Twilight's coming to a TV near you --Â sorta! The CW just announced their new shows for the fall and one of them is about vampires! The Vampire Diaries, based on the hit book series by L.J. Smith, is about two brothers, (Lost's Ian Somerhalder and Everwood's Paul Wesley), who are both obsessed with a beautiful girl, played by Degrassi: The Next Generation's Nina Dobrev. Hmm -- sounds a lot like Edward and Jacob fighting for Bella's heart, don'tcha think?!
And Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is coming back to TV! (Remember, she was on 7th Heaven!) Following the successful footsteps of 90210, The CW is remaking another classic '90s TV show, Melrose Place. (FYI: Grace's mom on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Josie Bissett, was an original Melrose cast member!) Also in the show? Jesse McCartney's ex-GF, Katie Cassidy! And it's rumored that Ryan Eggold, who currently plays the teacher Mr. Matthews on 90210, will be a regular cast member!
Will you tune in to The Vampire Diaries and Melrose Place?
