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.
