Mayim Bialik divorcing
On Thanksgiving, a day that Americans celebrate with family, and friends Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik took to her Kveller blog to say she's divorcing her husband, Michael Stone, after nine years of marriage.
“After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to 'Irreconcilable Differences,' " Bialik wrote last week. "Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.”
The couple have sons aged 7 and 4. Bialik, who has chronicled her parenting style online for years, denied it had any relation to the breakup. “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 former "Blossom" star wrote.
Bialik went on to say, “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.”
