Jennie Garth says starring in "Beverly Hills, 90210" was "worse than high school." The blonde beauty - who reprises her role as Kelly Taylor in a new spin-off of the hit U.S. TV show - admits the rivalry on set was almost unbearable.
She said: "There were times when being in the show was worse than high school. The environment there was like, 'Are you kidding me?' There was a lot of tension and unnecessary drama on the set, a certain amount of competition, and a certain, probably, anger about different salaries as the years progressed."
"People would find out how much someone was making, and then they'd be angry and want that, or if you got days off in your contract, they'd want that. Nobody was brave enough to step in and set us straight, and have a serious talk with us about it. There was a lot of tension directed from one specific person, and that one specific person had to reap the consequences from that."
Jennie - who starred in the original series from 1990 to 2000 - also revealed she developed agoraphobia, the fear of wide open spaces, while appearing on the show.
She added to The New York Times newspaper: "I started to develop whatever it is when you won't leave the house. That kind of phobia. I just started to really get a little freaked out by it all. I felt like everyone was always looking at me."
