Frustrations in Jennie Garth-Peter Facinelli Marriage

By Beck/Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Sad to hear that Jennie Garth and Peter Faciinelli are breaking up after 11 years of marriage. Rumors about what’s behind the split of the couple have been all over the internet, but we can’t help remembering Jennie expressing some of her frustrations in this column last year. She told us she was looking forward to the end of the “Twilight” movies, saying, “I can’t even remember what life is like with a husband. I will be very happy.”

She told us that Peter “tries to go no more than two weeks at a time” without seeing her and their three daughters, 14, 9 and 5. And, “It gets harder the more time he’s gone. It’s more of a challenge to keep everybody connected, and for the girls, they miss him so much, it’s kind of heart-wrenching to see him come and go. But there’s no other way to keep him doing what he does and keep their lives normal…We could become a traveling circus — go with him wherever he goes and homeschool the kids. But they’re enjoying having regular quiet lives and we like them to be able to have that.”

Garth talked, too, about the stresses of “Twilight” in their daughters’ lives, particularly their eldest daughter, who could never be sure whether classmates wanted to befriend her – or get closer to the actor who played Carlisle.

And, she said, “I’ve really been focusing on the family and the girls and keeping things normal for them. Whether it’s a sacrifice or not, I don’t know — but it’s definitely what I want to be doing. I want him to take this time for himself and make the most of it. And besides, with him as the breadwinner, that dynamic works for a marriage.”

Now they’re divorcing, and Jennie’s CMT reality show, “Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country” is set to premiere next month. And so much for normalcy in a Hollywood marriage.
