Question: 90210 has turned a corner. I’m hooked. Scoop, please. –Tiffany
It’s so bad it’s awesome, right? Here’s a little big scooplet: Liam will sleep with someone in the finale… and it’s not Naomi! (Or *****!)

Question: Any chance Dustin Milligan will return to 90210 to wrap up his story next season? –Ian
No. He will not be back.

Question: I read somewhere that the season finale of Gossip Girl includes Serena uncovering the identity of GG. Will she be successful? –Mike
She uncovers the identity of someone connected to GG, but not GG herself.

Question: I need Gossip Girl scoop, preferably about the prom. –Lindsay
Revenge-seeking Chuck, furious at Blair for attending the big ball with Nate, hatches a plan to make Nelly Yuki prom queen. Meanwhile, Dan and Serena end up going together, but as friends, not lovers.

Top 10 Real-Life Relationships

22 04 2009

Over the next few days, I’ll be showcasing the real-life relationships, past and present, of our favorite teen drama actors.

We’ll start with the relatively small couples and increase each day in seriousness and impact.

10. Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) and Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl)


The couple began dating not long after Gossip Girl began and are still together.

9. Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and Vincent Young (Noah, Beverly Hills 90210)


I actually had no idea these two had a relationship until I read it in Spelling’s book, sTORI Telling.  In it she writes that they dated for three years and said “Vince was a classic bad boy.”  Their relationship was far from perfect and when Young proposed to her (after the series ended), Spelling said no because she “had to find a diferent type of guy.”  Their 90210 characters dated on-and-off during seasons 8 through 10.

Spoiler: Mega Buzz

Now that Donna has appeared on 90210, is it possible that there will be a reunion with Brenda as well? — Jeff
Funny you should ask, Jeff. So far the answer is no. But when I asked Tori Spelling the same question this week, she said, “I know the fans would love it,” and not much more. As it stands, Tuesday was Spelling’s last episode this season. Shannen Doherty appears in the May 19 finale. A paranoid person might think their near-miss was intentional. I am a paranoid person.

Monday Night Reaction

GOSSIP GIRL (Seder Anything)

  • Woah!  The ‘previously on GG’ scenes include one from a super-early season 1 episode.  Random?  Probably not.
  • Love seeing the ending from the last ep again with Blair and Nate.
  • I don’t like when Blair has these dreams.  They’re pretty stupid.
  • But who knew Leighton could do accents?!
  • Yay! Cyrus is back!
  • Ummm…Passover ended almost a week ago.  Sucks that The CW scheduling screwed up the timing.
  • Q1: “Being a socialite was good enough for Jackie O.”–Blair
  • Boho Barista = Vanessa
  • Q2: “I am a 17-year-old billionaire with tremendous stamina.”–Chuck
  • Did Serena really even go to Spain?  Something fishy’s going on…
  • Plot twist!  Nate got in to Columbia!
  • Being on some socialite committee is NOT a life plan.
  • Who is this Wes kid?
  • Q3: “Apparently a tree does not grow in Brooklyn.”–Dan (Did younger viewers get the reference??)
  • Q4: “There’s gotta be a job on Craigslist that doesn’t involve dealing or nudity.”–Dan
  • Blair is resisting Vanderbilt’s hints.
  • Whoops, not anymore!  Figures he would bribe her.  Figures she would take it!
  • No Dorota this episode?  Sad!
  • Aaron conveniently missing from his father’s Passover seder.  Not even a mention!
  • Interesting that Serena called Cyrus.
  • Understand why Lily is “furious” with her.
  • Q5: “It seems the old Serena is back and I’m not very happy to see her.”–Lily
  • Q6: “I’m one of the chosen ones!”–Blair
  • I knew Dan would end up working the Waldorf dinner.
  • Like the Passover talk.  Let it be known, though, that The O.C. tackled Judaism first.  (Actually, you can argue that Beverly Hills 90210 did but that’s for another time.)
  • Does Nate know Blair was bribed?  He looks pissed about something.
  • I thought overseas marriages weren’t legal in the U.S. without filing a marriage license here.  So what’s the problem?
  • Also let it be know that The O.C. did the overseas marriage first with Taylor.
  • Q7: “How does one not know one is married?”–Dan
  • Ugh!  The promo was so misleading!  It spliced together dialogue to look like Dan was saying he was jealous of Serena getting  married.  In actuality, he was just insulted!  Big difference!
  • Figures Lily was invited to the seder.  Or she invited herself?  Why would she do that?  Did she know the art dealer would be there?
  • Oh, kosher wine.  We have a close relationship.
  • Interesting that Jenny went to Lily’s with Wes as if it were her house, too.
  • LOL Chuck and the girl interrupting Monopoly
  • Q8: “Dan, we need matzo!”–Eleanor
  • Woah!  Vanderbilt was responsible for Nate’s father going down!  Didn’t expect that!
  • How did Gabriel know where Serena was?  Chuck!  Why am I not surprised?
  • Q9: “Dan was my first love.  Nothing can change that.”–Serena (sort of lying to Gabriel)
  • Awkward using Dan to cover for her.  And not really fair, either.
  • Q10: “I will always love her.”–Dan (sort of lying to Gabriel)
  • Q11: “There’s even an empty seat.  It’s for Elijah but you can take it.”–Eleanor
  • Flo Rida “Right Round” song seems really random and un-GG-like.
  • Love how awkward the dinner was.
  • Why is Chuck bothered that he already slept with this girl before?  Surprised that he cares.
  • Woah!  Jenny and Chuck are having it out!  This came out of nowehere.  Really surprised Jenny brought it up.
  • Interesting explanation from Vanderbilt.  Not sure if I believe him.
  • Really awkward to sit there and hold hands with your ex.
  • Understand why Nate’s upset.  And I’m not sure if Blair’s more upset that her plan didn’t work or that she’s losing Nate.
  • Serena seems to forget that she’s only in high school.
  • Not surprising she got in to Brown considering she got in to Yale.
  • Q12: “Sometimes messes can be fun.”–Lily
  • Figures the marriage was just a misunderstanding.  Always is in GG land.
  • She’s kind of betraying Poppy, though, right?
  • Interesting Nate went to Chuck to talk about Blair.  Must be difficult for C.
  • So Rufus will sell the gallery and do what for income?  Kind of an irresponsible move when he can barely pay now for Dan’s tuition.
  • Q13: “I always pictured you as the next Hillary.”  “Except I’d win.”–Serena and Blair
  • Is Blair genuinely upset about Nate?
  • Why didn’t Nate say goodbye to Chuck?  Not nice.
  • Very nice and out-of-character for Chuck to apologize.  He seems so sad and lost.
  • Nice of Blair to apologize to Cyrus.  They have a very cute relationship.
  • Q14: “Can you forgive me?”  “That’s why God invented Yom Kippur!”–Blair and Cyrus
  • Blair stops Nate before he can speak.  What was he going to say?!
  • Really doubt that Gabriel came back just for Serena.
  • Ooh, Poppy does know!  Is this a set-up?
  • No Vanessa this episode.  Don’t mind that at all!
  • Promo: Poppy-Gabriel-Serena triangle, Chuck ends up with Blair, and Georgina is back!

ONE TREE HILL (I Would For You)

  • Preview thingie suggests we’re getting back to Nathan’s basketball storyline.
  • Really don’t want more Mouth and Millicent.
  • Ugh, Victoria!
  • Q1: “Oh, my eyes!”–Brooke about seeing Victoria
  • Brooke has a cute bedroom.
  • Q2: “She frightens me.”–Sam about Victoria
  • Nate’s coach is pretty cute.
  • What kind of name is Nino?
  • Not surprised Jamie’s a smartie.
  • Nice to see Lucas and Skills back on the River Court.
  • Lucas already knew about Skill’s breakup from the last episode.  Continuity error!
  • Cute that Mouth got Broadway tickets.  Let them stay in New York!
  • Is this the dreaded car scene?
  • Is Peyton looking at the mother and daughter and seeing her and her mom or her and her future child?
  • Guess it’s better that the accident was at the beginning of the episode rather than a cliffhanger.
  • Really thought it was going to be different–as if Peyton was seeing if she could survive how her mother died.
  • Peyton has placenta previa.  Never heard of it.
  • Q3: “We could lose her, Brooke.”–Lucas about Peyton
  • Not sure I see the point of Nathan and Nino playing 1-on-1.  Doesn’t seem the best way to “teach” him.
  • Woah!  Sam and Jack are kind of sharing a bed!
  • Q4: “I’m telling you that woman was like a zombie, a vampire and Principal Rumkus all rolled into one.”–Sam about Victoria
  • Cute and funny that they’re calling kissing gross.
  • That Burger King guy IS scary!
  • Aw, they’re holding hands now!
  • Smart of Sam to lock her out.  Figures she has a key.  So sneaky that one!
  • Nice to see Brooke upset for/about Peyton.
  • Q5: “How are we gonna get through this?”  “I dunno.  We just will.”  “You’re damn right we will.”–Brooke and Peyton
  • Was Peyton kept overnight?  Is it the next night?
  • I know I always can take a nap!
  • So many flowers!  Sent from whom?  Or just from Lucas?
  • Ack!  I forgot the car would be totaled!
  • Q6: “It’s worth more than you know.”–Lucas about The Comet
  • This private school looks so sterile and stuffy!  And Jamie looks so uncomfy.
  • Gotta admit it probably had to take a lot for Victoria to ask Brooke to come to the company.
  • True–they both did say and do things that were wrong.  But I understand why Brooke won’t help her.
  • Also, companies don’t go broke that quickly.
  • Not surprised Victoria is appealing to Brooke’s heart.
  • Jamie is cute trying his comedy routine.
  • Recess books!  WTF?!
  • And mathketball! And “mathholes”!
  • Why does Haley actually like this??
  • Was Peyton order to take it easy or be on bedrest?  There’s a big difference.
  • How’d Peyton get The Comet in the first place?
  • Really cute that Jamie talks about Skills to his teacher.
  • Q7: “You and Lucas always beat the odds.”–Haley to Peyton
  • Interesting that Sam is sad Jack is leaving when she willing to leave him in the last episode.  And Charlotte is a lot closer to Tree Hill than LA is!
  • I do like that Sam is still upset about Julian leaving.
  • Q8: “I know to follow my heart instead of locking it away.”–Sam to Brooke
  • Is Sam really Brooke’s excuse?  Though I do like how motherly she’s become.
  • Q9: “Just admit that Julian loved you and you were too scared or too stupid to love him back.”–Sam
  • Really really love seeing Skills with Jamie and the kids.
  • Interesting that Nate relates Jamie schooling to Dan.
  • Um…Coachella is over already.  Another problem with The CW scheduling!
  • Why would Sam open up to Victoria?
  • Victoria is kind of lying–or rewriting history.  She barely stuck around–she always left Brooke along!
  • Q10: “Hi Sawyer B E.”  “Hi Davis B P.”–Brooke and Peyton
  • Did they just say ‘Vicwhoria?’  Did I hear that right?
  • Looks like Jack’s getting some cool foster parents.
  • Not surprised Sam is kind of jealous.
  • Girlfriend exchange was cute!  And they kissed!
  • So random of Haley to use Jamie and Chuck as an example!
  • Surprised Brooke only asked for 51 percent of the company.  She should’ve done 60-40.
  • LOL Jamie giving his teacher followers on behalf of Skills.  He IS a genius!
  • Mouth and Millicent’s computer thing is kind of creepy.
  • Really cute that Haley and Mia came over with music equipment.
  • Woah!  Totally thought it was going to be Brooke comforting Sam!  But Victoria!
  • Will Victoria use Sam like a pawn?
  • No follow-up on the Haley teaching storyline.
  • Promo: Brooke and Victoria battle of Sam; cute Jamie and Skills stuff; Nick Lachey’s first appearance

Spoiler: Watch with Kristin

21 04 2009

Shandell in Houston: Any news on Michelle Trachtenberg’s new pilot?
While Michelle’s been out promoting her flick, 17 Again, she gave E! News the goods on her new show: “I wrapped Gossip Girl, and I signed on to a new NBC pilot called Mercy, a one-hour medical drama about the lives of three nurses. It’s very sexy, and by sexy I mean I learn how to do a catheter—and I can a rock a bedpan in case you ever need it.” We definitely want the best for our girl Michelle, but hopefully Georgina Sparks is not gone for good!

Vicki in Las Vegas: Gossip Girl!
Serena did not really get married, this is a bit of an off week for Blair (she’s in a funk because of her love problemos) and Chuck apologizes to Jenny for that time he tried to get up on her in the pilot (back when Gossip Girl still showed depraved indifference to everything, before it turned into a modern comedy-of-manners masterpiece), but let’s talk about the most important thing: Dorota-sodes are coming! So jealous of Verizon phone owners right now!

Petra in Austin, Texas: What’s the buzz on the Gossip Girl spinoff pilot?
Apparently “Lily” [sic] is not a full pilot. Rather, the ’80s flashbacks are half of a Gossip Girl episode (tied into Serena’s storyline), so it’s hard to judge the series as a whole, but from what insiders have seen so far, it looks good, and Krysten Ritter and Brittany Snow in particular are supposed to be awesome. Yay!

Marie in Terre Haute, Ind.: What’s going on with Peyton on One Tree Hill?
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby boy in the baby carriage, then comes…oops, can’t tell you that part. Mwa-ha-ha-ha. Yes, we’re evil.

Site of the Week

20 04 2009

Occasionally I reference or link to SoapNet, so I wanted to explain their Web site more.

SoapNet.com has a wider reach than the channel.  While the site covers the soaps (daytime and teen dramas) that air on the channel, it also includes entertainment and fashion news.  It also has links for a number shows on sister networks such as Lost (ABC) and The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABCFamily).

The pages for each show include relevant new stories, picture galleries and message boards.

The site has a ton of other nooks and crannies filled with good stuff so take some time out and go explore!
