Garcelle and Michael have 2-year-old twins together -- she is seeking joint legal and physical custody.

As for spousal support -- Garcelle has requested that the judge not award anything to Michael.

Monika, I read online that he cheated and when she found out she sent an e-mail to all his co-workers. LOL @ her request re: not giving him spousal support.

I can only imagine what the porkers must look like who have the nerve to call Garcelle ugly. One person even referred to her as "colored", so that adds at least 40 years to your age, LMAO. Go scarf down another Big Mac with fries. I'm sure if you stepped from behind the safe anonymity of your keyboard and put yourself up against her, everybody would pick her over you seven days out of the week. Jealousy is a hell of a thing and will get you nowhere.

She's being called hot, because the press is PC. If she's hot then Tarzan's pet ape Cheeta is hot. Only a white trash loser would even think about being with that thing.

What's so sad about most of these comments are they're soo racist. This is a woman who was cheated on and is leaving her unfaithful husband. Just like Sandra is leaving Jesse, Elin is leaving Tiger, Christy Brinkley left her husband, etc..

At no time, did any of you racist mention their looks or compare them to animals. Beauty standards are soo racists and Euro-centric. Anything else is considered substandard, inferior and ugly. All that said, this isn't the best picture of Garcelle but TMZ never puts up flattering pictures of black women, so I'm not surprised. She truly is stunning. Her husband is a complete fool and loser. He lost one heck of a lady. Why do men throw away everything over a piece of a.s.s.s.s

I'm glad we have different tastes. Less competition :)

Google her images. Yum. I think she overdoes it on her brows, but aside from that, she's gorgeous.

Call me :)

Garcelle is of West Indian descent; she was born and grew up in Haiti. Her father was a lawyer, and she was not poor by her country's standards. She came to NY at age 17 to pursue a modeling career. She had been a successful model and then broke into acting ( "NYPD Blue," "The Jamie Foxx Show").

I salute her for believing in her natural beauty and not distorting her features (hello, La Toya Jackson). No, that is not horse hair on her head--she's got it like that. Her beauty is natural, real. If these posters knew anything about the history of Haiti and the Caribbean, they'd know that there are so many varieties and blends among the people. Nor is it so unusual that she married a French guy. After all, she speaks that tongue. Too bad she caught him cheating, and what a heartbreaker to discover that it had been going on for 5 years.

Garcelle has another son, born in '91. She knows how to live on her own, and she and the twins will be just fine. Madam, vous etes tres jolie et tres chere. Bon chance.

In regards to some of these comments, yes, jealousy is a hell of a thing. Whenever people are jealous of someone like Garcelle, they always pull out the race card, but this only serves to expose their ignorance and lack of refinement. It's like, it doesn't matter how gorgeous the woman is, as long as she is black, then that automatically makes her ugly, an ape. Shocking to think that you were innocent babies once, with no prejudice, but somehow along the way, your family and friends really messed you up bad. I'd like to see some of you in front of a camera - I bet you all would be shaking in your boots. As for her husband, that's what happens when people with different moral standards get together. A lot of people don't deserve what they have, and he's one of those people. I can understand why some people don't want to get married. Anyway, life goes on, she'll be fine, which is more than I can say for some of you.

Some of you should thank the invention of the internet and websites like this so you can hide and make your racist ugly comments.

Page 2 so far filled with nothing but A1 classy comments. Sponsored by alcohol & prescription drugs, I assume. Or worse.

Good thing there's that soothing image of Garcelle.

You are most likey some overweight, pasty, stringy haired,truck driver looking, redneck with 30 filthy tattoos all over your body. Your life much really suck. Jealousy is a terrible thing. Garcelle is beautiful,classy,successful and rich. She has three beautiful children who she adores, great family, many friends, very nice homes. Men lust after her, women want to be her. Now please get back to your 6 dollars an hour job and hang your head in shame!
