Jessica Alba is the latest celebrity to take on the ‘Hot Ones’ challenge with the YouTube channel ‘First We Feast’. Believe it or not, while she was trying 10 super hot wings, the actress applied lipgloss. There is a good explanation for it!
The title of the episode couldn’t be more appropriate: ‘Jessica Alba Applies Lip Gloss While Eating Spicy Wings.’ The actress takes a big bite of the spicy wings and asks herself “why did I take a bite that big” before re-applying pink lip gloss to her perfect pout. Alba reapplies lip gloss again before trying the 669,000 Scoville level sauce and calls it a ‘layer of protection.’
The host Sean Evans asks Alba about her time training and filming ‘Honey’, a cult dance classic. Alba admits that she took ‘a shot or two’ of Hypnotiq and Hennesy before filming a few scenes to get out of her head and loosen up. She also admits that Snoop Dogg ‘maybe’ offered her a blunt a few times in her life.
Along with applying lip gloss while eating spicy wings. Alba’s time on ‘Hot Ones’ made headlines after she shared that while she was an up-and-coming actress guest-starring on ‘90210’ she was instructed not to make eye contact with the cast. Alba played a pregnant teenager and had a two-episode stint on the show in 1998. Alba explained, “On the set of 90210, 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.” Alba continued, “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.”
The cast of 90210 caught wind of Alba’s claims and have been coming out one by one claiming they had no idea. Despite the actors claims that they didn’t know about the ‘eye contact rule’ weirder and grosser claims have come out Hollywood.
Brian Green is the latest cast member who said Alba must not have heard that rule from anyone reputable. During a Thursday appearance on SiriusXM’s ‘The Jenny McCarthy Show’, Green said, “I never worked with Jessica. I never met her on set. I wasn’t there, but that’s — I don’t think she heard that from anyone reputable, like, that was really around us, because that wasn’t ever our policy on set.” Green continued, “The one thing that we really were good about on our set was making people feel welcome and feel like they were a part of the family and what we were doing, and they were a part of the team. So I can’t imagine that at all. And I can’t imagine that she heard that from somebody close enough to us that it was a direct reflection of any one of us.”
In a teaser for the 90210 MG iHeartRadio podcast, Tori Spelling, and Jennie Garth said they had no recollection of the rule either. According to Garth, “I had all the scenes with her… Like, if anybody ... didn’t want to have their eyes looked into, it would’ve been me. But I don’t remember, because I have the world’s worst memory.” Spelling said she was ‘horrified’ when she heard the news and said, “I’m not going to lie to you guys, I was a little horrified when I saw that clip that said that she wasn’t allowed to make eye contact and she had an awful experience because her baby wipes are my favorite,” referencing Alba’s Honest Company.
Jason Priestly echoed the sentiments without doubting her experience on KiSS 92.5’s ‘The Roz & Mocha Show’. “I don’t know what Jessica Alba’s experience was coming on our show as a guest star. I know that certainly I never would have made her feel that way… I don’t even think I worked with her. ... But I’m sorry that that happened to her and it seems really incongruous with everything else that happened on our show.”
Ian Ziering told ‘People’ a no eye contact rule would be ‘the stupidest thing’ he’s ever heard. “I’m not doubting her, but I doubt that it came from any cast member,” he said. “Maybe it came from some third AD who decided to flex a little and said, ‘Please don’t look at the actors.’”
Alba is currently starring in and executive producing ‘L.A.’s Finest’ alongside Gabrielle Union on Fox. Along with being one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, she is a successful businesswoman and the founder of ‘The Honest Company’.
