"Twilight" Star Peter Facinelli Among Celebrities at Grand Opening of Beaches Turks & Caicos Italian Village

Temporarily eschewing the pale complexion of Dr. Carlisle Cullen,Twilight cast member Peter Facinelli enjoyed a little fun in the sun as one of the stars who added Hollywood sparkle to the official grand opening of Beaches Turks & Caicos Italian Village and the expansion of Pirate’s Island Waterpark at Beaches Turks & Caicos Villages & Spas.

The four-day getaway for Facinelli and family (90210 star Jennie Garth and their children) featured a fun-filled itinerary beginning with a “Welcome to Beaches” Barefoot Beach Party, where the Tinseltown twosome mingled with fellow famous faces including Maria Menounos, comedienne Cheryl Hines, Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City and former Lipstick Jungle cast member Robert Buckley.

Walking out on to the white sands of Grace Bay Beach, celebrities cast their cares to the wind as they climbed aboard a custom catamaran called The Kitty Katt, which cruised across the Caribbean blue waters on day two of the Turks & Caicos adventure. Back on dry land, the luminaries moved to the groove laid down by DMC of Run DMC fame who, along with Destinee and Paris Monroe– better known as The Clique Girlz– took the stage at the Wete Fete Pirate Pool Party to entertain the glitterati guests.

Their trip to the Turks & Caicos came to a close on May 18, but the memories of experiencing the launch of Beaches Turks & Caicos Italian Village– which ended amid a laser light show at a Masquerade Carnivale Party– will stay with the stars forever.
