  • Kelly Tenney (co-producer, One Tree Hill) did a video interview with Karen, a One Tree Hill production secretary.

  • Zap2it also has an interview with Burton about White Collar.
  • As I hinted to earlier, Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) are not an on again as a couple, despite reports claiming otherwise. Gossip Cop has the accurate details.
  • Love this tweet from Ellen DeGeneres congratulating Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) on his Teen Choice 2010 win.
  • InStyle has a brief interview with Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) about wearing a brunette wig for Burlesque, which also features Christina Aguilera (music guest-star, Beverly Hills 90210), Peter Gallagher (Sandy, The O.C.) and Cam Gigandet (Volchok, The O.C.).
  • The full trailer for The Romantics, starring Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) and featuring Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) has been released. I believe Holmes also produced. I am really looking forward to it. It seems to have many teen drama elements, though the characters are older.
  • Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek) is now on Twitter. The account is linked to the Life Unexpected cast Facebook page. I’ve updated the Twitter Directory. Thanks to MJ for letting me know.




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

4 05 2010
  • Last night’s One Tree Hill (1.9 million viewers) and Gossip Girl (1.7 million viewers) both had drops in the ratings compared to last week. OTH’s was tiny, though.
  • Zap2it did a nice roundup of the tweets Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill) sent last night.
  • Zap2it also has a “first look” at two of The CW’s pilots, including Nomads, which stars Michaela McManus (Lindsey, One Tree Hill) but they don’t have photos with her.
  • Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl), Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl), Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl), Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl), Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.), Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl), Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl) and Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) were among the attendees at last night’s annual MET Costume Gala. There may have been others from the teen dramas but those are the ones I know of.
  • Nicole Fiscella (Isabel, Gossip Girl) will give the commencement speech at the University of Bridgeport.
  • OnTheRedCarpet.com has short, spoilish video interviews with Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210).
  • TVGuideMagazine.com also has a short but spoilish interview with Lowndes.
  • Examiner.com has a spoilish interview with Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210).

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).

  • NBC Los Angeles has a brief interview with Laura Harring (Elizabeth, Gossip Girl).
  • TVGuideMagazine.com says One Tree Hill has less than a 50 percent chance of renewal.
  • I (almost) 100 percent agree with this Open Letter To One Tree Hill Fans, which points out some of the reasons it’s time we let the show go.
  • Oxygen announced a new series, Tori & Dean: Weddings, starring Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Wonderwall has an interview with Spelling that includes some BH90210-related questions.
  • This recap of last night’s Life Unexpected, which stars Kerr Smith (Jack, Dawson’s Creek), references one of my favorite DC episodes, 3.19, Stolen Kisses.

  • Last night’s 90210 (1.5 million viewers) dropped quite a bit in the ratings compared to last week, hitting a new season- and series-low. If you recall, two weeks ago was a season/series-low of 1.7 and now the show has sunk even lower.
  • Love TVGuideMagazine.com’s recap/pop quiz about last night’s 90210. It’s quite funny and quite accurate, IMO.
  • About.com has an interview with Tristan Wilds (Dixon, 90210).

  • Douglas Emerson (Scott, Beverly Hills 90210) is included in TVGuide.com’s photogallery of ’90s Stars We Want Back on TV.
  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) are part of the new Op campaign. They previously featured AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill).
  • The Austin Post-Bulletin has a surprisingly well-written piece by a male teenager explaining his love of Gossip Girl.
  • The Jewish Journal has an interesting feature on Bryan Greenberg (Jake, One Tree Hill).
  • Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.) makes her first appearance on The Vampire Diaries tomorrow night.
