Jennie Garth: Animals fill a void

Jennie Garth appreciates the "unconditional love" from her farm animals in the wake of her divorce.

The actress was left devastated when her husband Peter Facinelli recently filed legal papers to end their 11-year marriage. Jennie has now decided to make a fresh start by living on a seven-acre farm in the California countryside.

She loves spending time in the open air with her array of animals which include two goats, two horses, a pig, five cats and four dogs.

"Having all these animals fills a void for me because I'm kind of going through a rough time right now. The animals give you unconditional love, and that feels good," she revealed in her new TV show Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country. "I think that my animals give me a sense of like relief, like they make me feel like none of that other bullsh*t matters.

"When you look into their eyes, and they look back at you, and they don't want anything, they just want love. Whether I'm successful or not successful, whether I'm fat or thin, if I'm nice or if I'm not nice, they still love me."

Jennie is pleased she decided to make the move to the farm with her three daughters.

The 40-year-old believes the change of scenery and slower pace of life has helped her to cope with the breakdown of her marriage to Twilight actor Peter.

"[Peter]'s doing his thing and I'm doing mine. I chose to come up here and be with the quieter lifestyle, and that's why I'm here," the 90210 actress explained. "Getting separated has definitely been difficult, but being out here in the country has sort of made things a little easier."
