I thought I was the only one who had been watching the new 90210 and thinking, "Man, I wish these girls would eat a sandwich." Apparently, I'm not.
According to the new issue of Us Weekly, the show's stars Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup are so ridiculously thin, that producers and castmates are extremely worried.
"They want the girls to gain weight," a show source told the mag. "They are trying too hard to be skinny, and it's started to wear on them. It's just not healthy."
So, how skinny are they? Well, Jessica, who plays Silver, is an estimated 5-foot-8 and weighs 100 to 105 pounds, while Shenae, who plays Annie, is guessed to be around 5-foot-3 and tips the scales at a whopping 90 pounds. Um, yuck.
"I've never seen Jessica or Shenae eat," a different set-side source said. While another insider said that the girls' male castmates are ready to take action."I heard some of the boys on the show are going to sit down with the girls and talk to them. The girls were all skinny when they started, but they're definitely thinner now."
I worry about the teenaged girls who are watching this show. We don't want our kids thinking this is the norm, or healthy, or what they should strive to look like.
