90210 Stars: Too Thin For TV?

90210 Stars: Too Thin For TV?

Two of the stars of the new 90210 take the latest cover of Us Weekly.

The mag claims that two of the show’s lead actresses, Shenae Grimes (left) and Jessica Stroup (right), are too thin for TV. Shenae (est. 90 lbs) and Jessica (est. 100 lbs) have reportedly been ordered to gain weight and their costars are planning an intervention since some of them have “never seen them eat”.

Entertainment Weekly also poses a very, very similar question in one of their latest articles: “Are the skinny starlets of 90210 setting a bad example?”

One casting agent who works frequently with The CW reveals to the mag, “I know in discussions at ABC and CBS that ‘too skinny’ is no good. They talk about it as a minus point. But at The CW it’s a different story. They’re trying to pull in the Gossip Girl audience and that’s the image: hyper-skinny models.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the 90210 starlets — TOO THIN or JUST RIGHT?

i totally agree! these girls look like their anorexic! its disgusting! atleast on shows like gossip girl and one tree hill the girls are a normal size. the chicks on this show are waaaaayyy to skinny. plus they suck at acting

# 2

# 3

Too skinny! I remember thinking that when the very first episode came out and noticed again last night. I know some people are naturally that small but it seems like thats the only ‘type’ casted.

ugh some people are skinny!!! not every girl has this perfect body thats all big ass and huge tits …im boney and thats how i look .im happy these girls are on television maybe people wil give us boney girls a freaking break…..

I have to agree with the article. I remember watching the first episode and was distracted mainly by how thin the girls are. I think they are both very beautiful girls but they need to put on some weight not mainly coz of the bad influence on teens but for their health. I hope there friends and family will help them. Being slim is not bad but skinny to the point of bones is not healthy. I wish them both well.

Definitely too thin. It’s not a good image to set to impressionable teens who could be of a healthy size but are swayed into thinking otherwise.

Let’s not jump to the conclusion that they have a eating problem, because I know people (guys included) who eat healthily but still can’t seem to put on any weight.

too thin!!! i would hope that someone would do an intervention and make them eat. i saw a comparison with the 90210 of the 90s and everyone was at least 20 lbs heavier than the kids of the show now. and they were thin for that time. its very anti girl or woman and anti the dove campaign.

“They’re trying to pull in the Gossip Girl audience and that’s the image: hyper-skinny models.”
I don’t agree with what the guy say about GG because they are not too thin yes they are skinny but in my opinion they are healthy skinny , the only girl in GG that is thin is Jenny and I think that’s her normal anatomy, this girls in the other side are very skinny ,every time that I see them I think they are going to break.

TTo thin for sure! Ew!

Im not really sure about Jessica, but Shenae has always been skinny.

i’m thin too and have often been told to ‘eat a sandwich’ or something but you do NOT see my ribs and bones protruding out and my face is not sunk in like the girl on the right. it’s disgusting that people think it’s GOOD that people look like this on television. there is a big difference between being naturally thin and snorting coke/not eating thin (#11). if you see someones chest bones and collar bones sticking out…something is wrong and i’m sick of this weight being celebrated in Hollywood.

um the GG cast are not skinny all the girls have healthy bodies but the 90210 cast are really skinny shenae not that mush becasue of her height the jessica girl legs look like twigs!

They likely photoshopped the one with the dark hair. I don’t think she’s THAT skinny. Shanae is small, but I don’t think she’s tskinny…just small. She’s a *****, yes, but not that skinny.

The girl on the left looks fine. The girl on the right, though, looks too thin.

If they’re naturally think, ok, it’s not easy for some people to put on some weight, but if they’re starving themselves to be this thin it’s horrible and they don’t look good or sexy. At all

both are way thinner then they used to be… especially jessica she likes like a different person and looks doesn’t look healthy. it’s one thing to look healthy but she just doesn’t

:|
my god i never noticed how thin Jessica Stroup is!
thats crazy!!
but you know some people are just naturally thin
im probably like Shenae.i only weight 96lbs and im 18…i have pretty good eating habits too.so yeah

i think they should switch the est. weight….i’m thinkin Jessica is around 90lbs….she’s got no fat or muscle on her (gross)..at least the other one has some muscular legs. People also need to pay attention to the height when determining their weight. I am very short (4’11) and very fit..so 95 lbs is perfectly healthy for me.
