Jennie Garth and her girls Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, attended the launch of Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. last Thursday (April 19). The event was also to celebrate the actress’ 40th birthday.
On the red carpet Garth talked about the show saying “it’s not a scandalous, gross reality show.”
She told CMT.com, “It’s a really sweet, heartfelt show, and it shows a part of me that’s very vulnerable and real. … I just needed to slow it down for a little bit. As much as I love L.A. and I love what I do, I wanted to focus on my girls. I love nature and I love being in the country, so I just kind of wanted to have that for them for a while.”
She says living in a rural area has its advantages and disadvantages.
It’s nice because you don’t have to worry about things. You don’t have to lock your doors. I leave the keys in my car, and I don’t lock it. The hardest part is that there’s no take-out food, so I have to cook a lot.”
Last month she opened up on dealing with the split with husband Peter Facinelli.
She revealed, “I didn’t want it to happen…. I would take the girls to school, then go back and get into bed and not get up again until it was time to pick them up from school, and I had to pretend everything was fine.”
