Jennie Garth and Tiffani Thiessen’s rumored feud explained

Jennie Garth and Tiffani Thiessen were two of the biggest TV stars of the ’90s, and they landed roles that made them quite iconic when it comes to nostalgic television. Garth is, of course, best known for portraying Kelly Taylor on Beverly Hills, 90210 (a role she reprized in 2008’s 90210 reboot), while Thiessen co-starred alongside her as Valerie Malone on the teen drama, while He the Best was known for portraying Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell.

Of course, working together on such a big show meant the two became pretty close at the time. So close, in fact, that Thiessen was a bridesmaid when Garth married her now-ex-husband Peter Facinelli, and Theissen was even there when they welcomed their first child together, daughter Luca, in 1997. “We were very, very close,” Thiessen told The Howard Stern Show in 2012, revealing that they became closer after her Beverly Hills, 90210, as she claimed many of her female co-stars weren’t the nicest to her at the time (something Garth reportedly apologized for).

But what happened between these two? Well, it seems a nasty feud has arose.

Tiffani Thiessen fell out with Jennie Garth

Though the two were once tough as thieves, Tiffani Thiessen admitted on The Howard Stern Show in 2012 that she and Jennie Garth had a mysterious falling out that damaged their once-close bond. “I was the one who was hurting, let’s just say that,” she told the radio host (via Us Weekly), adding, “It’s funny, our relationship started very rough and ended the way it started.” have the two ever reconciled? Well, Thiessen hinted they weren’t nearly as close as they used to be, but did hint that there’s no bad blood. “There’s water under the bridge… I’ve moved on. I wish her the best,” she said.

The drama seemed to be reignited in 2017, however, when Garth and fellow Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Tori Spelling appeared to shadow Thiessen while appearing on an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. There was an awkward moment when Garth wanted to mention the “Saved By The Bell” star but didn’t. “As a ti- how do you say it?” Garth asked, to which Spelling hit back, “Just say, ‘that we don’t talk about… yeah, we know them as ‘that we don’t talk about.'” That prompted several viewers to call out the couple on Twitter, with one person writing : “They’re just jealous that they don’t have their lives like @TiffaniThiessen. feel bad for her. They act like they’re 12.”

But all is not as it seemed here, at least according to Garth.

Jennie Garth denied throwing shade at Tiffani Thiessen

Although many fans and media accused Jennie Garth of casting shadows in Tiffani Thiessen’s direction, Garth claimed that was not the case. In fact, she accused the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” editors of instigating drama. “[That was a] really weird editing situation,” Garth told Us Weekly. “Tori and I looked at it and we were like, ‘What? Because I swear to god I was referring to the queen who played the character of Valerie and she had a really fancy name like Doolarey, I couldn’t remember it and it didn’t look like it came across,” she added added.

And how was it between you then? Well, it sounds like things are a little better. Garth, who referred to Thiessen as “Tiff,” also revealed she had seen the star at a recent audition and they exchanged pleasantries. “That was weird, go into an audition and there she is! … We did some small talk and it was great,” she said.

Although neither of the two had explicitly confirmed what inspired their argument, we do know that these two have been mired in their similarities for some time. Of course, they both appeared in Beverly Hills, 90210, but Lifetime’s 2014 The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story revealed that Garth actually auditioned to play Thiessen’s Saved By The Bell role back then! However, producers thought Garth was too young to be Kelly Kapowski, so Thiessen got the part (via Hollywood Life). who knew
