Jennie Garth was upset when she received a self-help book from her daughter.

The 'Mystery Girls' star admitted that her eldest child Luca, 15, presented her with a copy of 'S**t Happens So Get Over It' for Christmas, following her split from Peter Facinelli in 2012 after 11 years of marriage.

The 41-year-old actress, who is preparing to release her new memoir 'Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde' next Tuesday (04.03.14), told ''I thought, 'Are you kidding me? I can't believe she's so insensitive!' ''

But Jennie confessed the book actually ended up being a ''wake up call'' for her and earned a permanent place on her living room coffee table.

The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star, who also has daughters Lola, 11, and seven-year-old Fiona with her ex-husband, insisted her autobiography doesn't focus on the divorce, which was finalised last June.

She said: ''It's not a salacious tell-all. It's my journey and an introspective look at things I've experienced in my life.''

She added: ''It feels good to be busy and be creative. I feel like I'm fulfilling my destiny now in a way that I never have.''

Jennie has dated a number of men since her split from 'Twilight Saga' star Peter, who is in a relationship with Jaimie Alexander, but she is currently single.
