How incredibly disappointed were you when you heard that Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth decided to split? Ugh. I was so bummed, because they always seemed like they were one of those atypical Hollywood couples who didn't let fame and fortune get in the way of having a normal life.
And while we're not sure exactly what led up to their demise, there are rumors going around that Peter was cheating. Of course, that may be nothing more than a bunch of speculation. Because honestly, only Jennie and Peter truly know what went wrong in their 11-year marriage.
For the sake of their three girls, hopefully they will be able to keep the split as private as possible.
But it's going to be hard to ignore the fact many Twilight fans won't exactly be upset about Carlisle Cullen being single and ready to mingle again. Even if the cheating rumors turn out to be true, Peter will likely become more famous because of the split.
He and Jennie pretty much had the same level of fame before he was cast to play Papa Cullen in the Twilight series of films. Actually, before Twilight rolled around, I always remembered him from when he played big-headed jock, Mike Dexter, in Can't Hardly Wait. (Remember that movie? OMG -- such a great flick.)
The minute he became a vampire, however, Peter's career, and life in general, definitely took a turn towards super stardom. To say that the film's characters are iconic is a huge understatement. And now that fans have it in their heads that Carlisle Cullen is an eligible man, they are only going to drool over him even more. And as sad and sick & twisted as it is, some fans were probably happy to hear that he and Jennie are divorcing, and that he's back on the market. Because now they can entertain their crazy fantasy about having some sort of eternal love story with him.
And the fact that Peter's fame was already on the rise before his split from Jennie only adds more fuel to the fire. Take a look at the video clip below of him gushing about Breaking Dawn at the premiere. Can you imagine how much more buzz will surround him when Part 2 comes out in November?
Were you shocked when you heard about Peter and Jennie splitting?
