Well, after that HORRIBLE season of Dexter, it kinda makes sense.

usually these actor types (either sex) get involved with the series lead to further thier career. Once they figure out that they can't get every scene rewrittened the way they want, it all self-combusts.

C'mon people, lay off them. Nobody knows what goes on in a marriage unless you are one of the spouses. I've never heard a thing about either of them as people. Which to me suggests they are not publicity whores.

So why not give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they are both good people just married to the wrong person. They certainly do not deserve to be ragged on for their looks or suspected sexual orientation.

That said, the plot of Dexter's finale last night was very disappointing. While of course one must suspend disbelief, I saw many plot holes.

Doesn't surprise me, I could never see them together...in interviews/videos (like at comicon) he was always relaxed and friendly, and she was a total b*tch (maybe cuz she's so freaking hungry?). I love Deb, but I really don't like Jennifer Carpenter. Physically, she just doesn't look like she fits him - neither did his first wife. I know that doesn't determine a marriage, but have you ever seen two people and kind of thought they did or didn't fit together?

Just saw the ending of Dexter and loved it. Love his show and him. Very surprised to hear of this. I can't believe that she wants out of the marriage and especially since he just beat cancer. Hang in there Michael. You can always dump her from the show and I hope you do.

I'm actually shocked. I've always wondered what Mr. Hall's Blind Vice was. He's really an amazing actor, I think he's one of the greats of today.

You guys are so funny. Everybody in Hollywood is gay for some reason. I have read 3 or 4 breakup stories in the past few days on here and it is the same responses. We know nothing about these people and we have no idea why their relationships don't work out. That being said, marriage is clearly not a good option for many of these people.
