News Roundup: 90210, One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl

4 08 2010
  • SoapNet announced a Beverly Hills 90210 and One Tree Hill marathon for this Sunday, during OTH’s normal 3-7pm timeslot, featuring two “school-themed episodes” of each. I was going to wait to mention this but it’s worth noting now that OTH will not air in its normal slot next Sunday, to allow for a special General Hospital marathon featuring Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Marcil now has an official site.
  • Marcil will be on The View tomorrow.
  • Zap2it has a brief interview with Marcil about General Hospital.
  • Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) and hubby Peter Facinelli have put their home up for sale.
  • BuzzSugar has a spoiler-filled interview with Matt Lanter (Liam, 90210).
  • Ryan O’Neal (Spence, 90210) will film a reality show called Lost & Found with his daughter, Tatum.
  • Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) tweeted that he is running a half-marathon. If you recall, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) wrote a blog post earlier this week saying she plans to do the same.
  • The Associated Press has an interesting but brief video interview with Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill). It includes her saying the quotes about her personal life that were released earlier this week.
  • Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) is in a new PSA for Stand Up To Cancer.

Exclusive: A Quick Chat With 90210’s Trevor Donovan

23 03 2010

I had the privilege of recently catching up with 90210’s Trevor Donovan via e-mail. The three big take-aways from our conversation: you can keep calling him Ken, don’t be afraid to (respectfully) approach him on the street and, oh yeah, tune into the show!

TeenDramaWhore: When you joined the show over the summer, did you have any idea Teddy would still be around all these months later?

Trevor Donovan: I wasn’t sure. I was just having a great time working with the cast.

TDW: Will you be back for season 3?

Donovan: Stay tuned.

TDW: What’s been the easiest thing about working on 90210 and what’s been the hardest?

Donovan: Easiest: well, working with such great cast mates. Hardest: being so close to the beach and not be able to surf.

TDW: There’s two things we know are coming up for Teddy: more interaction with Silver [Jessica Stroup] and Teddy’s father, Spence [Ryan O’Neal], comes to town. Can you tell us what to expect with those?

Donovan: Expect good things.  Love Jessica Stroup… she’s amazing.

TDW: The show has shown its philanthropic side by collaborating with Habitat for Humanity and Warriors in Pink. What were those experiences like for you?

Donovan: A lot of fun.  Am looking forward to doing more..

TDW: In an episode earlier this season, Ivy [Gillian Zinser] jokingly told Teddy not to tweet about her relationship with Liam [Matt Lanter]. As an actor, what value do you think Twitter has?

Donovan: Well, it is such a random thing… if I think of it, I’ll text a tweet.

TDW: A lot of people have looked at you this past year and compared you to a Ken doll. Compliment or insult?

Donovan: Ken is world-known and treated his lady (Barbie) pretty well, as far as I know….so, I’ll take it as a compliment.

TDW: Have you had any interesting fan encounters?

Donovan: Every one of them. I really like meeting fans.

TDW: What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

Donovan: I sing and play guitar.

TDW: What other projects are you working on?

Donovan: Right now I’m taking a vacation and helping out my Mom on the house. Stayed tuned for future projects. Thanks for chatting. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of season 2 of 90210. Keep watching!

Come back Sunday for another exclusive interview!

News Roundup: 90210, Dawson’s Creek and The O.C.

7 01 2010
  • Ryan O’Neal has been cast as Spence Montgomery, father to Teddy (Trevor Donovan). We’ve known for a while that we’d see Spence in upcoming episodes but this is the first casting announcement.
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) is working on a new book, tentatively titled uncharted terriTORI and scheduled for release in June.
  • While researching something earlier, I came across this New York Times article from 2000, which was published shortly before Beverly Hills 90210 ended. On May 17, it will be 10 years since the series finale. (In September, it will be 20 years since the series premiere!)
  • Finding the above article reminded me of this one, which quoted me when I was all of 12 years old!
  • Beginning Monday, The CW will allow people to watch the first ten minutes of Life Unexpected, starring Shiri Appleby (Rene, Beverly Hills 90210) and Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek), on their Facebook Fan page.
  • CNN has an interesting article on The Beautiful Life, starring Mischa Barton (Marissa, The O.C.) being on YouTube.




Spoiler: Watch With Kristin

15 12 2009

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

Maurice in Pittsburgh: What the what? I just read Josh Schwartz’s quote that Jenny and Chuck have something coming up on Gossip Girl. Please tell me Little J is not coming between Blair and Chuck. I’ll die!
Your life is spared. An inside source tells me that Jenny and Chuck don’t really have any big storylines together this season, so I’m assuming Josh meant Jenny will have a big storyline and Chuck will have a big storyline, but they are not the same storyline. Chuck’s story involves the possible surprise return of his believed-to-be-dead mother (and Jack Bass), and Jenny’s involves another couple she comes between…guesses?

Wanda Two Saints: Kristin, are you really not going to tell us who Jenny will be interfering with? That’s low, even for you!
Only because I like old friends with bad glasses, I will reveal that Jenny is going to “get in between Nate and Serena,” according to my rock-solid Gossip Girl source. We likey? We hatey? I’m thinking more of the latter…

Drew in St. Paul, Minn.: Has Serena’s father been cast yet on Gossip Girl?
Not yet. But he’s coming before the season ends.

Holly: How about some news on 90210? I’ll take anything on Dixon…love him.
And apparently he loves to gamble. Or he will, soon. I’m also hearing we will meet Teddy’s movie star father, Spence.

Just want to say we already know about Teddy/Spence (but I forget who first had it) and point out that Brandon on Beverly Hills 90210 also had a gambling problem.
