ABC Daytime PR chief Jori Petersen is reassurring One Life to Live fans that their show isn’t in danger of cancellation because of news that ABC is developing a talk show for former Beverly Hills 90210 actress and reality star Tori Spelling. In a statement to TV Guide Magazine she responded to the cancellation concerns and addressed the rumors surrounding Ron Carlivati’s status as head writer, now that Jean Passanante has joined the OLTL writing team.
On cancellation concerns,
"We want OLTL to succeed and are doing everything we can to facilitate that,” says Petersen. “We want the show to be fantastic and robust. There are no plans for cancellation." READ MORE
Another scenario is that one of its current daytime shows is, uh, going away. We're pretty sure The View is staying put, so that leaves one of the soaps as potentially heading to the exit. But don't panic yet, soap fans, there is no guarantee that the Spelling show will get off the ground. ABC could also try to sell it to a cable network or syndicate it to local television stations.READ MORE
Bad news David (Brian Austin Green) and Donna (Tori Spelling) fans. It looks like you could end up waiting for your fave Pitted Peaches to reunite on 90210 as long as Silver waited to pop Donna's cherry on the original teen soap. EW.com's Michael Ausiello is reporting Green is thisclose to joining the cast of another CW series, One Tree Hill.
Fresh from the high profile flop that was Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Green could possibly play a "Jerry Maguire-esque sports agent" named Clayton who will rep OTH's true leading man Nathan (James Lafferty). (Sorry, I always preferred Nate's storylines to Lucas's wussy Great Gatsby Goes to Basketball Camp sagas.) Green's addition to the cast would be one of several to help fill the void of Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) and Peyton (Hilarie Burton), whose starcrossed characters tied the knot in the sixth season finale and vacated the series after real life contract squabbles reportedly didn't end amicably.

Waiting in rapt anticipation for Donna Martin (Tori Spelling) to return to the 90210 zip code? Check out this clip of Donna's return to 90210.
Since it's for a good cause, I wanna play nice, but 90210's Tori Spelling needs her old ass whupped for going out to the Heart Truth Red Dress Collection Fall 2009 Fashion Show looking like somebody's burlesque show kewpie doll on acid! Tori is my age, so it's high time she left that kind of foolishness to the Mylie Cyrus's and the Katie Perry's of the world. I don't know how Jennie Garth can stand there with a straight face, but then she did get through Kelly's gunshot induced-amnesia on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 circa Season 8 (Or was it 9?).
Primetime Spoiler Round-Up!
GREEK… I’m just crazy about these kids at Cyprus Rhodes. They’ve been picked up for a third season but their friends at Kyle XY got the AX. GREEK returns with the second half of the second season on March 30th with Max! Casey’s boyfriend has ditched grad school in favor of sticking in Ohio with Casey. Will he constantly remind his girlfriend what he’s given up for her? The craziest GREEK news comes from an exclusive on EW.com courtesy of Mr. Michael Ausiello. Apparently the third season will be light one cast member. Frannie, the rogue ZBZ, will not be a series regular. She’s in a pretty major storyline as the season finale cliffhanger was Frannie setting up a new sorority and taking a bunch of ZBZ’s with her. With Frannie leaving campus, what does that mean for Evan? Will we get a Casey-Evan reunion? What about Casey and Cappie? Will they ever get back together? SPOILERS say Casey and Cappie spend time together when Max is away. All MY Children fans, well Jesse McCartney fans, remember the heartthrob is also slated to appear this season on GREEK.
I’m adding a new show to the Round-Up. Army Wives is a great show on Lifetime from the same folks that gave us Grey’s Anatomy. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. They are adding two new African American cast members to the upcoming season and Roger Newcomb at We Love Soaps says one role MAY be what Real Andrews (ex-Taggart, General Hospital) auditioned for.
