Jennie Garth: “I’m Excited About What’s Next”

As news of her split from her husband of 11 years Peter Facinelli went public this week, actress Jennie Garth says that she’s “excited” about what lies ahead.

In her new CMT reality show, Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country, the former 90210 star and her girls Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, leave LA behind for a simpler life on a farm in Santa Ynez Valley, California.

“Being out here on my own with the girls is not going to be easy, but I know it’s the right thing for us right now,” the newly single mom says in a clip. “I feel it in my heart. I’m excited about what’s next.”

Earlier, as she and her daughters watched a cow tend to its calf, Jennie couldn’t help but notice the bond between mother and child, saying, “See how close the baby sticks to his mommy? That’s all a baby needs, his momma. Just the two of them. That makes a family.”

Jennie and Peter announced their divorce earlier this week, saying that they “both share the same deep love and devotion to our children.”

    “See how close the baby sticks to his mommy? That’s all a baby needs, his momma. Just the two of them. That makes a family.”

    I hope she didn’t say that to her kids nothing good will come from bad mouthing her Ex to her kids.

    I bet all she meant was wel be ok without dad here all the time. of course hel still be involved.shes just trying to reassure the kids that she can take care of them and theyl be safe and happy. Just reassuring them in this huge change in their lives. They actually moved last fall,a year and a half ago. Which makes me think they have been separated for quite a while now and just now decided to announce the divorce. They figured they couldnt keep it quiet much longer with the show coming out. 🙁

    Yes so exciting to see what’s next: holidays where your kids are split between homes, having to split up the school week in some cases and having to sleep in a new house, dealing with Mom and Dad having new boyfriends/girlfriends, having to start dating all over again. Having your stuff in two separate households so you never know what’s what. So exciting….

    I can’t see being excited about dating someone new, splitting holidays with the girls and the ex, having the girls have to sleep in a new household and deal with new boyfriends/girlfriends.

    They have actually had that ranch for many years.

    Divorce is hard on kids, two separate homes is hard on kids, dating is hard on kids, holidays are hard on kids when their parents are divorced.
