Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

2 03 2010

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.
