Oh, poor Jennie Garth!
I had no idea she’d been going through something like this.
Apparently her 5-year-old daughter, Lola, recently got very sick and no one could figure out what was wrong with her.
“I was basically locked in a closet with her for three months.”
Leaving all vanity behind, “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.”
Finally, doctors were 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.”
Jennie’s father passed away during the same time period. I guess life still does suck unbelievably some times, no matter how rich or famous you are.
Aw, Jennie, if it’s any consolation, you were totally the best part of 90210 on Tuesday night.

Jennie had been cast in a CBS pilot called My Best Friend’s Girl, but she quit the show abruptly on Monday after the table read, fueling speculation that she wants to do the CW’s 90210 remake instead.
Jennie will be replaced in the pilot by Canadian actress Kristin Booth.
It’s been rumored that the 90210 pilot’s writer, Rob Thomas, has been trying to woo Jennie into coming onto his show. He wants to cast her as a fashion design teacher at her old high school. This sudden decision by Jennie seems to indicate that she wants the job. However, it should be noted that her real-life father recently passed away, so maybe Jennie’s just decided she wants to spend more time with her family (she’s pictured above with her daughters). I guess we’ll know soon enough.

Jennie Garth showed up to lend some celeb support to the National Kidney Foundation’s “KEEP It Hollywood” event, and she’s either sporting a baby bump or an unfortunate tank top. In fairness, she’s had three kids with husband Peter Facinelli, so I’ll cut her some slack.
Either way, she’s such a cutie. I really like her.
