5 Things You Wish You Didn’t Know About the New 90210

As learned during an ill-advised reading of an EW article:

1. The good girl role, currently being played by scarily toothpickish Shenae Grimes (Degrassi: The Next Generation) was originally offered to Hillary Duff.

2. Most of the character were created by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), who after collecting his paycheck from the devil, dumped this project, in order to revive Cupid at ABC. No, I didn’t feel that show needed to be revived either.

3. Actors have been complaining about frequent script rewrites due to studio (the ailing CW and CBS Productions) interference.

4. Ian Ziering has supposedly expressed interest in coming back to the show, but the showrunners won’t let him, because they say nobody really wants to see Steve again. They are probably right. Ian Ziering, bless his little heart, positively reeks of desperation these day. Not a good look.

5. As to whether the father of Kelly Taylor’s (Jennie Garth) 4-year-old son is Dylan (Luke Perry) or Brandon (Jason Priestly) — according to Garth, “I have a feeling whichever guy shows up on the show first, that’s who the father will be.” High standards. Thy name is 90210.
