Jennie Garth Comments on Co-Stars' Weight, Show Direction and More

at . Comments

In light of the recent criticism levied at 90210 stars Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup, Jennie Garth has been forced to comment on an uncomfortable topic.

Does she think the actresses have a weight problem?

"I don't know them personally that well, and I think that that's their private business," Garth told reporters at Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's Respect Awards on Friday. "If I were the director or the producer or the showrunners, maybe I would deal with it differently."

As for the direction of the show itself, and whether or not the new characters are coming into their own, Garth said:

"It's a show of its own, it's starting to find its legs. Viewers are starting to accept the new characters, instead of worrying about the old characters quite so much, which is a good thing."

And will Garth be part of this good thing for the long run?

"One day at a time," she said. "I'm on episode 10. That's all I know!"
