Jennie Garth on her divorce from Peter Facinelli: 'I was very resistant'
Now Garth is talking to People about the separation.
"I was very resistant," she says. "I didn't want it to happen. It took me some time to come to peace with it."
Garth attributes the split to the couple's time being increasingly spent apart as Facinelli worked on the "Twilight Saga" movies and his regular role on Showtime's "Nurse Jackie."
The couple issued a statement on March 14 to counter rumors that Facinelli had cheated on Garth.
"There are rumors out there which are completely untrue and hurtful to our family," they wrote. "We just want to make it very clear - there are no third parties involved."
Garth's new reality series, "Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country," premieres on CMT on April 20.
