We’ve been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year. It was one of those things where I’d been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded. It’s very new to me and it’s scary, but it’s also something we don’t want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart … It makes me feel really good. He’s a good guy with a great family and I couldn’t be any luckier.
—Jaimie Alexander, or Peter Facinelli‘s new girlfriend, on her relationship with Peter Facinelli, because it’s not at all too soon to be all publicly soppy and pie-eyed over your boyfriend who’s barely out of the mourning period of his divorce. No doubts Jennie Garth and the couple’s children are just pleased as punch that Jaimie is thrilled to have taken Jennie’s very own problem child off her hands, and to be so vocal about it in public? Already? Well. That’s a classy move right there, folks. Classy, classy, classy.
Later on in the interview, Jaimie praises Peter’s fashion sense, saying that he’s already choosing her outfits for her (so they’re obviously already f-cking). Jaimie had this to say: “Peter put this coat with this dress! … He picks out his own clothes, and I think, of course that he looks handsome in everything.”
Gosh, isn’t this just so, so wonderful?
Oh, OK. I get all of Jennie Garth‘s vocal angst now that I know that Peter Facinelli already has a new girlfriend.
Here’s a bit from Us Magazine:
With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 premiering worldwide this week, Peter Facinelli made a slightly quieter debut Nov. 15: A new girlfriend.
In NYC on Thursday night, Facinelli, 38, attended a screening of the franchise’s hugely anticipated fifth installment at Landmark Sunshine theater, with an official afterparty at hotspot Finale.
His date for the evening? Actress Jaimie Alexander, who has costarred with Facinelli in episodes of Nurse Jackie as well as the film Loosies (Facinelli also wrote the screenplay). According to a witness, the stunning 28-year-old brunette hung back as Facinelli posed on the red carpet with costars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene. (Their costars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are promoting the film overseas.) When cameras weren’t flashing, however, Facinelli and Alexander held hands and quietly stole kisses throughout the night.
“They have been very discreet of their relationship,” a source recently told Us Weekly of the budding romance. Indeed, it’s been eight months since Facinelli and Jennie Garth announced they were separating after 11 years of marriage.
Do I think it’s necessarily a coincidence that Peter’s first new girlfriend is someone that he’s had a relatively lengthy history working with? No, because Peter Facinelli strikes me as the type who pretty much always had someone on the side, and who knows. Maybe Miss Alexander was too young for Peter the first go-round, and that’s when he hooked up with the Canadian local that ended his marriage to Jennie Garth.
What a guy, guys.
Happy Father’s Day Peter. Our girls are so lucky to have a daddy like you! Hope you have a great day with them :)
So hey, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! And to all the single mothers out there who do the jobs of both mom and dad (and don’t even start—single fathers are also welcome to be wished a Happy Mother’s Day, too, so don’t even play that it’s like that)! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day and treating the special people in your life—or just yourself—to wonderful, wonderful things.
Up here we have a shining example of what it is to be a good person. Jennie Garth? Well, she’s Tweeting her soon-to-be ex-husband, Peter Facinelli, wishing him a Happy Father’s Day. Me, I don’t know if I’d be able to be as kind as Jennie is, especially if the cheating allegations were true and also, if I’d had the bad sense to marry a douchebag like Peter Facinelli to begin with. Luckily, neither is the case for me, so I don’t have to continue speculating over whether or not I’d be able to be cordial on a day such as this with a dude such as that, because I know if I really dug deep for the answer, I probably wouldn’t like it and neither would you.
Jennie and Peter’s fellow Twitter followers are also singing Jennie’s praises, saying that she’s a class act. Here’s some of the buzz:
you’re a classy lady. Always knew that but now everyone does.
And they are lucky to have such a lovely & classy mother too <3 Happy Fathers day peter!
I don’t know, guys. I’ve suspected it in the past, but maybe my fears are confirmed now—maybe I’m not such a classy lady after all, I don’t know.
“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.
“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.
“Sometimes it lasts in love and sometimes it hurts instead – Adele.”
That up there is Peter Facinelli’s most recent Tweet, presumably aimed at or around his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jennie Garth. So there’s one of two things going on here: one, Peter actually didn’t cheat on Jennie, and she’s the one prodding for a divorce because he’s way too famous for her and all of these red carpet premieres are just so tiring and she’d much, much rather be a nobody and alone than to be superficially famous by association because of her Twilight-ed out husband. Or, of course, there’s option two, which is Peter’s actually a really shitty asshole who likes to pour salt in the wounds of those he’s left behind in his wake of fatal seduction and romance and he’s telling Jennie (quite flippantly, I might add) that, yes, sometimes love lasts, but sometimes it just doesn’t and that hurts, but it is what it is. Translation, Jennie? GET OVER IT.
There is a third option that’s sort of on the table, but it’s not nearly as intriguing as the first two, but I’ll lay it on you anyway, because it’s something after all, isn’t it? Third option would be that maybe Peter just likes the song. I know, it’s not the most scintillating of excuses to be Tweeting Adele lyrics, but it, like the second option, is what it is.
Call it – is Peter a secret asshole who’s gleefully reveling in being able to bone every vampire hunter in a ninety-mile radius, hurting over his split with Jennie and willing to vent it publicly, or does Peter just really, really love Adele?
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.
