Ian Ziering’s Debut As A Chippendale Dancer And The End Of The World

The last time we checked in with 90210 star Ian Ziering, he was launching his own “personal cosmetics” line, whatever that means. In describing the company, Ziering said “as an actor, you know that every act has a closing curtain,” and “I’m always looking for additional revenue streams.” It seemed like a bummer at the time, but that was before Ian Ziering announced that he was joining the Chippendales dancers. That seemed like an even bigger bummer. But neither of those bummers are as big as the bummer that is photos of Ian Ziering AS a Chippendale dancer. Make no mistake: he looks healthy. No one is saying that Ian Ziering doesn’t look healthy. And you have to applaud him doing what he loves: finding new revenue streams. But, like, that face he is making? And just the overall feeling of despair that comes with imagining the course his life took between the end of 90210 and this moment? Oh, I’m sure there were some good years in there somewhere, and I bet he sees this newest development as another success in a life built out of one incredible success after the other. But, just, sometimes you need to lie down, you know? Sometimes you think, OK, enough is enough, we gave it our best shot, we really did, but now it is time to turn off the lights and lock up the doors because this world is Closed For Business. Thank you again to all of our customers and we couldn’t have done it without you, but at a certain point you have to admit that it’s simply not working anymore. Good luck to whatever comes next. We just hope that you can learn from our mistakes. (Via Dlisted.)
