The “Beverly Hill, 90210” star made the split announcement on Instagram Thursday with a “heavy heart.”
“With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart,” Ziering, 55, wrote. “She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids.”
“Any quote attributed to me is completely false and solely meant by haters to undermine our intention to continue to get along, protect and raise our daughters, and be examples of successful co-parents,” he added. “We ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time as we focus on what is important to us, our girls.”
There will be no more BH90210 on Fox as the network has opted not to order another installment.
BH90210 , featuring most of the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210, had been billed as a six-episode comedy event series. Yet, in success, the expectation was that it would go to multiple seasons.
“We are so proud to have reunited in a very special summer event one of the network’s legacy series and casts with 90210 fans across the country,” Fox said in a statement. “Profound thanks to and respect for Brian, Gabrielle, Ian, Jason, Jennie, Shannen and Tori, who, along with the entire crew and everyone at Fox and CBS Television Studios, poured their hearts and souls into this truly inventive and nostalgic revival.”
Jason Priestley is still grieving the death of his close friend Luke Perry as the one year anniversary of the actor’s death approaches.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 50, spoke about Perry at the iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO event on Saturday, admitting that Perry’s death is still “pretty raw.”
“I was at another memorial service today, and it made me think a lot about Luke, and a lot about losing Luke, and it was a very stark reminder of the tragedy that befell us all,” Priestley said. “It was only eight months ago. So, it is something that is always very close to me, and I think that everyday that goes by, the more time that passes, the easier it gets to manage — but it is still something that is pretty raw.”
The Riverdale star was hospitalized after suffering a massive stroke on Feb. 27, 2019. He died five days later on March 4 at age 52. A source told PEOPLE Perry never regained consciousness.
Perry was best known for playing Dylan McKay on the hit TV series Beverly Hills, 90210 — costarring with Priestley from 1990-95 and again in 1998 until 2000.
As Billie Eilish finished paying tribute to the stars who passed away in 2019 during last night’s In Memoriam Oscars segment, fans of 1990s icon Luke Perry were stunned to see that the Beverly Hills, 90210 leading man wasn’t included.
Initially, people assumed that Perry’s absence from the honors was just an oversight by Oscar producers. After all, the actor—who died last March after suffering a stroke—is known worldwide and starred in a number of films, not to mention that his last role was in Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 Best Picture nominee Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. A statement provided to E! News by the Academy instead implies that, based on time and other considerations, a committee decided that Perry didn’t make the cut.
“The Academy receives hundreds of requests to include loved ones and industry colleagues in the Oscars In Memoriam segment,” a representative wrote. “An executive committee representing every branch considers the list and makes selections for the telecast based on limited available time.”
Other snubbed deceased included Disney’s Cameron Boyce, The Carol Burnett Show legend Tim Conway, and action/horror star Sid Haig, most famous for Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses trilogy.
The Academy assures fans that Perry and Boyce will at least be remembered online…for a while anyway: “All the submissions are included on Oscar.com and will remain on the site throughout the year. Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce are remembered in the Oscar.com gallery.”
