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

11 08 2010
  • Edwin Hodge has been cast on One Tree Hill. Spoilers involved, so consider this your fair warning.
  • The One Tree Hill Connection podcast has a brief interview with Steve Goldfried (co-producer, One Tree Hill) about the sticker contest.
  • PopWrap has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill).
  • PopStar has an interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210).
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) directed a music video for a song she wrote and sings called “Myself And I.” Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210) stars in the video, which oddly isn’t mentioned in the article, and also worked on the song.
  • PEOPLE.com has suggested Ian Ziering (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210), among others, to play Steven Slater if a movie is made about the Jet Blue pilot who made a dramatic plane exit earlier this week.
  • We Love Soaps has an interview with Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Blair (Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl) and Chuck (Ed Westwick, Gossip Girl) may be the subject of this Kristin marriage spoiler. (Yes, One Tree Hill’s Brulian is also pictured, but they don’t fit the criteria since they are already engaged.)
  • Parade.com has a great interview with Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl), where she confirms what I’ve said all along: she is not on Twitter!
  • Szohr is unfairly getting heat for supposedly blowing off a Lollapalooza event while on an all-expenses paid trip. Gossip Cop and I obtained the trip invitation that proves her innocence.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) may star in the film Gravity.
  • Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.), Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and their company Fake Empire may be involved in the film adaptation of Au Voir, Crazy European Chick.

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

2 06 2010
  • You can vote for Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill 0r 90210 in Kristin’s best/worst finales poll.
  • Korbi debated whether the season 6 or season 7 finale of One Tree Hill was better. I think you all know my vote.
  • Movieline claims they know what plot twist was cut from 90210’s season finale…and it’s what several have guessed.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted that he booked a movie that films in October and November…which means he’ll  have to work out the schedule with 90210, especially since he’s been upgraded to series regular.
  • Both new issues of In Touch and Us Weekly have nice group pictures of some of the Beverly Hills 90210 stars at Ian Ziering’s (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210) wedding. There might be some in the other tabloids, too, but I haven’t combed through those yet.
  • Mari-Kari, featuring the voice of Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210), premieres tomorrow on FEARnet.com. Zap2it has some exclusive details on the making of it while TVGuide.com has an interview with Doherty.
  • Rangers player C.J. Wilson did a fun interview with SI.com, where he talks about being a fan of The O.C.
  • A fan asked Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) on Twitter why she wasn’t in the Dawson’s Creek series finale–something I’ve always wondered–and she gave an interesting but kind of cryptic response.
  • Jane Lynch (Mrs. Witter, Dawson’s Creek) got married on Memorial Day.




News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and 90210

31 05 2010
  • Mediaweek has an interesting article evaluating the broadcast networks, based on their past performance and fall schedules. They had pretty much all positive things to say about The CW, though none of our teen dramas were specifically mentioned.
  • OnTheRecord.com has a spoilish interview with Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) but it doesn’t seem to contain anything we don’t already know.
  • FanBolt has an interview with Tyler Hilton (Chris, One Tree Hill). There’s a decent amount of OTH talk.
  • Ian Ziering (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210) got married over the weekend, and the wedding was attended by several co-stars, including Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210), Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) and Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210).




News Roundup: Gossip Girl, The O.C., 90210 and One Tree Hill

19 04 2010
  • The Brown Daily Herald has an interesting article on the school’s portrayal in entertainment media, including how it was depicted on Gossip Girl and The O.C.
  • Zap2it has photos of Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) in her New Look campaign.
  • You can bid on a tour of the Gossip Girl set with Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl) in support of Shakespeare on the Common.
  • TVGuideMagazine.com has an interesting “exclusive” about Rob Estes (Harry, 90210) leaving the show. Here’s what’s new: quotes from Lori Loughlin (Debbie) and Shenae Grimes (Annie), and the suggestion that the finale is the last episode with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210).  Loughlin and Grimes don’t seem too happy (though not entirely unhappy, either) and I was under the impression that Garth’s last episode had already aired. Here’s what’s not new: Debbie and Harry are having marriage problems and that will somehow play into Harry’s exit. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.
  • showbizzle, the digital company run by Charles Rosin (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210), has relaunched its website. There’s a pretty nifty video explaining what showbizzle is (if you haven’t read my interview with Rosin about it–or even if you have!) and you can see a little of Ian Ziering (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • General Hospital’s headwriter told Soap Opera Digest he is in talks with Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210), something we also heard a few months ago.
  • The New York Post has an article on stars getting acting experience through soap operas and it features a few quotes from Marcil.
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast features an interview with Tym Bucheran (make-up artist, One Tree Hill).
