News Roundup: Gossip Girl, The O.C., 90210 and One Tree Hill

19 04 2010
  • The Brown Daily Herald has an interesting article on the school’s portrayal in entertainment media, including how it was depicted on Gossip Girl and The O.C.
  • Zap2it has photos of Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) in her New Look campaign.
  • You can bid on a tour of the Gossip Girl set with Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota, Gossip Girl) in support of Shakespeare on the Common.
  • TVGuideMagazine.com has an interesting “exclusive” about Rob Estes (Harry, 90210) leaving the show. Here’s what’s new: quotes from Lori Loughlin (Debbie) and Shenae Grimes (Annie), and the suggestion that the finale is the last episode with Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210).  Loughlin and Grimes don’t seem too happy (though not entirely unhappy, either) and I was under the impression that Garth’s last episode had already aired. Here’s what’s not new: Debbie and Harry are having marriage problems and that will somehow play into Harry’s exit. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.
  • showbizzle, the digital company run by Charles Rosin (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210), has relaunched its website. There’s a pretty nifty video explaining what showbizzle is (if you haven’t read my interview with Rosin about it–or even if you have!) and you can see a little of Ian Ziering (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • General Hospital’s headwriter told Soap Opera Digest he is in talks with Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210), something we also heard a few months ago.
  • The New York Post has an article on stars getting acting experience through soap operas and it features a few quotes from Marcil.
  • The new One Tree Hill Connection podcast features an interview with Tym Bucheran (make-up artist, One Tree Hill).

News Roundup: Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek

  • CNN has an interesting article on Gossip Girls’ effect on the Empire Hotel, which is used by the show.
  • Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210) got a formspring.me account so fans could ask him questions.
  • Last week’s issue of Soap Opera Digest (dated January 12) have a feature examining blonde vs. brunette scenarios on daytime and primetime, including 3 teen dramas. 1. Both Kelly vs. Brenda and Kelly vs. Valerie (Beverly Hills 90210), with points awarded to Kelly in both instances. 2. Dawson vs. Pacey (Dawson’s Creek) with a “win” for Pacey. It inaccurately says Joey and Pacey broke up after she lost her virginity to him. They also could’ve done Jen vs. Joey. 3. Peyton vs. Brooke (One Tree Hill), with a point for Peyton and a half-point for Brooke being mature about it. This last one, especially, was incredibly over-simplified, bordering on misleading and inaccurate. There were great pictures for all.
  • While thinking about the Beverly Hills 90210 anniversaries this year brings, I found this Star News article from two years ago that, in honor of Dawson’s Creek’s 10-year anniversary, revisits interacting factoids about the show.
  • This article on Life Unexpected suggests Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek) will be there for the long-haul, despite the vibe I got after watching the first three episodes.

  • Found this pretty cool take on recreating fashion styles as seen on Beverly Hills 90210 in the early 90s.
  • The CW sent out a press release about its schedule for the rest of the TV year: as previously reported, we’ve got One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected beginning January 18, but now we know repeats of LUX and Gossip Girl will air Wednesday nights until March. Also, as previously reported, LUX takes OTH’s spot on March 8 so new episodes of GG can air. 90210 returns with its new episodes the next night, March 9. Then on April 19, LUX is finished and we’ve got new episodes of OTH and GG through the end of the season.
  • PEOPLE.com has a poll asking whether Adam Lambert should guest-star on Gossip Girl or other shows.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) will star in Green Lantern, whose screenplay was written by Greg Berlanti (writer- producer, Dawson’s Creek).
  • Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) will be among the presenters at the Golden Globes on January 17.
  • There are brief mentions of Gossip Girl and The O.C. in this fun interview with Josh Schwartz (creator of both).
  • You can see Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) on How I Met Your Mother this Monday.
  • Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.) will appear on The Vampire Diaries, which only adds to the following…
  • How did I not know Kayla Ewell (Casey, The O.C.) was on The Vampire Diaries, which was created by Kevin Williamson (creator, Dawson’s Creek) and also stars Paul Wesley (Donnie, The O.C.)? Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) spoke very fondly of their (now long ago) relationship when I interviewed him in ’08. On The O.C., Ewell starred alongside Cam Gigandet (Volchok, The O.C), who was also in the Twilight films with Lutz and, of course, Nikki Reed (Sadie, The O.C.) and Jackson Rathbone (Justin, The O.C.). Six degrees…
  • There’s an interview with Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek) in the new issue of Soap Opera Digest.
