There's nothing like the bond between a mother and daughter—at any given time, one or the other always knows best.

So, sure enough, Jennie Garth's eldest daughter, Luca, knew what she was doing when she bought her mom the self-help book S--t Happens So Get Over It for Christmas in 2012, just months after her parents' separation.

"I thought, 'Are you kidding me? I can't believe she's so insensitive!'" Garth recalled to People while talking about her new memoir, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blond, available in hard copy and digital download March 4.

But guess where that book is now?

Yup, the living room coffee table.

Garth and now ex-husband Peter Facinelli revealed in March 2012 that they had split up after 11 years of marriage and three daughters together, Luca, now 15, Lola, 11, and Fiona, 7.

Their divorce was finalized last June.

Garth, meanwhile, is looking great—and appears to be feeling that way, too. 

"There's no room for negative self talk," the January 2013 Health magazine cover girl said at the time. "None. Just ban it from your vocabulary."

She said that she was looking for a partner who had the same "positive energy." Garth went on to walk in the Intrepid By AOC show at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2014 last September, and she's now shooting a 10-episode reality series, The Jennie Garth Project, for HGTV, premiering this summer.

She was also spotted recently having lunch with longtime pal and former Beverly Hills, 90120 costar Tori Spelling, who's persevering through her own marital drama, during a break from working on the ABC Family sitcom Mystery Girls.

About her upcoming book, she told People it wasn't a tell-all, but rather a chronicle of "my journey and an introspective look at things I've experienced in life."
