Let’s be real, Lifetime’s Unauthorized Stories for the most part are really bad. Strangely enough, they finally got one right. The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story is pretty entertaining, so you should check it out at 8p tonight.
The telemovie starts out with the network pitching the show to Aaron Spelling (Dan Castellaneta) and him saying no. That is until his daughter Tori (Abby Ross) convinces him to do it. Now it is time to cast to lead roles, and Tori again helps him with that when she suggests he hires Shannen Doherty (Samantha Munro) and Jason Priestley (Max Lloyd-Jones ). Tori auditions for Kelly, but the network wants Jennie Garth (Abbie Cobb), so she gets Donna. Somehow Ian Ziering (David Lennon), Gabrielle Carteris (Michele Goyns) and Brian Austin Green (Ross Linton) are also cast on the show.
Now it is time to the shoot the pilot and they share the studio with porn stars. Did you know that? After the pilot is shot and they watch it, they think the show will never get picked up. As we know it did, but initially it bombed.
Darren Star (Adam Korson) and Aaron think the show is missing something and that something is Luke Perry (Jesy McKinney). But even he couldn’t save the show from poor ratings. That is until something happens that helps it become the hit that became. What, you will have to tune in to find out.
After the show is a hit, it is the I hate Shannen show. The movie ends with her firing and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen’s (Alyssa Lynch) hiring. Lynch also played her in Lifetime’s Saved By the Bell movie.
Even though the telemovie only covers the first four seasons, it is just enough. I don’t know how to explain how they got it right, but when you see it, you will see how they did.
I mean, the only actors who look like the people they are playing are Munro and Cobb, but you quickly forget that because the story is interesting enough to keep you entertained.
Tori Spelling recently was strapped down to a lie detector, asked a bunch of questions and this Saturday we will get the results on Lifetime. One of the questions they asked her, is did she sleep with any of her Beverly Hills. 90210 co-stars. She admitted that she did and it was Brian Austin Green.
She revealed that as soon as they met, she felt a connection with him but she wasn’t sure he felt the same way. That’s because he used to come up to her and pull on her peach fuzz and call her, “My Chewbacca.” Well they went from that to making Wookie, I mean Whoopie.
She also revealed that she slept with another co-star, but we will have to tune in to find out who. Who do you think it is?
Back in the ’80s, all the boys wanted to date Molly Ringwald and all the girls wanted to be her. In the ’90s, all the girls wanted to date Jason Preistley and the boys wanted to be him. In 2015, the two of them look they found each other, so do they have something to tell us? Yes, they do. They are starring as a husband and wife in Canada’s Family Channel’s new sitcom The Wonderful Wayneys. If this picture is any indication how good the show is going to be, I can’t wait to see it.
Yesterday, I posted the cast photo for Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story, and I thought that casting was the worst. That casting was spot as compared to the job that Lifetime did for The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story.
I mean, at least with 90210, you knew who they were by their hair color. When it comes to the Melrose Place one that didn’t even work. I mean the actresses playing Heather Locklear, Daphne Zuniga, Josie Bisset and Marcia Cross look nothing at all like them, in fact they look worse than the originals. When it comes to Grant Show, he should be thanking them for casting someone that makes him look like a male model. Finally, the rest of them are just average, not horrendous and not spectacular, but just there.
I hope the movie that airs on October 10th is better than the casting; but let’s be real, it won’t be.
Are able to guess who’s who in that cast photo? To see if you guessed right, then click here!
Watch with Kristin got their hands on the first cast picture from The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story and the promotional photo gets an F-. I mean it is like Lifetime doesn’t even care about casting these Unauthorized movies any more. They will just cast anyone in the part as long as they have the same hair color. On a positive note, the actress playing Jennie Garth looks like her. On a negative note, none of the actors look like the people they are playing. Who is that guy supposed to be behind Gabrielle Carteris? I am assuming that Andrea because of the glasses. Seriously, can the casting be any worse?
BTW we have until October 3rd to come up with a drinking game for this movie, so if you have one let me know.
AnnaLynne McCord shared a Selfie of herself modeling black lingerie from Victoria’s Secret, and she has the boys going 9021-OhOhOhOh. How come she is not one of their Angels because she is hotter than the ones that they have.
Ever wonder what AnnaLynne McCord looks like when she just gets up in the morning, well now you know. Even without any makeup on and barely awake, she still looks flawless. I am so jealous of her because when I wake up I look like I’ve been run over my a truck.
Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth have worked together on both versions of Beverly Hills, 90210, and now they are going from a teen drama to a comedy on ABC Family. Donna and Kelly will be starring in Mystery Girls later this year. They will be playing two ’90s actresses who starred on the detective show, Mystery Girls, thus the name of the sitcom. Now two decades later, they have gone their separate ways. Charlie Contour (Garth) is a mother living in the suburbs and Holly Hamilton (Spelling) misses the fame she once had. When a fan of the their old show witnesses a crime, he insists on only talking to them. So now the two actress must reunite for a real case and we will see what happens after they are reunited and it feels so good.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious about this show, and I am sure I am not the only one.
BTW if I were Shannen Doherty, I’d be pissed if they didn’t ask me to be part of the show in some way. In fact, they better ask everyone from the old gang to be on the show.
Jennie Garth debuted her new boyfriend Michael Shimbo over the weekend and he looks nothing like her ex-husband. I am not saying the internet executive of Concert TV is not a good catch, but I wouldn’t want to ride off into Twilight with him the same way I would with the Peter Facinelli.
What do you think of the Beverly Hills, 90210’s new guy?
