19 02 2010
  • I have confirmed that Antwon Tanner (Skills, One Tree Hill) will appear in at least one episode of OTH later this season, despite being sentenced last month to three months in prison. As I reported then, Tanner hadn’t been fired from the show and he has until the end of April to begin serving his sentence, so this news makes perfect sense.

Spoiler: Watch with Kristin

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

Simon in Agoura Hills, Calif.: Any scoop on Southland?
(Not relevant until…) Southland definitely has more authentic L.A. than 90210, a lack of veracity that the new 90210 boss is now righteously trying to rectify. More on that coming in 90210 vids tomorrow.

Frannie in Orlando, Fla.: Does Dan ever get another heart on One Tree Hill?
Dan’s heart storyline is not resolved by the end of the season, so it looks like the bastard lives to fight another season! Can Dan even really be killed? He seems like one of those supersoldiers you can just shoot holes through and they keep getting up.

Catherine: What happened to the Blair/Jack Bass secret on Gossip Girl?
Blair did hook up with Jack Bass on New Year’s Eve, but when that info comes out, it barely makes a dent in the storyline. (Who else was hoping for a least a jealous freak-out from Chuck?)

Tina in British Columbia: Sooo excited about Gwen Stefani appearing on Gossip Girl!can you tell us anything more?
According to MTV.com, No Doubt will be appearing in the Lily episode as a band named—wait for it—Snowed Out. (Heee.) They’ll be doing a cover of Adam & the Ants‘ “Stand and Deliver.”

Gio: Your help is sought in finding missing person Jenny Humphrey, cute Brooklyn blonde. Not seen on Gossip Girl for weeks now. Will she be getting a storyline any time soon?
Negatory. Little J is overlooked once again. In the coming weeks every other storyline on the show takes precedence, except when J finally pops up in the finale—she has a key role to play in the coronation of the new queen mean girl. In the meantime, however, we always have your Taylor Momsen needs covered in Fashion Police.

Peggy in Santa Barbara, Calif.: Are any of the cast of 90210 heading for Melrose Place?
No one has been officially confirmed, but Rob Estes tells us, “My money’s on Ryan—he’d be a perfect crossover.” Who do you think should make the leap over to 90210‘s sister show?

Melanie in Del Mar, Calif.: What’s the deal with Dixon’s biomom coming on 90210?
Dixon’s (Tristan Wilds) biological mom does come back in the picture, which causes quiet the emotional meltdown with the family. And though the promos tease a big reunion, don’t expect it to be as special as they’re selling. Rob Estes tells us, “We may see [Dixons mom], but do we meet her? She shows up and then disappears for a while. They actually go after her…They go looking for her.”

Mitch in San Diego: I knew Dustin Milligan was leaving 90210, but now Silver? What’s going on?
Silver is leaving West Bev High, but Jessica Stroup is not leaving the show. That is, if her character doesn’t die in the season finale.

Dyan in Queens, N.Y.: More Matt Lanter on 90210 please!
Liam’s causing some drama and really turning into the Dylan McKay we’ve been waiting for. Matt Lanter says, “Liam takes out Ethan to a camping trip. Ethan’s trying to find himself and Liam encourages that from people, trying to find what’s deep inside. He gets Ethan into some trouble. Liam’s presence is being felt in a pretty major way.” That’s not the only 90210er he’s messing with. His new romance with Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) is headed for a rough patch. “By the end of the season, there’s going to be some major drama with [Naomi] and her sister and possibly Annie. There’s some problem with her sister. She comes in and she definitely makes things tough in 90210. People are definitely going to be angry and betrayed,” adds Matt.

****

Compelled to respond to some things in this edition.

1. Jenny HAS been seen on recent GG episodes, just not in the leading story capacity we saw earlier this season.

2. Pretty sure it IS confirmed that Ryan Eggold will be on Melrose Place.

3. Dylan wasn’t a trouble-maker, so I don’t see how Liam causing drama makes them comparable.
