  • TMZ is reporting that Adam Gregory (Ty, 90210) is being sued by his former manager for missing wages.

2. Jen dies after complications from a heart condition (Dawson’s Creek, Episode 6.24: …Must Come to an End)


…is actually an entire episode.

1. The school shooting (One Tree Hill, Episode 3.16: With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept)

This is easily the most moving, poignant and meaningful episode of any teen drama.  It is also the most tragic. This clip doesn’t even begin to do it justice.  I urge you to watch the entire episode as soon as possible.

  • Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair (such a moutful!) signed a two-year contract to be the creative head behind 90210.  Guess they’re not only planning on a season two, but a third one as well!
  • Sinclair told Entertainment Weekly she’s open to having Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) come on the show but she doesn’t want it to look like a “stunt.”
  • Star Magazine is reporting that Brittany Snow (American Dreams) has been cast to play Lily in the Gossip Girl spin-off.  Star, however, is a tabloid that most often gets things wrongs.  So until I see confirmation elsewhere, there is no way I am going to believe it.  Coincidentally, Snow is who Michael Ausiello said should get the part.
  • According to their official site, No Doubt will appear on the May 11th episode of Gossip Girl.  This marks their second appearance on a teen drama, the first being Dawson’s Creek.
  • BuddyTV asks some really interesting questions about the next episode of One Tree Hill (which doesn’t air til mid-March).
  • One of the local news stations in North Carolina says One Tree Hill’s seventh season renewal is good for Wilmington’s economy.
  • Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) will likely be cast in a new Courteney Cox show called Cougar Town.

Fact or Fiction: OTH Cast Rumors Update

26 02 2009

From Watch with Kristin:

If you keep tabs on the One Tree Hill fandom, you may have heard some scary rumors over the past couple of days. Yes, the CW ordered a seventh season of the series, but if you are to believe the Internets, it would be without the presence of stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton.

Could the show really go on without them? Here’s what we’re hearing…

Rumors of the actors leaving the series have been greatly exaggerated. While it’s true that the CW ordered a new season without having signed contracts with CMM and Burton, it turns out that’s because the CW doesn’t have signed contracts (yet) with any of the OTH talent.

Now, it’s certainly possible that CMM and Burton could leave (there’s no definite news either way), but overall, you can rest your pretty little heads about this issue, as we’ve been told by a reliable insider, “Obviously, most if not all [of the castmembers] are coming back.”


From OneTreeHillBlog.com:




Video is up at SGP blog

So, this is developing news.  I’m seeing links and reading here and at FF about a video that was posted of Hilarie on her SGP blog that has since been taken down.  From descriptions, it was clear she was not coming back to Season 7.  Fans describe what she says:

She talks about how she want people to know how much she loves OTH, the crew and Peyton Sawyer and how she wish she had creative control of the show. She also doesnt want anyone to think that she abandoning a show that has been good to her. She stills wants us to watch the show and support it. She did say had a good run. She didnt flat out say she was leaving, but it was kinda obvious she is. Leytonunit220@FF

We love you, Hilarie!!!

Edited: Don’t forget you can leave Hilarie messages at 828-398-0310 or denise.gideon1 on skype


My take: WTF is going on?!

26 02 2009
  • Entertainment Weekly and Zap2it have detailed lists of the air dates for all the major upcoming teen drama guest stars, like Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina, Gossip Girl), Tori Spelling (Donna, 90210) and Nick Lachey (One Tree Hill).
  • Trachtenberg says Georgina will be “reformed” when she returns to GG.  The article is followed by several GG promo clips.
  • TVGuide.com readers said Leyton (OTH), as well as Ethan & Annie (90210), are among the “worst TV couples.”  The site included Dawson & Joey (Dawson’s Creek), as well as Ryan & Marissa (The O.C.) and Vanessa & Nate (GG), on their own list.
  • Lindsay Price (Janet, Beverly Hills 90210) will have a job even if Lipstick Jungle doesn’t get renewed.  She’s been cast in an ABC pilot.
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) says he repeatedly goes through crises in his life.
  • Eddie Mills (Ty, Dawson’s Creek) talks to the Winston-Salem Journal about getting to go the Oscars.

Question: I heard that someone on 90210 is gonna die in the season finale. Who is it? –Isabela
It’s (drumroll, please) no one! At least not that I know of. In other news, Sara Foster has been cast as Naomi’s sister, Jen. She’ll debut in April and make a beeline for Mr. Matthews.

Question: You haven’t given us 90210 scoop in a while. Care to share some? –Derek
Word around the Peach Pit is that producers are once again pursuing Brian Austin Green for an episode. Timing may be in their favor: Sarah Connor Chronicles wrapped production last Friday.

Before Gossip Girl‘s cruelly long hiatus, a preview showed Uncle Jack telling Chuck what had happened between him and Blair on New Year’s. But the scene was cut from the episode, and now Jack is gone! Will this ever be brought up again? — H.C.
This reminds me of the time that my great-uncle Shorty, he of the “go-to-hell” pants, went missing at an ice-skating party. Fortunately, we just followed the Schnapps fumes down to his favorite thinking log and there he was, unconscious. Uncle Jack, on the other hand, is very much alive Down Under. My personal Gossip girl tells me we’ll revisit the Uncle F—a situation in a future episode, which doesn’t bode well for Blair. The real question: If we take that preview scene at face value, does that mean that Chuck already knows?
