Yes, and she just had a baby during the summer

Pathetic losers

I remember the day "for better or worse" and "until death do us part" deal

Guess everyone thinks it's crap.

Anyone who’s ANYONE is getting divorced right NOW, It’s the IN thing to do. What - I Got served by like 3 broads myself today?? - - sweet. It’s a good thing cause there’s going to be a wave of amazing romances & cool marriages in the near future! My question is who are these d-bags getting married this month? Marriages wont come into style for at least another 9 months -lame.

I am shocked. Only 2 years of marriage and have been separated "for some time"? That's too bad.
For those worried, Dexter has already been renewed for the 6th season.

Good! I'm sure Michael can do so much better than her.

...and I hope they kill Debra off next season. BTW- You fans do realize that they aren't even real brother and sister in the context of the show - he was adopted. You can bang your adoptive siblings.

I love that the title of this article is "Michael C. Hall's Wife to File for Divorce".

They didn't even use Jennifer's name. What a nice subtle jab, TMZ!

I've been a fan of Michael C Hall since the Six Feet Under days. Plenty of people play gay characters on television, let's not forget Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger, and ironically nobody calls them out for being "gay". I think a man has to be REEALLY secure with his masculinity to play a gay man on film, and while it does suck that he just got over cancer, nobody knows if there were problems in their marriage PRIOR to his diagnosis, and she stuck it out to be a good person until the "coast was clear", for lack of better verbiage. It's very, very, VERY difficult to work with someone you are in a relationship with, -especially- when you have to watch them make out with other people all day as part of their JOB. Did anyone else notice that Dexter/Deb moments were quite rare this season? I believe they are being quite professional about the whole thing, and Dexter will be back next season!

Look - if some of you idiots want to say stupid things about how she looks, maybe you need to grow up. Remember, he fell in love with her and dumped his 1st wife of only 2 years. I have heard he is a cheat and probably doesn't make good husband material. At least she stuck with him thru his cancer battle. Who knows why they broke up but it is NOT because of her face.
Some of you people act like you're so beautiful and perfect.

Sorry to hear that it didn't work but really living and working together just gets awkward no space to breath or grow. I absolutely love the show Dexter and I just can't imagine this whole incident not interfering with the growth of the show and that makes me mad and nervous,look at what happened to the Underworld movie series because the actress and the director decided to play house the series hasn't been the same.
