Dr. 90210 cast now includes Big Brother’s Will Kirby

E!’s plastic surgery docudrama Dr. 90210 has a new, familiar cast member: Will Kirby, winner of Big Brother 2 and a cast member on Big Brother 7. The first episode airs Sunday at 6 p.m. ET and Monday at 1 p.m., with the second episode debuting Monday at 10 in the show’s regular timeslot.

In his characteristically humble and shy fashion, Will told Us Weekly, “I bring a more youthful element to the show. A lot of the [featured] doctors tend to be concerned with things like how their kids are going to do in school and re-doing their kitchen … that’s great but that doesn’t have anything to do with my life. My life has a lot more to do with dating, having fun and partying in the Hollywood scene.”

But he’s also realistic about the difference between his appearance on this show and the CBS competition. “I don’t define myself by that crappy reality show, I define myself by a brand new crappy reality show!” he said, not mentioning the third crappy reality show he appeared on.

And lest we think he’s begun to change his arrogant approach to life, he said, “Let’s not kid ourselves here. I’m the most egotistical person I know, but I think it’s important to have a doctor who is very confident.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
