Jennie Garth Explains Weight Loss, Meets With Former ‘90210’ Co-Stars

Jennie Garth had her fans worried when she turned up looking gaunt earlier this year following a split from her husband, but the former Beverly Hills 90210 star assured them that she’s taking care of herself.

The actress addressed the weight loss earlier this month, telling Entertainment Tonight Canada that she was “going through a transitional time” after her divorce and that “your body changes with your emotional state of mind sometimes.” Jennie Garth turned up again this week, appearing at Old Navy Denim Pop-Up Bar event in Los Angeles looking fit and in good shape.

Speaking to Us Weekly, Jennie Garth noted that she’s been losing weight carefully with a simple regimen of diet and exercise.

Jennie Garth split from her husband, actor Peter Facinelli, at the beginning of 2012 after the couple were married for 11 years.

Even at the depths of her difficult times earlier this year, Jennie Garth said she still tried to take care of herself.

“I eat a lot of Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt in the morning, salads and proteins the rest of the day and maybe a cupcake if I’ve been a good girl,” said Garth, who had a personal trainer to help keep on an exercise routine. “I don’t believe in depriving yourself of things you want.”

Things have been looking up for Jennie Garth lately. Friends say she is happier than ever, and she dated HGTV star Antonio Ballatore post-split before moving into a quasi-serious relationship with photographer Noah Abrams.

She even reunited with her old 90210 co-stars for an Old Navy commercial.

“It was weird, it was like no time had passed and we were back on the set again,” Jennie Garth told Us Weekly about meeting with former on-screen love Luke Perry.
