Sharknado 2 (official sequel title Sharknado 2: The Second One) is coming this July, and original stars Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will both be partaking.

Paul Bales, from the company behind Sharknado, said of their returns: "We're thrilled to be able to bring back the talent that made Sharknado a hit."

Can lightning strike twice for the surprise SyFy hit?

"I don't know, but it's a scientific fact that you're more likely to be killed by lightning than by a shark. This film will have lightning and sharks, so that's got to count for something."

Nicely played.

SyFy's executive producer Thomas Vitale called Sharknado an "extraordinary 'perfect storm' which captured the attention of movie fans across the globe."

Steve Sanders lives!

Over the weekend, former Beverly Hills 90210 actor and Dancing with the Stars contestant Ian Ziering took to a very different kind of stage:

He debuted as a Chippendales dancer at the iconic male revue in Las Vegas.

The 49-year-old, who shed 25 pounds for the sexy gig, will be a guest host Thursdays through Sundays through June 30 at the Rio.

Ogle the above photos of him now on the red carpet and decide: Did Kelly Taylor make the wrong choice? Would you sleep with Ian Ziering?

Ian Ziering will soon be a father once again.

Already a dad to 18-month Mia Loren, the former Beverly Hills 90210 star and his wife Erin have announced to People that a new bundle is on the way.

“I feel blessed, having a family is something that I’ve always wanted,” Ziering says. “Having a second child is the realization of a dream come true.”

Ziering married Erin Ludwig in May 2010. She is in her second trimester and the child is due in May.

We send our very best wishes to the expanding family!

Ian Ziering is officially spoken for! Again!

The former Beverly Hills: 90210 star married love Erin Ludwig at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, Calif. on Friday, just as the sun was starting to set.

The couple exchanged vows on a gazebo overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Celebrating with the couple were several 90210 alumni and significant others:

  • Jason Priestley and his wife Naomi
  • Jennie Garth and her husband, Eclipse star Peter Facinielli
  • Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox, who were said to be  "very affectionate" during the bash, according to reliable observers quoted by Us.

Congratulations to Ian Ziering and Erin Ludwig!

The pair spent their first married night together at a villa on the Pelican Hill property. Their next door neighbors for the night? Jessica Alba and Cash Warren on one side, Britney Spears and Jason Trawick on the other.

Wonder if Jamie Spears had an adjoining room too. Kidding!

Ziering announced his engagement to Erin Ludwig in February of this year. A romantic photo of the actor sharing a champagne toast with Ludwig (who wears an engagement ring) is captioned, "So in love with my love am I." What a romantic.

The star split from first wife Nikki in 2002 after five years.

Original Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering is ready to tie the knot a second time. He's engaged to his girlfriend of just four months, Erin Kristine Ludwig!

Steve Sanders slyly changed his Facebook status from "in a relationship" to "engaged" last week. Thought you could fly under the radar? Think again Ian!

Ian Ziering Lives!

Ziering followed up the low-key announcement by relaying some of the finer points of his courtship, identifying the lucky lady as Erin Ludwig. She's cute!

Here's a photo of the soon-to-be-married pair:

"She's a nurse, we're planning a spring wedding and we've been together since Labor Day '09," he said, and while that's a fast courtship, sometimes you just know.

Especially when you're Ian Ziering. How many more shots do you have?

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Last night's Hollywood premiere of This Is It, the much-touted documentary of Michael Jackson's final rehearsals, attracted celebrities from A-to-D-list.

Ian Ziering was also able to make it.

Who knew he was still alive? Considering he was like 35 when he starred on the first 90210, he must be like 50 now. And looks great! Note: Ian is 45.

Also on hand was Larry Birkhead. We can't remember the last time we saw him outside of a courtroom or OK! photo shoot he most likely got paid for!

Which of these two studs looked better at the premiere last night? Just vote in our survey below and decide who wins our latest style showdown ...

Who looked better, Ian Ziering or Larry Birkhead?

You can't blame Ian Ziering for wanting to make some celebrity gossip headlines right now.

Just look at his former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-stars:

Ian Ziering Lives!
  • Jason Priestly just welcomed a child into his family.
  • Tori Spelling sucks, but is at least in the news a lot.
  • And, well, Brian Austin Green, has seen Megan Fox nude.

So it makes sense that Ziering really wanted the job of hosting The Price is Right. How else could he compete with those former cast mates?

"I guess I was a little disappointed," Ziering told People magazine at Tuesday's The Simpsons Movie premiere in Westwood, Calif. "I was really kind of hoping that would happen.

On Monday, though, unfunny comedian Drew Carey was named new host of the long-running game show, now that its iconic emcee, Bob Barker, has retired. (Among those also under consideration, besides Carey and Ziering, were Rosie O'Donnell, Mark Steines and Mario Lopez.)

"Unfortunately, it didn't go my way," said Ziering. "But they got a great host in Drew Carey. I've always been a big fan of his. I think he's going to do great."

That's funny, Ian. No one is actually a big fan of Drew Carey. That's like saying you think Lindsay Lohan is a role model for today's youth.

"I'm in a great space right now," Ziering reassured his followers. "I feel good. Everything is going in the right direction. ... That's one thing about this business, that there are so many mediums to perform in. I'm not really too bummed, because something else usually turns up."

That's true. Ian could always follows in the porn-like footsteps of David Hans Schmidt and distribute the Kate Moss sex tape. Just an idea.

We thank TVSquad.com for providing us with the following report. Now, let's get right to the opening night of this season's Dancing with the Stars ...

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke Photo

Ian Ziering and Cheryl Burke (Cha Cha Cha) - It's tough to be the first dancers of the night, but Ian and Cheryl did a tremendous job. Their energetic performance included some decent footwork. Cheryl's hair was gorgeous, as usual, but I wasn't a fan of the Ziering facial hair. The judges gave Ian some technical criticism, but the pair walked away with a fair score of 21 (Carrie: 7, Len: 7, Bruno: 7).

Paulina Porizkova and Alec Mazo (Foxtrot) - Paulina immediately won sympathy after her partner said that his father had a lot of her pinup photos. Harsh. The former supermodel was worried about looking like Bullwinkle on the dance floor, but she was graceful and lovely. Her choice of dress and hair only emphasized the sophistication of the performance. The judges' opinions differed a bit, unfortunately, and the couple received a 19 (6, 6, 7).

Billy Ray Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff (Cha Cha Cha) - Expected a lot from Billy Ray, and his mullet-themed performance was a big disappointment. Was hoping that Karina's wigs would not show up for a few weeks, but her hair malfunction caused one of the biggest snafus of the night. Billy Ray is very charming, but I had no idea what he was going for out there. The couple's mess of a performance deserved their score of 13 (5, 4, 4).

Leeza Gibbons and Tony Dovolani (Foxtrot) - After making such a big deal of her age, was surprised that Leeza picked a costume that exposed so much of her back. Her behind-the-scenes power struggle with Tony was amusing, however. Their performance seemed stiff; Leeza is not as limber as her younger competitors. She does have great presence, though, and hopefully she can use her work ethic to her advantage. Score: 15 (5, 5, 5).

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (Cha Cha Cha) - There's no way that this guy is an underdog. He has more dance experience than any other contestant, and it showed. Joey and Kym's performance was crowd-pleasing and the most technically proficient of the evening. They won everyone over and earned an impressive 24 points (8, 8, 8).

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Foxtrot) - With her boxer's physique, Laila manages to be gorgeous and intimidating at the same time. Expected her strong figure to be her downfall, but it ended up being an advantage. Would not have guessed that any couple could generate more heat than Maksim and Willa Ford from last season, but these two are seriously sexy together. Their intense, competitive personalities came through on the dance floor, and the judges rewarded them with a 23 (7, 8, 8).

John Ratzenberger and Edyta Sliwinska (Cha Cha Cha) - John deserves some major points for coming in as a last-minute replacement and doing a presentable job with his dance. The actor was dignified and enthusiastic, and his performance was better than the judges had expected. As usual, Edyta opted for as little clothing as possible, dancing in what can only be called a bikini dress. Luckily, John avoided looking like a dirty old man and received a respectable 17 for his efforts (6, 5, 6).

Shandi Finnessey and Brian Fortuna (Foxtrot) - Bruno compared this couple to Ken and Barbie. Both dancers were impressed with one another's cuteness, and their performance was about as passionate as two dolls moving across the dance floor. Shandi has height on her side, however, and could go far if she shows more emotion in her performances. The couple earned a bland 19 (6, 6, 7).

Clyde Drexler and Elena Grinenko (Cha Cha Cha) - Waited all night for someone to incorporate Clyde Drexler's nickname into the show, and it finally happened in Hour Two. The former athlete did do some gliding; he is certainly a crowd favorite. He seems a bit uncomfortable with his height on the dance floor, though, and his performance was too safe. Score: 18 (6, 6, 6).

Heather Mills and Jonathan Roberts (Foxtrot) - All of the build-up surrounding Mills' disability was pretty distracting. Found it difficult to watch her performance without anticipating some sort of major stumble. It turned out that the only tragic mishap during Heather and Jonathan's dance involved Heather's yellow-and-pink monstrosity of a dress. Yikes. Was she sponsored by a banana company? Her foxtrot was pretty tame, but she seemed to enjoy herself. Heather got no special treatment from the judges, who gave her performance an 18 (6, 6, 6).

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Cha Cha Cha) - Shandi and Brian may not be the cutest couple after all. Apolo's energy and athleticism were infectious during his cha cha, and his partner Julianne is totally adorable. The pair gave an entertaining, playful performance, but the crowd seemed a little quiet at first. The judges gave them some technical advice, and seemed to love their energy. Score: 21 (7, 7, 7).
