Kelly Taylor and Dylan McKay hooked up, broke up, reunited, had a kid together, broke up again … and most recently, she chose a Old Navy jeans over him. Through it all, Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Luke Perry have remained nothing but close friends, as far as we can tell. Their friendship even led to Perry’s cameo on Garth’s sitcom What I Like About You. So when we heard from Perez Hilton and the National Enquirer that the newly divorced Jennie, 40, and Luke, 45, might have taken a step beyond just-friends after reuniting for those Old Navy ads, it warmed our fangirl hearts.
“Since seeing Luke again, Jennie has fallen in love with him and Luke feels the same,” a source told the Enquirer, via the New York Post. “There is an electricity between them that has been revived after all these years. It just happened.”
But maybe we shouldn’t be planning a 90210-themed wedding just yet. Perry’s rep debunked the gossip, telling E! Online yesterday, “This story is not true.” And Garth’s rep reiterated to the Post that they are still just close pals. Argh! Darn those publicists and their attachment to truth. Well, maybe it is true but they haven’t informed their teams just yet? Realistic or not, we are going to hold onto this hope for just a little while longer.
