Michael!), have booked a joint concert date for late August in South Dakota. Let’s hope more are coming!
  • SoapNet has an O.C. I.Q. quiz. Unlike the One Tree Hill one, I only got a 7o percent this time! I was told: “You know your OC well enough to hang with the gang at Newport Union, but if you want to crack Harbor High’s inner circle, you might need to brush up.” Ouch.
  • JustJared has–dare I say it–a pretty good interview with Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.).
  • PEOPLE.com has details on the divorce settlement between James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) and his soon-to-be ex-wife.

  • Korbi has a cute video interview with Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill).
  • JustJared (::cringe::) has an interview with Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill).
  • Watched the premiere of How To Make It In America, starring Bryan Greenberg (Jake, One Tree Hill) and saw Samaire Armstrong (Anna, The O.C.) was also in it. I don’t think she’ll be in future episodes, though.
  • The Los Angeles Times has a great interview with Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek). A few interesting DC things in there.
  • OK! Magazine (::groan::) has an interview with James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek).

  • Examiner.com has an article on some of the One Tree Hill stars participating in a fundraiser for the Officer Down Memorial Wall Project.
  • Mike Grubbs (Grubbs, One Tree Hill) was asked to give a Grammys prediction.
  • A baseball trivia question in my local newspaper related to Beverly Hills 90210: Which multi-time Most Valuable Player appeared on BH90210? The answer is Barry Bonds. I’ll definitely be adding that to my list of trivia questions!
  • Wesleyan’s school paper has an article comparing Gossip Girl the TV series versus its print counterpart.
  • Defamer has an interesting article on Twelve, which stars Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl). There’s also a few references to The O.C.
  • Hate linking to them but JustJared has a brief interview with Crawford.
  • The Los Angeles Times has an article on The Romantics, which stars Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) and Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.).

  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of the February issue of Seventeen. The picture is very “early season 1 Jenny.” The accompanying video is…not.
  • Momsen also created a playlist on MySpace of music she “can’t stop listening to right now!”
  • E! Online has a brief interview with Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl). I assume the pregnancy she mentioned on the show is actually Dorota and not quite the spoiler the interviewer thought it was. We’ll see, though!
  • Hate linking to them but apparently Meester and Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) were at a club opening the other night and the photo is kind of cute.
  • Lutz will also be hosting JustJared’s New Year’s Eve event.
  • The CW is hosting a contest where the winners get a trip to the set of One Tree Hill for the season finale. Note the word “season.”
  • Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) has a new vlog on the SoGoPro site.
