We've Been There: Jennie Garth Admits Pain In Seeing Ex Move On

Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth

The former '90210' star opens up about life post-divorce.

It's been nine months since Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli decided to end their 11-year marriage, and the former 90210 star is now opening up about the pain of seeing her ex-hubby with someone new.

"I think there will come a time when it won't sting so bad. But I'm not quite there yet," she recently told People. "You know, I am happy that he is happy, though." We've all been there!

Peter started dating his Loosies co-star Jaimie Alexander earlier this year, but they just recently confirmed the relationship. "We've been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year," Jamie said. "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."

Meanwhile, Jennie admits she's dating "one guy right now" and is very much focused on her three daughters. "We are co-parenting and getting the hang of it," she added. And no, she's not sharing who that lucky stud is.

The pain of moving on after a divorce is one that many can relate to. Divorce coach Kimberly Pryor has three key must-avoid steps to make the process a bit simpler.

For Jennie, working out is the healthy distraction she uses to move on! She dropped 30 pounds this year! "A lot of exercising and a lot less eating," she said of the weight loss. "I decided to start taking better care of myself. Forty is the new 30." Love her positive attitude! Go Jennie!
