Nine months after separating from Peter Facinelli, Jennie is ready to move on, even though she still feels moments of ‘excruciating pain’.
Jennie Garth has opened up about her new found feelings since her separation from Peter Facinelli. Jennie and Peter were married for 11 years before they split up early last year, and Peter has since began dating his Nurse Jackie co-star Jaimie Alexander, while Jennie has remained single. But now she admits that she is ready to date again. You go girl! Read on for all the details.
Jennie Garth’s Divorce From Peter Facinelli — Her Excruciating Pain
Jennie spoke about the pain of dealing with her divorce from Peter, with whom she has three daughters, Luca, 15, Lola, 10, and Fiona, 6.
“When I’m in excruciating pain, like with what I’ve been through with my breakup and that grief and loss that’s just immobilizing, it helps to remember that it only lasts for 13 to 15 minutes, max. And then it’s over,” Jennie said to Health magazine. “Your mind is ready to go to something else. You might come back to it, but it helps to just know that that pain is not going to last forever.”
And the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress has since moved on, as she revealed that she is ready to date again. “I’m learning to date again,” she says. “Looks aren’t important to me anymore. I like positive energy.”
What a great attitude!
Jennie, 40, had previously admitted that she found it tough when Peter began his new relationship, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported that she said it “stings” her to see him with Jaimie.
“I think there will come a time when [seeing Peter with Jaimie] won’t sting so bad. But I’m not quite there yet,” said Jennie, adding “You know, I am happy that he is happy, though.”
