Kelly Taylor!

Did you hear? It's confirmed: Jennie Garth is joining the cast of CW's Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff, as a guidance counsellor. I can hardly stand it. Kelly was always my favourite.

And she went to college for psychology, so she's totally going to "get" the students, and hopefully, help the new twins adjust from Des Moines or St. Paul. Just kidding... But still, remember when Emily Valentine...

started at West Beverly and Kelly had her baby doll dress in a knot because Emily was hanging out with Brandon AND Dylan and then Emily said "They should have given me a score card instead of a class schedule, so I can keep track of everyone's boyfriends."

Kelly should consider doing that for the new class. It would be like, totally helpful.

Anyway I can't wait for the new generation. I was a bit worried that the kids would be too young, but I didn't need to worry. In true 90210 fashion, we've got 22-year-old Jessica Stroup (of The Hills Have Eyes, Reaper and Prom Night) ...

AnnaLynne McCord, who's 21, and really the cutest! I bet she's the new Kelly.

Dustin Milligan (23) from Yellowknife...

You're not going to need that jacket in Beverly Hills, Dusty. Unless of course, you have the top down on your Porsche.

In other boy news, we've got Michael Steger (of Hannah Montana fame), whose age is nowhere to be found, which means he's either super old (and didn't want a Felicity-type scandal when the show found out he was actually 30) or super young. Like high-school age.

In any case, he's going to be the high-school politician. Or, the new Brandon.

There is one high school age actor: 18-going-on-19-year-old Shenae Grimes (from Toronto!), which makes her the Donna Martin of the show. But we don't have to worry about her graduating, because she already graduated from Degrassi: The Next Generation!

You know who else already graduated? The hottest guy on the show: Ryan Eggold (who's in Johnny Drama's show within a show "Five Towns" on Entourage and on Dirt).

He'll be playing the English teacher. Sigh... I can't wait to go back to school in the fall.
