Jennie Garth: Farm animals help me cope with split

Just call it “animal therapy.”

Soon-to-be-divorced actress Jennie Garth says the four-legged creatures on her California farm are the perfect cure for a broken heart.

The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star said she’s grateful for the four dogs, two goats, five cats, two small horses and pig on her huge Los Olivos ranch because their love is pure, according to People magazine.

“Having all these animals fills a void for me because I'm kind of going through a rough time right now," she said on the debut of her new show, “Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country." "The animals give you unconditional love, and that feels good."

Garth and her three daughters settled into their new animal-filled home following Garth’s split from husband Peter Facinelli.

"I think that my animals give me a sense of relief, like they make me feel like none of that other bull**** matters," Garth continued. "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, whether I'm fat or thin, if I'm nice or if I'm not nice, they still love me."

The star of the new reality show also said being surrounded by nature has also helped her not focus on her ex so much.

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

    By :Now that the government's melndidg is over prices can resume their normal trajectory to a market-based equilibrium.In other words, look out below!Some of the melndidg is over. But we still have Fannie/Freddie/FHA representing 96.5% of loans being made. IMO, government price fixing should be illegal. Then again, if it were, who would fund the political elections?

    She seems overly friendly with that male donkey. Why does she keep going to his stable before bedtime?

    “Having all these animals fills a void for me because I'm kind of going through a rough time right now,"

    I bet her horse is her favorite for "filling" that void.

    I don't get it, why did Peter F leave this lady? What a fool. She's 40 ish and looks 30 ish, and probably will for a long time plus from interviews she seems really great.

    Hollywood is killing a bunch of great couples.
