Jennie Garth, who played blonde cutie Kelly Taylor on the original 90210, will join the cast of the new spinoff on the CW channel. Ms. Garth will play a guidance counselor to the (probably) much more at-risk new West Beverly High kids, according to the Associated Press. On 90210, Ms. Garth became a diet pill abuser, was trapped in a fire, became involved in a cult, used cocaine, was raped, shot, got amnesia and had a miscarriage, according to her career review. She’ll apparently have a lot of advice to give, but she might be a bit rusty since her roles on What I Like About You with Amanda Bynes and Dancing With the Stars have been so squeaky clean.
