Many are still trying to come to grips with the latest Hollywood break-up.

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie are really over?!?

It's sad, but it's true... and it's not an isolated separation. Over the years, a number of seemingly perfect marriages have come to an end, some in scandalous fashion (we still haven't forgiven you, Jesse James) and others in a relatively amicable manner.

They cover the world of acting, music and even politics. Remember how you felt when Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries? These splits elicited the exact opposite feeling.

Breaking Dawn's Peter Facinelli recently went public with his new relationship with Jaimie Alexander, and his ex-wife, Jennie Garth, admits that the news stung.

Jennie Garth is going through a rough patch these days now that she and husband Peter Facinelli announced plans to divorce, but she's hanging in there nicely.

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Thursday night, she opened up about life following the breakup and leaving L.A. for more wide open spaces.

After Leno politely brought up the surprising demise of her marriage to the 38-year-old Breaking Dawn star, Garth admitted the divorce hasn't been easy.

"It's unfortunate. It happens to the best of us. Yeah. But it's something that's been really tough on all of us, for sure," she told the late night fixture.

Prodded by Leno, the actress was more than happy to mention that their daughters - Luca Bella, 14; Lola Ray, 9; and Fiona Eve, 5 - are their pride and joy.

"My husband and I, we grew up together, so we are very important people to each other and we do, we have three beautiful daughters," she added.

Garth, who stopped by to promote her new reality series on CMT, Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, also discussed her current zip code and living on a ranch.

"I always wanted to get the hell out of L.A. and experience a different life," she said. "I've been in L.A. working since I was 14 and 15, and I just needed fresh air."

"So… I moved my girls to the country and put them in public school."

Peter Facinelli has made it official and filed for divorce from Jennie Garth after 11 years of marriage, citing the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences."

The actor is seeking joint custody of their three daughters.

According to Facinelli, they separated on January 1 - more than three months before the split was announced - after nearly 11 years of marriage.

After they confirmed their surprising split on March 13, Facinelli, 38, and Garth, 39, stepped out separately in public without their wedding rings.

The ex-couple and parents to Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5, briefly reunited last weekend for a shopping trip to a toy store with Lola and Fiona.

Says Garth of the split from her husband of 10 years:

"You get the rug pulled from under you. I have no landscape of what my future will look like, where before I had something that I can count on."

Since the split, Garth and Facinelli have shared parenting of the girls, who have been living with their mom on the family's Santa Ynez, Calif. ranch.

Garth has a new CMT reality show, Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, in the works. Facinelli stars in Breaking Dawn Part 2 as well as Nurse Jackie.

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.

The countdown to Breaking Dawn is officially on.

With the first part of the final Twilight Saga chapter schedule for a November 18 release, the hype machine is heading into overdrive, as evidenced by recent magazine covers that featured Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

But those stars step aside below, as a new round of promotional photos focuses on the family Cullen. Click around below to enlarge images of Robert Pattinson, Kellan Lutz and others:

Don't worry, Kellan Lutz and Peter Facinelli. We haven't forgotten about you.

While most attention paid to male stars of the Twilight Saga is centered around Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, these two studs aren't exactly hard on the eyes themselves, are they?

Lutz and Facinelli joined their Eclipse co-stars at that movie's Los Angeles premiere last night. Both were accompanied by pretty dates (AnnaLynne McCord and Jennie Garth, respectively) - but let's focus on just the hunks for now.

Compare, contrast, ogle and vote below...

Who looked more handsome on the red carpet?

While a possible courtroom brawl is brewing between Summit Entertainment and Rachelle Lefevre, due to the latter's displeasure with being let go from the Twilight Saga, Peter Facinelli says the Eclipse cast is moving on.

By learning how to fight themselves!

“We start rehearsals tomorrow, the actor that plays Carlisle Cullen told OK! on Tuesday. "We have two weeks of rehearsal and then a week of fight training.”

Why the training? Are the rumors of a Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart relationship causing tension among the cast? Hardly.

Facinelli cites the movie's plot as the basis for impending fisticuffs.

"What happens in Eclipse is Victoria comes back and she builds an army of newborn vampires, which are freshly bitten vampires which are basically blood crazed and she’s trying to get this army to come after us so that she can get to Bella and so we team up with the werewolves to attack all these newly bitten vampires.”

As for what fans can expect in the third installment of this franchise, the actor said:

Eclipse has more action in it and so I’m excited to get in there and have Carlisle roll his sleeves up a little bit and get into fight stuff.”

It's been a good summer already for Facinelli. He plays Dr. Fitch Cooper on the Showtime hit Nurse Jackie.
