A country girl at heart, Jennie Garth never quite understood the appeal of city life ... and now she's heading out of town with some reality TV cameras in tow.

On April 20, Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country premieres on CMT. The show will follow the newly-single Garth as she and her daughters ditch L.A. for a simpler life.

It's a surprising move for the 38-year-old actress, who has laid low in recent years, but she's clearly looking for a the fresh start - in a fresh location to boot.

Daughters Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, will be relocating with mom to Santa Ynez Valley, Calif., along with a farm-averse assistant and a house full of dogs.

Garth, who just separated from Peter Facinelli after 10 years of marriage, is ready to tackle country life for the first time since leaving her home in rural Illinois.

Although the reality show will deal with Garth's split from Facinelli, whom she married in 2001, the Breaking Dawn actor will reportedly not appear on camera.

As if things weren't painful enough, Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth were blindsided and so hurt by rumors suggesting that his infidelity played a role in their split.

So to set the record straight, the actors told People:

"There are rumors out there which are completely untrue and hurtful to our family. We just want to make it very clear – there are no third parties involved."

The statement, made jointly by Facinelli, 38, and Garth, 39, comes two days after the couple, who wed in 2001, jointly announced their plans to divorce.

The pair, who have three daughters – Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5 – met on the set of TV movie An Unfinished Affair in 1996, and married in 2001.

Facinelli is known for his roles in the Twilight films as well as Nurse Jackie, while Garth played Kelly Taylor on the iconic Fox hit Beverly Hills, 90210.

Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli shocked the world by announcing that they are splitting up after more than 10 years of marriage and nearly 15 as a couple.

The parents of three daughters said that “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children."

What triggered the surprising breakup? According to Radar Online (we know), Facinelli embarked on a “torrid affair” with an unnamed Canadian woman.

“Peter had been seeing another woman for quite some time,” a source told the website Scallywag & Vagabond who was first to report the couple’s split.

“They tried to make it work for the sake of their three children, and Jennie dutifully played housewife for as long as she could but finally had enough.”

The woman is reportedly in her late 20s and they met in Vancouver during the filming of the final installment of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Garth wasn’t blindsided by the affair, according to the report.

“Jennie knew. As a lot of couples do, they simply grew apart,” the source said, but had no comment on whether Peter and the woman are still together.

Last summer, Facinelli and Garth separated briefly, with her staying in their home and him renting a home in Santa Ynez while they worked on things.

After 10 years of marriage, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli have called it quits in one of the most unexpected celebrity breakups in recent years.

"While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children," the duo said in a joint statement.

"We remain dedicated to raising our three beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this difficult time."

Aside from confirming the sad separation, reps for the couple aren't commenting on details surrounding the split amid rumors of trouble in paradise.

The most fervent speculation of an impending split came last July, with reports claiming the couple had already taken to living separately.

In the meantime, while it's very much unclear when exactly the couple officially parted ways, Garth has already unfollowed Facinelli on Twitter.

The Breaking Dawn star and 90210 actress tied the knot in 2001. The now estranged couple are parents to Luca Bella, 14, Lola Ray, 9, and Fiona Eve, 5.

Though Facinelli, at least, is already back to (show) business as usual, having accompanied Luca out to last night's premiere of The Hunger Games.
