Jennie Garth’s new CMT series, Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country, debuts April 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Twenty years ago, Garth moved from Urbana, Ill., to Los Angeles to pursue acting and promptly took the Hollywood world by storm as one of the breakout stars of the monster hit, Beverly Hills, 90210. Now she is in search of a simpler life as she moves her family to a seven-acre farm in the countryside of central California, where she hopes to put the pressures of Hollywood aside and experience a new way of life. It’s a move that will either give her the all-American lifestyle she has always dreamed of or turn her family’s world completely upside down. In related news, Garth and her husband, Twilight actor Peter Facinelli have confirmed plans to divorce after 11 years of marriage, People magazine reported Tuesday (March 13). The couple, who have three daughters, met on the set of a TV movie, An Unfinished Affair, in 1996.
