Fans of Beverly Hills, 90210's Dylan McKay and Kelly Taylor may never get the happy ending they so desperately want. Star Jennie Garth appeared on Good Morning America on March 5 to talk about her memoir, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde, when she touched on her divorce from hubby Peter Facinelli and the rumors that she was dating her former costar Luke Perry.

After 11 years together, Garth, 41, and Facinelli, 40, finalized their divorce in June 2013. And though fans were distraught, they immediately hoped the mother of three would move on to her 90210 love interest Perry. 

But Garth says Perry is "like a brother," though she appreciates the fans' interest. 

"It's just Kelly and Dylan, people just have this image in their mind," she admitted. "Our fans are so loyal from that show, and we're so grateful."

Garth has no problems talking about her personal life, pouring out many details on her relationships and divorce into her memoir.  

"In some ways [writing was] cathartic and very eye-opening for myself to take a look and see how my life has progressed and all the things that have happened and how they've molded me into the person I am today," she said. 

She also opens up about growing up on the popular '90s drama, continuing, "We had a great time. What an experience, I wouldn't trade it for the world. In some ways I missed out on a lot of things. But in a lot of ways I was very lucky."

Now she's preparing to return to television with her 90210 costar Tori Spelling in a new comedy, Mystery Girls, which they are executive producers on and star in. 

"She and I are so thrilled to be working together again," Garth said of her pal.
