The Vampire Diaries alumna has landed a recurring gig on 90210, TVLine has confirmed. Kebbel will play Vanessa, a vivacious former bad girl who becomes romantically involved with one of the zip code’s leading men. (Anyone else putting their money on Liam?)

    • I have all but given up on 90210 this year. I didn’t watch for several weeks and turned back in this week for Kellie Pickler and because Glee wasn’t on and kind of wished I hadn’t. It just annoyed me with that talent show where Naomi’s pathetic little magic beat out against Kellie Pickler. Unless 90210 brings back another Kelly, Jennie Garth; along with Shannen Doherty and other original 90210ers, I don’t think I will be watching anymore/. I wish Arielle Kebbel would have returned to The Vampire Diaries instead, it would be awesome to have a Lexi ghost right now on that show. She may have only been in 2 episodes, but she was awesome.

    • Okay, Who was that again? And Am I supposed to watch 90210 because of her?

  • 90210</strong is so BORING this year. Bring back crazy Adriana! Every episode I watch, and after, I regret it. There is nothing to keep you interested, anymore. We need something like a murder mystery… Dixon, anyone?

  • I don’t know what are they talking about. This season is waaaay better than the previous ones! It’s funnier.

  • I agree with Randy. 90210 has gotten better w each season.

  • Apparently Lexi is coming back as a ghost or s/t this season like everyone else

    • I’m so excited to see Lexi again. Seriously, how has Arielle not scored a regular role on a show? She’s so good!

    • Yup, she’s shown in the Canadian promo for next week’s episode.

    • Was she in the first season? I am not remembering her at all and I didn’t watch the first season of TVD. Who was she?

      • She was in season one 162 candles where Damon staked her, and I think appeared in a flashback for season 2.
        She has only been on the show twice but everyone loved her.

  • I was really disapointed when they killed her on TVD… i liked her character a lot and saw potential. she could have been a love ineterest for damon for sure! Glad she’ll be on 90210 though!

  • I dropped 90210 after last season ended – it had just become way too ludicrous for me, and I lost interest in a lot of the characters. I may tune in for Arielle Kebbel, though. I love her.

    • I agree with you about last season, but give this season a try. The show’s transition to college has actually done it some good, and it has become more enjoyable. Give it another chance I promise it won’t disappoint you.

  • So can someone explain why she can recur but Teddy can’t?

    Comment by dee123 – October 22, 2011 03:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Get over it! Teddy is gone, let some new people in! Just because he is gay, he is not interesting. His character is just boring…

  • I loved her in “The Uninvited” and “The Vampire Diaries” but her appearance on LUX made me not want to see her in anything again.

    @Dee123
    Because Teddy is his own character—they couldn’t accommodate having every character live in LA. She will recur as part of another regulars story.

  • Bring back Lexi for good! I loveddd her character on TVD.

    Comment by Katie – October 22, 2011 07:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree! I’m surprised they killed her off so early on in the series. If you read the books she’s such a big part of what Stefan had become and basically saved him from being “The Ripper”.

  • I liked her on Gilmore Girls. Unfortunately though I have to echo the sentiments here about 90210 being lame.

  • i feel like these are signs that are supposed to tempt me to start watching again, but after they announced “a few actors won’t be back” and it turned out it was just Teddy, i gave it up.

  • I liked her on TVD, was sorry to see her killed off. But it would take a whole lot more than that to get me watching 90210 unfortunately.

  • I think her potential hook ups could be either Liam, Navid, or maybe Austin? Liam’s probably the most likely choice, but given the Navid/Silver tension, he may be 100% single soon, too.

  • I watched the 1st two or three episodes this season and then I’ve just TiVo’d them. I have 3 waiting to be watched. I think 90210 has been truly awful this season and I may not even watch it anymore!!!

    Comment by Kim – October 22, 2011 08:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • this season if 90210 is boring. Last season was awesome and amazing! The characters are becoming really annoying and boring. Dixon and Navid must seriously get a decent storyline! The only good thing about the show is Adrianna. :|

  • I hate to say this but I have a feeling Vanessa is after Liam. I want Vanessa going after Navid cause Navid is about time to get a new girlfriend. I want Annie & Liam back together forever. Lannie forever. But according to Spoilers they are before year end but gonna break up again cause I think it is because of Vanessa. Why do they have to do that to Annie & Liam? Can’t they hookup Navid & Vanessa? I want Lannie. Lannie always and forever. <3<3<3

  • Season 4 is getting a lot better now. I too thought it was boring in the beginning but I think the were building the story then. As for the hook up, I’m hoping for it to be Liam. The last time he had a proper girlfriend was Naomi. The Annie thing was a total mess. Does anyone know when Vanessa’s gonna come on the show?
