Actress Melissa Joan Hart dumped Jerry O'connell for the rocker who was to become her husband.

The former Sabrina the Teenage Witch star recalls meeting Mark Wilkerson while she was casually dating fellow child actor O'Connell, and when her Lothario lover started flirting with other girls at a Kentucky Derby party, she decided the rocker was the man for her.

She tells Access Hollywood Live, "Jerry and I had gone to high school and college together and he ignored me, and then we were at the Derby and he's giving me all this attention and I was just newly single and I had planned I wasn't gonna meet anyone at the Derby and we started hanging out... and then I met my husband Mark.

"The next morning at the Derby races with a massive hangover, Jerry is hitting on someone else and I was like, 'Oh, I see how this is gonna be'. And then Jerry said to me, 'When we get back to L.A., are we gonna hang out?' and I said, 'I don't think so, I think I've met the man I'm gonna marry'. I had just fallen for Mark so hard, so quickly.

"I called Mark and now 10-and-a-half years later..."
