The busy mom of three has enough on her plate this fall to give her a headache!
Although we recognize Jennie Garth from her days as Kelly Taylor in Beverly Hills, 90210, it's been over ten years since she's graduated from that teenage world. Now, the 39-year-old runs a busy household with her Twilight star husband, Peter Facinelli, and their three daughters: Luca Bella, 14, Lola Ray, 8, and Fiona Eve, 5.
But, Jennie isn't hanging up her acting hat just because she's a mom. After reprising her role as Kelly on the CW's 90210, she's now promoting her new family-friendly movie, A Christmas Wedding Tale, just in time for the holiday season. If that isn't enough, she's also working on developing a new TV show and is trying her hand at writing a children's book! It's enough to give anyone a headache, but Jennie tackles it all with grace.
Your former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star, Shannen Doherty just got married. Did you happen to attend the wedding? What advice do you have for her as a newlywed?
No, I was traveling to the East coast, so I didn't make it to the wedding. I'm so happy for her first of all, I've never met her fiancé and now husband, but I hope they're very happy. My advice to them would be to enjoy each other! Shannen Doherty Weds For The Third Time!
What's your favorite part about being a mom and a wife?
For me, it's a very exciting household. We have three girls, so there are always a lot of emotions going on in our house. I love the day-to-day of it—taking my girls to school and seeing how they develop; their triumphs and their tragedies. I get a lot of enjoyment out of being a mom and a parent.
What's the best love advice you've ever received?
Something for me that I'm working on right now is listening with an open heart—trying to let the other person communicate with me without having a judgment about it.
Are you and the kids excited to see The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1?
Yes, I'm not sure when it comes out, but I know it must be soon, they're starting to rev up PR on it.
What are your plans for Halloween?
We're having a big Halloween party at our house. I'm doing Excedrin Migraine's Facebook chat on October 27 at 8pm EST, where we'll be sharing lots of tips and I'll be joined by a doctor who has a lot of helpful information about migraines. Then, I'll race back home and do the Halloween party on the 31st. 8 (Mostly Couples) Reality TV Halloween Costumes [GALLERY]
You have a new movie coming up called A Christmas Wedding Tale. What can you tell us about that?
It's an adorable movie coming out on November 19 on the Hallmark channel. It'll be available on DVD just in time for Christmas! It's really cute, it has talking dogs and I love talking animal movies, so it's for the whole family!
