Looks like Dixon won't be the only 90210 character to get involved with a cougar this winter.
Multiple sources confirm that Kelly Lynch will appear on the show in early 2010. She'll play Laurel, an older, pot-smoking woman that gets involved with Ryan Matthews.
The character will possess a history of sleeping with rock stars and celebrities, but that isn't the news that will throw Ryan for a loop: she's also the mother of one of his students!
Lynch most recently enjoyed a multi-episode run on The L Word. Guess this means Ryan and Jen will soon call it quits. Thank goodness!
