Ferrera: ‘Teen Shows Breed Nastiness’

UGLY BETTY actress AMERICA FERRERA has hit out at teen shows GOSSIP GIRL, 90210 and THE HILLS, accusing them of turning young women against each other.

The star hates the way the shows portray and encourage girls to backstab each other.

She tells Seventeen magazine, “Close, genuine female relationships are not what generally gets depicted in movies and TV shows. Like, if you’re watching The Hills, or 90210, all the backstabbing shapes the way we act – you go to school and you think your job is to find a sworn enemy and be jealous of each other. Shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean.”
