Keeping up with the loves of Brenda Walsh

Keeping track of the life and loves of “90210”‘s resident vixen

Posted on

Recent episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 may have implied that Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Dylan (Luke Perry) would rekindle their three-season romance, but don’t be fooled-this chick’s moving on. Her new flame: David Gail, who debuts on the Oct. 13 show as Stuart Carson, a 24-year-old college dropout working for his rich dad. Gail, 28, who appeared in Aaron Spelling’s failed The Round Table, has 90210 looks (brown hair, green eyes), and his character talks a smooth line (”Slow dances with me are like potato chips. You can’t have just one”). Will he succeed where others have failed? Maybe he can learn from the reject pool:

* DYLAN, independently wealthy high school kid. WHY HE FAILED: Never sleep with your girlfriend’s best friend when your girlfriend is in Paris cheating on you. FAMOUS LAST WORDS: ”I guess we’re better off…as friends.”

* RICK (Lois & Clark‘s Dean Cain), l’ami parisien. WHY HE FAILED: As a summer traveler in France, he was too—how you say?—stupide to realize Brendah‘s accent was faux. FAMOUS LAST WORDS: An off-key version of ”Great Balls of Fire.”

* TONY (Michaael Cudlitz), steroids-taking football player. WHY HE FAILED: His neck was thicker than her waist. FAMOUS LAST WORDS: ”So I guess this means I’m not getting a going-away present?”

* JASON (Maxwell Caulfield), UCLA law student who dated Brenda during the first season. WHY HE FAILED: Sleeping with a minor is still against the law in California. FAMOUS LAST WORDS: ”You’re in high school?!?!?!”
