Silver Breaks Down on 90210

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,


Tuesday’s episode of attacked some very serious subject matter: mental illness. In a series of intense scenes, Erin Silver (played by Jessica Stroup) struggled to find her very confused way through the emotional upheaval of lost love.

Attack is just the right way to describe how the topic was handled. I was immediately impressed with the dizzying direction used for Silver’s first train station scene, with the camera whirring around her as she spit out her words without taking a breath (viewable in the clip above). The episode, “Off the Rails,” was directed by (who has made many behind-the-camera contributions to the show through the season).

90210: No Longer a Spelling-Free Zip?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip, Rumors,

Tori Spelling is rumored to be in talks, again, with the CW hit 90210. According to gossip, the producers would love to get Spelling on set to reprise her role as good girl Donna Martin, perhaps even while former cast mate Jason Priestley is directing. With Jennie Garth and Shannon Doherty on and off the set, 90210 could soon be the site of an old home week for the actors.

Spelling and CW reps have remained mum on the subject, but allegedly the minds behind want to feature Donna toward the end of the season. They are currently talking, which is always a good sign.

Tori originally to join the cast for a few episodes, but bowed out after giving birth to a new baby girl. Industry gossip says that Spelling wasn’t offered the same monetary amount as Doherty and Garth, which became the real reason Tori dropped the project.

90210 Shocker: Is Brenda About to Die?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip, Rumors,

EW CoverWhen I saw the promo for the next Brenda-infused episode of 90210, I was so busy celebrating the return of I almost missed the content of the previewed scene: she’s in a hospital bed. Even this isn’t extremely shocking…until you pair it with the current rumors which are sweeping the Web.

Many are suggesting that Brenda Walsh is going to become ill and die, the first in the original cast to find such an on-screen fate. The CW and Doherty aren’t commenting, but recently broached the subject with Access Hollywood.

“This is all news to me,” he said of the rumor, saying the idea is “fantastic.” He continued, “that is going to be awesome. No, they haven’t given me anything yet. I don’t even know if the episode is written yet, but I love all those rumors. That is juicy stuff.” You said it, Brandon.

Which is exactly why I think the rumors have been instigated by the show itself. Many fans are drawn to the series for the hope of seeing Brenda alone…so why would they get rid of her?

90210 to Reunite Walsh Twins?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,

Brandon and Brenda Walsh fans (many of whom are really just Beverly Hills, 90210 fans, now older but perhaps not wiser in their TV choices) have been waiting for the day when the new series will reunite two very important members from the original cast: Brenda and Brandon Walsh. New buzz suggests that Jason Priestley and Shannen Doherty may be paired on the show again…just not the way we really want.

Priestley has at last agreed to appear on the set, though not to reprise his role as Brandon. Instead, he’ll come back to direct. Priestley previously directed eighteen episodes of the original series way back in the 90s, and has more recently directed a couple of episodes of the ABC Family hit .

“I think I sort of ran the gamut with Brandon - 249 episodes,” said to Access last June. “I think Brandon did his time.”

But Brenda did not. CW reps have confirmed that will do two new episodes for the series. Will Priestley direct his on-screen sister? On that issue, the CW isn’t confirming or denying the possibility. “I think it would be a kick for Jason,” said executive producer Gabe Sachs. “But we don’t know whether that will happen yet.”

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, The CW, Gossip,

Shannen DohertyAlthough she was originally signed on for only four episodes, it looks like 90210 may be graced with more Shannen Doherty appearances this season.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Shannen will be adding two more episodes to her IMDB profile. While the deal has not yet been confirmed, its reportedly just a matter of her signing on the dotted line.

Meanwhile, another Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has just agreed to put in some hours on the CW set. Jason Priestley - who still has no current intentions to be in front of the camera - is now scheduled to direct the drama’s 18th episode. That hour is expected to air sometime in the spring.
