Andrew Klavan Finds His Muse

Andrew Klavan, the mastermind behind popular podcasts, horror apps, mystery novels, and screenplays, has finally found his creative muse in a character named Cameron Winter. Winter is the protagonist of Klavan's latest mystery series, and he captures Klavan's creative essence like no other. Winter is a formidable sleuth with a complicated past and a knack for solving even the most stubborn mysteries.

The Latest Winter Mystery: "The House of Love and Death"

In Klavan's third Winter mystery, titled "The House of Love and Death," our hero becomes obsessed with a tragic mass murder that wiped out an entire family, leaving only one lonely child behind. Winter is determined to uncover the truth behind the crime, but local police are skeptical of his unique "strange habit of mind" that often leads him to solve mysteries others can't. The novel delves into themes of decay, decadence, and the role of sin in our lives.

Exclusive Interview with Andrew Klavan

The Hollywood in Toto Podcast recently sat down with Andrew Klavan to discuss his latest book, his thoughts on the current Culture Wars, and much more. Klavan opens up about his writing process, the inspiration behind Cameron Winter, and the cultural issues he tackles in his novels.

Discovering Cameron Winter

When asked about the creation of Cameron Winter, Klavan reflects on his late career and how Winter organically grew from his years of writing. Klavan recalls a pivotal moment in his youth when he read Raymond Chandler's "The Big Sleep" and was captivated by the character of Philip Marlowe. Marlowe's ideal of chivalry in a corrupt world resonated with Klavan, and he wanted to create a character who embodied the same ideals within the context of a crumbling society. Thus, Cameron Winter was born.

The Strange Habit of Mind

Klavan explains that Winter's unique approach to solving crimes stems from a Zen-like habit of mind. Winter lets go of his preconceived notions, opinions, and biases, allowing the facts to float freely in his mind. This approach allows him to tap into the instinctive, soulful exploration of humanity, going beyond mere rationality and embracing the spiritual side of being a human being. Winter is not just an intellectual crime solver but a fully realized, multidimensional character.

Cultural Issues in "The House of Love and Death"

Klavan discusses his approach to incorporating cultural issues into his novels. He emphasizes that he does not write politically or push any specific agenda. Instead, he takes inspiration from the world we live in and pushes it slightly further down the road in his books. In "The House of Love and Death," Klavan explores themes of decay, decadence, and the erosion of ideals in a society on the brink of collapse. These themes emerge naturally within the story and become integral plot points.

What happened to Rose from ’90 Day Fiancé?’

Several reality TV stars have emerged from TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé, but perhaps there has been no bigger name than “Big Ed” Brown. But, what happened to his ex-partner, Rose Vega — the first woman he was attached to in the franchise?

Big Ed and Rose hit our television screens as notables in season 4’s Before the 90 Days. The fan-favorite iteration was released in 2020 and featured Ed, who lives in California, traveling and staying with Rose in her native Philippines. Although there was a 31-year age gap and stark cultural difference, the two pursued love while becoming 90 Day Fiancé’s most talked-about couple.

The two had met online but never interacted in life — but that changed when they signed on to the reality show. We watched them embrace in person for the first time and witnessed how over the moon Ed was about ending his decades-long single streak with the mother-of-one. Big Ed rapidly became a beloved cast member, but that wasn’t as true with Rose. She faced a lot of criticism from the community because of the assumption she was only interested in Big Ed because of money and the potential of United States citizenship.

Regardless, things went up in flames after Big Ed revealed to Rose that he didn’t want any more children and had his eyes set on a vasectomy. The Filipino dumped Big Ed, which kickstarted the latter’s appearances in several more franchise seasons. But, that was the last we saw of Rose on the reality TV show.

Since then, Rose has continued living in The Philippines while leveraging her online star power. She’s active on several platforms and boasts over 500 thousand followers on Instagram and 750 thousand subscribers on YouTube. On Instagram, Rose frequently posts photos of herself around Asia and with her son, Prince. And she also occasionally drops a nod to 90 Day Fiancé via memes and throwbacks.

She’s posted around 20 video blogs on YouTube within the last year featuring her shopping and going to a concert, among other things. Besides monetizing through these avenues, Rose has merchandise and a Cameo profile.

On her website, “Rose Vega Store,” she sells accessories and clothes like hoodies and crewnecks. Some products have roses on them, while others sport Filipino words and expressions. As mentioned, fans of Rose’s can also find her on Cameo where she charges $30 for a shout-out video.

Although Rose has left the reality television limelight, she’s leaned into the opportunity it afforded her by creating content and selling merch. And for Ed? Well, he’s still traversing the ups and downs of love as a 90 Day Fiancé staple.

Tori Spelling Poses With ‘90210’ Costars Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley

Tori Spelling was all smiles as she posed with former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars Brian Austin Green and Jason Priestley.

Alongside a snap of the trio placing their arms around each other, Spelling, 50, wrote via Instagram on Sunday, April 14, “It’s a Donna sandwich. And, we are in Pittsburgh so don’t hold the pickles. @brianaustingreen @jason_priestley.”

The teen drama series, which debuted on Fox in October 1990 and ran for 10 seasons until May 2000, followed the Walsh Family as they transitioned from the Midwest to Beverly Hills. Teenage twins, Brandon (Priestley) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) made a new circle of friends at West Beverly Hills High School, including Donna Martin (Spelling) and David Silver (Green).

The franchise has since had many spinoffs through the years, including Melrose Place and BH90210, which premiered in 2019 and featured several OG cast members. (Ahead of the series premiere, Luke Perry died at the age of 52 after suffering a massive stroke in March 2019.)

'Beverly Hills, 90210’ Cast: Where Are They Now?

“We are all so excited to go back to work together because it’s like family coming back together,” Spelling exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2019 about the project, which ultimately was canceled after one season.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 former costars have remained close friends through the years. In February 2021, Priestley, 54, Green, 50, and Ian Ziering (who portrayed Steve Sanders) reunited for lunch in Sherman Oaks, California. The actors were seen sharing laughs and talking while sitting together in photos published by E! News at the time.

While the cast members may look back at their time filming the series fondly, Priestley shared that his daughter Ava couldn’t help but mock his fashion choices. (Jason shares his daughter with wife Naomi Lowde-Priestley, whom he tied the knot with in 2005. The pair also share son Dashiell, 14.)

“My daughter for a while wanted to watch episodes of the show, but only wanted to watch them with me so she could make fun of me,” Jason said of his 16-year-old during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Mark in January. “My flip phone, my mom jeans — all the stuff. She thought it was hilarious.”

Cohost Kelly Ripa then asked Jason if he ever gets noticed at his kids’ schools. “Not really, because I kind of look like Brandon’s dad now,” Jason quipped.

Ripa, 53, reassured him, “That’s not true. You look just like Brandon, I would know.”
