Jason Priestley: Tori Spelling is a money grubber & Brad Pitt’s a stinker

Jason Priestley

This is a photo of Jason Priestly at the Jameson Dublin film festival in February. Do you remember him? He was kind of a big deal in the early 1990s. This was long before the battles raged between Edward vs. Jacob and Gale vs. Peeta. Back in the day, it was Brandon Walsh vs. Dylan McKay on the original Beverly Hills, 90210. Okay … the dude characters didn’t battle much. It was more like Brenda vs. Kelly. But in the hearts of the show’s female fans, it always came down to who was dreamier, Jason Priestley or Luke Perry.

Who did I vote for during the 90210 run? Luke Perry all the way. Jason was alright but not my type. Plus Brandon always ended up going for the wrong girls. Remember Emily Valentine? Something inside of Brandon made him want to fix broken girls who didn’t want to be fixed. Then something happened during the last half of 90210. Brandon pretty much dropped out of the show’s soap opera. He could be found for one or two scenes per episode at the Peach Pit. One of the characters would go in and whine about their terrible life, and Brandon would unconvincingly squint in response. Jason looked like he had completely checked out of the part.

After the 90210 run was over, Jason stopped acting for many years. He drove race cars and posed for photos with hot race car babes. Only in the past few years has he made baby steps back into Hollywood. He directed his first feature film, Dylan and Cas, which received a small indie reception in Dublin. Now Jason is cashing in on his former co-stars with a memoir titled (ha) Jason Priestley: A Memoir. He has some things to say about bitchy Shannen Doherty, rude Tori Spelling, and smelly Brad Pitt:

Brad Pitt was his roommate in 1987: “Just for fun, we used to have competitions over who could go the longest without showering and shaving. Brad always won. Having to go on an audition meant cleaning up, which is what usually put an end to the streak.”

Jason & Shannen Doherty once took a private jet to a NYC meeting: “I could not believe my ears at Shannen’s very first words after she boarded. Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, ‘Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?’ She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn’t really tell if Shannen was kidding or not. But that was just the beginning. I looked on, becoming more uneasy by the minute as she began bitching about the short notice and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else.”

On Tori Spelling “I happened to be at home watching the local news one night, something I rarely got to do. Tori Spelling’s yard sale made the broadcast that night. I saw my very own wedding invitation on the screen. Apparently, it had gone for five bucks, including a personal autograph by Tori. She sold my wedding invitation to a stranger.”

Dean McDermott is a d-ck: “I walked over, extended my hand and said ‘Hi Dean, Jason Priestley … He stared down at my hand, then back up at my face. No handshake…nothing… ‘Well. [Mutual friend] Tom Cavanaugh speaks highly of you,’ I said. ‘Oh yeah?’ Dean said aggressively. ‘Yeah, for some reason he seems to think you’re a nice guy.’ I turned and left. Haven’t spoken to him since.”

Jason also has some bad stuff to say about Mischa Barton in his book. He also promises to reveal love advice from Bradley Cooper (wtf). Oh, I can’t wait to hear about BCoop’s serial-killer romantic tips. I’m not at all surprised to hear what he has to say about Brad, Shannen, Tori, or Dean. That was so rude of Tori to sell Jason’s wedding invite. You know that she knew Jason would hear about it.

Here’s Jason with Luke Perry at the Dark Tourist premiere last August. These two are still good buddies, which is very cool.

    I would, Dylan McKay. I so would. Call me.

    • sienna says:

      I love you. Seriously, you made my life. Its like Jr High all over again..

    • Susan says:

      I can’t listen to REM’s Losing My Religion without thinking about poor, tortured Dylan balled up in the fetal position, on the couch of his pool cabana, crying his eyes out. Made him hotter for some reason.

      • ThatGirl says:

        Same!!! Didn’t him & Brenda brake up to that song while sitting in his porche too? Hilarious!

      • Nimbolicious says:

        And the episode where Brenda cries in her bedroom to the strains of “Man on the Moon” after breaking up with Dylan…….

      • mickey says:

        “But Brandon….IT’S LOSING MY RELIGION!!!”

        Of course I think of this EVERY time I hear it! Good or bad? I don’t know.

  2. Cleveland Girl says:

    Wow. I was sooo in love with these guys during their hayday – now they both look kind of beat. Always loved Brandon Walsh tho!

    • paola says:

      I was never into Dylan or Brandon… but I looooooved Noah!

      • Cleveland Girl says:

        LOVED Noah too!!! I wanted him to end up with Valerie!

      • paola says:

        I don’t recall what happened to him. Did he end up with Donna then left LA for good? Because I do remember hooking up with Valerie more than once.

        Valerie was such a good character.. without her everything was so boring!

      • Sal says:

        paola, Noah left the show, alone. I can’t remember why. Donna and David married on the very last episode of the show.

    • GeeMoney says:

      “I was sooo in love with these guys during their hayday – now they both look kind of beat.”

      Dude… they are both pushing 50. Cut them some slack.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Right? I think they look better than a lot of dudes my age and I’m 35.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        He/they look AMAZING for being close to 50. That is not what 50 looked like when I was a kid.

      • homegrrrl says:

        I can say I never watched these shows, and am so proud of myself for having a life in my 20’s rather that watching these rich kids spew their entitled brattiness unto their viewing public.

        The funny thing is this guy puts down other’s for being entitled and gossipy…in his entitled gossipy book??

      • Nina W says:

        Homegrrrrl, 90210 was a drama not a reality show, they were all struggling actors only Tori was the child of the super rich father. The show was super soapy and not about rich kids but a collection of young pretty people being overly dramatic. You can be proud of yourself for “never watching” but you also have no idea what you missed so don’t make silly assumptions about content you never saw.

      • Veronica Knowles says:

        I agree they do look beat. There are hot 50 year olds out there. These two look like they didn’t exercise and drank too much.

        Neither has the star quality they had anymore.

      • jaye says:


        Sooo…those of us who watched the show had no life? I had a pretty full life in my early 20’s what with college and friends and such, and I still watched the show. How’s the rarified air up there on your high horse?

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Um…most of us definitely had a life. I was going to college, working two jobs and still finding time for friends and BARS! Watching a one-hour weekly show – that means it only aired one night per week for only one hour – didn’t take up much of my life. Your throne is but a milking stool.

    • Anna says:

      Steve Sanders forever!!!

    • Holly Hobby says:

      They look good for their age. I’m reserving this book in the library. I’m interested!

      • Carolyn says:

        I’m unashamedly reliving the Beverley Hills 90210 opening credits in my head “da na na da na na na and then the bit where Brandon playfully goes to punch Dylan (or Steve?) in the head”. Oh those boys.

        Hanging my head in shame thinking Steve Sanders now looks the best out of the guys…although Brandon looks mighty fine. But Rob Lowe is better.

        I wouldn’t be the only one thinking “gee David Silver’s done well for himself” whenever I see a photo of BAG and Megan Fox 🙂

        Priestly’s entitled to dish the dirt. More please!

    • Jezzer says:

      Yeah, it’s so weird how a couple of decades will make someone look different.

  3. Dani2 says:

    I still think Jason has really pretty eyes, don’t hate me.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      He’s looking kinda good to me…I’m gonna be bold and say that yes, I would hit it.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        Same here… and I liked ‘Dylan’ on the show. Now Jason all the way….

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Me too. I was a Dylan girl. I am now Full Brandon.

      • kri says:

        Pretty eyes for sure. Shrieking with laughter over the Steve Sanders thing-f’ing IAN ZIERING!! Eye-in. Oh, man. And to think, despite all of the fine work done on 90210, Sharknado was Ian’s finest work! Priceless story about the Tori & Dean Dream Team.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I met him once, and was very impressed by how kind he was. Like, he went out of his way to be generous and pleasant when it wasn’t necessary. I wasn’t star struck, and maybe I have gotten a little cynical, but I was really amazed at how benevolent this man was to people around him. (I have a sneaky suspicion it is because he is Canadian, wink! 😉 )

      • magpie says:

        Yes, was a Dylan girl too but Jason has aged better and dresses wayyy better too. I am liking his oxfords and arty scarf. The sunglasses around Luke’s neck are awful. Full Brandon!

  4. paola says:

    I’m so glad to hear that all i ever thought about Shannen Doherty is true.
    She always seemed like the fugliest, snottiest, meanest bitch. I could never stand her. Every time I saw her face i just wanted to slap her and tell to sit down and STFU. And now finally thanks to all her shenanigans nobody wants to work with her. EVER.
    She looks like an old hag now, way older than Tori Or Jennie.

    Tori and Dean seem like they deserve each other. I always thought Tori got the job on Beverly Hills 90210 only because of her father. She was never a good actress and so veeeeeery annoying.
    The fake boobs and those cow’s eyes never got me.
    Selling the wedding invitation is beyond cheap. I mean really? For 5 bucks???

    I believe Jason Priestley was quite close with Jennie Garth and Luke Perry. They seem close now too.

    • LL says:

      “I believe Jason Priestley was quite close with Jennie Garth and Luke Perry. They seem close now too.”

      I believe that is true. They both were on her show with Amanda Bynes (can’t remember the name). They also did those Old Navy commercials.

    • Hiddles forever says:


      I am happy to hear that too. Wow, she seemed like the most self-entitled arrogant biotch ever… Glas he confirmed that! 🙂

      No comment about Tori, selling his wedding invitation for 5 bucks? FGS….

      • starrywonder says:

        Yeah nice to see that he is like yep Tori kind of sucks. I will probably buy his memoir.

    • Dubois says:

      Lainey had a link to some sort of Q&A with the Heathers cast and a few people remenisced about what a snotty bitch Shannon Doherty was back then too.

    • KatNotNice says:

      Yeah but they all resort to mention her and other names to make themselves relevant though.

      • Bridget says:

        I think its more that enough time has passed that they’re allowed to be honest. They’ve all probably gotten the Shannen question a lot over the years, especially Jason.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        Hardly. This is WHY they’re being interviewed — so they can talk about what they experienced. Mentioning the other people is a necessary part of that, not something they do to remain “relevant”.

        Because there’s nothing about name-dropping Shannen Doherty or Tori Spelling that makes a person “relevant” anymore. They are aaaaaall beloved has-beens now.

    • MollyB says:

      I remember back in the day, Tori stating that she auditioned for 90210 under a fake name so no one knew she was Aaron Spelling’s daughter. Riiiiiiight. Out of all the young, wannabe actresses in Hollywood, they just happened to chose the homeliest, worst actress auditioning, with NO IDEA that she was the producer’s daughter.

  5. Trillian says:

    They are so short. I used to watch Beverly Hills as a teenager and I always thought Luke Perry was a tall guy. Then when I was in the States I met him at a mall event … he was my height. Which means I can spit on Jason Priestleys head. Sorry but that killed the hots for me.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Thank you, Trillian. Now I am in mourning. RIP lust for Dylan and Brandon. You served me well for 20 years.

    • Dame Snarkweek says:

      I guess Size Does Matter, lol.

    • Hello says:

      “He was my height. Which means I can spit on Jason Priestleys head” LOL that mental image made me giggle for ages. How tall are you Trillian?

  6. Kiddo says:

    Wow, foreboding on what was to come from Tori Spelling. Now she has gone on to sell out her children and soul for the almighty green.

    So is he bragging that he got more auditions than Brad at the time? Because he says that’s what always broke the streak, but Brad lasted longer without bathing. Hmm.

    • Esmom says:

      Eh, I think you’re reading too much into the shower thing. I didn’t see bragging.

      I like all his dish, good scoops. I was always Team Brandon, full disclosure, Dylan just never did it for me.

      Ah, those nights of 90210, Melrose Place, takeout Thai food and cheap wine with 5 other girlfriends. Often the highlight of my weeks back then!

      • Kiddo says:

        Now I’m gonna have a hankering for Thai food. Damn you, Esmom.

      • Cleveland Girl says:

        I still miss those shows SOO much. I can’t believe the Soap Network shut down. I watched the reruns every day! I know I sound like a complete loser! 🙂

      • Esmom says:

        Kiddo, I may actually miss the food more than the shows! No decent Thai food where I am now, within delivery distance at least.

      • anon33 says:

        Cleveland Girl: ME TOO. I was so pissed when they took Soapnet away…

    • Bridget says:

      In 1987 both Priestly and Pitt would have been pounding thr pavement to any open audition, so less bragging and probably more the fact that Brad was just sitting at home getting baked instead.

      • Mrs Odie says:

        Probably! Though I remember his breakthrough role as Jonathan Keith, the rock star, on Growing Pains! That was his Jill Schoelen phase. His first engagement of many that did not lead to marriage (is he 3/4 or more? Jill, Gwyneth, Jennifer, Angie).

        I was solidly team Dylan back in the day, but Priestly looks great. Didn’t he almost die in a race car accident?

  7. Okay, seriously—guys are DISGUSTING. I don’t know what it is. Why would they even think something like that is fun? That reminds me of my little brother–you have to force him to change his clothes more than once a week, and he cries if you make him take a shower more than once a week (he’s the spoiled, baby of the family, so he’s used to crying to get what he wants). It’s so gross. And you should see his feet–they look like hobbit feet–long nails with what looks like ten years worth of crud under them…ewww.

    And that story about Tori—God, she is so tacky. I read that on the dailymail. How are you going to sell a wedding invitation from your friend…for FIVE bucks?

    • paola says:

      My goodness! I guess your brother is not old enough to realise how disgusting all that is.

    • And who is surprised that Dean is a douchebag? Not me. I’m betting you that every night he goes to bed, he prays to the Green God i.e. money, that he’ll wake up and it’ll all have been a dream, he’ll have married someone who had a big chunk of that Spelling fortune. I don’t feel sorry for him at all, being humiliated on that stupid show–fake or not.

      • paola says:

        I’ve read something about people with narrow eyes being greedy and stingy. I guess it works in his case!

      • TG says:

        @VC – I don’t even watch Tori’s show but I read something about Dean whining about how he wanted(s) toncommit suicide because if all the pain he has caused Tori. So now Tori has to walk on eggshells around this piece of sh*t. Talk about emotional blackmailing. What a loser if he was going to do it he would have. It probably is all fake but Tori is setting a bad example for her kids by letting this creep in the home.

      • I think Tori’s just as bad, if not worse than he is. He wasn’t the one saying that the tabloids were destroying their family/making their kids cry because of a divorce headline–Tori was. And I doubt this whole thing (true or not) was Dean’s idea. This woman has ZERO shame.

      • Montrealise says:

        I think there’s a reason that Aaron Spelling disinherited Tori – he knew that Dean was just itching to get his hands on the Spelling fortune.

      • @Montrealise
        Me too. I bet that if she had at least insisted on a prenup when she married him, she might’ve gotten some money. But Daddy Spelling knew what was up. I wouldn’t have given her a penny, just on the basis of spending a million bucks on a wedding, for a marriage that barely lasted a year…..

    • GByeGirl says:

      Do people keep wedding invitations? Is that a thing?

  8. Ange says:

    I was a Brandon girl back then and omg am I a Jason girl now. He has aged into just the right amount of manly wrinkles for me, dayum.

    • Erinn says:

      Ugh, I find him super attractive. I was ten when the show ended, so I never had a side in the whole ‘which guy is the best’ thing, but he has aged sooooo perfectly.

    • ldub says:


    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I posted the same above. He looks good, man.

    • mom2two says:

      Jason has aged very well. I was never into 90210 back in the day (which totally made me the uncoolest girl in school, as my celeb crush back then was John Corbett) but Jason looks good and is more attractive to me now than he was as a teen heartthrob.

  9. blue marie says:

    It was always Dylan McKay for me, although looking back now I’m not sure why.
    Doherty has always been a bit of a bitch, so it doesn’t shock me. But I guess the jokes on her because as QQ pointed out not too long ago, she’s doing those damn college commercials that get stuck in your head.

    I’m not surprised with Tori, I think she’s proving she’s done it all for the money. And the Dean story made me chuckle.

    • LB says:

      On replay, I really dislike Dylan and his poor little wounded boy issues. Both Kelly and Brenda deserved better.

      • blue marie says:

        They did! But if I’m being honest, one of my favorite episodes is still when Brenda and Dylan got together.

      • Rll says:

        @Blue Marie, the one where he smashes a flower pot at Brenda’s feet on their date cuz he’s a tortured rich boy whom nobody loves? LOVE that episode

      • LB says:

        I do enjoy that episode. Also the one where they break up to REM and then get back together to a Chris Isaak, lol. But in retrospect, Dylan was a jerk.

      • Jukebox says:

        To this day, I still don’t understand either of their obsessions with Dylan. I mean, it even played out onto that new 90210 crap show. A bunch of late-30 somethings still vying for Dylan McKay broodiness?! He must’ve had some dope dick…

    • megs283 says:

      Should she be a chef? A lawyer? How about a police officer?!?! SO PAINFUL.

    • Mrs Odie says:

      A BIT of a bitch? She is a psychopath. Usually, people in Hollywood don’t talk trash about each other because they don’t want to burn bridges, but no one can muster the energy to say anything nice about Shannen Doherty.

      I was friends with Dean Factor’s sister-in-law, and the stuff that was in the press was only the tip of the iceberg of that lady’s shannenanigans. She holds a grudge, and she is never the one in the wrong.

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I was always a Dylan girl.
    If he’s going to dish the dirt, it has to be new dirt. Shannen’s bitchy, Tori and her leech are gross, and Brad Pitt likes being stinky- everyone knows that!

    • I wonder how long that lasted (Brad being stinky)? Because seriously, I can see it when he was younger–but I don’t see it now, or ten, fifteen years ago (not on the regular, anyway). Because seriously, no matter how hot a guy is, if every time I run into him, I smell him from twenty feet, then he won’t even warrant a second glance. I remember one of my aunts dated this really (to be blunt) fat guy—he was just BIG. And he ALWAYS stunk, because he wouldn’t even wash himself (or didn’t do it well enough) in the creases. It’s disgusting.

  11. Eleonor says:

    He looks damn good.

  12. bohemia says:

    Why would he name-drop? I don’t get that. Plus, i believe in the people do change maxim… hence, it’s annoying to hear people put up other people’s past for public consumption… not fair

  13. lizzy says:

    I think I was like 7 or 8 when this show ended. Only now realising Jason Priestley and Luke Perry are not the same person.

  14. Froggy says:

    So funny to read what a pompous b1tch Shannen was and how she’s only on my tv now at 3 am advertising some trade school. Karma.

    • Cleveland Girl says:

      I know I know – but I still break down in tears every time I see the episode when Dylan chooses Kelly over Brenda. It broke my heart.

      • Mingy says:

        Aww me too! The way she walked off alone..I really hoped they’d get back together, it seemed like they were, but she left the show/stayed in London lol.

      • Mrs Odie says:

        I was SO into the Kelly/Dylan affair. It rocked my teenage heart. The pool scene where they finally hooked up was so hawt.

        Later, I was confused and heartbroken when Kelly and Brandon didn’t get married, but everyone partied together anyway, Kelly in her dress. That didn’t resonate for me.

  15. Sunlily says:

    Oh, so I was the only David Silver lover? 🙁
    *slowly backs out of the room*

  16. MissBB says:

    So, I’m wondering about this statement:

    Brad Pitt was his roommate in 1987: “Just for fun, we used to have competitions over who could go the longest without showering and shaving. Brad always won. Having to go on an audition meant cleaning up, which is what usually put an end to the streak.”

    Does that mean that Jason had more auditions (and was more succesfull) back in the day? Jason had to clean up, Brad could go on being dirty, so Brad won? Hehe, you never know how things work out in the end.

  17. escondista says:

    Tackier than selling your friend’s wedding invitation? Selling stories about their personal lives.

    • Mrs Odie says:

      Oh, BURN! Except Tori sells everything personal. She went on her show and talked about how badly she was treated by ex castmembers. Turnabout is fair play, and Tori sTORIted it.

  18. GeeMoney says:

    Jason Priestley is THE BEST. I might just have to pick up this book!

    And back in the day, I was all about Dylan. But I still had a little soft spot in my heart for Brandon and those dimples 🙂

    • Mystified says:

      He is a genuinely nice guy! I have a son with disabilities, and about 10 years ago he volunteered, along with Anthony Edwards, to help raise funds for my son’s special needs preschool outside of Nashville. They posed for pictures for a $15 contribution. They were super nice. I told Jason that I had been a big fan of 90210. He asked if I watched Anthony Edwards show too (ER at the time). I told him that I couldn’t stand George Clooney to the point where I could watch nothing with him in it. He told me that I was a good judge of character!

  19. Wren33 says:

    On the face, selling your friend’s wedding invitation is tacky, but do people really keep their friends’ wedding invitation in the first place? I normally throw them away. I might have kept my brother’s. I certainly wouldn’t expect all the people I invited mine to have kept them in a frame somewhere.

    • Eleonor says:

      I have the one of my best friend, the menu, I’ve also kept the note through which they thanked us. But I am a “keeper” (don’t know how to say it in english) I try to keep everything has a special meaning for me, I still have the stopper (the cap) of a bottle of wine I’ve drank with a very special person for me, I’ve written the date my name and his name on it. Nearly ten years ago.

    • She probably kept it because he was (somewhat) famous. And apparently she’s a packrat—she has tons of stuff in storage….for all that whining that she can’t afford a vasectomy for that skeeze she married.

      • paola says:

        She is 5 bucks closer to get Dean a vasectomy.

      • Wren33 says:

        I used to be much more of a packrat, but the advantage of not being to afford a storage place or a large house is at some point you just need to let it go. I am much more nostalgic about stuff through about college age.

    • Peppa says:

      I used to do this paper crafting thing called quilling, and I used to quill people’s invitations and put them in a shadow box as part of their gifts. I honestly could not see keeping a wedding invitation, except if you are a hoarder (which Tori is) or if you thought it could go for five dollars at a yard sale! Tori is one desperate chick, obviously having a rich daddy doesn’t set you up for life in every case.

  20. Sal says:

    I was always a Brandon girl, and still am. Dylan picked Kelly over Brenda. That was enough of a turn off and deal-breaker right there. But it annoyed me also that Dylan was a bad guy, this brooding miserable ahole who treated women and others, badly. Brandon was always a good guy, treated his girl nicely, was respectable, never hurt a woman. I don’t understand why some women like the brooding ungrateful bad boy. Sure Dylan was hot, but he needed a major, major attitude adjustment. If someone is an ahole, looks don’t save you.

  21. Aussie girl says:

    I can and can’t believe how rude dean was to Jason. What was that all about..?
    Back in the day everyone knew that tori spellings daddy was the reason she was on the show and that his $$ was the reason for her bad boob job. Her nose is funny on one side too, there was a thing I heard where a bird bit it…? Not sure if that was BS..? Oh, where is the Steve lovers!!! Lol!😜

  22. eliza says:

    I have always said Tori is not only a money grubber but a truly sketchy person. Selling wedding invites? How desperate can one be for $5?

  23. Kim1 says:

    So if he was in competition with Brad to not shower back then , he was disgusting as well.Who goes days without showering? Disgusting
    Well that was 27 years ago I heard multiple people say Brad smells good now i.e., passenger on flight from Australia, JLaw and her friend at Oscars, reporter on RC at TIFF.
    I wonder how Jason feels about Brad’s success in the Biz? Proud of him, a little jealous, etc.?

  24. ToodySezHey says:

    Luke Perry was hotter back in the say (those bedroom eyes and that voice!), but Jason has aged so much better. But both were way too short for my taste.

    Good lord, who knew he and Brad Pitt used to be friends? Bead is pretty loyal, if Jason wanted or needed help breaking into films I can’t see Brad not helping a friend. I guess he really was over it.

  25. Serena says:

    I was always a dylan girl, but now I’d choose brandon.. less drama and stricking blue eyes. Jason has aged well, but I hate whoever name-drops. By the way I believe what he said and that doesn’t surprise me at all. Tori is a moneygrabber and married one of her own kind who’s a douchebag. I’ve read many stories about shannen, so no surprise there either. I’m glad he’s not saying anything bad on luke or jennie thou!i really like those three -ps always thought kelly was better than brenda and shoul have him 😉

    There were a few episodes of 90210 where Jason Priestly didn’t wear any underwear. For that reason alone I’d pick Brandon/Jason. 😉

  27. Jackson says:

    Ok, Tori selling his wedding invite did make me laugh. Of course it’s incredibly crass to sell it, although what did everyone else do with the invitation they received? In the trash. So at least Tori kept it around for awhile!

  28. pnichols says:

    What’s Deans problem?? Why is that due so arrogant? He’s such a tool.

  29. Bridget says:

    Priestly directed a lot of the later 90210 episodes, so when he wasn’t as involved on screen he was behind the camera. He even directed the episode famous college graduation episode.

    • Jukebox says:

      Yup, after his departure in S8, he stayed on as director. I was very disappointed he didn’t come back for the finale though, but at least he was on the video congrats for Donna and David.

  30. Ginger says:

    I only saw the show once or twice but I know all of the players he speaks of in his book. It sounds like it would be a good read. He does have beautiful eyes.

  31. Jane says:

    I was never into him on BH, but he was really hot on Tru Calling. He aged well, I guess.

    Anyway, spill that T, sis!

  32. Happy21 says:

    I watched the show right through it’s entire run. I was 12 I think when it started and I loved Dylan McKay wholeheartedly but a couple years ago I decided to go back and watch it again…I never made it through the first season but I can tell you that being this much older I was all about Brandon. To my older self he is way hotter than Luke Perry ever was. Funny how that happens. The same thing happened when I went back and watched ER. In the beginning Dr. Ross (George Clooney) was not hotter than Dr. Carter but when I went back and watched it I was in awe of George Clooney and Noah Wylie just looked like a pipsqueak. Funny how our tastes change as we get older.

    • anon33 says:

      OMG ITA re: Carter and Ross.

    • Carolyn says:

      oh me too. One of our tv stations here in Australia is running the original series. From my 43-year old perspective Brandon & even Steve Sanders are far more appealing than Dylan. But what struck me is how annoying the girls are. Brenda needed to be told “honey, you’re not all that!”. The episode where she is working at the Peach Pit and she’s acting like Laverne & Shirley (complete with horrible put on accent) is unbearable.

      Seeing Priestly, Perry & Zierning interviewed recently, they’re rather humble and readily acknowledge their parts on the show. Doherty is nowhere and Zierning is back due to Sharnado. Karma.

  33. Jukebox says:

    :swoons: Brandon Walsh

    I had the biggest crush on him, and to this day I still think he’s so handsome. I think it’s the way he carries himself. Anyways, fangirling aside, I will be reading his book if he’s dropping this much tea. I always knew Shando was a beast. I mean, who gets fired from 2 of Aaron’s shows?!

    Brandon and Kelly forever!

  34. lunchcoma says:

    He’s aged pretty well! I’d still hit it.

  35. vivian says:

    I thought Colin was really cute!

  36. MinnFinn says:

    I met Jason in the mid 1990’s at a charity event. He was very laid back and did not at all seem vain or full of himself. I was there with a date and another couple and it was the other female (Lisa) in my party who spotted him. We went over to say hi, since he was standing there alone and he chatted and posed for several pictures for Lisa who was a huge fan of 90210. He’s aging really well.

  37. Sighs says:

    Cher is saving herself for Luke Perry.

  38. bettyrose says:

    All the guys on that show were too preppy and smug for my tastes but Brandon/Jason P is completely insufferable on the show and IRL. Well okay I sort of dug David Silver in the later years of the show.

  39. d says:

    He’s lucky to be alive…he wS in this horrific car crasha few years ago I like the dude.

    • Holly Hobby says:

      Yeah there was that. So he aged well despite the bumps and bruises.

  40. Camille (The Original) says:

    He just has not aged well, at all.

    And I was always a Luke Perry fan, Dylan all the way :).

  41. Georganna says:

    I love his place in Uquelet that we stay each year. So nice.

  42. Mixtape says:

    The article doesn’t mention that JP has been working as a television director for years–so he didn’t really bow out of Hollywood, just the front-of-the-camera work.

  43. vv says:

    Jason Priestley is great as Fitz. That show kills me: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1558182/

  44. Vl says:

    Was I the only one hating on Jennie Garth? I would rage at a poster of her in whatever teen-mag I was reading. Granted, I was 10-12, but surely others found her an insufferable fake bitch?
    I was Dylan ftw ofc.

  45. jasmine says:

    i read every one of these comments and is it sad that no one mentioned Andrea? lol poor thing…she was always being left out!

    i read somewhere that she and the guy who played Brandon/Brenda’s dad were practically the same age…

    I was 10 when the show started and obviously 20 when it ended so it framed my teenage years for me and I think I kept going back and forth between the guys…however I definitely wanted Brenda and Dylan to be together, Dylan and Kelly had ZERO chemistry, they just had to be thrown together because Shannen got fired.

  46. captain says:

    Jennie Garth. I was so jealous of her, wished I would somehow by magic become so gorgeous and polished. She was just so perfectly beautiful, with this mouth and blond hair. And knew I never could.

  47. lisa2 says:

    All these people made the mistake of most TV Series stars. They stayed on their shows too long. The public only sees them as the characters they played on the TV screen. I never really watched this show. I couldn’t relate to any of them.

    I don’t know if any of them have gone on to make it bigger than the characters they played on the show. Tori is probably the most famous; obvious reasons.

    If Jason had not mentioned Brad would there even be a thread or this many comments. I don’t recall Brad talking about him. But then Brad doesn’t need to mention anyone to promote his projects.

  48. Green Is Good says:

    Jason Priestly has a casual elegance in these photos. Very well dressed. Never thought I’d have shoe envy regarding men’s shoes.

  49. Holly Hobby says:

    I don’t know why everyone’s getting worked up about him name dropping. He wrote a memoir about his life. How was he going to talk about his career without mentioning others? By saying how swell everybody was? That would be one boring read.

    Also what he said wasn’t so scandalous. He’s just confirming what was alleged in the press. Brad = smelly. I believe that. Look at him circa the Juliette Lewis years. He looked like a homeless bum.

  50. Mrs.Darcy says:

    Much as I loathe Shannon Doherty, I pretty much stopped watching 90120 after she left. I am sure she was a mega b*tch to deal with, but for me the only time the show was remotely interesting was in the early yrs. Team Dylan all the way although I do still think Priestley has pretty eyes and has aged the better of the two. I was exactly the same age they were (supposed – cough) to be, but it never seemed real or relatable, it was just a bit of soapy fun. I was more a Christian Slater Heathers/Pump Up the Volume kind of teen.

    He’s maybe timed the book well, teens of that era are now hitting 40 (ouch) and there may be some retro 90’s nostalgia to boost book sales. The gossip is a little stale, hope he has some juicier stuff than this. I want Andrea dirt! Like did they secretly make fun of a 35 yr old playing a teen?! Or was it creepy weird for the near 30 yr old dudes like Luke and Ian with tween fans? I do love 90’s nostalgia when it’s smart, like when Spike and Cordelia were in Supernatural as a warring witch couple, or when Luke Perry was in Torchwood as Captain Jack’s hot ex.

  51. Discostu004 says:

    Priestley is 44 & Perry is 48. Luke needs to put on some weight so his head doesn’t look like a parsnip. Priestley is a good looking dude, and I’m a guy!
    Tori is awful. A friend of mine saw her at a stoplight once and yelled tori you suck. He said she went bananas, screaming and shooting the finger
    I have a friend who worked for shannen. Not an agent but like a manager of sorts. Said she was horrendous all around
    Ian (eye-an) was always a douche. Just a lousy actor and a crappy character. Steve freakin sanders and his stupid vette and permullet
    BAG sucks. Man was he a tool. When he had that Dorothy hammel wedge haircut, which was actually a popular hairstyle for men, I knew he looked as douchey as a person possibly could, even way back then. Z Cavariccis and cross colors my ass, you can’t rap. You’re the whitest person ever. Did Megan fox have a serious head injury that affected her judgment?
    Always liked Kelly. She was hot and Seemed like she would put out then feel ashamed and wanna do it again. Brenda and her gappy toothed horse face was a turnoff. Maybe with a paper bag and 20 shots of cheap tequila
    No love for Nat at the peach pit? The man could run a restaurant.
    Andrea I think is about 77 years old now. She passed up Harvard to get knocked up by that Mexican guy??? Nice life choice. She shoulda just told brandon that she wanted to go down on him. Get it out there. He woulda acquiesced, then maybe she gets her hooks into him, all because she has that talent
    Valerie was smoking. TAT kicks ass. Now that is a hot babe who, you know, will put out in the driver’s seat of a red vette
