There were a lot of tears on Friday night's episode of Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star broke down several times on the CMT reality show when talking about the break-up of her marriage to Twilight and Nurse Jackie star Peter Facinelli.

Garth, 40, went on a California “love retreat” with two of her friends. During one session held by “relationship expert” Daphne Rose Kingma, Garth said: “I think that when you get married you hope that it’s forever and you hope that you’re going to grow old together. This really threw me for a loop.”

She went on to say: "I think with any sort of rejection, you're angry that you weren't enough for that person. I don't know if I'm angry at myself for not being enough, or if I'm angry at him for not considering me to be enough.

"It's weird and sad, but I really realized through this whole experience how much I loved him, how deeply I loved him and how deeply I loved us.”

After months of rumors that the marriage was on the rocks, Peter filed for divorce in March.

Garth revealed she felt she “failed” her three children when the marriage ended.

As previously reported Garth doesn’t like sharing her private feelings but she says she thought the retreat was “cathartic."
