When we were 12, and had huge crushes on Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth, this storyline would have been awesome.

Now, we're (a tiny bit) more mature and simply roll our eyes at the planned lesbian storyline coming to 90210.

Indeed, show producer Rebecca Sinclair confirms that Rumer Willis' lesbian character of Gia will get a girlfriend in early 2010... in the form of previously straight Adrianna!

In the past, the strategy of turning a series regular gay for a few episodes was a clear publicity stunt, as fans of The OC and Mischa Barton likely recall.

But the ratings for 90210 have surged this season. Says Sinclair of the plot:

“This isn’t a fling. We’re coming at this [relationship] from a genuine place and not going, ‘Let’s do a titillating story that will grab some promotion.’ This is a real aspect of teenager life that’s interesting... And there’s been a real void in the 90210 universe in terms of gay and bisexual characters.”

That will actually start to change this Tuesday night when Samantha Ronson guest stars.

What do you think of this storyline?

Thursday night is shaping up to be quite the TV night.

This isn't a new concept, but with two of the hottest new shows on this evening in addition to the return of a perennial Top 10 drama, it's more true than ever.

At 8 p.m., the CW airs Vampire Diaries, while FlashForward premieres on ABC (and from the looks of the FlashFoward spoilers we've seen so far, it looks great).

Then at 9 p.m., Grey's Anatomy returns for its sixth season. One that its producers and cast say will be unlike any other we've experienced in its long history.

As a teaser for the premiere, the network has leaked the first five minutes of this two-hour Grey's event. Needless to say, we're in for a gripping evening.

This just in: Ashlee Simpson is not sexy.

Chalk it up to the plastic face; the overbearing father; the annoying sister; the tool of a husband; or, likely, all of the above.

But if the new Melrose Place is looking for an actress to stare seductively into the camera as part of its promotional campaign, allow us to suggest star Katie Cassidy. She's hot - and, unlike Ashlee, she's actually an actress.

The following photo, courtesy of TV Guide Magazine, demonstrates Simpson's utter lack of sex appeal:

Conversely, the stars of The Vampire Diaries know how to do dark and sexy. Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder may have taken their cues from the cast of the Twilight Saga, but that doesn't make them any less desirable.

If you're a fan of that film franchise, you've gotta tune in to this new CW show. It premieres on September 10.

Finally, in its fall television preview, TV Guide Magazine recommends Community, Eastwick and FlashForward. The strongest appeal of each these shows? None of them stars Ashlee Simpson.

She knows how to date football players and she knows how to deal with sex rumors.

Therefore, Kim Kardashian apparently makes the ideal sitcom guest star, as she'll appear in an October episode of Brothers in a role she has perfected: herself.

The new series stars former NFL star Michael Strahan, along with Daryl "Chill" Mitchell, CCH Pounder and Carl Weathers.

In the Kim-centric episode, the reality star confronts former football player Michael Trainor (Strahan) regarding rumors that the pair has enjoyed a secret tryst.

This, of course, is foreign territory for Kardashian: her sexual trysts are never secret!

Of course Evan Rachel Wood has been cast on True Blood.

The actress dated Marilyn Manson for over two years, making her uniquely qualified to hang out on a series that's focused on vampires and other unusual creatures.

Wood will premiere on True Blood on August 30. She will be taking on the role of Queen Sophie-Ann, who is described by show creator Alan Ball as someone “nobody’s ever entirely happy to see. She’s very powerful, capricious and most likely insane.”

Here are a pair of photos from Wood's debut episode:

Is it too late to rename the series Pretty Betty?

As filming for ABC's Ugly Betty gets underway, the show has given its main character a serious makeover.

Played by America Ferrera, Betty Suarez has said goodbye to her braces and sayonara to her messy, curly hair.

In April, producer Silvio Horta warned fans about the impending new look. He said: “There’s going to be a progression in her look overall. It’ll still be Betty, but you’ll see some growth in that direction.”

That's for sure. Compare the before-and-after shots below:

Shenae Grimes is rarely excited for a full meal.

But the incredibly thin actress told People over the weekend that she can't wait for season two of 90210; specifically, she's psyched for a certain guest star to appear.

“Rumer Willis is joining us for a little while. I’m not sure for how long, but we are very excited,” Grimes said, adding that her character might start the fall season as an outcast:

“That’s kind of a big twist this year. I’ll start out on a different foot then I did last year. I’m not part of the gang for a little while and you’ll see why."

Willis, meanwhile, has been booked as Gia, a lesbian student at West Beverly. 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord wants to make out with her on screen.

90210 came back with a bang - and a blow job - last night!

While oral sex in the West Beverly parking lot was a change from the original, Mel Silver not being able to keep it in his pants is as old as Dylan McKay's sideburns. It was nice to know some things never change.

While the concept of remaking Beverly Hills 90210 never ceases to amuse us -- didn't The OC and Gossip Girl already do this? -- there's little doubt we'll be tuning in.

For those that are unsure about revisiting the zip code that made Luke Perry and Tori Spelling household names, however, we present three reasons to watch this Tuesday's series premiere:

  1. Shenae Grimes
  2. Jessica Stroup
  3. Oral Sex

Here's a look at the first two reasons, as Grimes and McCord - who portrays Annie Wilson and Naomi Clark, respectively - posed for pictures at the 90210 premiere party last week:

As for the third reason listed above, no, Antonella Barba isn't guest starring on 90210.

But Shannen Doherty was recently asked by Entertainment Weekly how the new show differs from the original. She said the goal of The CW was to present realistic teenage behavior, which has changed dramatically from the era of Brenda Walsh saving herself for Dylan McKay at the spring fling.

"All I know is there’s a girl giving a guy a blow job in the first episode,” Doherty said.

In other words: if Aaron Spelling wasn't already rolling over in his grave from Dean and Tori: Inn Love, the original series creator is doing somersaults down there now.

Indeed, Kelly Taylor and Brenda Walsh are returning to the zip code they called home for so many years...
