Mystery Girls: Old Friends Together Again

Mon, 07/07/2014 - 17:29
By: Alicia Broadway As a woman of a particular age, I watched the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” from start to finish. So when I heard that Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth) and Donna Martin (Tori Spelling) were in a new series together, my TiVo was tasked with recording one more new show. ABC Family’s “Mystery Girls” reteams Garth and Spelling as former TV show detectives turned real-life detectives, and I love this idea. It was with this thought I started to put together a list of former costars I would like Continue Reading
