Why should Gossip Girl be the only primetime soap having a gay ‘ol time experimenting with its characters sexuality? This January, 90210 will embark on a major same-sex storyline that will pair the show’s token lesbian, Gia, played by Rumer Willis, with another major (and heretofore straight) female character.
“This isn’t a fling,” insists executive producer Rebecca Sinclair. “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.”
Yeah, yeah… let’s get the big question: Who will Demi’s daughter coax out of the closet and into her loving arms?
Nope, it’s not Naomi — it’s teenage mom Adrianna!
For more scoop on this story, including surprising details on how the romance unfolds and an exclusive interview with Adrianna’s portrayer, Jessica Lowndes, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on sale tomorrow).
