For those of you who have yet to look at a calendar this morning, today’s date is September 2, 2010. Or, if you’re the type who prefers both brevity and decimal points, 9.02.10. In honor of such a momentous date, we thought we would pay tribute to the all-star cast of one of the greatest creative achievements of our lifetimes, Beverly Hills, 90210. (After all, it’s now or never; most of us won’t be around to celebrate the next time this date rolls around!)
It has been nearly 20 years since the show debuted on the (then fledgling) Fox Network, and it’s fair to say that none of our lives have been the same since. Dylan McKay and Brandon Walsh taught young men everywhere that nothing is more attractive than the combination of brooding glares and bitchin’ sideburns, and Brenda Walsh, Kelly Taylor and Donna Martin (Graduates!) proved to be some of the era’s biggest fashion icons (even if we laugh at their sundresses and chokers now).
So, won’t you join us as we take a trip down memory lane and through the halls of West Beverly High as we investigate how the show’s core cast members and impressive roster of guest stars (Hilary Swank! Ryan Seacrest! Um, Jamie Walters?!?) looked then and what they look like now. May the bridges we burn light the way!
There’s as much drama in Tori Spelling‘s life as there is in any episode of Beverly Hills 90210, which she starred in from 1990 until 2000. If it’s not her on-again, off-again rift with her mother, it’s her weight, if it’s not her weight, it’s her now ex-friends. Spelling was on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show yesterday and said that she no longer speaks to her 90210 castmates.
Tori told Seacrest “[Tiffani Thiessen]Ã‚Â doesn’t talk to me anymore” and then said “All my cast members hate me. People say, ‘Do you mean duringÃ‚Â 90210?’ I say, ‘No, we were great friends during90210. We were friends afterÃ‚Â 90210.’ They all came to my first wedding.Ã‚Â All of a sudden I marry Dean [McDermott], and I don’t know what happened, I lost all my cast members.” Seacrest then tells her that he doesn’t get that vibe from Thiessen, saying “[she]Ã‚Â never said anything bad about you Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I think she likes you a lot,” Tori’s response was “It’s my perception, and nonetheless, it’s a fun story.”
Now, look, as much as we’re fascinated by Tori and all her sTories she tells to pad out book after book, we’re a little less than convinced about this one – sounds to us like it’s just being used to sell copies ofÃ‚Â Uncharted TerriTORI. And it sounds like if Tiffani Thiessen didn’t have a beef with Tori before, Tori’s flippant “fun story” perspective about talking smack about her co-stars might just lead to one.
