Is there anything better than raising teenagers?

If you ask Jennie Garth, the answer is a mixed bag of craziness and gratitude.

"Everyone drives me crazy in a different way but I honestly know that I have to share them with their dad and they leave my house," she explained during Wednesday's all-new Meredith Vieira Show. "I love every second [when they're home], even when they are driving me nuts."

The loveable Beverly Hills, 90210 star split from actor Peter Facinelli in March 2012 after 11 years of marriage. They now share time with their three daughters including Fiona Eve, 5, Lola, 11, and Luca, 14. 

Garth has quickly learned that the time with her kids flies by every single time.

"I don't take one second for granted with them," she shared with Meredith Vieira. "But they do try to kill each other." Gotta love the teenage (or even pre-teen) years.

Garth also reflected on her time filming 90210 with her co-stars including Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering and Jason Priestley.

One moment she will never forget from the decade-long series is the moment she almost died while shooting.

"We were filming a scene in the ocean and for some reason, I jumped off my jet ski thing and [Luke Perry] ran right over me," she shared. "I went underwater and was unconscious and then I woke up and there was a bunch of people around me asking me questions."

Although she was able to make a full recovery, Garth can't help but feel grateful for her well-being after the accident.

"He was freaking out," she shared when describing Perry's reaction. "He thought he killed me."

As described in her tell-all book, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde, Garth immediately got an apology from Perry and she was even able to get some revenge. Don't worry, it wasn't too dangerous. 

And for those worried that their friendship was harmed after that situation, think again. The fan-favorite TV couple (Hello, Kelly and Dylan) has remained close and has even developed a TV sitcom together.

90210 forever, ladies and gentlemen.
