Tori Spelling responds to Jessica Alba's 90210 'no eye contact' claim

Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are setting the record straight amid claims people weren’t allowed to look the show’s cast in the eye on set.

As the show celebrated its 30 year anniversary last week, fans were shocked to learn that Jessica Alba was given a strange rule during her time as a guest star in 1998.

The actress claimed that she had been told not to make eye contact with the show’s top stars including the likes of Jennie and Tori.

Reacting to the news on their new podcast 9021OMG, Jennie stated: ‘Tori, did you, I just need to know, did you tell her not to look me in the eye?’

Tori then replied: ‘Why is it all about you?’

Jennie recalled being the one who had the most scenes with Jessica’s character Leanne.

The 48-year-old explained: ‘Like, if anybody was, you know, didn’t want to have their eyes looked into, it would have been me. But, I don’t remember because I have the world’s worst memory.’

Tori then suggested that it might have been a ‘memo that was, like, going around from the producers or the ADs and we didn’t even know.’

Either way, Jennie made it clear that she has nothing but love for Honey star Jessica.

She gushed: ‘I only have, from the vague memories I have of working with her, I only remember her being super talented.

‘She was very young. She was really sweet, and it does not surprise me that she’s gone on to be so successful.’

And the actress is also a big fan on Jessica’s brand, The Honest Company, as she continued: ‘I’m not going to lie to you guys: I was a little horrified when I saw that clip that she said that she wasn’t allowed to make eye contact and she had an awful experience because her baby wipes are my favorite.

‘Like, I wipe my child’s ass with her baby wipes every single day. I’m so upset right now.’
