Shenae Grimes Walked the Aisle in a Black Wedding Dress

Shenae Grimes wedding dressYou may know Shenae Grimes as Annie Wilson on that blasphemous remake of Beverly Hills 90210, but before The CW spoiled her with L.A. sunbeams and endless Frappés, she played virginal spirit squad member Darcy Edwards on Degrassi.

(Me and an army of Canadian Mounties refuse to accredit 90210 for anything.)

Anyway, Darcy/Shenae/not-Annie laughed in the face of tradition when she wore a black Vera Wang dress at her May 10 hipster wedding (Keira Knightley, eat your heart out) to British model and musician Josh Beech at a HAUNTED hall in Ashford, England.

That girl would never have paid homage to the harlot witches of Salem if she hadn’t been corrupted by American television. I’m a second away from picking up my rotary phone and telling my nosy neighbors what happens when you play the Josh Beech record backwards.  Continue reading “Shenae Grimes Walked the Aisle in a Black Wedding Dress”

Tiffani Amber Thiessen HATED The 90s

Tiffani Amber Justin bieber shirtWhen you think of “faces” of the 90s, it’s unlikely that Winona, JTT, Kurt Cobain, Beavis, Christian Slater, Tiffani Amber Thiessen (and a handful of her Beverly Hills 90210 co-stars) wouldn’t be present.

Sadly, the woman who played tube top and jean jacket-loving Kelly Kapowski on Saved By The Bell and pot-stirring Valerie in 90210 wasn’t fond of the era we watched her grow up in. After being asked what she misses about the 90s by HuffPost, she broke my heart with a six-sentence answer that roughly translates to one simple word: “Nothing.” You decide:

There’s not a lot. I thought the music was terrible, the fashions weren’t that great. I miss the kind of carefree life that I had. I had no worries, really. I had a little worry, but it wasn’t a lot. It was mostly homework and tests, and not as much responsibility. Just being a teenager — that’s what I miss. Being able to go to the beach after school.  Continue reading “Tiffani Amber Thiessen HATED The 90s”

Five Degrassi Stars Who Made It Big

1. Drake. Toronto-born Aubrey Graham had a great run on Degrassi: The Next Generation. His storyline as a popular jock-turned paraplegic was iconic. After his character, Jimmy Brooks, is shot by bullied outcast Rick in season four (2004-05) ratings were boosted and the show gained national attention for their careful and realistic depiction of a school shooting.

Though Graham’s Brooks had musical aspirations and attempted to showcase his rapping skills on television, no one could have predicted that he would become a platinum-selling megastar, onetime Rihanna love interest, musical guest on Saturday Night Live and close personal friend and Cash Money labelmate of Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Wayne.
