Beverly Hills, 90210 Stars Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, and Joe E. Tata Reunite on Mystery Girls: Picture
"Look who hired the #MysteryGirls this week…" Spelling wrote beside the adorable selfie, with Tata sandwiched between herself and Garth. "It's Nat from The Peach Pit!" The True Tori star, of course, was referring to Tata's role on their smash '90s show. Tata, now 77, had a recurring role on 90210 as Nat Bussichio, owner of the popular Peach Pit diner. Tata later reprised his role as Nat on CW's reboot of 90210 in its first season.

Spelling, 41, and Garth, 42, who have remained besties since the original series ended in 2000, are executive producers and costars on the upcoming ABC Family comedy show Mystery Girls. The premise of the 30-minute sitcom is centered around two former TV show detective stars who reunite, decades later, over a real-life mystery.
Garth plays Charlie Contour, a suburban housewife and mom, while Spelling plays Holly Hamilton, who longs to return to her TV star glory days. Speaking with Us Weekly last Friday, the actresses expressed their excitement about reuniting onscreen.
"When we put this together, it felt like it would be right," Spelling told Us. "It felt like a no-brainer. I mean, we're friends in real life—we've been friends for years. We did a dramatic series for 10 years, but we've never done comedy together."
Though their past joint comedic experiences have been sparse, the two share a real-life dynamic that's translated perfectly in their new show. "I feel like we do comedy in our real lives," Garth told Us. "When the cameras are not rolling, we [still do] comedy. We're just hilarious together."
Turning to Spelling, she said to her fellow blonde, "You make me laugh harder than anybody I’ve ever known. Like you make me laugh until I almost pee my pants!"
