It’s Thanksgiving week, and you know what I’m thankful for? My grotesquely oversized television. And thankfully, there’s lots of amazing stuff to watch this week, from the new show “Find My Family” that’ll make you cry like a baby, to the season finale of “Dancing With The Stars,” which will have you standing up and cheering—well, at least if Kelly Osbourne wins. But you know what I’m most looking forward to when it comes to the boob tube? Friday’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” marathon, “Chillin’ With Dylan,” on SoapNet. Don’t even bother calling me during the day, mkay? Keep reading »

Did you know that the zip code 90210 actually covers a section of Los Angeles, not Beverly Hills? Yeah, we didn’t either, but it turns out the actual zip codes for Beverly Hills proper are 90211 and 90212. This confuses the Los Angeles police and fire departments. The power of ’90s television nostalgia is so strong that when they’d get a call from a 90210 zip code, they’d ignore it because they thought it was the Beverly Hills department’s responsibility. Beverly Hills city councilman John Mirisch tried to make things simpler for everyone and proposed that the community switch their 90210 zip code. Residents said: “Hell no!” They voted four-to-one against it. I wonder if the protest was as big as when West Beverly’s principal said Donna Martin couldn’t walk at graduation because she was caught drinking at prom. “Donna Martin Graduates!” [LA Times] Keep reading »
We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie is the most developed character. Being saccharin sweet like Serena van der Woodsen in the first season of “Gossip Girl” or Lauren Conrad throughout the run of “The Hills” is easy. But it takes work to be conniving, cunning, and misunderstood all at once. We decided to pay homage to entertainment’s best Mean Girls after the jump. Tell us in the comments which one you identify with the most! Keep reading »
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the new 90210 is going to rip off certain aspects of story lines from the old Beverly Hills, 90210. On last night’s episode there were two such instances that were straight up nods to the old Nine-Oh. Read on… Keep reading »
Last night was the premiere of the remake of the greatest teen drama ever made — 90210. Catherine and I immediately started IMing about our impressions the second we got into The Frisky offices this morning — our convo is after the jump, but check out a clip of the show above if you were crazy enough to miss it.

I have one question about the new cast of 90210, which includes Shenae Grimes, AnnaLynne McCord, and Jessica Stroup — where is the Andrea Zuckerman? Who is the school nerd? [CW Network premiere party, Malibu, CA, 8/24/08] Keep reading »
Pant, pant, pant. Brenda! Kelly! Drama! 90210! ZOMG! Keep reading »
This year is definitely looking up for Beverly Hills, 90210 fans. First, The CW network is bringing back the famous zip code with new drama and characters, but some of our old favorites are set to make cameos as well. And then, to our delight, Apple has released a limited edition iPod Nano 8GB that has custom laser etching with official Beverly Hills, 90210 artwork and each iPod in this 2,000 limited edition series is numbered. You can personalize it with your name or some other self-expression. We can’t think of a better way to catch up on Beverly Hills, 90210 and the new 90210 when it starts September 2.

90210 Nail Polish: The Best Thing To Happen To Your Manicure Since The Invention Of Cuticle Clippers
I might have just had a heart attack. According to Nylon, nail polish brand OPI is planning to launch a limited edition collection of colors inspired by the original 90210 cast members. Hold the &%$#ing phone. This is the awesomest thing I’ve heard since they confirmed Brenda was going to be on the spin-off. My brain is already spinning with ideas for shades!
Virgin/Whore A lovely opalescent pink shade which represents Donna Martin’s purity (well, until she gave it up to David) and her reputation for having the trampiest wardrobe on primetime during the ’90s.
Judgey Wudgey White Stark white for Kelly’s uppity “I’m such an angel” attitude — a perfect match for her cocaine addiction from season five.
Pouty & Pissed A greyish blue for Miss Moody herself, Brenda Walsh.
Euphoria Black Emily Valentine probably totally rocked gothic black nail polish the night she got Brandon to take “euphoria”. Keep reading »
Be still my beating heart! TV’s hottest bitch ever, Shannen Doherty, is in talks to be in the CW’s Beverly Hills 90210 spin-off playing everyone’s favorite Walsh, Brenda. The thought that the Kelly/Brenda fued might continue into their thirties, thrills my soul to its very core. And for the record, brunettes rule, blondes DROOL. [DListed] Keep reading »
