90210 heart problems

While appearing a picture of health to her fans, Jennie Garth has been hiding a “leaky” heart valve for over seven years. The former ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ actress lost her father last year to heart disease and has since decided to speak out about her own medical struggles. The star explains, “I have a leaky valve and it’s a common thing. A lot of people have it and they don’t know they have it”. She continues, “It’s your connection to your heart… your artery, the main artery that goes to your heart. It sort of flutters open and shut… It’s weird because sometimes when I’m resting I can feel a little weird fluttering.” But the actress insists it’s nothing to worry about for now. “Down the road it’s something that could get more complicated or it could not. People have had valve replacements and that kind of thing.” Jennie was one of the original ‘90210’ stars and also appears in the remake of the popular series.
