It's official: One Tree Hill is obsessed with beautiful people and Beautiful People. Just weeks after Daphne Zuniga, who starred as the matriarch on the short-lived ABC Family soap, was added to the cast, producers have tapped her daughter on that show, Torrey DeVitto, to do a multi-episode arc. The two actresses probably won't cross paths on the Hill, though. Zuniga will be involved in Brooke's storyline, while DeVitto will be playing the nanny looking after Nathan and Haley's son, James (although I hear her eye will wander elsewhere).It happened again: I made it through another OTH item without making a single snide comment about the show. What is wrong with me?!
From Spaceballs' sweet 'n' innocent Princess Vespa to edgy Melrose Place photographer Jo to the single mom she played on the short-lived Beautiful People, Daphne Zuniga has kept knocking on Hollywood's door and landing an array of roles that keep her refreshed and working hard. In fact, she's so dedicated to her craft that she was willing to shoot a holiday movie in the August heat.

Question: As a fan of Beautiful People and seeing how short this last season was, I was wondering if you knew if there would be another season and if we will have to wait until after the summer.

Just wondering if you knew anything.
Answer: It's way too early to know about People's renewal (probably no word until midsummer, which means no new episodes for a while if ever), but consider Falcon Beach for your new guilty pleasure, if you're into that sort of thing. It will be filling the slot where People previously aired ...
Question: Hi, Matt! I am one of those very concerned fans who fears losing great shows such as Everwood, Gilmore Girls, etc., with the WB/UPN merge. I noticed the other day that ABC Family is sporting a show called Beautiful People. What are your thoughts on the possibility of some of these shows being sold to ABC Family? They already rerun some of the WB shows, so why not take on new episodes? I know that it looks like Gilmore Girls will remain, but I can't lose Everwood. I also like One Tree Hill and was a fan of Related. I know you hated it, but week after week it improved and became one of the shows I looked forward to watching. Anyway, I was watching the show Beautiful People and wondered if there might be a place for some of the WB shows on ABC Family. Your thoughts? Also, is there anything a desperate fan can do to save our favorite shows? Do networks really pay attention to petitions?
Answer: I'm not sure petitions, online or otherwise, will help the CW powers-that-be in making
