What would a 90210 update be without a Spelling involved? Victoria "Tori" Spelling will indeed reprise her signature role as television's latest bloomer Donna Martin Silver for The CW's re-imagining of the 90's teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210 next fall.
Spelling's Donna now owns the coolest shop in Beverly Hills, which will no doubt be frequented by the new crop of adolescent sexaholics. No word yet on whether Donna's series-ending marriage to David Silver (Brian Austin Green) will be addressed.
Okay, I am glad to see originals involved in the update, but I don't want the new 90210 to become cameo-central. Garth was a smart choice as guidance counselor Kelly (lord knows the girl went through enough on the parent soap) and since Donna was a budding fashionista when we last saw her having her guest star as a trendy shopkeep makes sense, but if the next thing I read is that Steve Sanders has bought the Peach Pit After Dark and Emily Valentine's teaching Home Ec. I'm going to start getting a little worried that what could be a hot companion for Gossip GIrl might turn into an ooey, gooey, Made-for-TV cheesefest.
