Exclusive: No Mo' '90210' For Jennie Garth?!

Remember that story I ran about Jennie Garth agreeing to extend her stay in the zip code that made her famous? You know, the one that was later confirmed by both The CW and producer Paramount? Here’s how good I am — I wrote it before it was even official! So the erstwhile Kelly Taylor told me herself at last night’s EW pre-Emmy soiree.

“I was signed on to do four [episodes], I ended up doing six, and I guess it broke that I was doing more,” she said.

“But nothing’s confirmed at this point,” she added. “It’s still totally up in the air.”

Natch, I also got the Dancing With the Stars hoofer to weigh in on the controversy surrounding 90210‘s stick-figure starlets (covered at length in this week’s EW).”I wish they’d stop saying that about me!” she joked. “Why can’t I get that [criticism]!”

All kidding aside, the mother of three said, “It’s not my place [to address that issue]. I’m not a producer on the show. I just go in and do my thing and leave. I obviously care about the girls, but they seem healthy and happy, and they love what they’re doing.

“If it would make it better,” she continued, “I will certainly make some cookies and take them to [the girls].”

Finally, with Doherty finished in Bev Hills (her final episode airs this week), Garth had some very interesting things to say about her former rival. For more on that, check out my entire video interview with Garth below. And keep checking EW’s Emmy video hub for the rest of my interviews from last night, including one-on-ones with Kate Walsh, Lost‘s Emily de Ravin, Kathy Griffin, Lisa Edelstein, Jon Hamm, Zach Levi, and more.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go press my monkey suit for this evening’s main event!

    I thought Shannen was signed on for 4. Isn’t this week only her third? Even so, if Jennie leaves then I think I’m done with the show. I’ve tried to get into it, but the new kids’ stories are all so boring. The only thing keeping me interested are the old characters.

  • Crystal

    I rather see more episodes with Shannen than Jennie.

  • Sonya

    Those girls look healthy?? Seriously?

  • Jac

    No Jennie, no watchie for me. The new kids can’t act. Get your own show, Jennie! You’re too good for the CW.

  • Beth

    This week does make 4 episodes for Shannen. The first week two episodes aired back to back.

  • Wonder Boy

    Is it just me, or did Jennie sound a little, erm, sloshed? :)
    I really wish they’d bring back Shannen and Jennie for more episodes. That…really was why I tuned into the show in the first place.

  • PS

    Are there transcripts somewhere of your video for people that don’t hear so well?

  • Kristen

    I will be sad to see Shannen go, she always was my favorite. Especially what with the Dylan baby daddy storyline! Ugh! Hated that!
    I do love Jennie though, so I don’t mind her sticking around.
    Also, I really like the Annie/Ethan/Ty triangle … well kinda, but then you throw Naomi in there. It’s like a joint triangle … you have Annie/Ethan/Ty, and Naomi/Annie/Ethan. Man!

  • shadester

  • Lauren

    Wonderboy – it’s not just you. I think she’s sound drunkity drunk drunk.

  • Didi

    I have to say the only reason I watched the show was because of Shannen and Jennie. I think they should have made a show starring those two instead of 90210.
