Jennie Garth is another actress who grew up in Illinois, so she is a Midwest gal like me. Along with Denise Richards and Jenny McCarthy whose books I also read. I think these actresses have the traits that people from the Midwest embody, friendly, down to earth and relatable. What’s not to love?
I was a little too young when Jennie was on 90210, but I did watch her on Dancing with the Stars, What I Like About You, and her family reality show A Little Bit Country.
She talks about her upbringing on a farm, how she was a daddy’s girl, and the youngest in her family. For fans of 90210 Jennie chronicles her rise to fame. It is fun to hear behind the scenes and what is was like to be famous at a young age and the relationships she had with the cast.
She also talks about each of those shows and what those experiences were like for her. She has had such a long career in Hollywood and has managed to stay real.
She recently got divorced and talks about the heartbreak of that all and how she never thought she’d be there. She is beginning to date again and is raising 3 girls with her ex Peter Facinelli.
