Degrassi’s Shenae goes diva on set
Published: Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Half the fun of the original 90210 series was all the scheming, backstabbing and gossip that happened off screen.
Rumours of a new bad girl on set are stealing the spotlight away from the show’s steamy storylines. It seems that former Degrassi darling Shenae Grimes, who plays Annie Wilson, is developing a diva ‘tude, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Sources told Page Six that the Toronto-born Grimes is “tormenting everyone on set” and “acts rude to the cast, crew and extras.”
The insider dishes that Grimes had the gall to yell at a guest star, “Who the hell are you?” and doesn’t hesitate to tell everyone: “This is my show. Everyone else is riding on my coattails.”
We can’t help but doubt Page Six’s source. Not only did Grimes win our hearts by playing a sweet Christian girl on Degrassi, she also has very little to brag about. Ratings for the new 902010 series dropped from 4.9 million U.S. viewers for the show’s first week to 3.2 million for the second episode, when bad girl Shannen Doherty was absent from the episode.
