Denise Richards appeared in the original edition of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” so hitting the set of The CW’s version to play a rich socialite felt full circle to the actress.

“Yes, it did,” Denise told Access Hollywood at the show’s 100th episode party on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Denise will play Gwen on the show, a wealthy woman set to enter the life of AnnaLynne McCord’s Naomi Clark.

“I would call her very materialistic, very self-confident,” Denise told Access of her character. “I wouldn’t say she’s mean, she has a little attitude, she’s a little sassy, which I like. It’s fun.”

The actress said her character has some similarities to AnnaLynne’s Naomi.

“My character is the president of a very elite ladies club and AnnaLynne’s character, Naomi, is trying to get into that club. I think my character is a lot like Naomi — an older version,” she said.

Denise will appear in the show’s 100th episode, which airs in December on The CW.

“I was very excited when they asked me to be part of their 100th episode. It’s a fun episode,” she said.

Season 5 of “90210” premieres Monday, October 8 at 8/7c on The CW.
