According to OK!, Spelling is pining for her co-star following his recent admission that they had a fling while making the original Beverly Hills, 90120. A supposed source says the actress has “convinced herself Brian’s brought up their past affair for a reason. She’s suddenly flooding his phone with calls and texts, saying they should chat and get their kids together.” The alleged insider adds, “She’s always suffered from low self-esteem. Now Brian’s flirting has made her feel desired again.”
There are several layers of misinformation and misrepresentation in the tabloid’s piece. For starters, to say Green “brought up their past affair” isn’t accurate. The actor admitted to the hookup on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, during which a caller asked if it ever happened. Green only affirmed that he and Spelling hooked up back in the ’90s after host Andy Cohen told him the actress herself had already talked about it.
Additionally, much of the tabloid’s report seems to have been ripped from the latest episode of BH90210. The reboot features the cast of the original series playing fictionalized and exaggerated versions of themselves attempting to film a reboot of the original show. Spelling’s character begins to have feelings for Green’s character after they share an intimate scene in the show-within-the-show. This is a plot line for the characters, not the real actors. The tabloid is apparently just too lazy to come up with its own rumors this week.
Both Green and Spelling are happily married and dedicated to their respective spouses, Megan Fox and Dean McDermott. Just two weeks ago, Spelling shared a picture on Instagram of her husband performing stand-up comedy with a caption detailing how his humor was one of the reasons she fell in love with him. The only feelings involved here are the ones Spelling has for her longtime husband.
With the first season of the 90210 reboot wrapping up, the tabloids have targeted the former stars with plenty of gossip worthy of being plot points on the show. Last month OK! falsely claimed Spelling and Jennie Garth were “fighting” over the casting of Denise Richards. The tabloid has decided to switch from a fake feud with one of her co-stars to an imaginary romance with another.
More recently, Woman’s Day came up with a phony story about Fox threatening to divorce Green after he confirmed the hookup with Spelling. If the tabloids are so desperate to talk about drama surrounding the actors, they might just want to start discussing episodes of the new show instead of coming up with these bogus rumors.
