The CW has confirmed to Access Hollywood that Willis will play a lesbian in at least one episode of the show’s upcoming season, which starts September 8.
Her character, Gia, is “a punky cute lesbian who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.”
Gia will be a part of the Blaze News crew with 90210 regulars Navid (Michael Steger), Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Silver (Jessica Stroup).
Andrea Zuckerman would be so proud.
While a “punky cute lesbian” may be a bit of a cliché, Willis certainly has the look down. And hopefully this lesbian will fare a bit better than the one played by Sara Melson in the original 90210, who suffered serious burns after she was barely rescued by Kelly from a fire.
At least we know that Willis already has done some “rehearsing.”
What do you think? Is Willis a good choice to bring a bit of Sapphistry to the BH ZIP code? Any ideas about who’ll she’ll hook up with?
