Jennie Garth on Peter Facinelli Split: 'It's Unfortunate'

Jennie Garth is finally opening up about her divorce from Peter Facinelli. Oh wait, that's right—she talks about it incessantly. Silly me.

Anyway, the actress stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Thursday, and told Jay what it's like to be newly single.

"It's unfortunate," Garth told the host. "It happens to the best of us. It's something that has been really tough, for sure."
Facinelli filed for divorce on March 28, citing "irreconcilable differences."

"My husband and I, we grew up together, so we are very important people to each other. We have three beautiful daughters."

You might have guessed it, but Jennie has a reality show coming out. Which explains everything.

Her CMT reality series, A Little Bit Country, will premiere April 20. It's basically about living the rural country life with her family.

"I'd always wanted to get the hell out of L.A," Jennie explains. I'm guessing the show is set in Burbank.

"I wanted to experience a different life, and I'd been in L.A. working since I was 14 or 15. I just needed some fresh air," Garth said of uprooting her children and relocating to a rural setting. "I moved my girls to the country and I put them in public school."


Garth calls herself "a country girl" at heart and says she has a lot of animals on her farm.

"I always wanted a cow," she said. "The weird thing is I don’t even drink milk or eat meat!"
