A Kinda '90210' Reunion, Minus Tori

Shannen Doherty, restart your engine.
The vixen, 31, along with Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth and Gabrielle Carteris, are due to reunite as West Beverly Class of '93 graduates for "Beverly Hills, 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion."
That's the working title for a FOX special to be broadcast during sweeps on Sunday, May 11, Zap2it.com reports.
Also reportedly joining in will be James Eckhouse and Carol Potter, who played Brandon and Brenda's parents -- although this will not be a dramatic special. Rather, it will consist of a series of interviews.
Tori Spelling, the daughter of series producer Aaron Spelling (and who reportedly had a falling-out with Doherty on "90210"), does not appear to be participating in the reunion, though her rep tells the New York Post that there's no bad blood involved. Tori, 29, has simply moved on to other projects, said the rep.
And in other pop TV news, Erika Christensen, who played a high school stalker in last year's "Swimfan" and Michael Douglas's drug-addicted teen daughter in 2000's "Traffic," will star as Cate in an MTV musical version of the classic gothic Emily Bronte novel "Wuthering Heights," the Associated Press reports. (Cathy was the name in the book, and in the beloved 1939 movie with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon).
Mike Vogel will play a homeless musician named Heath, with whom Cate falls in love, and "Malcolm in the Middle " actor Chris Masterson will play Edward, whom Cate agrees to marry instead. (Heath must be short for Heathcliff. Edward, at least, is being retained.)
Production is scheduled to begin in May in Puerto Rico, said MTV, with an airdate slated for later this year.
