There was some real-life high school drama on the set of the 90210 reboot. During a Tuesday, February 6, appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, AnnaLynne McCord revealed that she and former costar Shenae Grimes didn’t get along while filming the CW series, which aired from 2008 to 2013.
“Shenae and I . . . We were at each other’s throats for five years and the day before we wrapped, Shenae calls me and was like, ‘Hey . . . I can’t believe it’s over,’” McCord, 30, recalled. “I’m like, ‘Bitch?!’”
McCord blamed her mental health for the tension. “I just was removed from everything,” explained the actress, who now stars in Pop TV comedy Let’s Get Physical. “I had social anxiety and I didn’t know it so it makes you seem like a real, little piece of work.”
But taking a page from Beverly Hills, 90210 original castmates Shannen Doherty and Jenni Garth, who famously feuded on set, the actresses have since buried the hatchet. “We hashed it out the day before we wrapped,” McCord told Williams, adding that she was there when Grimes, 28, married British model Josh Beech in 2013.
“All five years, and I end up at her wedding in England and now we were friends,” said McCord. “We have dinner dates. It’s awesome, I love her.”
McCord’s new drama First We Take Brooklyn opens in theaters Friday.
