Los Angeles, CA- Actress Jennie Garth was forced to go on the defensive after numerous media outlets began to question her dramatic weight-loss.
Jennie who is noticeably thinner just five months after her second husband “Twilight” star Peter Facinelli filed for divorcee felt pressured to explain her significantly smaller physique.
“I’ve been certainly going through a transitional time in my life,” Garth told “Entertainment Tonight” Canada, “And I think anybody who has been through something like what I’m going through and have gone through over the past couple years, can definitely relate that your body changes with your emotional state of mind sometimes. I think a lot of women can relate to that.”
A study last August showed that women are more likely to gain weight after marriage while men are more likely to gain weight after divorce
On her reality show, Jennie: A Little Bit Country. Garth spoke candidly about her divorce with a therapist, “I think with any sort of rejection you’re angry that you weren’t enough for that person. So I don’t know if I’m angry with myself for not being enough or if I’m angry at him for not considering me to be enough.”
Garth and Facinelli, who married in 1996 decided to call it quits this past March. They have three daughters together, but the couple is quietly settling the terms of their divorce and child custody.
Sometimes when celebrities divorce they end up in public and prolonged battles over support and child custody. Oftentimes an experienced divorce attorney can help them settle divorce issues amicably without making their battles public.
