5 Reasons Jennie Garth Is Better Off Without Peter Facinelli

Jennie Garth & Peter Facinelli
It broke my heart yesterday to hear that teen queen Jennie Garth and vampire hottie Peter Facinelli joined the ranks of thousands of other Hollywood couples and called it quits. It made me sad, because, unlike tons of other celeb pairs who clearly don't belong together, they actually seemed like the real deal; they seemed to be in it for the long haul. But today I'm changing my tune. Today I'm saying good. Today I'm saying Jennie Garth is ten thousand times better without Peter because rumors are swirling around that he was a lyin', cheatin' good-for-nothin'. Lame!

So, less than 24 hours later, I'm officially on Team Jennie. Not only because I worked with her for three years on a TV show (humble brag alert!), but because, seriously, who needs a husband who (allegedly) cheats? Not Kelly Taylor. So, here are five reasons Jennie Garth is better off without Peter Facinelli.


1. She can finally get a break from all things Twilight. Talk about a franchise that's easy to get sick of. The screaming girls, the endless junkets and premieres, the dealing with Peter trying to "get into character" by sleeping in a coffin during the day. No thanks. Jennie, now you can resume life as normal.

2. And while we're on the subject, I'm just gonna say it: Peter Facinelli does not look good as a blonde. Yeah, there's something sort of sexy about Carlisle Cullen, but I think it's just the whole "him being a vampire" thing. When you really look at him as Dr. Cullen -- the blonde hair isn't working. So, in a way, Jennie dodged a bullet. Clearly, that's what he's going to look like when he's old and gray. No thanks.

3. She can show off her hot Dancing With the Stars body to someone else. Someone who will appreciate that fine specimen. Did you see that mom of three on that show? Damn! Choke on that, Peter.

4. She can watch 90210 reruns in peace like the rest of us. It probably is a little weird to crawl up on the couch with a pint of soy ice cream and watch a marathon of ... yourself, but the show was so good! And like a fine wine, it gets better with age. Seriously, sometimes it really is the only thing that will fix a craptastic day.

5. She can finally date Dylan! Because for the love of all that is holy, that's how it's meant to be!
