90210’s Christine Elise apologizes to Jessica Alba after slamming her as ‘f***king insane’ after harsh claim about show
BEVERLY Hills, 90210 star Christine Elise apologized to Jessica Alba after slamming the actress as “f**king insane.”
Christine’s comments follow Jessica’s claims that she wasn’t allowed to make “eye contact” with the stars of the show.
The 55-year-old actress posted an apology to Jessica on Instagram on Thursday, writing: “First of all – I have never met her but have always admired her work. I am certain she is a lovely woman.
“Secondly, anyone who knows me at all knows I swear with unapologetic abandon, so quotes read without tone of voice can be misinterpreted and seem more angry than they ever were.”
The actress- who portrayed the recurring role of Emily Valentine on the long-running series- explained that Jessica’s experience on the show “does not sound like the set I was on.”
Noting that she was “only in a handful of episodes,” Christine explained she wrote for the show and was living with boyfriend and star Jason Priestley at the time.
She wrote: “Had any such culture evolved on that set – I feel certain I would be aware of it.”
The post continued with Christine acknowledging that other cast members denied Jessica’s allegations, while she added that the controversy “baffles” her since the show ended 20 years ago.
The caption continued: “Perhaps she was misquoted or the remark was taken out of context but – left unanswered – it implies that the entire cast engaged in unprofessional diva behavior & that they were unwelcoming to guest stars.
“I think that is an inaccurate & unjust representation of a lot of people I consider to be my friends.”
She concluded: “I regret calling her a liar but, more importantly, I regret jumping into this sandbox.
“What a sad state of affairs that the cast members of a beloved show that premiered THIRTY YEARS AGO are still fodder for ancient history gossip – about things that allegedly happened nearly 25 years ago.
“I am embarrassed about my part in this. Apologies to Jessica Alba.”
Earlier this month, the 39-year-old actress claimed in an interview with Hot Ones’ Sean Evans: “On the set of 90210, I couldn’t even make eye contact with any of the cast members. It was strange when you’re trying to do a scene with them.
“Yeah, I was told ‘You’re not allowed to make eye contact with any of the cast members or you’ll be thrown off the set.'”
Jessica played Leanne, a pregnant teenager, in a 1998 episode of the series.

Christine previously hit back at Jessica by stating: “Is she f***king insane? There’s no way.
“[Producer] Paul Waigner did say, ‘The girls may not be nice, the guys might not be nice,’ but that’s as bad as it got!”
She continued: “That cast is very nice and if they don’t like you, they go away. That whole ‘don’t make eye contact’ [claim] is — I’m gonna call it what it is — it’s a f***king lie.
“Why is she invested in s**t-talking a show from 30 years ago? She’s doing great. She’s a bazillionaire with her little Honest company!”
