When Jennie Garth took a tumble during the fifth season of Dancing With the Stars, she knew that her daughters were watching — right alongside millions of other television viewers. Her thoughts immediately turned not to her standing on the show, but to how she could turn the incident into a learning experience for Luca Bella, 11, Lola Ray, 6 next month, and Fiona Eve, 2. "I had to go home and make it right with them," the 36-year-old actress explained during a Wednesday appearance on The Bonnie Hunt Show. The lesson?

"It happened, and then you get back up, and you keep going."

Describing the girls as "so strong," Jennie shared that they "have some amazing dance moves now, from watching the show." One show they won’t be watching their mom on is 90210; Jenny revealed that it’s off-limits for now, and instead, the girls watch Miley Cyrus and Raven-SymonĂ©

Luca, Lola and Fiona are Jenny’s children with husband Peter Facinelli.
