Making her first appearance in public after announcing her divorce, Jennie Garth was spotted having lunch in Beverly Hills yesterday (March 19).
The “Beverly Hills 90210” starlet forced a smile as she strolled past paparazzi, not wearing her wedding ring, after a delicious meal at Villa Blanca with some girl friends.
Last week, Jennie and her 11-year hubby Peter Facinelli announced that they were ending their marriage, but wanted to keep things amicable and positive.
Of the split, Garth previously remarked, “Being out here on my own with the girls is not going to be easy, but I know it's the right thing for us right now. I feel it in my heart. I'm excited about what's next.”
Jennie and Peter’s original press release stated, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”
