Ziering vs. Spelling

| Filed under: TV NewsTori Spelling

Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Ian Ziering was on "Yo on E!" Monday and spent a good chunk of time talking about the planned spinoff AND he even took a jab at former castmate Tori Spelling, who recently released a tell-all book about her life and time on the cult program.

Spin off - good or bad?

“Often imitated but never duplicated. I wish them the best of luck. Certainly it’s not going to be with Brenda and Brandon and Steve and Kelly and David… That’s long gone.”

If the new show called you, would you do it?

You know what? Anything’s possible. I learned pretty recently to count myself out of anything would really be a mistake. You gotta be malleable and consider what comes along.”

Give me a percentage. What’s the likelihood that you’d be a part of it?

"I would consider it. Absolutely."

Have they reached out?

“I spoke to Jay and I spoke to Brian, and as far as I know, no one’s been contacted about that.”

Seriously what type of character could you see yourself playing? Do you have an illegitimate kid or what’s going on here?

“Didn’t David Silver have a younger sister? Maybe she’s of age.”

So you give it your endorsement? You give it two thumbs up for The CW to go along with this?

“You know what’s astonishing? Everywhere I go, not just here in CA or the US, but if I travel outside of our borders, people still relate to 90210. People love that show. It made such an impact globally that it astonishes me everywhere I go. I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have come my way because of that. Obviously, people want more!”

Was your blackberry on fire the day the news broke?

“Yeah, everybody wanted to know what was what, but I spoke to Jay and I spoke to Brian, and as far as I know, no one’s been contacted about that. I’d be shocked if they went and tried to get the old cast back together. I mean, it’s a different show. I don’t know. It remains to be seen. Certainly there are topical issues of today’s generation that can be handled in a similar way that might be just as popular as what we were doing in the 90’s. They’d have to really revamp everything. They’d have to be a whole clean slate, but like I said… often imitated, never duplicated.”

Reunion show?

“I’d like to produce a reunion show with those characters, and I’m going talk to my buddies. Hopefully we’ll own it and have it come out September 2, 2010, which will be 90210.”

On “Good Day LA” Tori Spelling said she would be willing to play a MILF on the spin off. What are your thoughts about that?

(Ian breaks into laughter) “Oh my god! Oh, hold on a second, my fake eye just fell out of my head."

So you’re not for it?

“Well, I’ve put pen to paper and have come up with some scenarios that I think would really help the show get off the ground. Want to hear them?”

Yes! Go for it!

“Rush Sanders gets together with Nat and Willie, the chef from the Peach Pit, and they throw a burger syndicate. Mrs. Teasley, the Beverly Hills High School principal, finally gets the affair she’s always wanted with David Silver when his sexless affair with Donna Martin falls apart. Kelly Taylor champions the cause of the embarrassed wife when she punches Brandon across the jaw during a live news conference just as he resigns from public office for having gay footsie sex with high priced hookers smoking a cigar. Dylan never recovers from the loss of his beautiful wife. Having done enough drugs to sedate a small village, his mind snaps forever more only speaking and rhyming couplets that can be incredibly insightful but mostly are just freakish and bizarre… while Brenda’s back…”

Yeah - what’s Brenda been up to? What was going on over across the pond when she was studying acting?

“Brenda’s back and she’s supernova hot. In her Christian Louboutin pumps, she is imbued with attitude that’s only attained through social climbing of Europe’s social elite.”

You’ve already written the first script, this is great!

“I’ve been writing this stuff forever already. Andrea Zuckerman! Oh my gosh, Andrea Zuckerman invented the social networking website called “MyFace”. She gets herself ranked in the fortune 200. She buys every child a home of everyone in school who ever made her feel bad, and she turns those homes into half way houses for wayward teens.”

What’s up with Sanders? What are you up to buddy?

“Sanders, in spite of the fact that he ‘s got more side dishes than Jerry’s Deli, Steve Sanders and Janet are doing well and he has become wildly successful with his tabloid. Even Harvey Levin is taking notes on his playbook. The small time tabloid is now a big time news celebrity source, and he still secretly lusts for the newly single Kelly Taylor.”

    I miss 90210, but Ian is right. It CANNOT be duplicated. The original was the BEST. He has some legit ideas for the tv show, though…

    why do we give two shits about ian z? how can you call yourself an actor if your whole career is based on one show? (a show where you were'nt even part of the main story half of the time, lol)

    I seriously do not know what everyone's problem with Tori is!! Grant ya she grew up spoiled and rich but you know-her father leaving her less than a million I think had really taught her to be the type of person she has become. I think she is a very beautiful woman. I always look at her and wonder what everyone's problem is about her. I see a beautiful woman with not a thing wrong about her. I wish people would just leave her along. Ian is just jealous that he isn't still in the spotlight as Tori has managed for herself to be!! Go Tori!!!

    Ian Ziering? Whatthefuckever! Steve Sanders was so unimportant on 90210 and not hot. Isn't there a suckass talent show he can go host or something?

  46. Liza says – reply to this


    46

    Tori brought it on herself when she called herself a MILF. She is so ugly that even a million dollars worth of plastic surgery couldn't make her attractive. She also can't act for shit. She used to say she auditioned under an assumed name and no one knew she was Aaron's daughter when she was cast in 90210. Give me a break! Brenda was the best character on that show. When she left the show sucked.

    I am still in love with david spade because he is oh so fucking hot! But, if there was ever a remake of my favorite show 90210 and i just happened to turn on the boob tube to see steve, david, dylan, brandon, vince, and any other hot looking white boy that i forgot to mention from that show, then i hate to say it dave, but honey, you'd be kicked to the kizurb!

    If this wash-up thinks he's any better he's delusional.
    His script ideas are hilarious, and stupid.
    The CW would not employ him for all the tea in China.

    You are such a bore,you must make yourself fall asleep.At least Tori found her own way, without the $$,did you sleep with Kelly Ripah I just woke up brain not working for spelling .Oh yeah maybe he is rolling over in his grave .It is a sad day to defend him.oh yes Iwill have to get toothpicks to keep myself awake, is your name ziering or PUTZ, I can not tell the diff

  56. What about Austin Green? says – reply to this


    56

    THe hottest kid on the show was that Austin Green (was that his name?) kid who's now with Megan Fox from Transformers.

    57

    I watch 90210 heaps too. The first season sucked but the rest were good until Brenda left the show then it became sleazy and boring. I miss the 90's sometimes not the fashion the tv shows, all the shows now are about surgeons or cops

    Its time for new tv shows, but 90210 are not the same without the original characters, and jennie garth was so annoying

    I JUST FINISHED TORI'S BOOK. SHE'S NOT THE GIRLS SHE APPEARS. SHE DOES NOT "HAVE IT ALL" AND IS CERTAINLY NOT A SPOILED RICH GIRL. SHE IS VERY VULNERABLE AND HUMBLE AND STILL HOLDS ONTO INSECURITIES THAT I THINK HER MOTHER IS LARGELY TO BLAME FOR. SHE MADE TORI FEEL INFERIOR AND LIKE AN OUTSIDER IN HER OWN FAMILY. PRETTY SAD ACTUALLY. I HOPE HER HUSBAND IS GOOD TO HER..SEEMS TO BE.

    63

    Why wont this guy go away ?? He is THE most self loving, conceeded over inflated sense of self that exists. Most of the cast from this show was to be honest. They were all VERY in love with themselves and very arrogant. I hated the show 2 seasons into it. It just sucked. "Often Immitated never duplicated??" Dude you are like 40 something… can you grow the hell up? Who talks like that as an adult? Brendan and Steve talked like that but they were HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. I just cannot stand this idiot. And, while Tori is not my favorite ANYTHING, HER FATHER made Ian Ziring a household name…. so to quote the BREAKFAST CLUB since we are being children…. SHOW DICK SOME RESPECT.

    Fucking idiot. Please dont encourage these asswipes by putting them on your page P Nasty. Just let them die in the self loving has been box.

    LOL–gotta love Ian Ziering even if his memory is a bit faulty. Kelly walked off into the sunset with Dylan at the series finale. He'd have to do have Kelly flip-flop one more time about Dylan and Brandon, ultimately settling on the less brooding but poorer choice.

    Dylan speaking in Shakespaerean couplets is priceless.

    Funny how he talks about how a "spin off 90210 show" will never be as good as the original since it's an imitation, given that he was on "Dancing With the Stars" and now is hosting a copycat show on another channel!!!! He was doing nuthin' ’til he went on "Dancing With the Stars"…and that's how he got the job…which is..lo and behold..and imitation of the original!

    87

    Ian Ziering should have Jenny Garth join him on Your Mama Don't Dance. They were both stars of 90210 and Dancing with the Stars so hosting togther would probably be really comfortable, not to mention fantastic!!!

    I actually think Ian has been doing a pretty good job re-inventing himself by appearing on reality shows like Dancing with the Stars and now hosting lifetime's new show Your Mama Don't Dance. I'm not sure what the other cast members are up to but I'm not sure if they are up to much at all.

    90210 is STILL my favorite show. Nothing is better than getting up on Saturday morning…making myself some breakfast and crawling up on the couch to watch 2 hours of Steve and the gang.

    My family laughs at me…but I find them hovering around the TV each week with me.

    Reunion, Spinoff…I am for it all!

    Thats it? Thats all he said? Hardly worth mentioning and I feel bad wasting the last five minutes reading what this loser had to say about nothing at all…~sigh~ I guess I better go back and waste another five minutes reading what her mother had to say about Tori's useless book! lol Why is that these tell all books are coming from younger and younger actors (I use that word very loosely)? They end up having to come out with 'Tell All' installments every ten years to keep things fresh! Remember when real stars used to come out with actual biographies only once and that was after 70-80 years??!
