This Just In: Another '90210' Alum Heads For the 'Hills'


Since Shannen, Jennie, Tori and even Nat have all agreed to appear on the new 90210, at least one more comeback seemed inevitable. Are you with me here? The show just wouldn’t have been the same without her.

No, not Gabrielle Carteris!

Um, no, not Tiffani Thiessen, either.

Or Kathleen Robertson, Vanessa Marcil or Lindsay Price.

It’s Ann Gillespie!


She played Kelly’s Mommie Dearest, Jackie Taylor, remember? She married (and divorced) David’s dad, Mel, and had a daughter, Erin, with him. Odd then that the redo’s resident vixen, whose surname and nickname is Silver, is really named Daphne, not Erin. (Update: I’ve just been informed that the character’s name was changed to Erin months ago, so ignore that bit about Daphne. All is right with the world!) Regardless, sources confirm to me semi-exclusively that Gillespie is on board for at least one episode.

So what do you think — are you looking forward to more mother/daughter showdowns between Jackie and Kelly? Or are you still holding out for a return by Carol Potter? Sound off below! (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)

    Is it too late to change Daphne to Erin? They have Erin’s sister and mother on the show and decided to create a “Silver” character, it just doesn’t make sense that she’s not Erin.

    How can you and Korbi at Zap2It both have this same info exclusively?

  • Joe

    I’ve been saying since day one the show should use Erin as the hook for the spin-off. Are you sure they haven’t changed Daphne to Erin??

    How sad is it that when I saw the name Ann Gillespie I knew instantly it was Kelly’s mother before I even read further down? I kind of suffered from a 90210-bsession. I probably should have sought medical help.

    “How can you and Korbi at Zap2It both have this same info exclusively?”
    This would fit into the scoop category not the exclusive news. Do you always read just half sentences? :)

  • Jess

    I’m definitely going to sample the new 90210.

  • JV

    Um, I read the entire article, and it has been updated to read “semi-exclusively,” but simply said “exclusively” at the time of my original posting. Perhaps you (ToJV) aren’t familiar with the journalistic concept of “exclusive” meaning “a news story at first released to or reported by only ONE source”
    It really was an innocent question as I’m sure Ausiello’s sources did lead him to believe it was an exclusive (and ditto for Korbi)… just thought he might to check with his sources about that so his journalistic integrity isn’t compromised ;)

    I guess I still don’t understand. Is Kelly’s little sister a character on the show, or what?

  • JV

    Gus, judging from the name changing to Erin, it does seem like one of the main characters will be Kelly’s half-sister, though I’m not sure if this has been officially confirmed

    without Gabrielle it won’t be the same!

  • sami roberts

    I want to see David back if Donna is popping in!! Glad they are making it Erin!! That gives a real connection to the original 90210. I loved the original and will check out the 90210, even though I may decide it’s too young for me now :-)

  • Mags

    I’m waiting with bated breath for the big Matthew Laurance announcement. Can’t have Jackie without Mel.

  • Mikey

    More mother/daughter fashion shows!

  • Kevin

    At first thought, the idea of re-creating 90’s Gold seemed like a good idea, it just keeps getting worse. Whenever I think back to the days of 90210, the very last person I would think of is Anne Gillespie. Wait, didn’t Elise Donovan guest on a few episodes as well? Maybe she should come back……what about Brandon’s crazy ex-girlfriend? If the show doesn’t include all characters, then it’s just a waste of time. I see now why they waited until Aaron Spelling was dead to bring this back- he would have NEVER authorized a half-attempt like this.


    what they should do is have them all back as parents or something of that sort and have dylan be married to brenda then kelly pops in the picture again because of Erin and the drama then begins and never ends with the famous triangle! i want copyrights to this if it actually happens people!!!
