5 10 2009
  • This by far the BEST One Tree Hill article I have seen in quite a while.  It’s about time someone addressed the obvious: the show outperforms many others on The CW but rarely gets any love.  Here’s hoping this changes that from now on!
  • And this is a step in the right direction!  The Futon Critic has an interview with Mark Schwahn.  He said some interesting things about Leyton, Dan and (unfortunately) Alex.
  • Starpulse has an interview with Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill).

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

  • Please check out my updated Twitter Directory.  With the help of some readers, I found a bunch of new fake accounts this weekend for the 90210 and Gossip Girl stars.  Please let me know if you find any more.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) is reportedly working on a reality show about her life, and hints that “I’ll be back on TV very soon. There will be an announcement very soon. I promise you that.”
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) says she draws inspiration for her character from her sister.
  • One Tree Hill’s “naked” scene between Skills (Antwon Taylor) and Mouth (Lee Norris) was one of TVGuide.com’s top moments of thse week.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) spoke to E!Online about recent controversy regarding her style and choice of dress.
  • I had a hard time choosing a winner for the Melrose Place contest, as all 3 entries I got had multiple cross-over ideas–and good ones, too!.  I narrowed each commenter’s ideas down to the one I liked best, and then chose from there.  The winner is g90210th, who suggested a cross-over between One Tree Hill’s Nathan and Clay with Melrose Place’s Ella.  Out of all the ideas, I thought this one was the most realistic and the least cliche, which is what I’d like to see in an actual cross-over.  Congrats g90210th!
