90210 Secrets, Revealed: Jason Priestley Is Writing A Memoir

Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

For those of us who lived through the nineties as pre-teens and teens, any news about the cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 is hugely relevant to life. All life. So that's why we're so thrilled to report that Jason Priestley, who played Brandon on the show, will be writing a memoir. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Priestley, 43, will "touch on his personal life, his 2002 car crash and his five-day stint in jail for drunken driving in 2000." He'll also, of course, dish about the show, which, let's be real, is the only reason anyone's going to buy the book. Not that we don't care.

Priestley reportedly got a six-figure advance for the tome, so we can only assume that there are some juicy, juicy details in there.

Today reports that the book will be published by HarperCollinsPublishers imprint HarperOne. Mark Tauber, HarperOne's SVP and publisher, told the site that, "We pride ourselves in publishing incredible stories of personal growth, perseverance and success...Jason has an amazing story, and we're thrilled to help him share it."
