In her reality show, Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, which was supposed to be out her marriage and family life with Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth reveals all her feelings about Facinelli’s decision to file for divorce and the former 90210 actress doesn’t hold anything back.

Facinelli and Garth were married in 2001 after dating briefly, she says on the show, and soon after marriage Garth gave birth to their first daughter, Luca Bella.

Garth, 40, later admitted to her friends on the show that the two moved too fast, but they “had a great run.”

Later in the episode when she seeks help and advisement from a therapist, Garth tearfully saying to the therapist and her friends that she feels “sadness” and “anger” at Facinelli’s choice to file for divorce.

“I think with any sort of rejection, you’re angry that you weren’t enough for that person,” she says in the episode. “So I don’t know if I’m angry at myself for not being enough, or if I’m angry at him for not considering me to be enough.”

Though there were problems in her marriage she never thought it would end in divorce. She said she thought her marriage would be “forever” and the fact that Facinelli ultimately filed for divorce in March really threw her “for a loop.”

When the therapist asked what she had learned from the experience Garth admitted how much she really adored him, “It’s weird and sad, but I really realized through this whole experience how much I loved him, how deeply I loved him and how deeply I loved us.”

At the end when the therapist probes her to see if she would like to share these feelings with her soon-to-be-ex she simply responds, “Yes.”
