Top 10 Real-Life Relationships Pt. 5

26 04 2009

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4

The countdown concludes today with one seemingly very happy couple and the saddest love story to come out of the teen drama world.

2. Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) and Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl)


Though they knew each other already, Lively and Bagdley didn’t began dating until season one of Gossip Girl. When I interviewed Bagdley last year he wouldn’t confirm or deny the relationship,but the two have slowly opened up about it to the media.  From a Details magazine article: “Penn, who was home-schooled with Blake a decade ago, when both were child actors, calls the relationship ‘wonderful and also something to grapple with’ in terms of mixing work and pleasure. But he won’t say more. ‘You have to draw the line somewhere. I’m fine talking about my family and personal history, because it humanizes you. But I have to save some shit for me.'”

1. Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill) and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill)


Murray and Bush hold the honor of being the only teen drama couple to be married–and divorced.  The two met on One Tree Hill in 2003 and married in 2005.  But the wedded bliss was short-lived: Bush asked for an annulment just 5 months later.  Though neither have ever explicitly said the cause of the separation, rumors persist that Murray cheated on her.  But since the end of their relationship, the two have shared many love scenes on the show, which I give them both a lot of credit for.  I cannot imagine having to pretend to be in love and kiss the person that broke your heart.  Murray said in an interview last year that “It’s one of those things where you grow up a lot faster. You’re put in a situation where you’re gonna deal with things right in your face. But I think [Sophia and I] are both professional and mature enough to get through it. And now it’s just easy. We’re just friends. And she’s got James, and James and I are friends. It’s just a little tight group in Wilmington.”  Murray got engaged again not long after ending things with Bush, this time to Kenzie Dalton, a sometimes-extra on the show.

Top 10 Real-Life Relationships Pt. 4

25 04 2009

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

Two kinds of love today: young love and baby love!

4. Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) and Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek)


Here’s what makes this one interesting: they got together and broke up before their characters ever did on the show! AWKWARD!   But Holmes reportedly told Rolling Stone, “I fell in love, I had my first love and it was something so incredible and indescribable that I will treasure it always. I feel so fortunate because he’s now one of my best friends.”

3. Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210)

Private House

BAG’s second appearance on this list has a special distinction: he and Marcil are the only real-life teen drama couple to have a child.  They met on the set of 90210 in 1999.  Kassius was born in 2002 but the relationship ended a year later.  They seem to remain on good terms, though, with Marcil calling him “amazing” in a recent interview.  Their characters also had a short-lived relationship on the show.

Top 10 Real-Life Relationships Pt. 3

24 04 2009

Part 1, Part 2

Part three of my countdown focuses on a fairly new couple and one that still leaves me feeling heartbroken.

6. Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill)


Reports that these two are currently dating started circulating in late 2007 and continue still to this day, though neither has commented publicly about it.

5. Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) and Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.)


Bilson and Brody began dating not long after The O.C. debuted in 2003.  Their characters had an on-off relationship throughout the series, and the couple themselves broke up towards the end of 2006 (though fans were strongly rooting for them!).  During their relationship, they lived together and co-owned two dogs. From a New York Post article: “They say, ‘Don’t date your co-star,’ but that’s who you’re around,” says Rachel. “If you’re in an office, and you see someone every day and you click well, you’ll start dating. It’s the same thing.” The two lived together, and after their breakup in December 2006, they divided belongings and dogs—Adam took pit bull Penny Lane, and Rachel walked away with Thurmen. “Oh yeah, during the divorce, that was a given.”

Tuesday Night Reaction

23 04 2009

90210 (Between a Sign and a Hard Place)

  • This is Tori’s second episode and her last for at least this season.
  • Q1: “Those aren’t bugs; that’s pulp.”–Silver
  • Sammy is pretty cute.  Glad to see Ruby again.
  • Donna looks fantastic.  Like seeing her in the mom role.
  • How long has it been since the last episode?  Are Tori and Ruby still staying in Sammy’s room?
  • Silver seems like she’s hesitant to return to school.
  • Wonder if Harry and Debbie know Dixon sought out his birth mom.
  • It’s probably pretty uncommon to see a yard sale in Beverly Hills.
  • We know Annie and Naomi’s friendship won’t last.
  • Q2: “You’re ready to be a girl’s girl.”  “Bring on the Barbie dolls.”–Debbie and Annie
  • Annie and Naomi’s friendship seems kind of awkward.
  • Bella Cruise name-dropped.  Did viewers pick up on who that is?
  • Annie’s trying to hard.  Naomi isn’t even worth it.
  • OK, I’ll give you this: skipping class to go to the beach is something Dylan would do.
  • Like seeing Navid taking care of Adrianna.
  • Guess Donna’s moving forward with her store.
  • Or sabotaging it?  I’m confused.
  • How long ago did D & D move to Japan?  Dialogue suggests something like 4 years…
  • Q3: “I just miss it here.  I want to come home.”–Donna
  • Q4: “So if I move back here, what does that mean? Divorce?”–Donna
  • Gossip Girl promo
  • Back from the beach already?  Oh, apparently the school day is over.
  • This is an interesting new side of Ethan.
  • The Peach Pit is back!  Where’s Nat?
  • That scene with the mean girls was very GG-esque.
  • Silver not wanting to back to school where everyone will be talking about her reminds when Marissa (on The O.C.) didn’t want to go back after Trey’s shooting.
  • So Dixon and Silver are back together, right?
  • Really don’t need stupid Debbie and Harry scenes.
  • Guess Naomi’s dad will be back now that he has a sex scandal!
  • Funny that Donna is going to a psychic because, according to her book, Tori did too!
  • LOL Man with a sixpack!
  • GG promo
  • I like Naomi’s 80s look.
  • I’ve never been good at foosball.
  • Will Annie spill the beans about Naomi’s father?
  • Why are they so enthusiastic about foosball??
  • LOL Adrianna trying to play adoption matchmaker.
  • Distancing herself from the baby probably won’t work.
  • I like seeing Kelly and Donna chat like old times.
  • Why is Silver in a church?
  • Ah, so Annie isn’t the one who breaks the news.  Naomi’s father is so scummy!
  • Surprised that Kelly (I guess) is letting Silver watch Sammy and Ruby.
  • Accidentally ending up in a “gay place” has been done before on Beverly Hills 90210: in season 4 Steve and Brandon ended up in a gay cafe and in season 5 David and Clare mistakenly invited a lesbian group to a rave.
  • Wish Kelly and Donna had a Peach Pit scene.  With Nat, of course.
  • Guess Liam’s back to giving Naomi the cold shoulder.
  • Yikes!  Naomi knows Annie knew all along.  Annie made a bad choice.  A few bad choices, actually.
  • Kelly wants Donna to move back and leave David?
  • So Naomi IS moving.  But where?
  • Love how Annie just offers her house without even checking with her parents.
  • Annie and Naomi are kind of flirting.  Guess you can argue Donna and Kelly did, too.
  • Adrianna is visibly uncomfortable interviewing these prospective parents.
  • The dog question is pretty fair, IMO.
  • Why are they grunting in foosball?  And who plays to 70?  And why are they acting like little schoolgirls?
  • How is the store opening already?!
  • Donna could be in Japan and have a satellite store in LA.  Not unheard of.
  • Hate that this storyline is really based on the fact that Brian Austin Green couldn’t come on the show and represent David.
  • Surprised Kelly’s not talking to David herself.
  • Donna doesn’t seem too happy.
  • Brave of Silver to come to the opening.
  • But I really don’t understand how the story is ready practically overnight.
  • The flowers from David are a nice gesture.
  • Here’s Kelly’s awkward run-in with Ryan.
  • HA!  A man with a sixpack: Ryan with a sixpack of beer!
  • Why is she willing to try with him again?
  • Not right of Kel to ditch Donna.
  • Guess this is the start of Silver and Ethan’s “whatever”
  • Q5: “Two ex-girlfriends sounds a little claustrophic.”–Ethan
  • Naomi really gave it to Liam!  And then she caved!  Ugh.
  • Really don’t get why Liam goes back and forth.  This doesn’t make him likeable.
  • Silver wants to go to St. Claires.  Guess that explains the church.  How does Kelly not know about this?
  • Understanding her wanting a fresh start.  Again, Marissa-like.
  • Q6: “Think St. Claires has room for me?” “It’s an all-girls school.”  “It sounds better and better.”–Ethan and Silver
  • So there won’t be any “committment” between Ryan and Kelly.  Wonder where this is going…
  • That fish thing just got way too long of a scene.
  • Weird that Adrianna is referring to the baby as “the kid.”
  • Has Navid been wanting to raise the baby all along?
  • Q7: “The only thing that matters is that I’m in love wi th you.  I’ve loved you since I was 7.  And I love your baby, too.”–Navid
  • Q8: “I wanna be with you forever.”  “What are you saying, you want to get married?”  “Yes.”–Navid and Adrianna
  • Did they just get served burgers?  Should be MEGABURGERS!  AND WHERE THE HELL IS NAT?!
  • Can’t believe there wasn’t any follow-up with Dixon’s storyline.  I don’t like that.
  • Promo: all about the soon-to-be Naomi-Liam-Annie triangle.

Top 10 Real-Life Relationships Pt. 2

23 04 2009

Part 1

The countdown continues with, coincidentally, two relationships from the same show.

8. Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) and Christine Elise (Emily, Beverly Hills 90210)


Priestley and Elise dated and live together for several years during the 90s.  Elise’s three appearances on the show (season 2, season 4, and season 5) all occurred during the course of their relationship.  Ironically, on the show, their characters’ initial relationship ended when Emily went a little pyscho.  It later didn’t work out because of timing, and because of Brandon’s relationship with Kelly.

7. Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) and Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Valerie, Beverly Hills 90210)


This couple actually began seeing each other before Tiffani joined the show in the fall of 1993.  In addition to 90210, they also appeared together once in an episode of Saved by the Bell: The College Years and the television movie “She Fought Alone.”
