    Garth, 41, finalized her divorce from Twilight star Peter Facinelli, 39, in June after separating in March 2012. They are the proud parents of three daughters: Luca, 16, Lola, 11, and Fiona, 7.

    Prior to dating Shimbo, Garth was most recently linked to Big Gigantic drummer Jeremy Salken.

    During an Oct. 21 appearance on Bethenny, the mom of three revealed what she desires most in a man. "I look for somebody that shares an energy," Garth revealed. "There is just that connection, that energy that they have—it doesn't matter what the person looks like or what they really do. There has to be that first and foremost, that zing. That thing."

    Here's hoping Garth finds "that zing" with the next guy!
