Jennie Garth skyrocketed to stardom with her role as Kelly Taylor on Beverly Hills, 90210. The show became a ratings juggernaut, lasting 10 seasons, and remains one of the most successful and iconic television series ever produced.

In the summer of 2014, Jennie reteamed with ‘90210’ alum Tori Spelling in the hit ABC Family series Mystery Girls. The show follows two former detective TV show starlets as they start an agency to solve real life crimes. In September 2014, she stars in The Jennie Garth Project, a new HGTV series that follows her as she renovates a dated Hollywood Hills, Calif. house for herself and her three kids.

In 2002, Jennie made her comedy debut as the straight-laced sister of Amanda Bynes in the WB's What I Like About You. The series concluded in 2006 after a four season run.

Jennie also has starred in many successful television TV shows and movies over the years including the 2013 ABC Family holiday comedy Holidaze, the 2012 Lifetime film The Eleventh Victim, based on the best-selling novel by Nancy Grace, the 2007 season of Dancing with the Stars, where she made it through to the semi-finals, Girl Positive, Accidentally in Love and A Christmas Tail, to name a few.

In 2014 she added the title of author to her resume releasing her first memoir with New American Library (NAL), a division of Penguin Group (USA), titled Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde.

Jennie actively gives back supporting causes such as Kids Vision for Life, Stand Up to Cancer, The American Heart Association, Austism Speaks, Lollipop Theater Network and Water4.

Jennie and her three daughters, Luca Bella, Lola Ray, and Fiona Eve currently reside in Los Angeles.
