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]

Did you watch the Ian Ziering-helmed SyFy ridiculousness that is “SharkNado” last night? Because I did! And it was … amazing! And … informative! And I think I might be ready to pursue a career as a meteoranimalogist (that’s the guy who predicts the next and latest combo-predatory animal/extreme weather). For anybody who for some stupid reason missed “SharkNado,” here’s what it’s about: The oceans flood, biblical-style, off the cost of Santa Monica, and the sharks are pissed! At the same time, a triple tornado strikes the city of Los Angeles. This creates a literal perfect storm of extreme weather and shark attacks. The movie stars Tara Reid, Ian Ziering and John Heard (who, OMG, what happened to you, dad from “Home Alone”?). It is predictably terrible, but I learned many things, like… Keep reading »
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]
Whoa—the casting news just won’t stop this week. The Hollywood Reporter has brought us some new details about the movie “I Hate You Dad” which will star Adam Sandler as a father who moves in with his son, Andy Samberg, and quickly begins to feud with his fiancee, Leighton Meester. Oh, but the casting choices only get more exciting from there. Our favorite mother/daughter duo—Eva Amurri and Susan Sarandon—will also be in this flick, with Susan playing a sexy older teacher who seduced Adam Sandler’s character when he was younger. She may or may not be Andy Samberg’s mama.
But—wait, it gets even better. Keep reading »
“About six or seven months ago, I had my entire cast together. I wanted to put together a reunion special to run on this day and the CW dropped the ball.”
—Ian Ziering tells us what could have been on yesterday’s once-in-a-lifetime date, 09/02/10. Sigh. Oh, well. At least we did some good “Beverly Hills, 90210” reminiscing? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
