FIRST CONTACT


Trevor Donovan used the internet to talk to me, and things will never be the same.

Twitter is absolutely fascinating to me. It's becoming the most direct form of social networking (aside from talking to someone, I guess), and for better or worse - it brings celebs closer to their fans than ever before. Twitter changed my world last week, and I'm shocked/delighted to report that it had to do with my favorite 32-year old high school senior.


Trevor Donovan, of
90210 and abs, tweets a lot. They're usually always entertaining, and Thursday was no exception. Someone apparently asked him what motivates him when he goes running, and I couldn't help but chime in:



I carried on with my day, and less than an hour later, my phone buzzed that I had a direct message on Twitter. I let slip a low shriek at my desk when I saw that it was from none other than Trevor Donovan himself:


You guys, this is huge. Not only did I make him laugh, but I did so to the point that he was compelled to message me about it. Now it's only a matter of time before life imitates art, and he comes looking for me...right?

I don't think I'll ever look at those letters repeated four times the same way, ever again.


I mean, seriously. Could you?

For those of you actually keeping up with 90210, TrevDon is doing a pretty fantastic job with his character's coming out storyline. He still goes missing for entire episodes now and then, sure - but there are evil gurus to vanquish and guest stars like Snoop Dogg that require screen time. The BevNiner is a busy place.


The writers haven't forgotten about him, though! While Teddy's first whatever Ian is all but a distant memory, we've already met his new love interest - the infinitely hotter soccer jock Marco (Freddie Smith, above left).

And since this is The CW, there's some ridiculously attractive crossover! Alan Ritchson (above right) played Aquaman on the walking corpse known as Smallville, and also does quite a bit of modeling in his underwear...or less. Soon he'll be having his own m4m run-in with Teddy in Mexico, when the Spring Break episode kicks off the tail-end of season 3 on April 18th. Bring it on.

I'm officially on TrevDon's radar, and it's a great place to be! Turns out laughter can also be an aphrodisiac.
