Entourage star Constance Zimmer strolls in SoHo with her 8-month-old daughter Colette Zoe on Tuesday. The stars of the HBO hit series were at the NYC premiere of the fifth season last night – which kicks off Sept. 7th at 8pm on HBO.
All the buzz has been surrounding Jennie Garth recently for returning to her role as Kelly Taylor on the new 90210. However, earlier this year, returning to work was the last thing on her mind as her young daughter Lola was sick,
“I had this six months of hell,” the 36-year-old actress said. “I had a sick daughter and then my father passed away, so there was a six month period in my life when I didn’t think about my looks or my weight or my body or anything.”
Right after her successful stint on Dancing With The Stars – and toned from months of 8-hour-a-day dance practices – Jennie was faced with every mother’s worst nightmare. Her 5-year-old daughter Lola, “got very sick and we didn’t know what was wrong with her,” said Jennie who has three girls with husband Peter Facinelli. Jennie went on to describe “I was basically locked in a closet with her for three months.”
Jennie said she didn’t participate in any self-care during those six months,
“I didn’t exercise or eat healthy,” she adds. “I had been a 27 in my jeans after Dancing With the Stars and I was so excited. But it really went back quickly. I definitely gained inches and a size.”
Jennie said that doctors were finally able to diagnose her daughter’s ailment,
“It turned out to be a form of JRA [Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis]) and we treated her and it’s in remission,” says Garth. “It was tough, but she’s better now.”
“Everyone had to work twice as hard as my body grew bigger almost by the day. I was shot from the waist up at first, then they had to use different body doubles as my boobs got bigger. Then just my face was in shot because my boobs were too big. Right at the end it was my face in profile surrounded by a nest of hair because my face started to fill out as well. Everything was swelling and pulsating. I looked really vulgar!”
Dealing with her body changing after suffering from anorexia,
“I’m surprisingly chilled about my body changing, I think it’s because I can’t do anything about it. I often see myself in the mirror and laugh. It’s nice having boobs. I think when you don’t have them you find ways to make yourself feel better about the lack of cleavage. You convince yourself that it’s OK and that people have to just learn to love them, and that someone will find them vaguely attractive at some point. But that’s bull***t! That’s basically a load of b******s. Then they’re there and you’re like, ‘How am I ever going to live without these?’. That’s my next problem. You love them so much and you really want to get them out a lot and just expose yourself to anyone who wants to see them. I’m really enjoying them, although it’s kind of the most inappropriate time to get your t*ts out. Should you go around showing what you’ve got, or keep it under wraps because you’re about to become a mum? It’s a dilemma — but I just tend to get them out.”
