Exclusive: One Tree Hill Adds Another Beautiful Person

Daphne Zuniga and Torrey DeVitto by Jaimie Trueblood/ABC Family

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?! read more

Melrose Place Alum Daphne Zuniga Welcomes a Do-over

Daphne Zuniga, Christmas Do-Over

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. Starring alongside Ghost Whisperer's Jay Mohr in ABC Family's Christmas Do-Over (premiering this read more

As a fan of Beautiful People ...

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. I see a new summer show, Falcon Beach, is being advertised (maybe like Summerland?) and figured maybe this was going to take Beautiful People's spot for 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 ... read more

Hi, Matt! I am one of those ...

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 ... read more

Any good scoop on the new ...

Question: Any good scoop on the new season of Beautiful People?

Answer: The other man in Marish's life, husband Peter Hermann, has landed a five-episode arc playing a millionaire playboy who starts a relationship with Karen Kerr (Torrey DeVitto). His first air date is March 20. In other People news, have you seen Sophie and Karen's character blogs?

ABC Family has ordered another eight episodes of Beautiful People, to unspool in 2006, meaning we'll get a few more chances to maybe see Daphne Zuniga slip up and call Grant Show "Jake." read more

Will Beautiful People be ...

Question: Will Beautiful People be picked up for a second season?

Answer: If ABC Family can iron out a deal with Sony, yes. I for one would bet on it.

Hi, my name is Angel, I'm 31-years-old...

Hi, my name is Angel, I'm 31-years-old and I'm addicted to teen shows. (OK, really all TV, but it is especially embarrassing that I love these). Now can someone send me to that rockin' rehab where Kirsten on The O.C. is staying? Anyway, my current obsession is the ABC Family show Wildfire, and I think they are trying to kill me. I'm all for cliff-hanger endings, I've been patiently waiting all summer to find out what Luke said to Lorelai (please be "yes"), who is behind Veronica's door (please be Logan) and what the heck is in that hatch (please be something cool). However, now I'm left hanging, and in the worst way: It literally stopped in the middle of an important scene. Will Kris win her horse race and show up that nasty Tina? More importantly, will she get back together with that fun-lovin' Junior? And how will Dani cope with the news that she and Junior are only step sibs and that Daddy Dearest has been lying to her all along? Thank good read more

What's your view on Beautiful ...

Question: What's your view on Beautiful People?

Answer: I'm a big fan of beautiful people — in fact, the prettier the better. Oh, wait, you mean the show on ABC Family. Silly me. I was disappointed by the season premiere, mostly because it reduced Daphne Zuniga to a glorified extra. I also felt like it wanted desperately to be a big-city Gilmore Girls and, well, homey don't play that. But just when I was about to write this show off, they go and exploit Zuniga's Melrose Place connections in a way that brings a tear to my eye. For the Sept. 26 season finale, Zuniga will be reunited with her MP leading man read more

Life Is Beautiful for Melrose Alum

Daphne Zuniga

Daphne Zuniga is back on television — not that she ever really left. It's just that her most recent bid for a longtime prime-time run, as former Playboy pinup Shelly Pierce on American Dreams, was snipped short when the ratings-challenged NBC drama got snuffed. Now the beautiful brunette best known for playing Melrose Place's relatively (being the key word) moral Jo and Spaceballs' Druish Princess Vespa, is betting on Beautiful People. The new drama (premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET on ABC Family) presents Zuniga as Lynn Kerr, a newly single mother of two girls who, because of one of her daughter's academic aspirations, must relocate from a small town in New Mexico to read more
