I was being completely facetious yesterday when I wrote the headline ‘Twilight Probably Ruined Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli’s Marriage‘, but guys! It looks like I may have hit the nail on the head with that one! Scallywag and Vagabond claims that it’s got sources close to the couple that claim Peter met a young woman a few years ago while filming the Twilight series in Vancouver, and the two continued a “torrid” affair (their word, not mine) ’til Jennie finally got sick of playing second fiddle to the a presumable vampire-loving twentysomething. From S&V:
Our source tells us, “Peter had been seeing another woman for quite some time. They tried to make it work for the sake of their children and Jennie played housewife for as long as she could but finally had enough.”
On the affair, they say, “Jennie knew. As a lot of couples do, they simply grew apart. As the mother of his children, Peter still loves Jennie very much and vice versa.”
So just who is this other woman? Our source tells us a she is a Canadian woman in her late 20?s. “Understandably, she does not want to be identified by the media.” She and Facinelli began what’s being called as a “short, torrid affair” in Vancouver during the filming of the final installment of the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn. When asked if the two were still together or in contact? “No comment,” says the source.
Oh wow. Is anyone really surprised by this, though? I don’t know a whole lot about Peter Facinelli, other than the marriage-to-Jennie-Garth thing and, of course, being Carlisle Cullen, but he seems to strike me as a dude who might jump ship on the things that’ve been there for him through his less-than-impressive, under-the-radar career life if there were a better offer, and if you were that type of person, why would you not take the flattery and obsession of a person who’s probably into you for the character you play on a popular cult series?
Yikes. I don’t know. I suppose that’s kind of how I’m seeing this, and since I pretty much called it on yesterday’s headline, I’m going to go ahead and say that I’m right on this one, too. In short, it sounds like someone may have gotten a little big for his britches, and it finally caught up and bit him on the ass. It’s just too bad that someone as seemingly-sweet as Jennie Garth had to be a casualty of Twilight, too.
