Everything old is new again, especially when it comes to high school drama shows. Looks like 90210 is resurrecting the lesbian-character-as-plot-device, but this time, the lesbian will be played by Rumer Willis. Willis will play a “punky, cute lesbian” named Gia who works at the Blaze Newspaper at West Beverly High. She’ll be on for at least one episode.
This is the second time a lesbian has shown up in Beverly Hills – remember the time Kelly Taylor got caught in a fire with a lesbian and then that lesbian fell for Kelly on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 and stalked her? We wonder if the Jennie Garth character, who now plays a guidance counselor at West Beverly, will share some words of wisdom with her new student about how to deal with the pressures of the famous zip code. And like, how not to become a stalker. [Source: Access Hollywood, Photo: Getty Images]
