Jennie Garth has been on one helluva ride lately!!
After struggling to save her marriage to Peter Facinelli, he finally gave up and filed for divorce. And this comes at a time when she's trying to dive back into her career! Ick..
NOT the most convenient time to go through all this BS! But she's making it as best she can.
She opens up and reveals:
[The timing of everything] is probably the hardest part. When I started to take this show on, I wasn't headed down this road. It happened in the middle of filming the show, and now part of doing any kind of job as an actress is following through and doing the press circuit for the show, doing interviews, and people want to talk about it.
And, I am okay talking about it, but it's certainly not … something you want to talk about.
[It] was something we were working through together. As anybody who's been through it, it's always kind of shocking when it ends up finally happening. But it was sad for our family unit. We're a really great family, and we always will be, because we have three beautiful daughters together. Peter is still really involved with them.
Oh well that's good to know!! We're already heartbroken enough with this story, LOL!!
Thankfully she has the peace and tranquility of the country to keep her sane. She says it gives her "really great perspective and clarity."
She also insisted his Twilight fame had NOTHING to do with the divorce:
There was nothing like that going on. I was very happy for him and so happy to be at home with the kids and enjoying my 'early retirement.' I didn't want to work at that time. I just wanted to be at home on the farm.
So there U have it!! Fame didn't destroy this.
It was just a horrible, sad crumbling of a relationship that we're so sad about!!
Now excuse us while we get our kleenex…
