Remember when Annie was a prostitute? Or when Silver used a surrogate to get pregnant with her ex-boyfriend-turned-gay best friend's baby? Well, these are just two of the wild and crazy moments throughout 90210's five-season run.
What began as a show about two siblings moving from Kansas to Beverly Hills, navigating their way through high school cliques, finding friends, having first loves and trivial fights soon morphed into a world that included sex tapes, mental disorders, prostitution, pregnancy and even murder.

Any scoop to get us Mer-Der fans through the dog days of summer? Perhaps some "baby talk" about Grey's writing in Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy? — Hillary
MATT: Both Chyler Leigh and I are of the mind that Grey's Anatomy would be hard-pressed to accommodate Pompeo's pregnancy, if only because of the timing. "As far as I know they are not [writing it in]," Leigh told me, pointing out that by the time the ABC serial resumes production, "Ellen will be, like, seven months [along]."

Such a jump would also allow poor George time to heal and look like recast Eddie Cibrian. (I kid!)
If Fox is serious about Fringe (and aren't we all), why is it forcing it to compete against CSI, Grey's Anatomy and The Office on Thursdays? — Anita
MICKEY: At first blush, moving Fringe to such a powerhouse night would appear to be a suicide mission. But Fox entertainment prez Kevin Reilly ...
We were all sad to see the charming Dustin Milligan get the heave-ho from 90210 this spring, but fear not! TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that West Bev is getting a new shot of testosterone in the fall, courtesy a new recurring character. Read on to meet the new Peach Pit pipsqueak...
Now playing in this week's (early!) edition of the Mitovich Mega Minute:
• As I spoke to nearly the entire 90210 cast at the CW upfronts, the reaction to one cast member's abrupt exit was overwhelming. See what the consensus is, and whether we might see the dispatched hunk ever again.
• Entourage's Ari may have a fight on his hands, as a formidable foe returns to the mix!
• How much time will have elapsed in Bon Temps when HBO's True Blood launches its second season? And will a major mystery be solved? Anna Paquin gives me the answers.
Watch and discuss the brand-new (and early!!) MMM, after the jump.
