Sad news for Twilight fans, Beverly Hills 90210 fans, and fans of love in general. Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli are divorcing after almost 11 years of marriage. Boo ... Hiss!
The reason reason behind the couple's split remains shrouded in mystery, as, so far, all we the people have gotten is this general statement: "While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time."
Blah, blah, blah, PR, PR, PR ... why are you guys divorcing?! You were so cute together!
Truth be told, we heard rumblings of their being trouble in paradise last year, with rumors saying that the two were living separately. But still. We didn't want to believe it. And by "we" I mean "me."
I mean, what the hell, you guys? They seemed so ... normal, these two. And 11 years? That's the equivalent to what? Seventy-seven in Hollywood years. They seemed to be legit, the real deal. There was never any "why are those two together?" business regarding them. They were one of the few couples that actually made sense.
I guess this just goes to show us (me) that Hollywood is filled with nothing but actors and actresses. Well, wait, you know what I'm saying -- actors and actresses who perform in real life, too. And they're good! Maybe even better than they are on screen? I mean, geez, what's next? Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson? Oh, hell no.
Perhaps I'm too invested. Perhaps I should just say, "whatevs" and move on. And I will. Eventually. But, guys, this was Kelly Taylor and Carlisle Cullen. This is sad stuff!
