Donna Martin Hallucinates
So you may have heard that the CW is considering a 90210 spin-off that would revolve around the next generation (or, considering the ages of the actors on the original show, the next next generation) of rich Beverly Hills teens. (BTW, please note the plethora of Mom Jeans in the photo in that link. I've been staring at it in horror/awe for at least 15 minutes. Oh, and while we're on this subject? Gap has some serious explaining to do.)
I am intrigued by the involvement in this supposedly real project of the dude who was in charge of Veronica Mars, because I heard that was a good show. And I can rarely resist a cheesy teen drama. However, this also promises to be yet another in a line of said shows that feature guys I used to lust over when I was a teenager as the father of one of the main characters, and this time it might drive me right over the edge. I am only barely hanging on after Paul Johansson on One Tree Hill. Not that I watch One Tree Hill. (OMG, bringing us right back on topic, 90210 originated my crush on Paul Johansson. Even though his character was an asshole. And maybe a date-rapist? I don't remember. Whatever, don't judge.)
But more importantly, and a concern that should be slightly more widespread than the latest threat to my vanity: 90210 kind of sucked. You know it's true. We loved it, but objectively speaking it's a terrible show! And without the kids being my same age, and pining away after Kelly Taylor's wardrobe (I told you not to judge, bitches), I don't know that I'll be able to overlook the flaws this time. So for those of you who emailed us your similar concerns, I must agree that this is a truly WTF?! proposition that is still, somehow, oddly promising.
However, I haven't even gotten to the most WTF aspect of it yet! You won't believe it! When asked about her opinion on the possible spin-off, Tori Spelling opined:
Tori: They should give me a call. Every teen drama needs a MILF, right?
TORI SPELLING CALLED HERSELF A MILF. I need to go to a happy place. I need to go to a happy place. I need to go to a happy place. The "F" in that acronym stands for something else. Fight? Forget? Fingerprint? Flee? Flog? Fumigate?
