90210 star and rumored on-set diva Shanae Grimes took to her blog to fight back media attacks on her weight and smoking habit.
The actress says, “Now, as you all know now probably, I graced my first major magazine cover, only to be called “too skinny” alongside my co-star Jessica Stroup. I would like to say once again that neither me or Jessica have issues with our weight or bodies. I happened to be very small built, and ive always been skinny. So I personally think that people need to stop criticizing everyone in the media these days about their issues. Im sure you wouldnt like it if someone pointed out all of your flaws and all of your mistakes… but thats what the media does to us.”
In related news, Shanae, who was recently spotted buying six packs of cigarettes, said of her smoking habit, “I can’t say that I’m proud of it, but there are so many people struggling with the addiction nowadays. I started smoking at about 16, and 1 in 5 teenagers smoke. I’m not really going to go into the issue, but my hope is that you will all stop hating and get on with it. I smoke. My choice. I’m sorry if you don’t like it, but this is who I am.” [Source:MySpace; Photo:Getty]
