News Roundup: 90210, Dawson’s Creek, Gossip Girl and More

19 01 2009
  • Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) is given the backhanded compliment of “looking better” in the January 26th issue of PEOPLE. She’s among two others (Nicole Richie and Amy Winehouse) who were “once blasted for appearing dangerously thin [and now] are starting the new year with fitter figures.”
  • Korbi over at Zap2it says the Annie/Ethan drama on 90210 is “killing” her.  Says Korbi: “The series seems insistent on making them the epicenter of the show and I can’t stress what a bad idea this is.”  I have to agree, only because I can’t really stand Annie.
  • Adam Kaufman (Ethan, Dawson’s Creek) stars alongside Lauren Ambrose in the CBS movie Loving Leah, which airs this Sunday.
  • The January 23rd issue of Entertainment Weekly gives a fresh take on Heath Ledger’s death, and the role his relationship with Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) played in it.
  • In that same issue, EW gives Jessica Szhor’s Vanessa (Gossip Girl) a “death wish.” The mag writes, “Face it, Gossip Girl. Your resident hipster is about as much of a renegade as Nick on Family Ties. It’s about time she was run over by a Starbucks delivery truck.”
  • The One Tree Hill fan reunion has mysteriously been canceled…You can read why here.

  • Do any of you watch Skins?  The Washington Post says it makes Gossip Girl and 90210 “look like ‘Little House on the Prairie.'”
  • What do the 90210 stars, new and old, think about football and the Superbowl?  You can find out here.
  • Ouch!  A new article calls 90210 “spineless” and Gossip Girl “shallow.”  The article names Friday Night Lights the “teen drama MVP.”  If that’s right, apparently I should be covering it…
  • Michael Steger (Navid, 90210) has managed to keep a low-profile since the series began.  He opens up a teensy bit in this new article.
  • It’s not 90210 and sure ain’t General Hospital.  Instead, Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210) is headed to Without a Trace.
  • The Boston Globe has a great article about Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek), her new movie Wendy and Lucy, and life after Heath.  You can read it here.
