It's been a tumultuous year for Jaime Pressly but 2011 seems to be ending on a good note – at least romantically speaking.

The actress brought her new beau, Hamzi Hijazi, along to celebrate Mohegan Sun's 15th anniversary on Saturday in Connecticut. The pair watched Jennifer Lopez's emotional concert along with newlyweds Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, then attended the afterparty at Ballo inside Mohegan Sun.

Pressly, 34, who filed for divorce from entertainment lawyer Simran Singh in January, said she and Hijazi met at Lorin, his shoe store in downtown Santa Monica, Calif. The former My Name Is Earl star, who next stars in the Fox sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter, described their first encounter as fateful.

Jaime Pressly Worried About Her Image After DUI

Originally posted 03/18/2011 04:25PM

Jaime Pressly has already admitted she isn't "perfect" – but she's still feeling the sting of notoriety following her recent DUI arrest.

"She's concerned about how the arrest will affect her image because she feels this situation is unjustified," Pressly's lawyer, Rich Hutton, told PEOPLE on Friday, following a hearing in the case. "It doesn't represent who she is."

The actress, 33, who has pleaded not guilty, is also dealing with her divorce from Simran Singh, but Hutton says she's maintaining a positive attitude.

"She's a wonderful woman," he says. "She's doing great. She takes this [DUI case] very seriously. She's upset, but overall – aside from this – she's doing very well."

Pressly's next DUI hearing is scheduled for May 3. She is not required to appear in court.
