ENDOMETRIOSIS ON BEVERLY HILLS 90210 & SILK STALKINGS
Growing up, I was a huge fan of the original 90210 series and Silk Stalkings. (I couldn’t even go to school the next day after Chris died in the 5th season of Silk Stalkings). So when I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, I freaked out. I could only think about how the disease was explained when both Kelly Taylor and Rita Lance were diagnosed with the disease. On BH 90210, Kelly was told that she was probably infertile (which the remake of 90210 seemed to have forgotten when she showed up with a son). On Silk Stalkings, they said it was an infection of the Uterus which my doctor quickly told me was wrong. But the show did have one thing right, “it is all the pain of a pregnancy with none of the fun.” So today I came across clips on youtube, exactly the way I remembered them.
