Recently Divorced Jennie Garth Reportedly Dating ‘HGTV’ Star Antonio Ballatore


Just under two months ago we heard that Jennie Garth and her husband of 11 years, Peter Facinelli had split. According to Jennie, she really didn’t want to end her marriage to Peter, and tried very hard to save their relationship, but sadly it just wasn’t meant to be any longer. Despite the rumors, the couple issued a joint statement denying infidelity rumors, and have pretty amicably parted ways. Today, we have a fresh report that Jennie may be dating again. She was spotted by an Us Weekly “source” having a romantic dinner date with HGTV star Antonio Ballatore. Could Jennie be dating again?

Us Weekly is reporting that Jennie was on a dinner date with Antonio at First Food and Bar at the Palazzo in Las Vegas.

According to a witness, Garth and Ballatore (the tattooed winner of Season 4’s HGTV Designer Star) were “flirty and very touchy” over dinner and dessert at the eatery on May 9. Garth and Ballatore were certainly flirty via Twitter in late April. “Saw a show today called ‘The Antonio Treatment. I think I need that,” the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star wrote. On my way! ;) xo,” Ballatore replied coyly.

As you may know, Antonio won season 4 of HGTV’s Design Star and landed his own show on the same network, now in it’s 3rd season called The Antonio Treatment.

It certainly does seem like some harmless Twitter flirting was going on, but aside from that we don’t have any confirmation that the two are in fact dating. It does seem fairly soon for Jennie to be dating after splitting from her husband of eleven years only two months ago, but there are definitely no black and white rules about these sorts of things, and everyone has to do what is right for them. If Jennie and Antonio are indeed hanging out and/or hooking up, I am happy for them. Antonio seems like such a great, down to earth guy, and which gal would turn down someone who is good with their hands? :)
