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).

  • Be sure to check out The CW’s site for all the new video content this week.
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (2.5 million viewers) and Gossip Girl (2.4 million viewers rounded up) increased its ratings significantly compared to last week.
  • There’s another Mark Schwahn preview for next week’s One Tree Hill.
  • There’s a YouTube video of Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) on KTLA and another video of her on The Bonnie Hunt Show.
  • There’s a new One Tree Hill Connection podcast, which features an interview with India de Beaufort (Miranda).
  • I just found out Scott Holroyd (David, One Tree Hill) is married to Allison Munn (Lauren, One Tree Hill). Damn.  I should’ve asked her about that in our interview!  You can follow him on Twitter via @scottholroyd.
  • Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) confirmed to MTV that Lady Gaga will appear on an upcoming episode.
  • MTV also has details on Badgley attending the premiere for The Stepfather, his new film. He’s also the subject of this week’s edition of their column Star Gazing.
  • PEOPLE.com has a short piece on Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) and her love for designer shoes.
  • EW.com spoke with Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) about her new song, Somebody to Love. Meester says she can’t find love–which is an interesting thing to say if you’re dating Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl). Unless they aren’t anymore?  She made a similar comment on the radio this morning with Ryan Seacrest.
  • Make sure you enter my Soundtrack 90210 contest!
  • The Los Angeles Times has a story on the release of the soundtrack.
  • TVGuide.com has a story on AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) and her involvement with Blind Project, an organization that tries to help victims of human trafficking.  I actually remember talking to AnnaLynne about this last year.  She’s very passionate about a number of issues.
  • Complex.com has the first piece I’ve seen on Mekia Cox (Sasha, 90210).  I never made the connection before that she was on One Tree Hill!  Now I totally remember the episode: the season 3 ep Brave New World as Faith, Lucas’ old friend.
