michael shimbo jennie garth james franco roast Meet Michael Shimbo, Jennie Garth's new boyfriendJennie Garth famously split from husband Peter Facinelli back in the spring of 2012, with the divorce just being finalized this past June.

Now it appears she has moved on to a new beau. Garth stepped out with Michael Shimbo at the end of August for the Comedy Central roast of James Franco (pictured above). A source close to Garth tells People that the two have been steadily dating recently.

The source also says that Shimbo is a San Francisco-based media executive who serves as the CEO of PlanesTrains+Automobiles, a video travel channel. Garth is apparently serious enough about Shimbo to introduce him to her “90210” co-star Shannen Doherty.

Don’t you love it that Garth and Doherty are friends in real life?
