'L Word' Star

Ending Boy-Girl Marriage

9/4/2011 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The chick who plays super hot bisexual Tina Kennard on "The L Word" is calling off her real life marriage ... to a man -- according to divorce papers obtained by TMZ.

Laurel Holloman filed the papers earlier this month, asking an L.A. County Superior Court judge to end her 9-year marriage to architect Paul Machery.

The couple has two young daughters together -- but Laurel has requested to share joint physical and legal custody of the children with Paul.

Laurel, who blames the split on irreconcilable differences, has also asked the judge to block Paul from obtaining spousal support.

According to the docs, the two have been separated since last year.

Not sure I like the tone used in this article... Presenting Laurel Holloman's divorce - an unfortunate event that is part of her private life after all - in a way that reflects little to no professional journalism shows lack of respect. Plus whoever wrote it didn't even make the effort to spell Paul's name correctly: Macherey. Finally, referring to an actor like Ms. Holloman as "the chick" is disgusting. She may not be a huge name, but she is an accomplished actor with great roles under her belt.

Good for him! Bitch, the only L-word she needs to worry about is "Lonely" when this stuff plays out in about 10-15yrs.

"Boy-girl marriage"? Whoever wrote this crap watches way too much porn. And could you invest in about 8.5 seconds on Wikipedia per article to get the spelling of the names right?

"Boy-girl marriage"? Honestly! I don't think the details of peoples' divorces should be made public knowledge. Also, in my opinion, it seems as though this article and its accompanying picture intentionally vilify Laurel.

Did she leave him for a woman? One of her L-Word co-stars? Now, THAT would have been a great headline! Esp if it was Jennifer Beals!

Hah, I'm actually re-watching all 5 seasons of The L Word..While I love her character Tina, and Bette, they're not my favorite by any means. And, ***** happens. People divorce all the time.
