a) I watch the new "90210" show and
b) Yeah, OK, I like it.
I just lost ALL my hard-earned street cred.
Oh well, I'm just keeping it real.
Like I've said before, I didn't start watching because I wanted to but rather because I took out a contract with my 12 year old self back in 1990 to be forevermore in love, in crazy crazy love, with all things "Beverly Hills, 90210"
Please, don't pretend like you didn't do it too.
You know who you are (ahem, Meredith)
I was totally devastated tonight when I learned that the itty-bitty child who plays NuBrandon...aka Dixon Wilson...on Nu90120 was born in July of 1989.
The original shiznit debuted on October 14, 1990....making NuBrandon just 15 MONTHS old at the time.
We're now talking about someone whose life was still measured (rightfully so, ahem Dooce) in MONTHLY INCREMENTS.
NuBrenda aka Annie Wilson aka Shenae Grimes, was also born in 1989. Ugh.
And, there it is...my world is shattered.
At least the gal who plays Silver, Erin Silver (aka Jessica Stroup) was born in 1986, whereas the "real" (and I use those quotes heavily) Erin Silver was "born" in 1993 as far as I can tell....
That's in keeping with the 90210 tradition!
Everyone knows that Gabrielle "AAAAAAAHHHHHNdrea" Carteris was almost 30 when the series STARTED! She was born in 1961, and played ostensibly 17 year old AAAAAAAAHHHHHHNdrea Zuckerman in 1990.
Math, it's fun!
Do you think I could pass for a high school senior now that I'm 30?
Probably as well as Andrea Zuckerman, eh. Sigh.
