Jessica Lowndes has only fond memories of her days playing Adrianna Tate-Duncan on “90210,” the CW’s reboot of “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
“For me, I was a guest star and I was supposed to be initially in two episodes and two weeks of work… The fact that it turned into over a 115 is like insane and such an incredible experience,” the 28-year-old told Fox News.
She said the show thrust her into the spotlight at the perfect time.
“I had just moved to LA and it was so unexpected,” she recalled. “I had so much fun. I got to dive into so many pressing issues. My character had a lot of drama, so as an actress, it was really fun to play. The whole thing was a highlight to me. It was so not what I thought it was going to be and it turned into being so much more.”
“90210” ran on The CW for five seasons. Lowndes said she learned a lot from the teen series.
“There are days when you are exhausted, tired and having to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to get to set on time, and I feel like soaking in every moment of it because everything great does come to an end. So for me, I’m so happy I did that. There were days when I was so tired but you just look around and appreciate what is going on.”
Lowndes was at The Beverly Wilshire on Thursday to support the Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai Annual Spring Luncheon.
“It’s super important to come together as women,” she said of the event. “I recently took a stand in our fight against misogyny… I challenged women to take off their makeup and to either post a video or make a selfie and nominate other women in their life to do the same. For me it’s not an anti-makeup sort of thing; I love wearing makeup… It’s a way for girls to celebrate who they are and be confident and to feel beautiful. With everything going on right now, there is so much cyber-bullying and for me it’s so powerful every time someone posts these pictures.”
Lowndes said her main goal is to be happy.
“… To me, happiness is what success is. I love what I do; I love to act; I love to sing, but for me it’s about… loving the people that mean the most to me. I surround myself with really good people. I talk to my family; I get out of town if I need a break, and I recharge my batteries. For me, that is the whole thing… It’s about being happy with who you are and where you are at more than anything else.”

90210 star Jessica Lowndes, Glee’s Jayma Mays and Rebecca Romijn have joined the cast of the indie film Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant.
The movie, currently shooting, sees Mark Feuerstein as a womanizing flight attendant who is hit with the news that he has an adolescent son and that his job might be in jeopardy.
A slew of familiar faces are in the roll call, including Stanley Tucci, Marcia Gay Harden, Taye Diggs, Henry Winkler, Molly Shannon, Jason Alexander, Ian Gomez and Leslie Coutterand.
Sam Friedlander is directing from a script by Mike Sikowitz.
While best known for her work in the CW show, Lowndes made her theatrical debut alongside Chace Crawford in the 2008 horror film The Haunting of Molly Hartley. The actress-singer recently starred in Darren Bousman’s rock opera The Devil’s Carnival. She is repped by CAA, Aperture Entertainment and Sloane Offer.
Read this interesting article from Los Angeles Times about the Bebe and 90210 team clothing line team up!
There’s a new TV/clothing collab on the horizon (Glee and Gossip Girl jumped on that bandwagon long ago, and our own Booth Moore reported on the significant surge in TV/clothing collaborations). Bebe, the retailer who also has produced a line designed by the Kardashian sisters, has teamed up with CBS Consumer Products for a line called “Bebe for 90210” based on the CW show.
With a cast full of hot female leads, 90210 seems like a perfect fit for fashion branding. And the synergy is kicking into full gear by next week when fans of the show will get a sneak peak of a few of the outfits. On Jan. 31, Jessica Stroup, AnnaLynne McCord and Jessica Lowndes will be wearing pieces from the collection on the episode titled, “It’s Getting Hot in Here” and again on the Feb. 7 episode.
The show’s producers, wardrobe team and the Bebe creative team all have contributed to the look of the collection and plan to roll out the line of suiting, blouses, dresses and jumpsuits four times a year.

Embarrassing Confession: We Kinda Love 90210 These Days…and What’s Next Will Blow You Away!
Would you think less of me if I told you that the best TV screeners I’ve seen all month were for the upcoming episodes of the CW’s 90210?
If so, pretend I’m talking about Lost or The Office or something, and try to read on even if you’re not a fan, ’cause although 90210 got off to a slow start, it is kicking some serious (Brazilian butt-lifted) gluteous maximus in its current second season. And it’s only getting better.
Wanna know why you should consider watching again if you haven’t been, and what lies ahead if you’re already a fan?
Jessica Lowndes Sings! Let’s be honest, when audiences were introduced to Adrianna in the 90210 premiere, we were left with a little more than something to be desired. Flash-forward to the middle of season two, and Ade (and Jessica!) have captured our hearts and ears! The girl can certainly belt one out, and we’ll be hearing a lot more of her vocals in coming episodes. In fact, it’s her soon to be ladylove, Gia (Rumer Willis), who convinces her to share her gift with the world—or at the very least, West Beverly High.
But watch out, because her days in the chick band won’t be as carefree as they initially seem. Turns out one of the members is now dating Navid (cute new coupling alert!), and Ade isn’t as over him as she’d like to think. Enter Gia with her declaration of love, and all turns out well. Spoiler Alert! Navid’s new GF is someone we have seen many times before around the 90210 set, just not one of the regulars. Any guesses?
