Jennie Garth’s former “90210” co-star Shannen Doherty says that she empathizes with the actress as she goes through a divorce from "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli.
Doherty, while promoting her new reality show “Shannen Says," told People magazine that it’s tough being a celebrity and having all of your personal business on display, especially when you’re trying to raise little ones.
"I think that for somebody like Jennie who values family so much, this is incredibly hard for her," Doherty said in a press call Thursday.
"I feel for her and, more importantly, I feel for her kids," she added. "There are children involved [and] children have access to the Internet and everything that somebody may write."
Still, the 40-year-old actress says she’s proud of Garth for pressing forward with her own upcoming reality show, and of fellow cast member Tori Spelling, who has her own reality show on Oxygen.
"I happen to watch Tori's show and I think it's incredibly charming and endearing and I can't wait to see Jennie's show," Doherty said. "I think [it's] gonna be great."
Doherty's new show, about her life with now-husband Kurt Iswarienko, premieres April 10 on WEtv.
