When the CW decided to cancel "90210" after five years, they alerted the press -- but forgot to inform one important group of people: the cast. "It was a shocker," AnnaLynne McCord said of finding out -- via Twitter! -- that the show that made her a star was heading off the air. Ouch! At least if we get the boot, millions of people don't find out before us.
