Selma Blair‘s IG post with Sarah Michelle Gellar is very sweet.

-The rumoured 90201 “reboot” is not actually a reboot or revival after all. As it’s currently being shopped around, it’s actually an hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy that would find former 90210 cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing themselves which — maybe let’s just not?

-This is an interesting look at how Tom Cruise‘s wedding to Katie Holmes changed how people view Scientology.
