‘Power’ star La La Anthony has been cast in a recurring role on Fox’s six-episode summer drama series ‘BH90210,’ playing the wife of original ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ co-star Brian Austin Green.
She is the first non-“90210” original to officially join the cast of the new series.

“90210” is described as a serialized drama — with a dose of irreverence — inspired by the real lives and relationships of Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling.
Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, the septet — who will play heightened versions of themselves — reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a “Beverly Hills, 90210” reboot up and running.
Anthony, 39, will portray Green’s wife, Shay, a superstar hip-hop/pop artist. She is breadwinner of the family while her Mr. Mom husband watches over their three kids. Shay has become used to being the center of attention, but can still be surprisingly down to earth.
Per the series’ premise of drawing inspiration from original “Beverly Hills, 90210? stars’ real lives and relationships, Green, 45, is married to Hollywood star Megan Fox, with whom he has three sons.
In the “Beverly Hills, 90210” finale Green’s character David married Spelling’s Donna though in the CW’s followup series “90210,” Donna revealed that she and David had separated shortly after the birth of her daughter.
“BH90210” is the most anticipated new series to come out of the broadcast upfronts earlier this month, with its trailer drawing the most views by a mile.
Hopefully this casting doesn’t mean ‘90210’ is filled its diversity quota. It’s 2019 — let’s hope the series comes correct!
