AnnaLynne McCord: 90210 is Family Oriented!

at . Comments

AnnaLynne McCord is defending her lifestyle and her series.

In an interview with E! Online, the actress says her childhood was pretty much the opposite of that of her character, Naomi Clark.

"I was not rich growing up. I didn't go to high school; I was homeschooled," the actress said. "I was the dork, the math nerd, the odd man out. I wasn't a Chanel girl, I was, like, Goodwill. Hand-me-downs from big sis. I think when I got a new piece of clothing it was from Walmart when I was 14."

McCord also said there's a difference between the numerous teen hits on television these days.

"[People] tell us, 'That's too risqué,' and we're like, 'Do you know what goes on the night before us on Gossip Girl?' [Our producers have] made a point to take it in a route that it's not just the sex, sex, sex, sex! They take the skin out and made it a little more family oriented."

Hmm... we know Naomi wasn't aware of the blow job Ethan received in series premiere. But was McCord in the dark also?

I think TED CASABLANCA should shut up. He is always so snotty. I am gay just like him but can't stand the snotty rapport he has. UGGH!! I think it is true of 90210! I know people think THE WILSON'S are cheese cause they put family first but I like it. In today's world it's fun to watch something like that on television. That is what I always loved about The Walshes and BH 90210! FAMILY FIRST! Whether blood or frienship, they were family!



How's your nerd?
