Plus, Shenae tells HollywoodLife.com about her ‘amazing’ reunion with on-screen mom Lori Loughlin.
The fifth season premiere of 90210 is going to be a big one for the Wilson family — and not just because we’ll finally learn how Dixon (Tristan Wilds) is faring after his seemingly fatal car accident. The Oct. 8 episode also features the return of Lori Loughlin as Mama Wilson, and Shenae Grimes told HollywoodLife.com she couldn’t be more excited to have (almost) the whole Wilson clan back together.
We caught up with Shenae at the Tracy Reese Spring 2013 show Sept. 9 during New York Fashion Week, and she was quick to sing her on-screen mom’s praises.
“[Having her back was] so amazing, I can’t even tell you,” she said. “I’m Lori Loughlin’s biggest fan. She’s such a graceful woman. She’s the epitome of professionalism, and she’s always such an amazing person to be around. So I was so, so happy to have her back. I’ve missed her!”
And it sounds like Deb will be much happier with her daughter’s behavior this season, as Shenae promises a total 180 for Annie — at least as far as her love life is concerned.
“[It will be] very active, as always, but not nearly as crazy as last year; thank God!” Shenae told us. “It’s cute, cute stuff all around; I’m really excited about it.”
The “cute stuff” Shenae was referring to, of course, was Annie’s relationship with Riley Smith‘s wheelchair-bound character.
What do you hope to see Annie do in season five, 90210 fans? Are you excited for her new relationship, or would you rather she get back with Liam? Watch a promo for the upcoming season below, then drop a comment with your hopes and predictions.
