> "There's been a real void in the 90210 universe in terms of gay and bisexual characters," admits executive producer Rebecca Sinclair in Entertainment Weekly. Hence, she promises that a budding romantic plot line involving new character Gia (Rumer Willis, pictured) and Adrianna won't be just a fling. "We're coming at this [relationship] from a genuine place and not going, 'Let's do a titillating story that will grab some promotion.' This is a real aspect of teenager life that's interesting," she says. Adrianna's adolescence has already included some good old-fashioned drug addiction and a full-term pregnancy, so hey, what's a little lesbian love?
> If you've been feeling like Project Runway is falling flat this season, you're not alone. Viewership has fallen more than 20% since this season's debut in August on its new network, Lifetime. Moreover, the show has done little to refresh Lifetime's midwestern mommish look as it was intended: the network's overall ratings continue to spiral downward.
