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

19 09 2009
  • Please check out my updated Twitter Directory.  With the help of some readers, I found a bunch of new fake accounts this weekend for the 90210 and Gossip Girl stars.  Please let me know if you find any more.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) is reportedly working on a reality show about her life, and hints that “I’ll be back on TV very soon. There will be an announcement very soon. I promise you that.”
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) says she draws inspiration for her character from her sister.
  • One Tree Hill’s “naked” scene between Skills (Antwon Taylor) and Mouth (Lee Norris) was one of TVGuide.com’s top moments of thse week.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) spoke to E!Online about recent controversy regarding her style and choice of dress.
  • I had a hard time choosing a winner for the Melrose Place contest, as all 3 entries I got had multiple cross-over ideas–and good ones, too!.  I narrowed each commenter’s ideas down to the one I liked best, and then chose from there.  The winner is g90210th, who suggested a cross-over between One Tree Hill’s Nathan and Clay with Melrose Place’s Ella.  Out of all the ideas, I thought this one was the most realistic and the least cliche, which is what I’d like to see in an actual cross-over.  Congrats g90210th!




Get Ready for One Tree Hill Season 7!

12 09 2009

We’re days away from One Tree Hill’s season 7 premiere!

Here’s what you need to know about last season:

After season 5 ended with a massive cliff-hanger–which girl did Lucas ask to marry him?–it is revealed that Peyton is the one Luke called and they travel to Las Vegas to get married. Realizing they want their friends and family to witness the nuptials, Leyton returns to Tree Hill where they move in together.  A few months later, Peyton finds out she’s pregnant but soon suffers complications.  The duo decide to follow the motto of carpe diem and pull-off a last-minute wedding.  The wedding night takes a disastrous turn when Peyton suffers yet another pregnancy complication but it leads to the birth of the beautiful and healthy Sawyer Brooke Scott.  We last see a happy Leyton and baby Sawyer driving in The Comet..

Earlier in the season, Lucas is ecstatic when he finds out An Unkindness of Ravens will be made into a movie.  He’s thrown for a loop, however, when the producer ends up being Peyton’s ex, Julian Baker.  Julian decides not to cause any trouble with Leyton and instead works peacefully with Lucas on the film.  After finding a director and casting the lead roles, the film is shut down.

Peyton finds out who her birth father is but is unable to forge a relationship with him.  She continues to work with Mia (who starts dating Brooke’s ex, Chase) on her music career, and helps Haley resume hers.

Brooke gets off to a bumpy start when she is assualted one night at Clothes Over Bros.  Convinced her mother is responsible for the attack, the two drift further apart.  Brooke’s faith in herself and humanity is restored when she takes in Sam, one of Haley’s troubled young students.  The two adjust to living together and develop a mother-daughter dynamic, which comes to an end when Sam decides to live with her birth mother.

Throughout this, Brooke continues to find happiness in her love life.  She rejects Owen when he comes back to town, and reluctantly starts a relationship with Julian.  Despite his efforts to convince her how much he loves her, Brooke is apprehensive to commit.  In the finale, she mends her relationship with her mother and ultimately decides Julian is one the for her and goes to him to declare her love.

Haley, Nathan and Jamie find life as they know it disrupted when Quentin–Haley’s student, Nathan’s motivator and Jamie’s role model–is murdered.  Haley is fired from her job as a teacher at Tree Hill High after she refuses to censor one of Sam’s essays. Nathan, in an effort to make his way back to the NBA, plays Slamball before realizing it is too dangerous for him.  He joins a minor league team and, in the finale, is called up to the NBA as a member of the Charlotte Bobcats.  Jamie’s growing pains include dealing  a school bully and his first crush, finding out the truth about Grandpa Dan’s past and being nearly kidnapped by Nanny Carrie (again).

Dan faces struggles in almost every aspect of his life: he’s kidnapped and tortured by Nanny Carrie, his sons still refuse to have anything to do with him and his heart conditions worse.  Add on an explosive confrontation with ex-wife Deb, and it makes for one trying year in the life of Dan Scott.

Speaking of Deb, she breaks up with Skills who takes it badly and first but rebounds with Jamie’s teacher, Miss Lauren.

Mouth and Millicent take a big step and move in together, but their relationship progress is thrawted when Gigi coms back to town and tries to get with Mouth.  After some time apart, Mouth is able to win Millicent back and they resume their relationship.

The season ends with everyone (except for Dan, perhaps) in a state of happiness and satisfaction.

Come back tomorrow for an exclusive One Tree Hill interview and come back Monday night at 8pm eastern for a live-blog of the season 7 premiere!

BREAKING NEWS: Antwon Tanner Pleads Guilty to Fraud

21 08 2009

According to Newsday.com (a reptuable, nationally-known newspaper from where I grew up), Antwon Tanner (Skills, One Tree Hill) plead guilty “in Brooklyn federal court today to illegally selling Social Security numbers for $10,000.”

Tanner, when sentenced in late November, faces up to 10 years in prison but will likely get “between 6 and 12 months, according to prosecutors, [since] there was no evidence that the numbers were actually used to defraud anyone.”

Tanner has said via Twitter that he will be appearing in One Tree Hill’s seventh season, which premieres Sept. 14.

I will update as more info comes in, but Tanner isn’t expected to comment until his sentencing.

He was first arrested in April.  I am doing a revised version of the poll I had posted then.

Breaking News: Antwon Tanner Arrested!

16 04 2009

Antwon Tanner (Skills, One Tree Hill) surrendered to authorities in Brooklyn today and was subsequently indicted on charges of fraud in connection to trafficking illegal Social Security cards, reports the New York Post.

According to Buddy TV, this will likely lead Tanner, who turned 34 on Tuesday, to be fired from the show.

I had the opportunity to interview Tanner last spring and he was extremely sweet and genuine.  I am absolutely in shock.  But let’s remember: everyone is innocent until proven guilty.





Happy Birthday Antwon Tanner!

14 04 2009

Tanner (Skills, One Tree Hill) turned 34 today.

To celebrate, check out this classic Skills scene below!





Spoiler: Watch with Kristin

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

Antonia in Miami: Please, I need some Gossip Girl scoop on Blair and Chuck! And good news, too. I’m tired of the bad news.
I can offer you a little good news about Chuck and Blair on Gossip Girl, but unfortunately it’s just a setup for the bad news. Nate notices that Chuck and Blair have a major bond (yay!), but that leads him to respond/retaliate by asking Blair to move in with him (boo!). However, there will be some upcoming Chair scenes for you kiddos, because Mr. and Mrs. Marvelous join forces to investigate Serena’s new man, whom they both don’t much like. At least it’s something.

Belinda in Memphis, Tenn.: What’s up with season three of Gossip Girl? Do we know anything yet?
I know that Blair gets into NYU and Nate gets into Columbia.

Cynthia in Seattle: Anything coming up with the Elle/Chuck storyline on Gossip Girl?
According to Kate French (Elle), “Elle kind of steals Chuck Bass’ heart, and it gets really complicated, and he gets entangled in all of these webs of lies and different storylines that are going on. It’s very mysterious.” Hopefully Chuck won’t be smitten for too long, but then again how can we blame him when Blair’s about to go off and hook up with his BFF, Nate?

Alexandra in Lynchburg, Va.: Thanks for including all three Scotts in the Alpha Male Madness tournament. I’m personally working hard to take down Dan Scott. Now give me One Tree Hill scoop, woman!
OK, but only because you’re gunning for TV’s “man most in need of a beatdown!” Anyhoo, look for Nick Lachey and Julian to come to blows, and Skills is getting a new girl! He moves on from Nanny Deb to Jamie’s teacher (Allison Munn, whom you might remember as Amanda Bynes‘ character’s BFF on What I Like About You).
