Jennie Garth stepped out for two very big occasions last night (April 19th). The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star was joined by Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Steve (Ian Ziering) to celebrate her 40th birthday celebration and launch party for Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country held at The London Hotel in West Hollywood.
“What a great time in a woman’s life,” Garth said of her milestone birthday, which comes in the wake of her split from husband Peter Facinelli. ”I wasn’t sure what was going to happen or what I was going to feel about it. Even on the day I turned 40, I wasn’t sure, but now having turned the corner, it’s really empowering. Being 40 is really awesome.”
Much to our delight, Doherty has been making a few appearances lately thanks to her own reality show, Shannen Says. Doherty emphasized to OK! how much she cares about Garth. ”She knows I’m here so she obviously knows she can call me up and talk to me about anything. I think you do things like coming here today and showing your love and being supportive of her show and watching her show.
“You know it’s important for women to support other women, it’s incredibly important. I have a lot of respect for her and a lot of love for her. So I’m totally excited about seeing her show, I can’t wait.”
