In Tuesday’s episode, Brenda (Shannen Doherty) still tries to save her cracked out drama queen, Kellie (Jennie Garth) ditches the hot teacher (Ryan Eggold) for her baby daddy Dylan, and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) tries to bring her parents back together.

Here are Blindie’s Top Ten moments:

1. Drama queen Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) gets an intervention by the school administrators, but instead she turns on Brenda and says she doesn’t want to end up like her–a drama school director.

2. Debbie (Lori Loughlin) finally gets some screen time, as she shoots a fashion show for NYLON magazine.

3. Navid (Michael Steger) is back! He warns Dixon (Tristan Wilds) that he doesn’t want to be third wheel to him and Silver (Jessica Stroup). He even asks Dixon if he can ask Annie out.

4. Dylan calls Brenda..and she passes the phone to Kelly! “If Dylan wanted to talk to you, why is he calling Brenda?” the hot lit teacher inquires.

5. Scary skinny Silver is asked if she’s want to model by an agent who wants to get in her pants. Dixon goes on to punch him out. He calls Dixon a “thug” and a “Compton Kid” and asks his mom “Who’s the baby daddy?”

6. Naomi asks her dad’s mistress out to dinner only to tell her that her parents are still shacking up.

7. A film producer, who saw Annie in Spring Awakening, invites her to read for her cheerleader slasher film. Later, Adrianna nearly bitch slaps Annie when she suspects that Annie is spying on her for her principal pop!

8. Kellie is jealous..just like the old days! “I guess old habits die hard with you don’t they?” an envious Kellie asks Brenda of her going to the fashion show with the lit teacher.

9. Brenda tells the hot lit teacher that he “dodged a bullet” by not dating Kellie, who ends up leaving to visit Dylan. Snap! And then he’s all into her at the fashion show and gives her a ride home.

10. Naomi, who’s sick over her parents’ fake marriage, and Ethan (Dustin Milligan), who wants Annie, who decides to be single, and Ty (Adam Gregory), who wants to bone Annie–all decide to be just friends!

Salon.com urges its readers to “refresh our collective memory” and recognize that before MTV and the invention of music videos and pandering to suburbia, “Black Americans invented rock ‘n’ roll.”

The columnist, James Hannaham, writes that “there hasn’t been a great mostly black rock band since Sly and Funkadelic–until TV on the Radio.”

Praising the Brooklyn band, the writer says they’ve “released three albums’ worth of stirring, modern and inventive alternative rock, integrating elements as diverse as electronica, guitar atmospherics and doo-wop soul vocals that recall both Peter Gabriel and the Brothers Johnson.”

This only validates and solidifies Blindie’s love for TV on the Radio!

The guys (Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick) of Gossip Girl appear on the November 2008 cover of Details magazine, where among many things, Crawford says he’s gotta “overcome gayface!”

“Model turned actor, dime a dozen, eye candy, doesn’t know what he’s doing … and Perez Hilton says I have ‘gayface,'” Crawford tells the mag. “So on top of everything else, I have to overcome gayface.”

In addition, our fave Gossip Guy, the deliciously snarky Brit Ed Westwick says he stole his WASPy accent from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

“There’s a slight thing in Carlton Banks,” Westwick says, “that kind of ├╝ber-preppy, that I did pick up on.”
