News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and 90210

23 08 2010
  • TV Guide Magazine has a few Gossip Girl spoilers.
  • Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of Nylon’s September issue.
  • Interview has an, um, interview with Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl).
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), has a new website.
  • Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) has started a humorous (parody?) Twitter account under the name @SensitiveJulian.
  • Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210) tweeted that he started a blog.
  • The Beverly Hills 90210 Season 10 DVD will be released November 2. TVShowsOnDVD.com has a look at the cover art and reports that The Final Goodbye will be included as a bonus feature. (The set itself is being marketed as The Final Season, as opposed to The Tenth Season.) While I am happy that there are special features again (it’s the first time since season 4), I wonder if its inclusion and the timing of the release means there won’t be a complete series set. They are not only missing out on the opportunity to market it for Christmas, but to have it come out on a year of double anniversaries for the show. But I suppose anything is possible own the road. And at first I was thrilled to see what I thought was an authentic cover photo – as in, it was an original group photo with all of the tenth season’s regular cast members; no one was photoshopped in or out like in the past and the photo wasn’t otherwise altered in any way- but I doubled-checked and a Google search of the original photo shows they did make some subtle, needless changes. It’s pretty amazing: ten seasons, ten DVDs and not one with appropriate and/or unedited cover art! The photo on the top left also looks suspicious but I can’t say for sure without seeing the cover first-hand. Also, it’s interesting that there’s three pictures of Tori Spelling (Donna) on the front and another on the side. I mean, are two solo pics necessary? Really? Also, love how Vincent Young (Noah) went from being left off the covers for seasons 8 and 9, but gets two pictures on this one. Sigh.

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

19 08 2010
  • The CW has pulled 18 to Life from its schedule. It will be replaced by repeats of Life Unexpected, which stars Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek).
  • ABC News has a “Where Are They Now?” piece about some of the Beverly Hills 90210 cast members. Note: it lacks accuracy and completeness. Guess they don’t have a fact-checker.
  • The TV Fanatic has an interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl). Warning: spoilers included.
  • Everly, featuring Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), has launched a blog. They also have an official YouTube page now.

  • New York magazine has a fun interview with Gallagher.
  • Zap2it has a great interview with Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.). Love that she wants to reunite, so to speak, with Tate Donovan (Jimmy, The O.C.).
  • TVOvermind has an interview with Brittany Daniel (Eve, Dawson’s Creek). I wasn’t sure if she was coming back to The Game, but she says she is.




Spoiler: Ask Ausiello

19 08 2010

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

Question: Any new One Tree Hill scoop? —Ryan
Ausiello:
The rumors are true: Life is imitating art for Bethany Joy Galeotti, who’s expecting her first child this winter. There’s also buzz that Galeotti has informed One Tree Hill producers that she will not be sticking around beyond this season, but a source close to the show tells me that’s hogwash. (Yes, he/she actually used the word hogwash.)

****

Note:

“Buzz” started with E! Online, which claimed that Galeotti “may opt not to return to the show beyond the current 12-episode order should the network want to extend the series’ run this season.” It said nothing about “beyond this season,” as Ausiello puts it. The issue is supposedly about this season. So is Ausiello purposefully not addressing the same issue but making it seem like he is or am I reading too much into this?





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

18 08 2010
  • The CW will have a fall preview at the Paley Center in Los Angeles on September 15, featuring a “premiere screening of a CW returning favorite” but it likely won’t be Gossip Girl, 90210 or One Tree Hill since they will all have premiered earlier that week.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of Interview’s September issue. The interview, conducted by her The Town co-star and director, Ben Affleck, is really great.
  • Hilary Duff (Olivia, Gossip Girl) is on the cover of OK! Magazine, giving the tab an exclusive about her recent wedding.
  • 90210 will soon air in India on the new Big CBS network. CBS Television Studios produces 90210, and the CBS Corporation owns 50 percent of The CW.
  • PopWrap has a spoiler-filled interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210). One immediate thought (and I’ll admit I’m unfairly judging without seeing the episodes and just relying on what he said): I don’t know what this show has against continuity.
  • TVGuide.com reports that Michael Trucco (Cooper, One Tree Hill) could make another appearance on V.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier (Nicki, One Tree Hill) is not on Twitter after all. A Covert Affairs associate producer has tweeted an apology for saying it is her when it is actually an impersonator. Uncool.




Random Question

18 08 2010

I’ve been very vocal about my inability to accept One Tree Hill without Lucas and Peyton.

(Though, to be fair, I have gripes with the show’s seventh season that have nothing to do their absence.)

There is now an unconfirmed (and let me stress unconfirmed) report that Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley) could possibly leave the show if the season 8 episode order is extended beyond 12 episodes.

That begs the question…

Can you accept One Tree Hill without Haley?
