Elise, whose last appearance on the Fox drama was four years before Alba's 90210 guest stint, has expressed regret for her comments on The Beverly Hills, 90210 Podcast accusing Alba of lying about being told not to make eye contact when she guested on the show in 1998. "That whole ‘don’t make eye contact’ (claim) is — I’m gonna call it what it is — it’s a f*cking lie," she said on the podcast. Elise later issued a statement on Instagram, saying of Alba: "First of all—I have never met her but have always admired her work. I am certain she is a lovely woman...Secondly, anyone who knows me at all knows that I swear with unapologetic abandon, so quotes read without tone of voice can be misinterpreted and seem more angry than they ever were." Elise added that what Alba said didn't reflect the set she worked on.
