Former American Pie star Elizabeth has been dating a math teacher from Las Palmas Middle School in Covina, CA, according to the February 25 issue of Star, and she even told In Touch at the end of April that her boyfriend was fine with Derek being her partner because “He knows I’ve never dated a blond guy, plus Derek is 22.” People thought that Derek and Shannon were yet another couple that fell in love after all that romantic exercise together.
