Jennie Garth's life has been an interesting ride, and she plans to share it all with the world in a new memoir. In that story, her fans will get to learn more about what brought her to Hollywood and how she has changed since her life as a child in Illinois.
"It's through my perspective, and so it's interesting to read someone else's story, you know — my experience," Garth told People. "This book is definitely about my journey — starting out in the Midwest as a little girl, the things I did in my adolescent and teenage years to early stardom and [the] present day."
The 41-year-old has been rediscovering herself in recent years, after a divorce from husband Peter Facinelli. The couple has three daughters: 16-year-old Luca, 11-year-old Lola and 7-year-old Fiona. Raising three daughters has taught Garth a lot about females — even more than she knew before — but the three have fun no matter what they're doing.
"We rock out in the car a lot," she said. "We just have fun anywhere we go as long as we're together, you know? It's a lot of energy. A lot of feminine energy."
But raising three children of all different ages, plus balancing a successful career, has been a challenge for the actress, who is once again single. She shares custody with Facinelli, but she has learned how to balance their busy lives and her own schedule.
"I have a calendar and it's like my bible, and the girls are on it and their pickup and drop-off times," Garth explained. "I've recently gone back to a day planner, and I like to write down things and I look at it all — the whole week [at] a glance. It really sets my mind at ease."
The book, Deep Thoughts from a Hollywood Blonde, was a labor of love for Garth, and will tell the story of her life: growing up as a Midwest child, becoming a Hollywood teen and then a successful TV star. Most important, she is happy to be "leaving something behind for my girls — on the bookshelf, it's going to be so cool to see my book up there. They're going to really love that."
