Jennie Garth: I’m Always Sad When My Girls Visit Their Dad

Jennie Garth has been opening up on the difficulties she had dealing with her divorce from Peter Facinelli in her new book Deep Thoughts From A Hollywood Blonde.

In her latest interview with FOX News – she said, “Having them leave the first time to go spend the week at dad’s house, I still every time… I call it “transition day.” Every time I have to have a transition day it takes me a day to figure it out. I know now what’s wrong. I’m always sad for the whole day, just blue and glum because my girls are gone. A chunk of me is taken away when they leave. I really have to recompose myself.”

She also told People that two years ago her daughter Luca gave her a self-help book for Christmas titled S––– Happens So Get Over It.

Garth – who also has Lola, 11, and Fiona, 7, – stated, “I thought, ‘Are you kidding me? I can’t believe she’s so insensitive.”

The 41-year-old is now working with Tori Spelling on the ABC Family series Mystery Girls and is renovating her L.A. home which she features in an upcoming HGTV series The Jennie Garth Project.

    I hate it when my son goes to his Dad’s. It is not fair. I am not the one who chose to do what he did and leave, but I am the one who has to give up being with my child.

    • Susan

      Heather, seriously, grow up.

      • Allison

        What a completely insensitive thing to say to another mother who’s sharing her feelings honestly.

      I’m not sure why your comment has received so many down votes. You’re right, it’s not fair and I’m sorry that you, and any other mom and dad who’s struggling with it, has to go through it at all. Sending you cyber hugs.

      I feel the absolute same way. Why should I have to suffer missing my child..not fair at all.

    How old are you?

    You may not have chose but you did choose to have a kids with your Ex, it’s his child also so. If you wanted to keep your child to your self adopt or go to a sperm bank because.

    Even if Jennie hates it, I hope she doesn’t make it obvious to the kids. That could severely mess up their emotional states, speaking from experience.

    Of course she is sad, she still resents what he did to her. I’m on her side but, surely, by no means she meant her children shall not visit their dad.. it’s right they do, but that doesn’t have to make her happy and she can talk about it.
