RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Hey Korbi. So the evil Jen Clark is back in Beverly Hills, as you warned. What’s the big thing she’s hiding? -Melanie

An expanding belly. I mean, maybe she’s just been stress eating. Or, perhaps, she’s pregnant … with the baby of someone we know.

I was kind of annoyed to see Liam forgive Naomi on “90210″ because those two have no chemistry. -KT

Then you’ll be pleased to hear that Liomi isn’t long for this world. He may have said he forgives her, but I’m hearing that the last straw is right around the corner.

And, p.s., when stepdaddy dearest notices that those crazy expensive coins are missing, it’s Annie whom Liam will turn to for support.

Have we finally seen the last of psycho Jasper? -Beav

Nope! Jasper — or as I like to call him, Emily Valentine 2.0 — won’t go quietly. And he may even take a page from E.V. when it comes to revenge plots. You’ll see.

Any scoop on No Drama Adrianna? -Jeff M.

Ade’s going to start dating a musician pretty soon. His name is Javier and things between them will heat up quickly — and then burn out. I believe a reunion with Navid is in the cards before the season ends.

So is this Silver-Teddy thing finally fizzling thanks to Ryan O’Neal? -Michele

Teddy’s dad — played by TV legend Ryan O’Neal, yes — will do his best to mess things up, but ultimately, I think Silver and Teddy work it out. This looks like it could be a long-term relationship … though I am hearing something about a Dixon-Silver kiss in the near future.

Note:

While I don’t quite think Jasper is Emily Valentine 2.0, feel free to read my interview with her alter-ego, Christine Elise.




News Roundup: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, 90210 and The O.C.

26 04 2010
  • Zap2it has “12 steps to a better One Tree Hill,” and I largely agree with their gripes and suggestions.
  • Korbi and TV.com have interviews with James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill). Have you read my interview with him yet?
  • E! Online has an interview with Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill).
  • Examiner.com has an interview with Stephen Colletti (Chase, One Tree Hill).
  • The CW Source posted an interview with Tyler Hilton (Chris, One Tree Hill). Big oops: Hilton had no idea who Everly was (that’s the band Bethany Joy Galeotti [Haley, One Tree Hill]).
  • The News, a publication at the prep school Choate, has an interesting article on the negative effects of shows like Gossip Girl and 90210.
  • Kind of love this diagram of Gossip Girl hook-ups.
  • New York Magazine has a pretty funny piece on Gossip Girl and…chest hair.
  • MTV has an interview with Billy Baldwin (William, Gossip Girl).
  • NBC Chicago has an interview with AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210).
  • John Schneider (Jeffrey, 90210) will star in the film Doonby.
  • Southland, starring Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) and Michael Cudlitz (Tony, Beverly Hills 90210), has been renewed for another season on TNT.




News Roundup: Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek

13 04 2010
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.9 million viewers rounded up) climbed a bit in the ratings compared to last week.
  • Korbi is asking via poll if Blair should have forgiven Chuck.
  • Gossip Cop busted a Perez Hilton/In Touch story about Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) hooking up with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson.
  • The Daily News claims they have more details about the breakup between Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl).
  • You can enter a sweepstakes to win the dress Silver (Jessica Stroup, 90210) wore to the Winter Wonderland dance.
  • Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) will make his return to Smallville on Friday’s episode. Ausiello has an exclusive sneak peek of one of his scenes.
  • Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) has been cast in Southern Discomfort, an ABC pilot. This DOES NOT mean One Tree Hill is canceled or that Bush is abandoning ship. 1) OTH has not been canceled–or renewed. 2) If OTH is renewed, Bush is contractually obligated to do OTH. 3) She is simply preparing herself for what may be a reality. It’s a smart move.
  • Also noteworthy in the short article about the casting is Deadline’s take that OTH has a 50-50 chance at renewal. They also “presume” that it’s OTH versus Life Unexpected, which stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek). The Hollywood Reporter says the shows “are considered to be” in competition.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) won a Genie Award for his acting work in the movie One Week. He reportedly mentioned DC in his acceptance speech. He looks adorable in the photo.




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

7 04 2010
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s 90210 (1.3 million viewers) had another drop in the ratings compared to last week, hitting a new season- and series-low. Note, though, that coverage was only in 92 percent of the marketplace, not the usual 95. (I know the Chicagoland area, for instance, had the show preempted for sports.)
  • E! Online has 90210 spoilers.
  • The Stir has an interview with Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210).
  • I love working for Gossip Cop. I love it even more when it involves taking down Perez Hilton for a Beverly Hills 90210-related post.
  • Gossip Cop also busted another false Life & Style story today (though I wasn’t involved in this one; I did write the above PH one) about the marriage between Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and Dean McDermott.
  • Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and girlfriend Megan Fox made a Funny or Die video in support of public education.
  • Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210) participated in a Paley Center panel last night in support of her show, White Collar.
  • SoapNet now has a Beverly Hills 90210 I.Q. quiz to go along with the ones for The O.C. and One Tree Hill. I got a 100 percent and was told “AWESOME! Is your last name Walsh? You’re a Beverly Hills, 90210 expert, a fact sure to open doors and earn you friends wherever you go.” It was much easier than the other quizzes, IMO, but unfortunately, there were two inaccurate questions (though you can still figure out the answers) and one answer listed incorrectly on the results page.
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) is on the cover of Dirrty Glam magazine. Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) was on the last issue.
  • Bell was on The Late Late Show last night.
  • Korbi has an interview with Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl). Have you read my interview with her?
  • Your Love Is A Drug by Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) will be featured in next week’s episode of Gossip Girl.
  • TeenVogue.com has the video premiere of Light Outside by Wakey!Wakey!, which features Mike Grubbs (Grubbs, One Tree Hill).
  • Sixty percent of voters in Zap2it’s “kill” or “keep” poll want to keep One Tree Hill.
  • The final round of Save One Show has started and One Tree Hill, as well as Life Unexpected starring Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek), are still in the running. Also a contender is Chuck, which is executive produced by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.). The post includes written messages from both Schwartz and Mark Schwahn (creator, One Tree Hill), as well as the producers of the other shows, encouraging their fans to vote.
  • James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) tweeted a picture of the call sheet he found for the original DC pilot.

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

More “90210″ please, you haven’t done a Q&A in a while. -Casey
This week’s hour will feature the rebound of Mr. Navid Shirazi. His suspension for coke possession is finally up and he starts dating that new chick, Lila… who ends up having a connection to his ex, Adrianna, that is hardly comfortable.

How much trouble is Dixon’s birth mom going to cause now that she’s in Bev Hills? -RR
Mother and son will have some trouble connecting at first, but their mutual love of basketball may ease a bit of the awkwardness. Unfortunately, I’m hearing her influence may indirectly incite an online gambling addiction in Dix.

Are we finally rid of that creep Jasper? Tell me it’s over between him and Annie. -P

I can tell you no such thing. Creep be stalkin’ little miss Wilson this week. He won’t let up that easy.

Teddy and Silver on “90210″? Will it last? -Grace
There will be bumps in the road. Silver actually sends Gia (Rumer Willis) on a recon mission this week to find out if he might already be cheating on her. It doesn’t go over well. But I think these two are going to go the distance despite their issues.

Any “90210″ scoop? -JenniferC
With Dixon’s biological mom staying at their house and Debbie’s yoga instructor (Greg Vaughan) being more supportive of Deb’s feelings than Harry, we’re going to start seeing the first major cracks in the Wilsons’ marriage…

Only thing really new here is the gambling thing with Dixon. And to that I say, see Brandon’s storylines in seasons 3 and 6 of Beverly Hills 90210.

  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl (1.7 million viewers) dropped quite significantly in the ratings compared to the last episode and dropped to what I’m pretty sure is a series-low. Also noteworthy: A) this is lower than One Tree Hill’s series-low a few weeks ag0 (though OTH usually outperforms GG to begin with), B) this is lower than Life Unexpected’s ratings for last night, and C) the GG and LUX ratings are both significantly lower than the ratings ABCFamily’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Make It Or Break It got.
  • Parade.com has an interview with Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl).
  • Hilary Duff (Olivia, Gossip Girl) is writing a book series for young adults.

  • Korbi has a video interview with Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210).
  • The CW Source has a spoiler-filled video interview with Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210). (Not sure why Zap2it has it and I can’t find it on the Source’s site or YT page.)
  • The CW Source also has a second part to their interview with Michael Steger (Navid, 90210).
  • Starpulse has an article on Steger.
  • The official One Tree Hill Twitter account will be tweeting videos each day as the show films in Utah and continuing until the hiatus ends on April 26.

News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl and Dawson’s Creek

23 02 2010
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (2.2 million viewers) rose a bit in the ratings compared to last week. The CW sent out a press release touting the ratings increase–but remember, last week was a season- and (I think) series-low and 2.2 is about the season average so this isn’t much to brag about. The network also says this is the highest rating since Dec. 7, but three out of the last five episodes (not including this one) had a 2.2 (rounded) rating so I don’t get that part, and considering the Dec. 7 rating was 2.6, this, again, isn’t brag-worthy.
  • Mike Grubbs (Grubbs, One Tree Hill) has a funny vlog that sorta kinda features James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill).
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill).
  • Korbi is asking which Tuesday show you miss the most and 90210 is one of the options.
  • Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl) spoke at Barnard, her alma mater, last weekend.
  • The Celebrity Cafe has an interview with James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek).
  • IFC.com has an interesting article on Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) and her career.

  • EW.com gave Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) a B+ for his Calvin Klein underwear ad campaign.
  • Examiner.com spoke with the some of the One Tree Hill cast about their participation in the Wilmington police fundraiser this past weekend.
  • Korbi has a video interview with Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek). Warning: the beginning almost warrants  an X rating.
  • The Fresno Bee has an article on Oliver Hudson (Eddie, Dawson’s Creek) and Rules of Engagement, which also stars Bianca Kajlich (Natasha, Dawson’s Creek).




News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek

18 02 2010
  • Korbi is asking readers if One Tree Hill should return for an 8th season.
  • Hollywood Life (::cringe::) has an article in support of an 8th season (which really stems from an unfair poll they ran last week).
  • The TV Addict also has piece supporting One Tree Hill (and Life Unexpected).
  • Us Weekly (::shudder::) has a short interview with Shantel VanSanten (Quinn, One Tree Hill).
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) is on the cover of Shape Magazine, which Crushable.com thinks was photo-shopped.
  • John Schneider (Liam’s step-dad, 90210) will star in a pilot for Spike called Back Nine.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) spoke to PEOPLE.com about her fashion style and her admiration of Lady Gaga.
  • ShelterPop has an article on the Beverly Hills 90210 beach apartment being for sale. In addition to saying that it is indeed separate apartments (the listing I posted earlier this month said it was one house), there’s a picture of the inside–and it looks nothing like what we saw on the show. The intro also describes it as “Donna and David’s beachfront pad”–an odd choice considering David lived there for just one season while Donna and Kelly lived there, albeit off-and-on, for six.
  • The Wall Street Journal has an interview with Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) about Southland.
  • Shutter Island, starring Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) will be released in theaters tomorrow.
