Dear (Insert Name Here)



Dear Jennie Garth

So....you're going to be on Dancing With The Stars this year....I have to say I am equal parts pissed and overjoyed...you see, now I am obligated to watch the show, something I really do not need to be doing, right?

But you see, a part of my soul died the day that Beverly Hills 90210 went off the air, no really...dead.

I lived for 90210, and you my dear sweet Jennie...were my favorite.

Kelly Tayolor...even just typing that gets me all geeked up. I loved her, and you. Every week I would watch and just think "I am so, the "Kelly"...though the similarities are not all together striking.

I am no blond, not rich, no nose job, no bmw...BUT....I did have a bitchtastic bff (like Brenda), I say had because we had a parting of ways after she turned into a racist neo con....but that's not the point, I also had a long relationship with someone who was a total snore fest (that would be that no good hippie I married) much like Kelly's relationship with Brandon, um...and then there is my Bubs, he is an awful lot like Dylan....

So you see, Jennie, I felt a connection with your character, and with you...cuz hello....we have the same name too...

So now my point...please don't suck on Dancing With The Stars, because watching you is like watching me....or, it's like watching 90210, I am really not sure which, but please, please....I hope you are practicing now.

I do have faith in you, I remember you had a work out video, so I know you have some "moves", though since then you have had a lot of babies...too many babies actually (but that is another letter for another time)

So I will leave you now, in hopes that you will get your butt into a dance studio and start this thing...we need you to be the ringer this year...I don't want that coveted trophy going to another athlete.

yours in the spirit of 90210
Jennifer Gordon

For me, it was Buffy, the Vampire Slayer and Xena, Warrior Princess.

I was distraught when the series were canceled.

As for characters I identify with, I'm Charlotte in Sex & the City.

Oh, how I loved 90210 as well. She will always be Kelly to me.

Ive actually never watched Dancing with the stars,but I LOVED 90210!My hubs actually had a callback for it when it was in the developmental phase. Guess I'm glad he wasn't cast!

The 9'er! Thats what we referred to 90210 in college. On the day of the last episode, we had a party where everyone dressed as their favorite character. I went as Andrea Zuckerman just because I knew no one else would be her...is she finally over Brandon??? The best was when my friend Apryl showed up as Steve, donning a blonde wig and letterman jacket. Classic.

Thanks for bringing back the memories Jenn!

I'll never forget the dylan/brenda breakup in his mustang...who can remember the song playing in the background? Hint: its by the same band that sang Shiny Happy People....I'm pretty sure my sister and I cried during that episode. Oh the drama.

ps. how about when Brenda and Kelly had the same prom dress....or DONNA MARTIN GRADUATES!

I wish I had the energy to post a witty celeb letter, but I am so drained! I am trying to finish shopping and cleaning these next two nights, I am have 5 girls over for the bachelorette weekend. I can't wait for it to be over, although I know I will have buttloads (not literally, no soup here) of fun. xoxo

I was way into 30 something (and I was a teenager)

I identify with Grace...there were far too many gay "boyfriend/crushes" in my life...sigh.

Once the 90210 kids graduated high school, the show was kind of over for me. Now, I feel like I missed many episodes that may have changed my world view. However, as soon as I discovered "My So-Called Life" I thought that I was exactly like every single character in that show. I even braided my hair and wore headbands like Rayanne.
