Six Degrees of Separation fro Kevin Bacon: The Girls of Beverly Hills 90210

She was only on "Beverly Hills 90210" for a few episodes after she was fired from the show (?!), but we have decided to put two-time Oscar winner Hillary Swank (pictured bottom) on this select list of female stars of the teenage or tweenage soap opera which ran for 10 years and 292 episodes.

For this entry, we are looking at how many degrees of separation each actress is away from Kevin Bacon. And, as to not offend, blog readers in Algeria, Dubai and Pakistan, we have halal bacon (yes, we are not making up!) as out center image.

Let's start with Tori Spelling (pictured top), she is two degrees separated from the star of the original "Footloose" as was in the film "Sol Goode" (2003) with Octavia Spencer who was in "Beauty Shop" (2005) with Bacon.

Or 'fellow Turkish-American' (well, she is like one-eighth Turkish) Tiffani Thiessen is also two degrees removed as she was in "Ladies Man" (2000) with Julianne Moore who was in "Crazy Stupid Love" (2011) with Bacon.

Shannen Doherty, one of the anchor stars of '90210,' was in "Night Shift" (1982) with Clint Howard, who was the brother of that film's director Ron Howard, and Clint was in the tear-jerker "My Dog Skip" (2000) with Bacon.

Lastly, Swank was in "P.S. I Love You," which is NOT one of the films she Oscared for with Harry Connick Jr. who was also in "My Dog Skip" with (you guessed it) Kevin Bacon!
