LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Happily ever after?
Not so much in Hollywood where Friday was more like D-Day, as in divorce.
No one should be (or is) surprised by the divorce of former “7th Heaven” actor Stephen Collins and estranged wife actress Faye Grant of “V” fame.
She secretly recorded him during a 2012 couples therapy session and in that recording he admitted to inappropriate touching and exposing himself to at least three underage girls decades ago. He filed for divorce in May 2012.
The couple had been married since 1985. They had one child.
Meanwhile, actress-singer Mandy Moore and her husband, rocker Ryan Adams, called it quits after nearly a six-year marriage that included collaborations on his last album.
Adams, 40, filed against Moore, 30.
Last March, after a madcap fifth anniversary celebration where the guests dressed up in ’50s garb and silly hats, People magazine reported that she’d never been happier.
“Celebrating love w the greatest friends and family last night. Feeling incredibly grateful today,” Moore, best known for the 2002 movie “A Walk to Remember” and the single “Crush,” wrote on her Instagram page.
Earlier Friday, Patrick Dempsey’s wife of 15 years, Jillian Fink Dempsey, filed for divorce.
RadarOnline said the couple, parents to three kids, didn’t have a prenuptial agreement and Mrs. Dempsey is seeking half the actor’s $40 million fortune.
It’s the second marriage for Dempsey who, when he was 21 in 1987, married Rocky Parker, his then-manager, a woman 27 years his senior. It was a case of life imitating art. One of Dempsey’s major credits (before he was “Grey’s Anatomy’s” Dr. McDreamy) was starring in 1987’s “In the Mood,” loosely based on a true 1944 story of a 15-year-old who was irresistible to older women.
Dempsey and Parker were married for just under seven years. During the marriage, Dempsey was a stepfather to a son a year older than he was.
