90210 Logo

Well, gang…we have less than a week for the season premiere of 90210!!!  This is very exciting, and I’ve been keeping mum about so many things I’ve learned will be happening this season on the show.  So, now I’m going to share everything I know in celebration that the new season is about to begin.

First, a bit of a recap.  Season 1 ended with Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) having a huge falling out after Naomi mistakenly believed that Annie slept with Liam (Matt Lanter).  However, it was actually Naomi’s sister, Jen (Sara Foster), who actually slept with Liam.  After their falling out and Annie’s walk of shame out of the party at Naomi’s, Annie took to the bottle and went for a drive.  Annie’s drive ended with her running over someone.  Meanwhile, Liam went home where he was abducted by some militant guys that were going to take him away to boarding school per his step-father’s orders.  Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and Silver’s (Jessica Stroup) relationship continued to weaken, while Silver realized that Ethan (Dustin Milligan) had actually developed feelings for her.  Silver also realized that she has bipolar.  Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) had her baby with Navid (Michael Steger) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) at her side.  Brenda adopted a baby after learning that she could not have children.  Donna (Tori Spelling) returned from Japan and we learned she became a famous fashion designer and was having problems with David (Brian Austin Green).  However, Donna once again left Beverly Hills, to go back to Japan and try to reconcile with David.  Harry (Rob Estes) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) rekindled their friendship which turned out to possibly be something more, and this made Debbie (Lori Loughlin) uncomfortable.  Kelly also revealed that the father of her child is actually Dylan (Luke Perry), and she had a brief romance with Ryan (Ryan Eggold).  Silver and Kelly learned that their mother, Jackie (Anne Gillespie) had returned to drugs and alcohol, and finally Ethan left town (though we don’t know why yet).

There will be new cast members this year in the form of Teddy (Trevor Donovan of Days of Our Lives fame), Jasper (Zachary Ray Sherman), and Ivy (Amalia Zinser).  Plus Rumer Willis (daughter to Demi Moore and Bruce Willis) will be guest starring this season!

Annie will continue her downward spiral, which will lead her to a romance with Jasper.  Turns out that Jasper is the brother of the guy that Annie killed in the season finale, and he will be blackmailing and manipulating her throughout the season.

So, another old fave is returning to Melrose…Daphne Zuniga is returning for a few episodes as Jo Reynolds.  You may all remember that Jo moved into the complex about half way through the first season replacing Sandy Louise Harling (Amy Locane).  Jo came on the scene as a photographer with a lot of baggage and was a total rebel.  She carried a gun and rode a motorcycle.  Total bad ass!  😉  Anywho, after a few seasons, Jo was softened beyond recognition and soon found herself always being the damsel in distress.  That said, her romance with Jake Hanson (Grant Show) was definitely one for the ages on Melrose.  They had great chemistry, but were always being broken up by other characters.  Jo found herself at odds with Jane (Josie Bissett) when Jo began dating Richard (Patrick Muldoon) who was Jane’s ex.  Jo left Melrose after some guy she was dating proposed to her and took her away.  Now, Jo will be returning to Melrose as a professional photographer.  No news yet on what her story will be.  But I’ll keep looking!  Daphne marks the fourth original cast member to return to Melrose, with Laura Leighton (Sydney), Thomas Calabro (Michael), and Jose Bissett (Jane) also set to return.

In other casting news, Brooke Burns of Baywatch fame, is also moving into Melrose.  Brooke will be playing Michael’s (Thomas Calabro) wife, Vanessa Mancini.  Apparently Michael will be up to his old antics and Vanessa will get caught up in it all.

Also, fans of the original series will remember when Sydney (Laura Leighton) worked for a famous Hollywood Madame, played by Days of Our Live’s Kristian Alfonso (Hope on Days).  Well, it looks like one of the new residents will be repeating history…and the new Madame has been cast.  She will be played by Kelly Carlson of Nip/Tuck fame.

If you’ve been watching The CW at all this summer, you’ve been seeing a few promos for the new Melrose set to the sound of Britney Spears.  Well, here are a few promo posters for the new series.  Looks like Melrose is going to be hotter than ever!!!!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve put in a new post, it’s just that things have been so crazy.

Anywho, I came across this tidbit of news today, and it’s a doozy!  Josie Bissett is returning to Melrose as Jane Andrews-Mancini for at least one episode.  I’m assuming it would be for her sister Sydney’s (Laura Leighton) funeral.

Fans of the original Melrose will remember that Jane is the ex-wife of Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro) and the sister of Sydney (Laura Leighton), two characters and actors who are both returning.

I can’t wait to see Jane back in action!  What do you all think??

The CW is dishing out promo posters for all their shows!  Here’s the promo poster for season 1 of Melrose Place.  And as an extra special treat, I’ve also included the first cast photo for season 1 of Melrose Place!  Enjoy!

It has been confirmed that the new “Melrose Place” will air right after “90210” on Tuesday nights here in the states.  WOO HOO!!!!!  I’m really excited that we’ll have them on back to back.  It’s also been hinted that there may be a few crossovers between the two shows, which also makes me VERY excited!  The CW’s website has added a “Melrose Place” section that includes the new commercial for the series as well as this cast photo:

Also, Shaun Sipos (who originally was supposed to be the son of Jake Hanson (Grant Show), is now going to be playing David Breck (the son of Michael Mancini).  I wonder who David’s mother will be?  Could it be Jane (Josie Bissett)?  Kimberly (Marcia Cross)?  Meghan (Kelly Rutherford)?  Sydney (Laura Leighton)?  My guess is this.  I bet that David turns out to be Michael and Sydney’s son.  I’m thinking that this will explain Syd’s apparent death during her and Craig’s (David Charvet) wedding.  I could totally see this happening:  Sydney is so excited about her wedding to Craig and so in love with him.  All of a sudden, she decides to take a pregnancy test and finds out that she’s pregnant.  She looks at the timeline for how far along she is and realizes that she got pregnant from Michael (Thomas Calabro) and not Craig.  So, she doesn’t want to hurt Craig because she loves him so much and he’s so good to her.  Instead, she fakes her death and runs away to have her baby elsewhere.  Totally sounds like a Melrose Place plot.  I wonder if I’ll be right?

Also, The CW has released it’s Fall 2009 schedule.  Some interesting things to discuss.  Here’s the schedule:

THE CW FALL 2009 SCHEDULE

MONDAY
8-9 p.m.: Gossip Girl
9-10 p.m.: One Tree Hill

TUESDAY
8-9 p.m.: 90210
9-10 p.m.: Melrose Place

WEDNESDAY
8-9 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model
9-10 p.m.: The Beautiful Life

THURSDAY
8-9 p.m.: Vampire Diaries
9-10 p.m.: Supernatural

FRIDAY
8-9 p.m.: Smallville
9-10 p.m.: America’s Next Top Model repeat

Sure to tick off many fans of Smallville, the show has been bumped to Friday nights.  We all know that any show bumped to Friday nights is dead.  Friday nights are just not a good night for TV.  So, I’m thinking that this could be the final season of Smallville, unless the fans unite and figure out a way to save it.

“Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill” have worked well together, so that’s a no brainer.  “90210” and “Melrose” have always been destined to be back to back (the way they started off in the 90’s on Wednesdays).  Ashton Kutcher’s “The Beautiful Life” makes sense with “America’s Next Top Model” since they are both shows about models.  “The Vampire Diaries” needed a home, and even though “Smallville” and “Supernatural” worked well together, it also makes sense to put “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural” together.  The CW is going to own TV this fall with such talked about new shows and proven hits returning.  Also, note that “Privileged” has DEFINITELY been cancelled.  😦  Too bad, I really liked that show.  And also, “Valley Girls” (the Gossip Girl spinoff), as I previously told you, has been bumped to a possible mid-season replacement show.  What do you all think of this new lineup and the Melrose scoop??

At the recent CW Upfront Party, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively of Gossip Girl met up with new Melrose Place star, Michael Rady and his date.  Speaking of Melrose Place, I just saw the first promo for the new show last night on TV and it looked AWESOME!!!!  Lots of clips of the new cast and the new complex, with the commercial theme music being Britney Spears’ “Circus”.  Also, Sydney (Laura Leighton) got a lot of air time during the commercial.  I’m so excited for this new Melrose Place (which by the way, according to the commercial, will actually be called Melrose Place).  I’ll be digging up as much info as I can on the show until it’s debut!

So, there was this HUGE leak, and now the premise of the first season of the new Melrose Place has been uncovered!!!!

Sydney (Laura Leighton) is dead…again!  As the first episode of the new show starts, we will see Sydney’s dead body floating in the pool at the Melrose complex.  Why bring back Laura Leighton’s character just to kill her again?  Well, her death sets off the mystery that will carry throughout the first season…a “whodunit”.  Of course Michael (Thomas Calabro) will be one of the primary suspects.  As for Laura Leighton just coming back to be killed off again, her story will unfold all season long through flashbacks.  In these flashbacks, we’ll also learn how she came back to life after being run over on her’s and Craig’s (David Charvet) wedding day.  I’m guessing that the flashbacks will also introduce us to all the suspects in this murder mystery.  Sounds pretty cool to me, though I’m bummed that Syd will be dead again.  Still, a season long murder mystery is always fun…remember the first season of Desperate Housewives???  What do you all think???
