Ex Marks The Spot
■ Gareis and businessman Bobby Ghassemieh celebrated eight years of marriage in May, thanks to one of her ex boyfriends. “We actually met through Dax Griffin [ex-shane, B&B; ex-tim, SUNSET BEACH et al],” Gareis reports. “Dax and I had been broken up a few years and we were still friends and hanging out, totally platonic, and then his friend Bobby went out, totally platonic, with one of his exes, and we all would go out together and just have a really good time. And then all of a sudden, I was like, ‘Oh, crap, I like Bobby. What am I going to do?’ Now, mind you, years had passed since Dax and I were together and Dax was coming to me for advice about his girlfriends; we were totally beyond anything. So I basically was like, ‘Dax, can I go out with Bobby? Can I go out with your friend? Is this okay?’ and he gave us his blessing. Isn’t that weird [laughs]? But when Dax comes into town, we’ll all still hang out. It’s chill. He’s not jealous and I’m not jealous, even in the slightest, so it works.”
Small World: Gareis met her hubby through his friend, Dax Griffin (ex-tim, BEACH et al), who is also her ex-boyfriend.
