“I had all the scenes with her. If anybody didn’t want to have their eyes looked into, it would’ve been me, but I don’t remember ‘cause I have the world’s worst memory,” Garth, 48, said in a trailer for her and Spelling’s upcoming podcast, “9021OMG,” on Sunday, October 4.

The Stori Telling author, 47, wondered whether the Fox teen drama’s producers passed around a “cool memo” without the cast knowing.

“Imagine we just thought guest stars didn’t like us? ‘They never looked at us! We don’t know why. We were so nice,’” she said.

Spelling and Garth went on to praise Alba, 39, who guest-starred as Leanne in two episodes during season 8 before breaking out in the film and TV industries.

“From the vague memories I have of working with her, I only remember her being super talented. She was very young, and she was really sweet,” the former What I Like About You star said. “It does not surprise me that she’s gone on to be so successful.”

Referencing the Honest Company cofounder’s baby products, the True Tori alum chimed in, “I was a little horrified when I saw that clip … because her baby wipes are my favorite. … Like, I wipe my child’s ass with her baby wipes every single day. I’m so upset right now.”

“I couldn’t even make eye contact with any of the cast members, which was really strange when you’re, like, trying to do a scene with them,” she claimed. “It was like, ‘You’re not allowed to make eye contact with any one of the cast members or you’ll be thrown off the set.’”

After the show ended its 10-season run in 2000, a reboot titled 90210 aired on The CW from 2008 to 2013. The original cast — including Spelling, Garth, Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley and Ian Ziering — reunited in 2019 for a one-season Fox revival, BH90210.
