Although actress Jennie Garth claims to be happy that ex-husband Peter Facinelli has moved forward with a new romance, she says the fact that her 11 year old marriage failed still causes her great pain.
Seeing Facinelli go public about a new romance in his life with actress Jamie Alexander doesn’t feel entirely comfortable to her, although she hopes she will get over this regret in time.
“I think there will come a time when it won’t sting so bad,” she told PEOPLE at the Ebay Toy Box Pop-Up Shop in New York City on Thursday. “But I’m not quite there yet.”
It was Garth who filed divorce papers from the actor this past spring and Facinelli brought his new lady to the film premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part II” just last month. The two met in 2011 while filming the movie “Loosies”.
“We’ve been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year,” Jaimie Alexander told Perez Hilton. “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.”
Garth contends she is also beginning to date again, although she would not reveal if she is romantically committed to anyone new. She was, however, seen in public recently with Jason Clark who manages heathcare solutions for Jones Lang Lasalle.
Over the Holidays, the former couple plan on sharing their two daughters.
“We will celebrate really quietly at home this year and then travel to see a friend in Virginia,” she says. “Then their dad is picking them up and taking them skiing, so they have a lot of exciting things going on.”
