Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth end their marriage

After 11 years of marriage, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli have announced that it's over.

Reps for both actors confirm to CNN that Facinelli, 38 and Garth, 39, are going their separate ways. The two have three daughters together: Luca, 14; Lola, 9; and Fiona, 5.

Facinelli and Garth say in a joint statement, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”

While Facinelli has been fawned over by "Twilight" fans for his portrayal of Dr. Carlisle Cullen, Jennie Garth is near and dear to the hearts of "Beverly Hills, 90210" fans. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two met on the set of an ABC TV movie in 1996, and wed in 2001.

Garth also has a CMT reality series in the works, and a rep for the show tells CNN that Facinelli doesn't appear in it but the couple's split will be dealt with throughout the series.

Called "Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country," the show is still in production, and is expected to bow on CMT on April 20 at 9 p.m. ET.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours these days, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It's pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.

    She will be fine. Unlike most of the hollywood women, she has aged like a good bottle of wine. She is hotter now than when she was 21.

    I had a huge crush on her during the 90210 days so I was devistated when she got married. In time I came to accept it and I am very sorry to hear it's over. I hope she can still find happiness in her provate life as well as her public life. Hang in there, Jennie, everything will be alright.

    Thank you for a common sense story, I am jeff, I met a wealthy girl, Nicole, via~–(My Name)~-a wealthy singles dating club. She told me most guys of her hometown just love her money than her, but she helps me a lot from material and spirit for my sincerity to her, and next week we will hold the wedding in Miami. So both of us think money will never stop your steps getting the true love kiss, as long as you treat it serious! Maybe you are the next one to be loved!Good luck to you, and remember to share with your friends!

    I love how everyone just assume's he cheated. Maybe he did maybe she did, or maybe they just grew apart like so many couples do.

      Hey we are not all like that! There are women who do that as well! Heck I have been burned in the past but when I date a new person I give her the benefit of the doubt and reset starting new! The one thing I hate is dating a woman who brings old infidelities into the relationship and guys that ruin women for the rest of us good guys! We have to constantly pay for their mistakes!

      Look it is simple... If there is no trust in your relationship then there is no relationship period! Thinking the way that you do will never get your current relationship (if you have one) to 11 years! My advice to you is give the new guy a chance and don't treat him like your ex because he will not stick around and take the stuff that you are dishing!

      As for Jenny who know... Maybe she found someone on the set of her newest project!

      Take care.

      I cannot believe the insenstive comments and most of them are just trying to get under peoples skin. There is no call for the brutal fat jokes or crass behavior. A majority are just drunk or stoned losers with no job...well maybe something in food service or janitorial related. Anyway, we need to put a stop to this crap.

      How about you and I get together to talk thinks over. I will whip out my schlong and you can meet mr one-eyed willie! Let me introduce you to my friend Ben....Ben Dover. I just wanna rock your world. Do a little m-diving and then I will take you from behind! What say you! Lata.

    I really thought they would last forever. In Hollywood, 11 years seems like an eternity.

      A very striking beautiful monogomous? Couple. Yes a rarity for 11 years in Hollywood. She's older and maybe more mature? She should meet an older more mature man.Having three children together? I guess that wasn't enough glue.I feel for them.although they probably will get along better without the pressures of monogomy.A true rarity.

      Hey ccrizz. Wake up. Lay off the sauce! She is older and more mature? She is fricken 7 months older than him. Why does she need to rush out and find an older more mature man? Maybe she wants a 30-year old to jump in the sack with. They are asking for privacy and respect, not your lame opinion on monogamy and maturity. I guess u need to go back to your area of expertise, pumpin your lez-bo friend with a giant strap-on!!
