AnnaLynne McCord of 90210 has just dyed her hair a dark brown chestnut shade. The gal who we typically see as a bleach blonde has played with lowlights from time to time, but the most we've ever really seen her hair change is when she styles it super straight or ultracurly. What do you think of this deep, dark dye on AnnaLynne?
The CW held its upfronts in NYC today, and the network announced it's adding six shows to its Fall lineup with stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel Bilson. The programs include SMG's Ringer, which will air Tuesdays with 90210. Rachel, who shared a hug with costar Jaime King, was all smiles due to the success of her latest Josh Schwartz endeavor, Hart of Dixie. She shuttled between LA and North Carolina to shoot the pilot earlier this year and has lately kept the frequent flying miles coming between jaunts to France to work with Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld. The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley were all in attendance to receive the news that their popular vampire series has been renewed. 90210 castmates AnnaLynne McCord, Shenae Grimes, and Tristan Wilds were in for similar celebrations. Another of the CW's hits, Gossip Girl, wrapped up this week with a dramatic season finale, though only newcomer Kaylee DeFer was on hand for this morning's press event.
Annalynne McCord was covered in blue paint yesterday, dressed up as a character from Avatar. She got the giggles as she shot the 90210 scene while filming in Brentwood, CA. Wearing a crop top and short skirt in the same colour as the body paint, she also had a tail to contend with as she shot a kissing scene with a costar — far from the glamour of the People's Choice Awards red carpet, which she dressed up for last weekend.
They partied separately over the Halloween weekend, with AnnaLynne at Veuve Clicquot's Yelloween at LAVO in Las Vegas and Kellan at the Borgata in Atlantic City. It is reported that AnnaLynne was holding hands with model Aaron O'Connell.
90210's AnnaLynne McCord hit Miami beach with her sister Angel earlier this week, looking hot in their bikinis! The pair looked ready to play ball, and swapped their twopieces in the sea. AnnaLynne is currently filming the third season of 90210 and has been talking about getting ready to host a gala for The Thirst Project charity in LA.

Yesterday the American TV network The CW (US home of my fave Gossip Girl) announced its Autumn schedule, and one of the shows it filled us all in on was the new Beverly Hills 90210 spinoff – 90210. Here's an edited version of the details:
90210 looks at life through the eyes of Annie Mills and her adopted brother Dixon as they start at West Beverly Hills High School. The Mills family, including dad and mom have relocated to keep an eye on grandmother Tabitha (Jessica Walter, Arrested Development), a feisty-but-faded former TV star and a charter member of the Betty Ford Clinic.
For Annie and Dixon, evertything is made worse as their dad is the new high school principal. Annie and Dixon have a close sibling relationship, which they'll need to help them cope with all their new classmates, including Naomi, a spoiled rich girl; Ethan, a popular jock; Navid, an aspiring reporter; and Silver, a rebel who produces an online video series. Even the faculty seems hip, such as smart and funny teacher Ryan Matthews and beautiful guidance counselor Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth, Beverly Hills, 90210). The Mills family has just begun to realize how much their lives are about to change.
So should the show last, and make it over to our UK shores (probably not until 2009) would you be interested in watching it? Or is it just one too many wealthy American teen drama to take? Let me know!
