Hi, this Natalie. If I had to narrow down when I became addicted to pop culture and TV, hands down it would be when I tuned into dun-a-nun-a-nunt-na-na Beverly Hills 90210. I became obsessed with all things 90210 and carried that addiction over to other dramas and sitcoms. Parlaying my love of writing and TV watching with a blogging gig at MTV and entertainment and pop culture writer for Regal Magazine. You can follow me @forevergoode
