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

What’s the buzz on ‘90210’s return? – SDion
I’ve seen the next few episodes kicking off March 9, and it’s BAU for the West Bev crowd. Dixon and Silver are stymied by miscommunication, Naomi pulls a Claire Dunphy (think trenchcoat) but with slightly less disastrous results, Rumer Willis’ character is on the receiving end of an unexpected kiss, and poor Annie is mired in a sorrowful dilemma. Meanwhile, I can see why Jennie Garth is on her way out – a Lonely Heart Kelly Taylor is frankly hard to swallow.

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

Can you tell us more about Adrianna’s same-sex flirtation on 90210? — Jon
MICKEY: Well, flirtation is a good word for it, Jon, because while Jessica Lowndes’ scenes with Rumer Willis are actually quite good, Ade’s friendship with Gia is less about long-term romance and more about spring-boarding Ade into a new story line, in which she joins an all-girl band. Only problem: Navid’s new girlfriend is also in the band.

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

Jackie in San Antonio, Texas: So what’s the news about One Tree Hill?
Stephen Colletti
is back! He told us at the Lucky for Lupus event, “I’m actually working on One Tree Hill right now. I just got done shooting an episode today, in fact. And we’re getting up to the finale, which takes place in Park City. We shoot that next week, and there are some changes in relationships and changes in peoples’ lives. We’re going to blow it up. It’s going to be awesome.”

Melody in North Hollywood, Calif.: What’s the latest with Serena’s dad on Gossip Girl?
I just talked to Stephanie Savage and will bring you couples scoop in a jiffy! In the meantime, “When you think about the Humphreys and Van Der Woodsens and that extended family that they have, [Serena’s father] coming back really lands on everybody in a great way. It definitely causes drama for Serena and Eric and the other kids, and there’s an adult component with Rufus and Lily, because there’s some backstory there.” And according to Matthew Settle, Billy Baldwin as Papa van der Woodsen is a great addition to Gossip Girl. Settle told us at the G-Star Raw event in New York City: “It’s a great love triangle. Billy’s got a great energy; he’s a good actor. It’s believable that he would be Serena’s father, and he’s a great fit for the show. It’s really good casting.”

Gregory in Minneapolis, Minn.: Will Rufus and Lily’s son Scott be around when Gossip Girl returns?
We’ve seen the last of Scott for now, Stephanie said. “[He’s] done for this season, but he can absolutely come back next season.”

Diana in Memphis, Tenn.: I’m so ready for 90210 goodness. What’s coming up the next couple of months?
For AnnaLynne McCord, it’s going to be a lot of 90210 badness! We chatted the actress up at the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation event and she told us, “The finale is always brutal for Naomi. It’s always the worst thing in the world. She has it horrible! The last thing of the finale is Naomi’s face, and it’s really bad. What happens to her is awful. So I kinda feel like there will be some downward spiral in a way for Naomi’s character, but she’s good at covering, so she’ll still have that façade. But you’re really gonna feel bad for her at the end of this episode.”

Perry in Milwaukee, Wis.: Naomi and Liam are my favorite 90210 couple. Any scoop on them together?
Yes! AnnaLynne told us there’s a lot of Naomi-Liam goodness to come on 90210. She said, “Matt Lanter and I have so much fun together. We love working together. There are some hysterical moments that I don’t recommend 16-year-olds doing at home, one of which where Naomi shows up with a trench coat and, well, nothing else…’cause that’s smart.” Does that work out for her? “It works out! Oh, it works out quite well.”

Pam in Kentwood, La.: I can’t wait for 90210 to finally return, and I’m really interested in the Rumer Willis-Jessica Lowndes storyline. What can we expect?
When it comes to the budding Gia-Adrianna romance, you can expect tons of good things. Rumer and Jessica actually have loads of chemistry, and while their attraction to each other seems to develop a little quickly, this is one 90210 storyline we’re fully onboard with. Adrianna and Gia bond over mutual sobriety, then music and movies and ice cream, and pretty soon, they’re in young love. Before the two move ahead, Ade will question her sexuality and turn to her besties for help. The consensus? She’s not gay, just has a connection with Gia.

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

Wally in Orlando: Do you know anything about what Glee will be up to in April?
Glee is going all One Tree Hill! Don’t worry, Chad Michael Murray won’t guest star, but Finn will be playing basketball instead of football when the show returns April 13, because…football season is over, dummies! “It’s basketball now. Finn Hudson is the captain o the basketball team.” Also, we would bet some seriously good money that Adam Lambert will indeed guest star on the show, because a source who tells us everything about everything clammed up with a “no comment” when asked about the rumor that it is really happening. Quick, Chris Colfer, grab a keyboard!

K.J. in the Caribbean: When will The Secret Life of the American Teenager be back?
Jan. 4, and according to Shailene Woodley, “There might be another pregnancy, [and] a couple of weddings, hookups, breakups, all that drama.” Look for Shailene’s storylines to split between her relationship with the baby and her relationship with Ricky. Plus, Francia Raisa tells us, “There are a lot of new hookups, especially with me. I’m gonna tease you guys a lot this season. My character’s grown a lot in the season that’s coming up, and then she has a huge storyline coming up toward the end of the season. It’s really good, so dramatic, really juicy.” Any guesses about Adrian’s big twist?

Meagan in New Jersey: The spoiler chat needs more One Tree Hill. Have anything juicy to share?
I’m hearing from a source that Taylor James, Hailey and Quinn’s bad seed sister from season two, will be back! Lindsey McKeon is reprising her role as Taylor—and she’s not coming back empty handed. She might just have another James family member by her side, and wait a sec, who’s that man on her arm? Hint: You’ve definitely seen him before. Word is, Taylor will be back somewhere around episode 14.

Noelle in Normal, Ill.: Gossip Girl Insider says that a new episode will be on Jan. 4. They are liars, right?
Perhaps misinformed? We’re told that after tonight’s episode, the next new one will be Monday, March 8, per the show’s CW rep. In other more exciting Gossip Girl news, I’m told Serena’s father will come back sometime toward the end of the season. And sadly, for all you who write in week after week asking if there will be some hot and steamy Chuck and Blair sex scenes coming up, I’m still not hearing of anything scantily clad or scandalous. Now you know what to ask for from Santa!

Randall in Atlanta: 90210, please! Who is going to commit suicide?!
I can’t say who, but I can tell you that he—yes, he—is not leaving the show. So it is just a suicide attempt. In other news, the Adriana and Gia ladylove storyline starts when 90210 returns from hiatus, and Navid will wonder if he made Adrianna gay. (Apparently he isn’t aware how such things work!) I’m told that Silver and Teddy develop a full-fledged relationship, but of course, they will have their complications…

Nell in Watsonville, Calif.: Any scoop on 90210? I’m addicted!
We’ll be meeting Liam’s slickster ex-con father in an upcoming episode. (Ex Duke of Hazzard John Schneider plays Liam’s stepfather, in case you were confused.) Got any dream casting for the part?

Notes:

Shailene Woodley played the original Kaitlin on The O.C.

Both Haley and Adrianna are spelled incorrectly.

We already know Taylor is coming back, based on the preview we saw last night, and it’s presumably in the January 18th episode which is number 13.

The statement that whoever attempts suicide on 90210 is not leaving the show contradicts the Mega Buzz spoiler that says said person–or at least a related person–is leaving the show.





News Roundup: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, 90210 and Dawson’s Creek

7 12 2009
  • When compared to their respective previous episodes, last week’s One Tree Hill (2.4 million viewers rounded up) dropped a decent amount in the ratings while Gossip Girl (2.2 million viewers) stayed the same. 90210 (2.1 million viewers) also had the same ratings.
  • As The CW brags about its ratings, The Hollywood Reporter points out its failure.
  • The Yale Daily News has a surprisingly accurate take (IMO, anyway) on the state of the teen drama genre.
  • OK! Magazine has an interview with Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill). Coincidentally, the writer and I were once sent to cover the same event.
  • Star News Online has quite possibly the best feature story I’ve ever read on Paul Johansson (Dan, One Tree Hill; John, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Candy Spelling has confirmed that she and daughter Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) have reconciled.
  • Gossip Cop says rumors that Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210) is using co-star Rumer Willis (Gia, 90210) to get to stepdad Ashton Kutcher are false.
  • Power of Youth, which just honored Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) with one of their awards, is auctioning off a lunch date with him. The Miami Herald has a short interview with him.
  • This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX is a porn spoof of the show. The trailer is actually pretty funny. (No nudity shown.)
  • TVGuide.com and TheDailyNewsOnline.com both have interviews with James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek).




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

3 11 2009
  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (2.3 million viewers) and Gossip Girl (2.0 million viewers rounded up) each had a decent drop in the ratings compared to last week.  Gossip Girl technically didn’t even cross 2 million (again, I rounded up), tying for a season-low.
  • I will be interviewing Lee Norris (Mouth, One Tree Hill) later this week.  Since I’ve already interviewed him, I figured this time I would use reader questions.  Please comment with your question by Thursday Friday morning.  I cannot promise it will be asked but I’ll do my best!
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast features an interview with OTH writer Terrence Coli.
  • I love this video interview with Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill), where she adamantly states she isn’t on Twitter.  As you’ve seen in my Twitter Directory, there are tons of fake Sophias out there.  Frustrating!
  • Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) recorded a message on SoGoPro.
  • If you haven’t seen Brett Claywell (Tim, One Tree Hill) on One Life to Live, Perez Hilton actually posted a clip.
  • In a Gossip Girl recap by the L.A. Times, both Andrea (Gabrielle Carteris, Beverly Hills 90210) and Joey (Katie Holmes, Dawson’s Creek) are compared to Vanessa (Jessica Szhor, Gossip Girl).
  • If you missed the short clip of the video for “Somebody to Love” by Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl), which aired during GG last night, E! Online posted it.
  • The Parents Television Council has sent a letter urging CW affiliates not to air next week’s episode, which will feature the reported threesome.  Seems a little preemptive (no pun intended) to me.  I can’t imagine the episode being vulgar enough to warrant this.  I imagine, like the gay kiss, it will be such a nothing thing and is really more about getting publicity and media attention (in which case, it worked).  But I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
  • You can get 10% off the cost of tickets for the Gossip Girl tour in New York City when you use the promo code TEENDRAMA.
  • TV Guide Magazine has a spoiler-filled interview with Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) about what happens with the Jackie (Ann Gillespie) storyline.  We all know how I feel about this so I figured I’d spare you guys the rant.
  • Ausiello has a lot more spoiler-filled details on the Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes, 90210) / Gia (Rumer Willis, 90210) storyline.
  • Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) and Nikki Reed (Sadie, The O.C.) are also featured in the Nov. issue of Nylon.
  • The O.C. made BlackBook’s list of Top 10 Single-Letter & Acronymical TV Shows.
  • Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) will star alongside Holmes in The Romantics.  Holmes will also produce.
  • The A.V. Club has a great interview with Chris Pratt (Che, The O.C.)




News Roundup: 90210, The O.C., Gossip Girl and Dawson’s Creek

29 10 2009
  • This is an interesting article on the future of The CW and what it means for television.
  • Ausiello has a pretty big spoiler about Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes, 90210) and Gia (Rumer Willis, 90210).
  • MTV has an article on the above, which rightly points out a comparison to The O.C.
  • Well, Greg Vaughan (Cliff, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted more info and he WON’T be playing Cliff when he appears on 90210. Just another instance of this new show killing the original.  Ugh.
  • Soap Opera Source has a few details on the role Vaughan WILL play.
  • Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina, Gossip Girl) spoke with MTV about playing her GG character versus her role on Mercy.
  • A gossip columnist says Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) and Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) will announce an engagement soon, and the estranged husband of Kelly Rutherford (Lily, Gossip Girl) is planning a tell-all book on her and the show.
  • Leona Lewis says she chose not to kiss Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) in her music video.
  • A few little Dawson’s Creek references in this Los Angeles Times interview with Kevin Williamson (creator, Dawson’s Creek).
  • Television Without Pity has an article comparing Dawson’s Creek and The Vampire Diaries (which Williamson also created).




Reader Submission

10 10 2009

SaneN85 submitted the following:

While commenting on the news of Greg Vaughn being let go from GH, I made a comment about the connection between him, BAG, and Jonathon Jackson. This had me thinking about the many connections that you can find to the main teen dramas. I’d think it be fun to have like a weekly post naming one celebrity and challenging the readers to find how they connect to the shows, some actors would have multiple connections. For instance, let’s say Angelina Jolie…..

Angeline Jolie starred in Gia with Elizabeth Mitchell, who starred on Lost with Matthew Fox. Matthew Fox starred on Party of Five with Neve Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Neve Campbell starred in Scream with Rose McGowan, Jennifer Love Hewitt starred in I Know What You Did Last Summer with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Rose McGowan replaced Shannon Doherty on Charmed, and Sarah Michelle Gellar starred on Buffy with Michelle Trachtenberg (Gossip Girl). This doesn’t even mention that Rose McGowan starred in Jawbreaker with Rebecca Gayheart (who played Dylan’s wife on 90210). There are at least 2 more ways I can connect Angelina to our favorite dramas. I work at Blockbuster part-time and have an overwhelmingly silly amount of knowledge regarding actor’s careers. I just thought this would be like a fun weekly quiz.

I think Sane’s idea is great and we’ll start doing it under the name Six Degrees of Teen Dramas.  Starting today, each Saturday I’ll post a new person.  From there, it’s your job to connect that person to at least one of the teen dramas.  Here’s the first one:

Will Smith

Ready, set, go!





Ten Most Memorable Guest-Stars and Cameos

7 10 2009

During what’s known as “sweeps period,” TV shows usually pull out all the stops–storylines come to a head, shocking things are revealed and famous actors drop by for cameos.

What struck me as interesting recently is that The CW isn’t restricting itself to those time periods.

With Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff appearing on Gossip Girl this week, and Rumer Willis’ recurring role on 90210, I started thinking about stunt casting on our other shows.

For the next few days, I’ll count down the ten most memorable guest-stars and cameos from all of the teen dramas.

To kick things off, here are the 3 mentioned above.  I’m not including them because they are the most recent but because I really do believe they deserve a spot on the this most memorable list.

10.  Hilary Duff

Show: Gossip Girl

Episode: Begins with 3.04: Dan de Fleurette

Role: Olivia Burke

Status: Recurring

9. Rumer Willis

Show: 90210

Episode: Begins with 2.02: To Sext or Not To Sext

Role: Gia

Status: Recurring

8. Tyra Banks

Show: Gossip Girl

Episode: 3.04: Dan de Fleurette

Role: Ursula

Status: Guest-Star

Come back tomorrow for part 2 of my countdown!
