Jennie Garth will always be there for her friend and former costar Tori Spelling.

Garth, 51, exclusively tells PEOPLE on Friday at the Los Angeles Mission Easter event that she'll always support her Beverly Hills, 90210 costar soon after Spelling, 50, filed for divorce from Dean McDermott.

"I've always stood beside her, behind her, supported her, and I will always continue to do that," Garth says.

The actress also tells PEOPLE how special their friendship is after connecting on the set of Beverly Hills, 90210 as young women. "We bonded, [and] forged a really strong, unique friendship at such a young age," Garth explains. "That kind of bond doesn't ever go away. You know, it's kind of unbreakable."

Last year, the actresses told PEOPLE that their friendship is more like a sisterhood.

"We're different people so of course we're going to see things differently from time to time," Garth told PEOPLE in January 2023. "But we look out for each other, and we love each other."

"It's more than just best friends. We're sisters," added Spelling.

Spelling and Garth's former costar Ian Ziering also showed support for Spelling at the Friday Los Angeles Mission Easter event.

“We support each other through life's ups and downs after the show, we still care about each other,” Ziering, 59, exclusively told PEOPLE. “So whenever there's a victory, we all pull together and lend support and pride, and when there's challenging times, we come together and offer whatever support we can from wherever we are.”

Spelling cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for filing for divorce, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE on Friday.

After 18 years of marriage, McDermott, 57, announced the couple's separation in a now-deleted Instagram post on June 17, 2023 — the same day listed as the day of separation in the filing. He wrote that the pair "have decided to go our separate ways."

Representatives for both Spelling and McDermott did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

In her filing, Spelling requested sole physical custody and joint legal custody of the couple's five children — Beau, 7, Finn, 11, Hattie, 12, and Stella, 15, and Liam, 17 — allowing McDermott visitation time.

Spelling's filing did not disclose whether the pair had a prenuptial agreement in place. She stated that the nature and extent of their respective properties have yet to be determined.
