As the daughter of major Hollywood producer Aaron Spelling, the 48-year-old essentially grew up in the spotlight. During her teenage years, she landed her breakout role as Donna Martin on '90s hit show Beverly Hills, 90210, and she has been dealing with the public's misconceptions about her ever since.

In an exclusive conversation with OK!, the beloved actress sat down to share her approach to dealing with negative attention and hateful comments as part of her very public life. Although she says she can live with what people say about her, it's a whole different story when it comes to her children.

While the Messyness star is "used to negative attacks and false information being out there," she will "never be able to get over" the hateful social media attacks on her five kiddos: Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, 9, and Beau, 4, whom she shares with Dean McDermott.

As for herself, Spelling admits that her career has been filled with "misconceptions" since her time on the Fox drama series. "I was the producer's daughter," she points out, noting the situation has caused people to constantly question her level of talent and make up rumors about her. "So I used to cry when I was young and I'd be like, 'If people really knew me I feel like they would like me, like they'd wanna be friends with me. I'm a good girl.'"

Consequently, the blonde beauty explains she started writing her memoirs and doing reality TV as soon as she could to show the world the real her. "Now I'm an open book and I like that so much better," she shares.

Spelling also says she has developed a "thick skin" over the years to help her deal with hateful comments, but the age of social media has made things even harder: "I'm human, so once in a while it gets through to me but I usually just let it go."

Aside from keeping a tough mindset, the "90210MG" podcast host discusses the importance of her physical health so she will be able to live a long life with her kids. "I want to be able to be in this for the long run. I have young kids and I want, when they grow up, to be a grandma and a great grandma," she tells OK!. "I want to be healthy for life to play, to do."

But what helps the mom-of-five keep her toned figure is Hydroxycut, which she pairs with exercise and a moderate diet to lose weight in a "simple" and "easy" way.
