"We go out and live in the real world, and he wasn't taking me on any fantasy dates," she joked. "I just started to see that we weren't compatible. We just had a lot of things that didn't line up."
After Gardinier, Guiney wed "All My Children" star Rebecca Budig in July 2004. The pair delighted many fans, but after five years have filed for divorce.
"At this point we're thankful to have our friendship, but we're just going our separate ways," Guiney said, adding that he can't imagine dating for a while.
As for his bachelor pick, Gardinier said fans are constantly bringing up Guiney, making it harder for her to move on.
"It's harder to move on because that person keeps getting brought up, and every little thing they do gets brought up," she said. "I can't tell you how many people are like, 'Did you know? Bob is getting a divorce!' ... Whatever they're going through, I hope they work it out."
But now, Gardinier is ready to move on: "I've no rings," she said, "I'm not married, but, I'm looking forward to it!"
