The reality show must go on for Jennie Garth.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress, 39, was in the midst of filming her CMT reality show Little Bit Country when she and Peter Facinelli decided to end their marriage after 11 years. They shared the news with the public on Tuesday, and squashed rumors that any "third parties" led to the split on Thursday.

In a new clip from the upcoming series, posted on ETOnline Friday, Garth opens up about the painful split from the Breaking Dawn actor, 38 — and the prospect of raising daughters Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5 as a single mom.

"Being out here on my own with the girls is not going to be easy, but I know it's the right thing for us right now," the twice-divorced star says in a confessional. "I feel it in my heart. I'm excited about what's next."

In an earlier clip, Garth and two of her girls tend to a mother cow and her calf on their farm — with Garth pointing out the touching maternal bond.

"See how close the baby sticks to his mommy," she says. "That's all a baby needs, his momma. Just the two of them. That makes a family."
