More Moments from The CW Upfronts

90210 spinoff cast

Da da da da…da da da da….snap snap! If you were in the musical in my mind right now you would be hearing that as the iconic theme song to Beverly Hills 90210. It’s also the very song that stopped the hustle and bustle of the crowd at last night’s CW Upfront party in NYC and made everyone take notice. Yes, 90210 is back and it’s causing some excitement. But that wasn’t the only reason people were buzzing at last night’s party.I’ve already given you the scoop on meeting the cast of GOSSIP GIRL, but here are a few other highlights from last night’s CW party.

  • Inside the party were screens showing us a live feed of the red green carpet arrivals.  Jennie Garth appeared on screen and the place was buzzing.   Think about it?  The majority of people in these parties are in their late 20’s to late 30’s.  And she is Kellie Taylor. Icon form our teens…and still looking fierce.
  • The presentation part of the night was kicked off with a mini-set from Maroon 5.  I was geeking out.  I love me some Adam Levine. I thought the guys sounded great.  If nothing else, The CW is pretty damn cool.
  • While watching Maroon 5 we were standing right next to the cast of the all new 90210.  As mentioned, Jennie Garth is looking hot, hot, hot.  As is Aunt Becky…yep Lori Loughlin is on the show too.  Keeping up the tradition of the original BH, the “kids” clearly aren’t teens.  I didn’t see any 30 year old Andrea Zuckermans in the group, but there is no way these people look like typical teenagers.  But they’re pretty…the guys and the girls and I guess that’s what’ really matter.

  • Ladies from AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL were sitting pretty themselves next to the 90210ers.  Talk about tall.  Glamazons for sure.  I only saw Tyra for a few minutes and as expected she was vamping it up for the cameras and dancing along to Maroon 5.  She’s a busy woman these days and I was kind of surprised to see her at the event.
  • It was a little hard to hear the new show presentations what with all the chatting and boozing (and not just by me), but despite it’s horrible title, I was kind of digging what I saw of SURVIVING THE FILTHY RICH.  It’s so right in The CW’s wheelhouse and it got my attention (at least from what I could see of it).
  • GOSSIP GIRL got some big whoops from the audience, but nothing like the reception that 90210 got when the original theme music started.  Jennie Garth garnered the most applause of the night.  And you know who came in a close second in the applause-o-meter? Jessica Walter.  Walter is best known for her portrayal of Bluth matriarch Lucille Bluth on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.  That was kind of a kick ass moment.  And with that I think we should have a moment of silence in honor of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

All and all, not a bad way to spend the evening.  I’m actually excited about The CW next year.  I’ve been all over the place when it’s comes to my excitement about the new 90210, but after last night I’m back on board.

    OMG…how could I forget. Yes, there were some OTHers there. We got to talk to Lee (Mouth) and Hilarie (Peyton), who by the way is easily the thinnest woman I have EVER seen in person. No lie. He waist is so tiny. I have friends that are a size zero and she wasn’t even that.

    I love Jessica Walter, but I don’t know how I feel about her playing someone like Lucille without the rest of the Bluths. :-/
