Former “Beverly Hills, 90210” stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are reuniting.

The actresses will co-star and executive produce the new ABC Family series “Mystery Girls.”

Spelling and Garth will play Holly and Charlie, former co-stars of a popular ’90s crime-solving series. Spelling’s Holly opens a detective agency and persuades Charlie, now a suburban mom, to help.

Spelling and Garth remained on the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” for its entire 10 seasons.

Garth was featured on the first two seasons of the recent CW “90210” spinoff while Spelling guest-starred in two episodes.

Ron Burgundy to pitch Chrysler

Ferrell plays fictional television anchorman Ron Burgundy in a number of Chrysler TV ads that will run through the end of the year.

Ferrell is the star of the 2004 movie “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” He’ll play Burgundy again in a sequel that’s due out in December.

Scarlett Johansson ‘Sexiest’ again

Seven years after being named Esquire magazine’s sexiest woman alive, Scarlett Johansson has earned the title for a second time.

Johansson, who also won in 2006, is the first woman to get the honor twice. Last year’s winner was Mila Kunis.

Johansson jokingly tells the magazine she’s “gotta hustle” and “pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop.”

The 28-year-old actress is also off-the-market. She recently went public with her engagement to former French journalist Romain Dauriac. It will be her second marriage. She split from Ryan Reynolds in 2010.
