Quotables: And Now Peter Facinelli’s Side of the Story

“I recently got divorced from my wife, which is really painful. It’s very painful to break up with somebody when you’ve been together for 17 years and you have kids. Jen and I are doing very well. She’ll always be in my life – I love her. [We're both] very dedicated to being great parents.”

Yeah. It’s just a shame that only one of these people was very dedicated to being a great spouse. Because nothing says “I’m an awesome husband!” quite like dangling your trousersnake in the path of any and all semi-decent-looking Twilight freaks that stalk your ass in the backwoods of Canada while your wife sits at home, hoping and praying that she doesn’t have to endure the public embarrassment of you filing for divorce. Oh, and thinking you’re “teh hot” because you play THE DAD of a sensual, magnetic vampire.

OK. I’m officially done talking about this guy. He showed up as a blip on my radar for confirming my suspicions that he is, indeed, high-caliber douchenozzle, and now that I’ve used up all of my stupid Twilight jokes, I’m through, alright? I’m through.

Go crawl back into Lifetime movie obscurity, Peter.

Quotables: Jennie Garth Talks Divorce

“I was very resistant. I didn’t want it to happen. It took me some time to come to peace with it. … He would do everything he could to fly back every weekend [during 'Twilight' filming]. It took a real toll on our marriage. I’ve gone through my darkest parts and I’m coming out of it. I’m okay. I don’t know what the future holds, but then I’ve never been a planner. And maybe that’s a good thing.”

Man, I feel really sad for Jennie over this. These two were married for eleven years (that’s a long time, even by Hollywood standards), and this is the cumulative result of loving someone and tolerating them and supporting them and bearing three of their children? F-ck that noise! Peter Facinelli is a big f-cking douchebag who doesn’t deserve even an iota’s worth of fame that he got from ‘Twilight’. His character portrayal of the selfless and loving Dr. Carlisle Cullen was done to the smuggest, most pretentious of levels, but what do you expect – this bag of dicks is one of the smarmiest motherf-ckers going.

Normally I’d say, “Hey, you know. We don’t really know what goes on in a person’s relationship with their significant other, so how can we judge,” but I’m saying this with complete and utter confidence: Peter Facinelli is, for sure, a fame-whoring, lying, cheating piece of trash that’d be better left on the side of the road. For compost. I can’t wait to see what his career ends up like once all of this ‘Breaking Dawn‘ business is over. I mean, come on. It’s not like anyone in production really thinks he gave any kind of stellar performance worthy of the lifetime guarantee of half-decent movie roles or anything.

Sources say that Facinelli filed for divorce from Jennie and cited irreconcilable differences. I guess that would be true, because all vaginas are different and there’s no reconciling one from the other once you’ve got the taste for meat from another country.


Oh My God, ‘Twilight’ Did Ruin Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli’s Marriage!

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.

Twilight Probably Ruined Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli’s Marriage

Because duh! Why would you want to bang a dried-up 90210 actress with bad veneers when there are young women out there who’d give their blood to sleep with Dr. Carlisle Cullen? Duh! From the soon-to-be ex-partners:

“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.”

Though no real reasons have been cited for the split, E! is speculating that this divorce has been a long time coming, and says that the couple may living apart for at least a year now:

Aside from confirming the sad separation, reps for the couple aren’t commenting on details surrounding their break-up, though rumors of trouble in paradise have plagued the couple since last year, with the most fervent speculation of an impending split coming last July, with reports claiming the couple had even taken to living separately.

Crazy, huh? These guys were married for something like eleven years or something. I wonder what happened – if there was some kind of big scandal, or if it was just something as simple as conflicting work schedules. … What’s that? Jennie isn’t working now, you say? Oh. I guess careers do sometimes interfere with personal relationships then, huh? Pete’s vampire/club appearance business is all but blowing up, and what’s Jennie done lately? Dancing With the Stars? In 2007? Yeah. Talk about a total success incompatibility.

Jennie Garth Doesn’t Know How To Keep a Promise


Jennie Garth attended a TJMaxx event in New York City and was asked about Robert Pattinson’s love life.  Garth’s husband, Peter Facinelli plays Pattinson’s father in the Twilight movies, so the reporter rightly thought Jennie might have some inside info.  Her reply?  “I can’t say [if it’sKristen Stewart or Nikki Reed], because that would be breaking my promise to [husband Peter Facinelli], but he is dating one of them!” 

Well, well, well.  I guess for all the vampire fans out there who care, which one do you think Pattinson is doing?  If this is even real, and I wonder if it’s not all a publicity stunt, I’m voting Kristen Stewart based on her refusal to discuss her co-star.

Happy Family!

Jennie Garth Discusses Her Young Daughter’s Illness

Oh, poor Jennie Garth!

I had no idea she’d been going through something like this.

Apparently her 5-year-old daughter, Lola, recently got very sick and no one could figure out what was wrong with her.

“I was basically locked in a closet with her for three months.”

Leaving all vanity behind, “I didn’t exercise or eat healthy,” she adds. “I had been a 27 in my jeans after Dancing With the Stars and I was so excited. But it really went back quickly. I definitely gained inches and a size.”

Finally, doctors were able to diagnose her daughter’s ailment. “It turned out to be a form of JRA [Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis]) and we treated her and it’s in remission,” says Garth. “It was tough, but she’s better now.”

Jennie’s father passed away during the same time period. I guess life still does suck unbelievably some times, no matter how rich or famous you are.

Aw, Jennie, if it’s any consolation, you were totally the best part of 90210 on Tuesday night.
