  • 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.).

9 10 2009
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted that she’s unhappy that the media prints her tweets for their own gain.  I’m assuming, of course, that TDW isn’t part of the problem!

The first one was also included in their 90s flashback gallery.
  • Donna and David’s wedding (Beverly Hills 90210) and Naley’s second wedding (One Tree Hill) made TVGuide.com’s list of The Most Memorable TV Weddings, BUT this seems to be repeat of a list (with some minor updates) they had in April.  They even used the same exact gallery on their site, so the old one no longer exists.  The links just bring you to the modified version.  I think we call that cheating.
  • Kristin has some more details on the Gossip Girl threesome.  Make sure you read the comments.
  • Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) has joined the cast of Burlesque. Cam Gigandet (Volchok, The O.C.) also stars.
  • Southland, starring Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) and Michael Cudlitz (Tony, Beverly Hills 90210) has been canceled.  One TV critic is wondering if a third O.C. star will see his show axed: Californication, which features Peter Gallagher (Sandy). (The second was The Beautiful Life starring Mischa Barton [Marissa]).
  • James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) stars in a Hallmark movie airing in December.
