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 »
Earlier this week, Jason Priestley and Luke Perry—aka Brandon Walsh and Dylan McKay of “Beverly Hills, 90210“—sat down with George Lopez. The two have teamed up for the first time in years for a Hallmark Movie Channel flick called “Goodnight for Justice,” in which Luke stars and Jason directs. But of course the two had to talk about life in America’s most famous zip code. “Back then, it wasn’t about poking people on Facebook,” said Jason. “You just had to poke them for real,” replies Luke.

When I saw the dress Jennifer Love Hewitt chose for this past weekend’s Art of Elysium event in Hollywood, I felt an overwhelming sense of familiarity. What does this atrocious gown remind me of? And then it hit me — it’s like a modern version of the dress both Kelly and Brenda wore (scandal!) to the spring formal on “Beverly Hills, 90210″! I love that my favorite TV show of all time — which I still watch in reruns on Soap Net every single day — continues to have a lasting impact on the world. Keep reading »
