Newly single Jennie Garth stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to chat about none other than…her divorce. Check out the highlights below.
ON HER DIVORCE:
Ellen: You’ve been very open and honest talking about the divorce and your relationship. Do you feel like it’s helping to talk about it? How do you feel about it?
Jennie: It’s not something I’m dying to talk about but it’s something that’s going on in my life. I’m not ashamed to talk about it. I think by being open and honest with what I’m going through maybe it helps somebody else. I know, I’ve heard from a lot of people that it helps them, maybe with what they’re going through. I’m not afraid to talk about it.
Ellen: How long were you all married?
Jennie: We were married for 10 or 11 year but we were together for 17 years.
Ellen: God, 17 years. So I think it does help people. I mean you don’t expect that. You think you’re in a relationship and you think it’s going to last. Obviously, it happens a lot of and a lot people can relate to you and see, look you’re going through it. You’re moving on and you have kids that you have to be there for. I know that he’s committed to being there for the kids as well. So that is something that you all have agreed on. There’s going to be that bond of raising the kids.
Jennie: Yeah, I mean we’re still a family of some kind and were still so committed for being there for our girls. That’s the most important thing for us. I think at first, I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it through but I really learned that I am so much stronger than I thought I was. And, if I can help other women touch into that…you know, their strength…
