Beverly Hills, 90210 Nostalgia Not What It Used to Be

Just a few months ago, the Hermosa Beach home used for exterior beach house shots on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 TV series was on the market for $10.5 million. Now, per Zillow blogger Erika Ziggs, it can be yours for $8.99 mill.

Given the fact that this is the home is where Tori Spelling‘s character Donna Martin lost her her virginity, you’d think Monday’s Twitter news of the actress’ real-life third pregnancy would boost resale value, not puncture it. But the celebrity housing bubble is apparently not quite as impervious to the overall downturn in Hermosa Beach 90254.

Maybe former co-star Shannen Doherty‘s 40th birthday on Tuesday helped cast a pall over the property’s market value. After all, it’s getting harder and harder to pretend-party like it’s the 1990s.

But really, FishbowlLA’s favorite BH90210 flashback media moment of the week has to be a Wednesday morning radio interview with Spelling. Per her tweet: “OMG doing radio interview & he asked HOW MY DAD is doing? Is he kidding? How embarrassing. Wow…”
