    Homegirl is too old for this, shit, even the whole “clubbing with mah friends” in her 40s… Isnt that what they have lounges and prearranged vip sections for?

  2. V4Real says:

    Yeah, TMZ said some of those clubs are notorious for not letting African American males in unless they are huge stars. They also said that the doorman was going to let Jenny and her female friends in but told the guys no.

    I don’t know why Jennie was trying to get into a night club but then again she’s 40, not dead. But anyways I’m kind of side eying this story since TMZ made the claim about some venues treating the not so famous Blacks differently.

    • Wow really? Welp, that sucks.
      There are some Irish pubs in Boston that pull shit like that. Those bars are the ones my friends and I boycott.

    • blue marie says:

      That really sucks but I dunno that I would have cried about it. I’d have given the bouncer the finger and went on my merry way to somewhere else that did want my money.

      • V4Real says:

        I think Jenny is one of those sloppy crying drunks. You know how some are happy drunks and everything is alright with the world, I think she’s the complete opposite.

      • blue marie says:

        The crying drunks always get me, why drink if you’re just going to end up a bawling mess, seems silly. I’m one of those happy drunks you’re talking about although I don’t drink that much anymore. It quit being as much fun when I hit 21.

      • V4Real says:

        I’m also a happy drunk and my friends say I had a tendency to repeat myself a lot. I totally believe it too becasue I often do that on C/B and I’m sober. LOL.

        It’s been years since having a hangover. I don’t quite remember what it feels like, I do but then again I don’t. It’s like giving birth, the worst pain you don’t remember.

    • T.C. says:

      I believe TMZ version of them turning away her Black male friends. Lainey only supports her favs

    • Belle says:

      DM had this story yesterday, and their version was not that she wasn’t allowed in, but that she went to the front of the line, and was told she and her friends had to wait in line. Supposedly, some people who were there said she not only used the ‘do you know who I am’ line, but babbled something about being in the business for 30 years and having 3 kids (not quite sure why she thought that info would get her the star treatment she wanted… LOL). It was said that instead of getting in line, she cried and left.

      LATER, after this not very flattering version of the story was out, her ‘people’ issued a statement that she was upset because the club was only going to let her and the female friends in, but not the males… and she didn’t think that was right.

      Of course, I don’t know what happened, and only read the one story at DM last night… but IMO, the original story seems more credible to me. She bypassed the line, expecting that her party would get special treatment (because she’s been in the business for 30 years and has 3 kids… LOL), but they told her to get in line… so she got upset. The second story about the club refusing to let her male friends in, and her bawling about it because she just didn’t think that was right… sounds like BS PR spin.

      • V4Real says:

        Yes Belle that is so on point with that scene from “Knocked-Up. One of the best scenes in that movie.

        But I’m not sure who is telling the truth because TMZ reported this much earlier than the DM about the bouncers not wanting to let her Black male friends in. The only way I might lean towards that theory is the other reports of certain hot venues in LA not letting Black males in unless they are famous. But who knows, it could have been her hurt feelings mixed with that alcohol buzz she had going on.

      • mayamae says:

        I sometimes cry when I get very angry. If I were somewhere that told me I could go in but my Black friends couldn’t – I might have gotten worked up. I have no tolerance for racism.

    • TG says:

      @V4real – How nice of TMZ for informing us about LA clubs racist policy. Now how about they stop trying to showcase every black person with even an nth of celebrity in a bad light? Seriously they must deliberately search out black celebs (actors, athletes and rappers) and find their problems, whether that be DUI, child support drama or fist fights or bankruptcy filings. Maybe the website is geared towards black people, I don’t know but I find it offensive. However, TMZ is good at getting court docs and police reports for a whole lot of stuff.

      As for Jenny – I just can’t with overgrown adults and parents at that behaving like juveniles. I was born old and have never been into the “scene” thing and able never understood it. Grow the f*ck up.

  3. lunchcoma says:

    I agree with Lainey’s take on the Jenny Garth situation. She could have easily headed this off by calling ahead and making arrangements with the club. Hell, she probably could have found someone to pay her to show up or at least comp her drinks. If she wants to go dragging around a big entourage to places where people probably don’t know who she is, she’s occasionally going to be treated like a regular clubgoer.

  4. roxy750 says:

    Ya seriously she is too old, I am sorry but be a mom and focus on your kids, career not “clubbing” You can still go out for a few drinks but c’mon. She is so not over a bunch of crap and needs major help. It happens after a divorce, sometimes it takes awhile for crap to settle before you realize alot and come to terms…..she will find herself soon…i hope!

    • bondbabe says:

      What an ageist statement! It’s not like she is clubbing every day—she probably needed a break from FOCUSING on being a mom and on her career and the other crap going on in her life—just like everybody.

      However, I will concede the crying (crying, REALLY?) and shenanigans after not being recognized/known is pretty tacky.

      • lucy2 says:

        Agreed – by all means she should go out with friends, have fun, etc. I’d assume the kids were with their dad, so she had a night out. Not a big deal, but crying and tantrums is not good for any adult of any age.

      • Stacey says:

        Whatever. Clubbing is for people in their 20′s. and you know what, drinking formula out of a bottle is for infants. thats not being ageist, its reality. Clubbing is Not classy not cute not funny at all for a 40 year old mother of 3 . There are plenty of other ways to blow off steam besides drInking in a club. she needs to get a grip or else she will be joining the Brandi Glanville first wives club. she looks ridiculous crying outside the club. Peter is a loser and its sad she is still not over him.

    • jaye says:

      Sooooo…once a woman becomes a certain age and has children, she’s not allowed to have a fun night out at a club w/friends? She’s supposed to just put on her khakis, twin set, and sensible shoes, buy a mommy mobile and call it a day? BUUUULLLs**t!

    • Jaded says:

      OMG @ Stacey & Roxy! I can’t believe I’m reading this – so is there some sort of “old geezer” alarm that does off at the door if someone over 40 wants to hear some music and dance? How about Madonna? She’s a huge clubber so will they suddenly start turning her away at the door? Jeezuz, I’m over 60 and I love heading out with some pals to go clubbing in my town. And believe me, we don’t get turned away from the door and all the younger crowd think we’re cool. Sheesh, I can’t believe the ageism…..I’ll just go pour myself some Ovaltine and knit some socks for my cats now…..

  5. Serena says:

    Oh man, I feel bad and embarassed for her. I man she should know how these things works, right? still, I’m rooting for jennie.

  6. Mia4S says:

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with a night out at a club at 42. Nothing.

    There is a MASSIVE amount wrong with crying and pulling a “don’t you know who I am?” while trying to get into the club. That’s Lohan level.

  7. HadleyB says:

    I wonder if she did it on purpose – acting out. She really hasn’t been in news lately and with the new book coming out … perfect timing.

    I mean, other wise she is pretty bland and boring as a celeb.

  8. Mingy says:

    That photo of Charlie Hunnam on d-listed! HOT DAMN!!! I gawked at it for way too long..

  9. K.B. says:

    The only thing sadder than a 40 year old going clubbing is 50-something men hanging out in college bars. This is what happens when magazines loudly proclaim that 30 is the new 20 and 40 is the new 30. Why does society encourage Peter Pan Syndrome? Grow up. There’s nothing wrong with going to dinner with a group of friends and acting your age.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Or even going out to a bar and doing some drinking. Just depends on the bar. There are a few in my town that are pretty varied in the age of their patrons. They aren’t clubs, but they are bars. I like that atmosphere better, honestly, even if the crowd is older than my 24 years. They are more calm, more quiet and more likely to keep me out of trouble.

    • Mel says:

      But what does “acting your age” even mean?
      (“Acting” seems to be the operative word here – as in: pretending, as in: playing by someone else’s rules.)

      I know I have never ever acted my “age” – not as a child, not as an adult – because for a very long time I was blissfully unaware of any age-associated “rules”.
      I am not quite as unaware of them now, but I still ignore them. I “act” what I really feel like.
      That must be why I am so much happier (and, so I am told, look so much better) than so many of my peers appear to be.
      (Yep, even if I say so myself – still true.)

    • Emily C. says:

      I have always hated clubbing. It was the only way to go dancing, though, so I sucked it up and did it, and anyway that’s what my friends were doing. I am very happy that I’m no longer expected to go out and get drunk any more, and surrounded by a bunch of strangers at that. It’s one of the many perks of no longer being in one’s early 20s. One gets to do things that are actually fun without being told they’re no fun because they think there are better things in life than getting wasted.

    • Becky1 says:

      I’m 41 and haven’t been clubbing since I was in my early 30′s (and even then I felt old). I don’t see the appeal at all at this point in my life. How old was Jennie Garth when she married and had kids? I remember back in their 90210 heyday Shannon Doherty and Tori Spelling going out and being photographed partying at clubs but not Jennie Garth. Maybe Jennie didn’t do the whole clubbing thing when she was young and is having some kind of mid-life crisis where she’s trying to relive her youth.

      My advice to the twentysomethings (for what it’s worth)-party, club, etc. now while you are young and it’s age appropriate. Get it out of your system you won’t be in your 40′s acting like you’re in your 20′s.

  10. raindrop says:

    Damn, that’s pretty ageist. What’s wrong with older women going out to have fun? I don’t like clubs but have nothing against people who do. That said, throwing a tantrum is incredibly childish.

    • Chris says:

      Sexist too! It’s ok for 39 year-old Leo to hang in the club. Or is it? Still…no crying. Get it together Garth.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I don’t have a problem with older women going clubbing, either. People don’t stop enjoying dancing when they hit a certain age, and there are places where most of the people in the crowd will be over 30.

      A C-list celebrity having a tantrum because she’s not being sufficiently pampered and coddled is pathetic, however,

    • V4Real says:

      Damn valid point made by all of you.

    • Stacey says:

      She needs to act her age not her shoe size! She is a mother of 3! Its a pathetic site to see her getting denied entrance to a nightclub and then crying about it. So if she was doing keg stands and puking in the bushes, thats acceptable behavior too? Because it would be ageist to say she should know better and is too old to be acting like that?

      She’s acting like a loser.

      • jaye says:

        “So if she was doing keg stands and puking in the bushes, thats acceptable behavior too?”

        Oh come the hell on. You know that’s not the point anyone is making when they say that your comments are ageist. The argument is that it is PERFECTLY FINE for someone who is in their forties to go out have a drink and doing some dancing. I get so tired of people telling me that I or anyone over the age of 30 can’t have fun and having said fun is shirking your parental responsibility. That is total BS. It’s the same thing as someone making a blanket statement that 20 year old people are immature idiots. I go out to a club with my girlfriends every now and then and all we do is enjoy a cocktail or two and dance until our feet are sore. We’re not acting a fool or cougars on the prowl for some young meat. You can be out at a club and still be classy. Our kids are happy, well adjusted and college bound. Imagine that.

  11. wonderwoman21 says:

    What is wrong with these people (celebrities)? I’m 25 and know better than to act like this; Jennie Garth is way too old for these embarrassing shenanigans. Sometimes i envy celebrities but the reality is pretty ugly most of the time.

  12. lucy2 says:

    “Jaden Smith will star in another Karate Kid movie.” Why are we being punished?! :D

    Off topic – any other Justified fans watch the season finale? I thought it was really good, and it made me very excited for the final season next year.

  13. Jh says:

    I LOVE this headline. Not sure why, but it just tickled my cockles.

  14. Kelly says:

    I’m cringing. She legit cried because they wouldn’t let her in and because they didn’t know “who she was”???? Who knew she was such a vapid loser with an overblown sense of importance.

  15. Mabry says:

    I hope she was just having a bad moment and not like this all the time.

  16. magpie says:

    Cringing at all the “she’s too old to go clubbing” comments. Dudes the same age do it and no one says “he’s too old”. Sure you can go to a bar, but maybe you want to, I dunno…have fun?? Blow off steam? Listen to loud music, mingle and DANCE!!! It’s not like she’s seen every weekend falling over drunk and making a fool of herself. Yeah, her reaction was sad, but damn people let the “older” ladies go out too. So if you’re a woman 40+ you should only go to places where you sip white wine and have “polite” conversation?? How sexist and ageist.

    • Emily C. says:

      There are so many things to do in life that don’t involve either clubbing or sitting around having “polite” conversation. I think it’s more sad that a 40-year old goes clubbing than a 20-something because I expect 40-year olds to realize there are so many better and more enjoyable things to do with their time.

      • magpie says:

        For instance? I am 40, a mother and I have a girls night out every now and then where we want to have fun and that involves dancing to loud music (which means yes, a club). Of course I am not living my life like I was in my 20s, but hell if anyone tells me I’m too old to be doing anything.

      • yuya says:

        Then wouldn’t the same thing apply to someone in their 20′s? That there are many more enjoyable things to do with their time? I’m 46 and maybe go clubbing once a year. I love dancing and listening to music and when my friends and I do go, we have a blast.

        You sound like a blast at parties Emily.

  17. Lotta says:

    I’m over 40, married with three kids and I still want to go clubbing and to bars sometimes. I still like to dance, have a drink, and some fun. I hope I never stop wanting this, why do you have to start acting like a certain age? I’m still the same person and I still enjoy it, amongst other things like spending time with my family.

  18. Tania says:

    Eh. I’m not really interested in Jennie Garth. I kinda wrote her off because of how she handled her divorce. She came across as very desperate and pathetic, all look at me! I’ve lost weight from my divorce, look how thin I am in my bikini!

  19. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Yeah, sit at home with your brats and don’t go out ever again divorced women! Sorry, I do think some of the ageist comments are unfair. I’m old enough to remember when Jenni was a young starlet, young enough to still like a very occasional night out. It is straight up embarassing she pitched a fit, which is where I think the “act your age” thing comes into play. She should have had more dignity, she should not have worn yellow pyjama pants out in public, and she should have just gone somewhere else to get her drink on. The fact she tweeted about is does imply she was genuinely upset/slighted, which, y’know, perspective lady. You were once on a teen show that was quite popular, have some sense of humour that you are not anyone’s idea of A list. You don’t see Andrea or Dylan pulling this crap, hey just head on down to the Peach Pit After Dark! Crap I’m old. It implies a true lack of self awareness, but maybe she drunk tweeted. She looks like a hot mess in the pics I’ve seen.

  20. Bridget says:

    I feel like the people that keep saying 40 is tooold to go to a club haven’t really taken a good look around a club when they go. Because in a normal town, on a normal night, chances are you’ll see people of a whole age of ranges. It turns out clubs want to make money, and a bunch of 21 year olds don’t have a lot of it. Will I likely see my grandmother? Of course not. But people of awhole range of ages like to be able to go out and dance.

  21. silly you says:

    if they wouldn’t let her african american friends in, why would she want to get in? she likes racists? wtf? that can’t be true…if i was one of those guys, i think i might be pissed if my friend was boo-hooing about not getting in a club that wouldn’t have me. wouldn’t the normal reaction be, ‘f*@k you, racist club! those are my friends!’? i hope so, damn!

  22. Juu says:

    I just read on a Brazilian news site that Sharon Stone had a stroke and is hospitalized. O.o

  23. Liz says:

    As a 39-year-old getting ready to go out and see a couple of bands (on a work night, no less!), I find some of these ageist remarks annoying. Hell, I was even IN a band until I was 37. And my sister’s still in a band at 45.

    If you take care of yourself, you’ll find you really don’t feel any different at that age than you did at 25, so why stay home watching tv or reading every damn night? Yeah, I have a real job now and don’t get to do so as often, but I don’t feel stupid for still enjoying time at a punk show with friends, and I find that the women my age who judge me for it are usually insecure about not having their own interests beyond domesticity.

    Plus, she’s single and maybe lonely. I’m sure Peter has the kids part of the time, too. Yeah, the crying was dumb, I agree with that.

  24. GIrlyGirl says:

    Jennie Garth pulled the “don’t you know who I am?”

    Geez, it seems reasonable that the club might now know about that show you were on which predates the following
