When my boo Ian Ziering comes by The Frisky offices, I make the most of my time with him. That means in addition to coercing Ian into acting out a classic scene from “Beverly Hills, 90210,” I also made him play a little game of Nine-Oh-themed “Would You Rather?” This is probably the first time in a while that Ian has heard the name “Emily Valentine.” Afterwards, Ian and I chatted about what’s ahead for the hotly anticipated sequel to his sleeper hit “Sharknado” and discussed his work with DaddyScrubs.com as their “Daddy of the Year.” Can I just say that Ian is hands down the kindest, coolest, most genuine celeb I have ever had the privilege of spending quality time with? Platonic soulmate status. Keep reading »
If you had told me, say, 15 years ago, that I would one day meet Ian Ziering, the actor who played Steve Sanders on one of my most favorite TV shows, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and give him a brief lap dance, I would have said you were dreaming. And if you told me that I would meet him for a second time and that we would act out one of the most pivotal scenes for Steve’s character, I would have officially concluded you were crazy. But guess what? YOU’RE NOT CRAZY BECAUSE IAN ZIERING AND I TOTALLY ACTED OUT THE SCENE BETWEEN BRANDON AND STEVE AT THE SPRING DANCE, WHERE STEVE IS DRUNK AND TELLS BRANDON HE WAS ADOPTED. And a camera was there! And you can watch it above! And it was the best day ever! Eat you heart out, Jason Priestley. (And thank you, Ian, for being you. Because you are awesome.) [YouTube]

Last week, which will forever be remembered as the best week of my “90210″-loving life, Ian Ziering came by The Frisky offices, begged me for a lap dance, and then submitted himself to my “How Well Does Steve Sanders Know Steve Sanders?” quiz. The current Chippendales hunk was totally game to let me test his knowledge of his infamous character — which, no big deal, I wrote from memory — and, despite the many years it’s been since he filmed the show, he did pretty damn good. Off camera, he tested my knowledge as well. I got most of his questions right (um, who doesn’t know that the name of Brandon’s first car was Mondale?), but he managed to stump me with: “What was the name of Dylan and Toni’s cat?” (Trouble, sigh. Should have known that one!) Watch Ian take my quiz and tell us how well you did in the comments!
When Ian Ziering, aka Steve Sanders from “Beverly Hills, 90210,” asks, nay, orders you to give him a lap dance, you don’t say no. In fact, if you’re me, you don’t even hesitate and just hop down off your chair and back dat ass straight into the current guest Chippendales dancer‘s lap. Ziering stopped by The Frisky and Celebuzz offices to talk about his experience with the all-male revue in Las Vegas and I lept at the chance to interview my favorite KEG man. You guys, Ian is looking gooooooooood. And despite my “skills,” Ian only has eyes for his lovely wife Erin, who just gave birth to their second child. Over at Celebuzz, Ian explains how going shirtless and donning a bow tie for Chippendales has spiced up his already solid marriage. Check out that and the rest of my interview with Ian here!
And coming up later this week, I, a Nine-Oh superfan, give Ian my “How Well Does Steve Sanders KNOW Steve Sanders?” quiz. Until then, I’ll just be sitting here, basking in the afterglow of having had my ass smacked by a ’90s TV legend. Ian, you hold the legacy key to my heart.
I watch “Beverly Hills, 90210″ almost every day and have seen every episode at least two dozen times, and thus I feel like I am kind of an expert on Steve Sanders’ face. I mean, Ian Ziering’s face. So when I saw this photo of Ian promoting his run with Chippendale’s, I was like, “Someone call Janet Sosna for confirmation because I do not believe that’s her husband’s face!” Steve, I mean, Ian, has such refined and high cheekbones now and instead of the family flirty twinkle in his eye, he’s giving serious Blue Steel. But that nipple? That nipple has clearly spent many a summer playing volleyball at the Beverly Hills Beach Club. Phew. No confirmation needed after all. [Photo (left): Pacific Coast News]
In case you were wondering what the old “Beverly Hills, 90210″ gang is up to, Jason Priestly posted this Twitpic of his Kelly Taylor sandwich. “With my old friends at our Old Navy shoot …” he tweeted, without the slightest acknowledgement of Luke Perry’s untoward hand placement. Well, I guess Jennie Garth is single now. Those two can play cup the boob if they want to. But how awkward for Jason.
“I didn’t know who he was, since I was too young for ‘Beverly Hills 90210.’ But the First time I saw him, I got butterflies. And the first time he casually touched me? There was so much electricity.”
– Megan Fox is not afraid to point out the 13-year age difference between her and her husband, Brian Austin Green. But I just want to point out that, ahem, with “90210″ airing in reruns on SoapNet from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. every week day (not to mention Breakfast In Bed on the weekends!), there is no excuse for not being familiar with Green’s acting prowess and David Silver’s smooth moves.

From freshman year on, Donna Martin and Kelly Taylor of “Beverly Hills, 90210” called their Venice Beach apartment, with its white decks and blue awnings, home. But apparently, the abode whose exterior we saw so often wasn’t actually an apartment building—it’s a single family house. Oh, and it also isn’t in Venice Beach—it’s actually located in Hermosa Beach. Did I mention that the house is for sale and could be yours for $9 million? Come on—this is the place where Kelly brought Tara to stay after they checked out of rehab. Not to mention where Donna finally lost her virginity to David. I mean, this place deserves historical landmark status. Any takers? [People] Keep reading »
