Actually, for Tori Spelling, it’s all about the money. She’s dead broke and needs the appearance fee to pay off the ever-increasing debt that she and her husband find themselves in. It’s scary to think the daughter of the show’s creator is living paycheck to paycheck but that’s the ‘reality’ of Spelling’s situation.
She didn’t even appear on the panel and yet Shannen Doherty managed to steal the show. She timed a live Instagram story – exalting her animal rescue charity – to coincide with the reunion Q&A, which was projected onto a large screen hanging behind her former castmates — to a standing ovation from the crowd, ticking off her co-stars.
After wrapping the event, Gabrielle Carteris found herself being chatted up by a serious fan. The young woman discussed the lesbian subtext projected by Carteris’ character Andrea and then, wanting to fulfill her childhood fantasy, leaned in for a kiss with her idol!
Marital Drama x2
Jason Priestley is dissatisfied with his marriage to Camille, an uber publicist who also reps her husband. He and Garth give in to years of pent up lust and have sex in his hotel room. Later Ian Ziering learns that his fitness model wife is cheating on him when she accidentally broadcasts the romp over a video call.
9021 Uh Oh
Spelling is having a heck of a time seeing all the series merchandise being sold and knowing that she and her co-stars will never see a dime of the profits. After doing shots with Brian Austin Green, she notices a display case housing one of her very favorite costumes from the show.
After calling her co-stars for assistance, Spelling tries to get into the case. When that fails, she smashes the glass and steals the dress – modeling mannequin and all! It’s a hollow victory however, as the entire gang are apprehended by police and booked on charges of destruction of private property and grand larceny.
During the melee that followed, Spelling’s display B&E, Green realized that his wallet was missing. It was picked up by a fan who had previously asked Green a question about feeling like a loner. He uses the ID inside to track down the actor and pinpoint his house but continues to hold onto Green’s personal property.
Spelling is desperate for cash – bail is EXPENSIVE after all. And after witnessing her kids watching old episodes of 90210, she hits upon the motherload of ideas: it’s time to reboot the classic series! Now, how to get the other actors on board…
Honoring The Past
While there were plenty of laughs and drama in this first episode, it was hard to prepare for the tears we knew would come — during a simple flashback of the late Luke Perry. It was then frozen, much like our memories of him, to allow for the dedication.
