LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jennie Garth bid farewell last night on “Dancing with the Stars.” The “90210” star didn’t expect to win, but she was not emotionally prepared to hear “goodbye.”
“I am an emotional person. Not a crazy person — I just cry really easily,” she told Access Hollywood last night just moments after gettting the boot.
Wiping away her own tears, backstage Jennie offered words of comfort and a hug to her number one fan, 10-year old daughter, Luca.
“My family has been so supportive and I knew my daughter was gonna be disappointed so that was hard,” Jennie Garth said. “She thought I was gonna win it. I kept telling her, ‘Baby, mommy is not gonna win this.’”
But, there were a lot of consolation prizes. Derek scored a high-five from Jennie’s one-year old, Fiona, while the hot mama scored a kiss from her little one and husband Peter Facinelli.
“What did you say to her when the show ended?” Tony Potts asked Peter.
“I haven’t really talked to her. I let my lips do the talking. We embraced and I gave her a big warm kiss,” he said. “It’s bittersweet, it’s the end of the road but she gets to come back to her family.”
But for some maybe just bitter — with three perfect scores on Monday night, Jennie outscored Marie, which even has Yahoo saying “fans got it wrong.”
Mel and Maks admitted they are feeling the Osmond heat, despite their two perfect scores.
“It’s the viewers that decide no matter what the judges say,” Mel B told Access.
“There’s like ten million Osmonds everywhere, ” Maksim exclaimed.
“Do you the Osmond factor is a big deal in this?” Tony asked.
“No,” both Mel and Maks replied sarcastically.
