Jennie Garth’s “Six Months Of Hell”

All the buzz has been surrounding Jennie Garth recently for returning to her role as Kelly Taylor on the new 90210. However, earlier this year, returning to work was the last thing on her mind as her young daughter Lola was sick,

“I had this six months of hell,” the 36-year-old actress said. “I had a sick daughter and then my father passed away, so there was a six month period in my life when I didn’t think about my looks or my weight or my body or anything.”

Right after her successful stint on Dancing With The Stars – and toned from months of 8-hour-a-day dance practices – Jennie was faced with every mother’s worst nightmare. Her 5-year-old daughter Lola, “got very sick and we didn’t know what was wrong with her,” said Jennie who has three girls with husband Peter Facinelli. Jennie went on to describe “I was basically locked in a closet with her for three months.”

Jennie said she didn’t participate in any self-care during those six months,

“I didn’t exercise or eat healthy,” she adds. “I had been a 27 in my jeans after Dancing With the Stars and I was so excited. But it really went back quickly. I definitely gained inches and a size.”

Jennie said that doctors were finally able to diagnose her daughter’s ailment,

“It turned out to be a form of JRA [Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis]) and we treated her and it’s in remission,” says Garth. “It was tough, but she’s better now.”
