tvd dinner lexi 'Vampire Diaries' star Arielle Kebbel heads to '90210' for some loveOne of our many dearly departed “Vampire Diaries” favorites, Arielle Kebbel is headed for some sunny weather.

Kebbel’s character, Lexi, was killed in Season 1 of “The Vampire Diaries,” much to everyone’s dismay, but we’ll get to see much more of the actress when she hits LA in a recurring “90210” gig, as first reported by TV Guide.

She’ll play Vanessa, a girl with a rather, uh, promiscuous past who still, occasionally finds herself making risky choices… some of which apparently direct her into the arms of one of “90210’s” leading men. No word on which West Bev grad she’ll be romancing, but we can expect to see Vanessa’s first appearance in early December.

Fans will also remember Kebbel from a brief stint on “Life Unexpected” as Kerr Smith’s here-comes-trouble sister. Obviously, we will forever think of her as Dean’s (Jared Padalecki) too-young wife on “Gilmore Girls.” (Poor Lindsay, never had a chance.)
