Jason Priestly Needs Work


Jason Preistly has apparently chosen the groveling route in an attempt to get a role on the new Beverly Hills 90210. Jason has let it be known that he is open to appearing on the spinoff but has yet to be contacted by producers. What that really means is that he really wants to be on the show and will probably be crushed if they don't invite him on.

"They haven't contacted me about doing anything yet. But if it's the right thing, I'm certainly open to it. I loved working on that show. I loved everything I did on it. I had so many different jobs, it was great."

In the same interview he also says he isn't quite ready to appear on Dancing With The Stars. Translation - Wait until this 90210 thing because if I get that job I won't need to do DWTS. If the 90210 people don't call though, then I need to do something to stay visible and if it means DWTS then I will release a statement that says it is something I have always wanted to do and that fans kept begging me to do it until I just couldn't say no anymore.

LOL When I saw the headline over the pic I thought that this was going to be about plastic surgery. Not that I think he looks bad, it's just these days everyone rushes into surgery and you've got people under 30 using Botox. I'm glad to see he still looks normal and doesn't have signs of plastic-surgery face.

there was a lainey BI about a washed up celeb who was considering resorting to DWTS. can't remember the details.

ah, here it is:
Heterosexually attached for a long, long time, he recently faced his
inner gay and admitted the truth. His partner apparently took it well. As well as any woman can under the circumstances. She felt much better when she found out how much of the bank account she was entitled to. And given that he was the one walking, and he is the one who's famous, he's also the one who has to pay. A lot. So now he's broke - relatively speaking. In Hollywood terms, I mean. Lost his job, no work on the horizon, he seriously considered coming out as a way of "reinventing his image", not for gay rights but because he needs the money. Only problem is, he was told over and over again that "no one will care if you're gay". On the flipside, a fake Hollywood romance with a famewhore like Denise Richards for example won't fly either since the ex will flip her sh*t and out her himself, preferring to be passed over for a mo over another woman. Me too! He was encouraged to do Dancing with the Stars but pride got in the way. If things don't turn around, it'll be a last resort next season.

Priestly is currently married to a make-up artist and they have a 1 year old. They're not *publicly* split, but could be privately. Who would care enough to report it?

Plus: The Lifetime series he was in last year was cancelled, he's been in relationships with women most of his adult life. So he fits the clues.

And of course, there's that urban legend about him getting rogered by Jann Wenner.
