I am a child of the 80′s. In addition to my deep love of The Spice Girls and boy bands I also hold a very special place in my heart for Beverly Hills 90210. And let’s face it, the first 4 years of the show were the very best – before our fave high schoolers got too old. I mean, Kelly Taylor was always at her best when she was unapologetically bitchy and stealing Dylan from Brenda. Brandon was the best when he was working away at The Peach Pit and being all high school newspaper-y hot. Dylan was so good when he was all bad boy brooding on a motorcycle taking Brenda’s virginity and Donna Martin graduating was almost the best thing ever. And Brenda, Brenda had the very best hair ever when she told Kelly and Dylan that they could basically go f*ck themselves after they told her that they cheated on her together.
Needless to say I feel a sort of kinship to those who starred on the show, so these pictures of Jennie Garth shocked me a little bit. Like I want to sit down with her and make sure everything’s ok. Because she’s super skinny now, no? I mean, she’s always looked great but since she and her husband Peter Facinelli announced their split she seems to be wasting away. But that happens, right, when people split up? Maybe she’s trying to send him a message that he’s an ass and look what he gave up? Because it was rumoured that the reason for the split was because he cheated on her while filming Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Looking good is the best payback isn’t it? Jennie spoke to ET Canada and attributed her weight loss on the breakup saying;
“I’ve been certainly going through a transitional time in my life. And I think anybody who has been through something like what I’m going through and have been going through for the past couple years, can definitely relate that your body changes with your emotional state of mind sometimes. I think a lot of women can relate to that.”
We must however talk about the new Old Navy commercials starring Jennie and Jason Priestly and Luke Perry. Because, I can’t. I mean, I love them so much but these commercials are killing me. And not in the good way. Except for the one with Gabrielle Carteris and Jason Priestly. Not gonna lie, loved that one. Check them out below.
Here’s Jennie and her two younger girls Lola and Fiona after a visit to MOMA and then lunch in NYC. I miss BH 90210 so much.
