Former talk show host Wayne Brady is singing the blues today. TMZ has learned that the "Whose Line is it Anyway?" star's wife, Mandie Taketa Brady, has filed for divorce.

Wayne Brady
The divorce documents, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, cite irreconcilable differences for the split. Taketa is also requesting join custody of their daughter, 4-year-old Maile Masako Brady.

Papers indicate that the Bradys actually split a year ago, in April '06, but did not officially file for divorce until today. The two were married in 1999.

A rep for Brady told TMZ "After a prolonged period of separation, Wayne Brady and his wife Mandie are divorcing, citing irreconcilable differences. The split is very amicable and they continue to remain the best of friends and committed parents."

Just in case you didn't notice.. His soon to be ex-wife is not a gold digger. She filed the court docs, hence she's a lawyer. I'm sure she can manage her own and they've been married for 7 years... he probably lived off of her before he even got his break.

Rosie the chauvinist    

Women are biologically programmed to marry a successful man. It's the female instinct to make sure that her babies are provided for, so a potential mate should be either financially successful or show the potential and drive to be so. It's nature, even if it looks like golddigging.

Men are programmed to seek young, healthy women as mates so that they will potentially bear healthy babies. Men like curvy women because that is supposed to indicate good health.

Society has masked these drives as some type of social dance when instead they are just basic, inbred biological needs.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Oh oh, another Black guy is losing his White or Asian or Latina wife. Awwww!! Wayne Brady used to talk all of the time about his wife and daughter when he had his show. He must be devasted!! Devasted at losing this woman. HE must be running out of the money too! He will not be able to afford a White woman, that is for sure.

Seriously ,it is sad that they are divorcing with a young child. I used to watch Wayne Brady's show and I liked his show. He seemed to be so in love with his wife.
Makes you wonder what really happened to cause his divorce.

Trophy wife Slim and Trim!!!!    


Dina never went out with Stedman.. she was photographed getting into a car next to one of Lindsay's Bodyguard (who happens to be black and looks nothing like Stedman!!!)...she said she wanted to be the "White Oprah" because she thinks she could be a TV start.

As far as I know Oprah and Stedman are still together and I don't know or care what Dina is doing!
