Why Hollywood won’t cast Jennie Garth anymore
The demise of her marriage to Facinelli sent her life spiraling out of control, but Garth didn’t wallow in her sadness for too long. She was able to find love after her 2013 divorce when she went absolutely gaga for actor-restaurateur, Dave Abrams. The couple met when a mutual friend hooked them up on a blind date in December 2014. “I looked him up online, and he shared a name with a real beefcake-y male stripper, and I was like, ‘Oh no!’ But luckily it wasn’t him,” she told People. Whew! Crisis averted.
Despite Abrams being nine years her junior, the couple embarked on a whirlwind romance and tied the knot in July 2015. She wasn’t about to waste any time with a long, drawn out courtship, and Abrams echoed that same sentiment. “I’m sure people are like, ‘You guys are insane,’ but when it hits you like that, you know,” he told the website.
As quickly as they went from strangers to husband and wife, their marriage became strained, according to a November 2017 E! News report. The website claimed the couple had agreed to take some time “to work on their relationship.”
A source close to the couple told Us Weekly: “They are still trying to make it work, but they haven’t been living together. They love each other, but like every marriage, it takes work. Jennie is taking the time to focus on her girls and herself.”
Knowing how her divorce from Facinelli caused her to retreat from the public eye, perhaps she needs some time to process things with Abrams before she heads back out into the industry.
