Following in the provocative footsteps of her mother Demi Moore, Rumer Willis will expand her small reoccuring role as Gia when she steams up the CW’s 90210 with a same-sex plotline in January.
Willis will play a lesbian who has a relationship with Jessica Lowndes’ character Adrianna. Rumors of the plot line have been circulating all summer and now producers are finally coming clean with the details.
“This isn’t a fling,” insists executive producer Rebecca Sinclair. “We’re coming at this [relationship] from a genuine place and not going, Let’s do a titillating story that will grab some promotion. This is a real aspect of teenager life that’s interesting, And there’s been a real void in the 90210 universe in terms of gay and bisexual characters.”
