The couple, whose split is expected to be covered in Garth's upcoming reality show, "Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country," said little more in their initial statement, other than the fact that they remain committed to raising their three children.

Some readers of "The Hunger Games" might find an eerie resemblance between the book's fictional televised teen death matches and the way we consume reality TV today.

Except, we're not sitting around watching reality competitions where contestants are expected to fight to the death, which is the premise of author Suzanne Collins' dystopian books.
