As I was happily watching Donna’s return on 90210 last night, it occurred to me that all of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 alums who have graced the new 90210 are a bunch of unlucky-in-love sad sacks. Let’s break it down: Kelly is a single mom who is estranged from her true love, Dylan; Brenda is barren and single, and so desperate that she slept with Kelly’s one and only love interest on the show, “Professor Matthews”; and now Donna, who showed up last night as a ray of beaming hope with her shiny new baby and promise of a happy David back in Japan, is separated. What gives!? Why are all of our favorite Beverly Hills bitches single and lonely and divorcing? Is this karma for their slutteriffic behavior and boyfriend backstabbing during their high school and college years? Was this how you pictured them? Or did you see them living in a mansion, happily married with two kids and a nanny?
What say you, PopWatchers? Do you, like me, wish that at least one original cast member was happy and healthy in love? I guess our only hope is that Andrea Zuckerman and Jesse Vasquez are living happily ever after somewhere.
