Jennie Garth's friends say she is more confident since losing weight following her marriage split.
Jennie Garth is more confident since her marriage ended.
While the former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star was devastated following the breakdown of her 16-year relationship with Peter Facinelli in March, she has lost about 20 pounds and is ''happier than ever''.
A friend told Us Weekly: ''She's happier than ever. She looks like the old Jennie!
''When you get sad, you either overeat or you become really healthy. Jennie's taking care of herself -she's taken control of her situation.
''Before, she used to be like, 'OK, let's cover me up'. And now she's more open-minded about having fun with her clothes. She's feeling good in her skin.''
Jennie - who has daughters Luca, 15 Lola, nine, and Fiona, five, with Peter - was spotted on a date with TV star Antonio Ballatore in Las Vegas in May but hasn't confirmed a new relationship.
She previously revealed the marriage split made her aware of just how much she loved the 'Twilight Saga' star Peter.
She said: ''It's weird and sad, but I really came to understand through this whole experience how much I loved him, how deeply I loved him and how deeply I loved us.''
