Mayim Bialik announced on her blog today that her husband Michael Stone, who converted to Judaism for her, and her are getting a divorce after 9 years of marriage. The Big Bang Theory actress released the below statement before the press had their take on it:
After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to “Irreconcilable Differences.”
Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.
The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.
The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that’s what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.
We will be ok.
The couple have two sons together Miles Roosevelt, 7, and Frederick Heschel, 4.

Sinead O’Connor announced on her website today that she ended her marriage on Christmas Eve, just 16 short days after she walked down a Las Vegas aisle. She wrote a long note saying that people around her husband were not happy with him marrying her and it was too much for him so she “set him free”. She wrote, “From the moment myself and my husband got together not long ago, there was intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me. These were people who had never met me but had formed opinions of me based on what they read about ‘Sinead ‘O’Connor’ in the media etc. Entitled as they are to their opinions about me many perhaps well deserved, there was no righteousness on anyone’s part to put my husband through what he was put through as a result of his desire to be with me and to marry me and as a result of his actually marrying me.”
She declared throughout the letter over and over again that she loves him, but she couldn’t let him to continue to go through what he was going through. She wrote towards the end of her statement, “Please pray for my lovely husband to be ok and do not worry about me as I have had plenty of practice in these matters. I am in a good place in life. And happy. I believe in and am committed wholeheartedly to happiness. Nothing knocks that. My only concern is that my husband be happy.”
She then concluded her long message with, “so now u can all go ahead and have a great laugh, media wise, and be horrid if u desire to. But that’s my record set straight.”
Since she was so honest about what went wrong and why she decided to end her marriage, I will not give her too much grief about it. So instead I will say “Take that Kim Kardashian.” That’s how you end a marriage so shortly after you began it.
A lot dorky boys are happy today because Zooey Deschanel’s rep told Us Weekly that her two year marriage to Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is over. The rep gave this statement to the magazine “It was mutual and amicable. There was no third party involved.”
So I guess you can say the New Girls star is looking for a New Guy.
After 3 years of dating the Friday Night Lights have gone dim on Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter’s relationship. A source told Just Jared, “The split was amicable,” and they added “But they remain friends. They still really care for each other.”
I wonder if her filming Charlie’s Angels and being away from him while he is playing for The Yankees had something to do with their split. Whatever the reason, I am sure they will be linked with new people as early as next week. They are both very desired and there are plenty of people who want to run the bases with them.
Chloe Lattanzi was weeks away from getting married, but she called off the wedding because her fiance’ James Driskill reportedly has a wife. The couple that started dating about a year and a half ago and got engaged around November, but Olivia Newton John’s daughter just found out he is married when a mutual friend dropped the bombshell. According to New Idea Driskill has been married to a woman named Nina since 2005.
I can’t believe that he got away with still having a wife for all of this time, and how did his wife Nina not know because their engagement got media attention.
I feel bad for Chloe because that totally sucks to be living a real life movie that you would see on Lifetime Movie Network.
