News Roundup: 90210, Gossip Girl, and More

13 04 2009
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) has refuted some of her mother’s claims in a new article.  Both of their books are reviewed in the April 17th issue of Entertainment Weekly.  You can also read the reviews here, as well as another Tori article from the mag.
  • Newsday put together a lot of Tori-related content, including a photo gallery and an article previewing her return to 90210.
  • Newsday also has a poll asking what other original cast member you’d like to see return and a photo gallery of the new and old casts.
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) will soon have a second child.
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) and Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210) both said they were disappointed to hear Dustin Milligan (Ethan) won’t be returning for season 2.
  • Rob Estes (Harry, 90210) was recently mistaken for Grant Show (Jake, Beverly Hills 90210/Melrose Place).
  • Korbi at Zap2it has posted fan feedback regarding Gossip Girl’s Nate-Blair-Chuck, much like E!Online did.
  • John Burke (Bart Bass, Gossip Girl) is now on Rescue Me.
  • The April 10th issue of Entertainment Weekly is filled with teen drama content: there’s a small piece on Southland, which includes photos of Ben McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) and Michael Cudlitz (Tony, Beverly Hills 90210) during their TD days; Penelope’s (Amanda Setton) “In the last 20 minutes, I’ve been hit on by two Bronfmans and a gay designer.  It was totally worth it” line from the most recent Gossip Girl was included in the weekly SoundBites feature.  Unfortunately, so was Joel McHale’s recent quip on The Soup: “One Tree Hill can be described in many ways: unflinching cure for insomnia, worst show to take place on a hill, and inexcusable misuse of Chad Michael Murray would all work.”; Tori Spelling vs. Candy Spelling made The Bullseye, as did the news that Milligan is leaving 90210.

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

17 03 2009
  • Newsday called Gossip Girl “one of the smartest shows on television” and rated this season an A.
  • Last night’s Gossip Girl was based on the film/book, The Age of Innocence.  The New York Post provides a side-by-side comparison.
  • Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl) has one of the lead roles on Kings, a new series airing on NBC.
  • EW.com is asking readers why you love Gossip Girl and 90210.  One staffer just doesn’t see the appeal.
  • BuddyTV ranked the different parts of last night’s One Tree Hill.
  • Mark Schwahn previews next week’s episode in this video.
  • You can customize your iGoogle homepage with a One Tree Hill header.
  • Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill) gives one-word plot twists in a new video interview: dog, baby, heart, cash, hospital and love.   Also, did you know he’s is a painter in his spare time?!  Who knew?!
  • James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill) will play in a Battle of the Sexes celebrity basketball game.
  • Tori Spelling’s (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) new book, Mommywood, will no longer go head-to-head with her mother Candy’s memoir.  I’ll still be buying both!
  • SoapNet is airing commercials with Spelling talking about different Donna moments.  Really just promos to get you to watch the repeats.  Would be cool if they did this with all the characters!
  • Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 9021o) said he didn’t watch the original show growing up, choosing ninjas and Saved by the Bell instead.
  • Love this “open letter” praising Josh Schwartz.
  • The New York Times compares Schwartz’s Rockville CA to The O.C. and Gossip Girl.




Watch The O.C. from the Beginning!

(From Newsday)

HAVE A COOL CHRISMUKKAH! Remember when broody city hood Ryan first went to live with the cushy ‘burban Cohens on “The O.C.” ( TODAY 4 p.m. EST, SOAPnet)? Who knew how much we’d end up loving nerdy Seth and hating drippy Marissa? Flash back to August 2003 with the “O.C.” pilot, then savor the suds from beginning to end on SOAPnet subsequent weekdays at 3 and 4 p.m. Keep obsessing at soapnet.com/oc.
