Gary Collins' wife of 43 years needs a time out in her marriage to the TV host ... TMZ has learned she filed Monday for legal separation.

Mary Ann Mobley -- who won the Miss America title in 1959 -- is "miserable about the whole situation" ... this according to her rep who spoke with TMZ.

Mary Ann is undergoing chemotherapy and radiation as she deals with stage 3 breast cancer.  Mary Ann's rep tells us Gary is depressed about her illness and they both felt they needed a break. 

The rep says no other person is involved in the separation. 

Gary has had his own problems, after being arrested 3 times and convicted twice for DUI.

The date of separation is listed as October 1, 2010 -- nearly a year ago.

She's baaaack    

Married 45 years and they're both older than dirt and this sounds like spin, spin, spin. I think Gary is boning some young drunk broad and the wife's plastic surgeon told her to call it a day.

She is still beautiful but when you think of the alcoholism and stress related to it the whole fantasy of this great couple just ****ters. Treatment is the only thing to make the make believe real. So tragic.

She's an angel and a beauty and she needs MUCH LESS stress in her life. How creepy and selfish is this guy to not make things easier for her in this difficult time? Disgusting drunk and totally useless as a human being.

The least he can do is keep himself together for her. It isn't about HIS depression. Unless he is in fact chasing some young bimbo and about to pull a John Edwards on her.

Dear Homeless methed out Torture porn voyeers
The Praxis Hotel,a division of ACORN is a homeless shelter in New York City which performs horrific biotech experiments on it's residents. I know because I live here. I have a bachelors of Science in Exercise Physiology and have been meticulously recording my findings for over a year on @twitter. I am well connected in the US and abroad, US military and various global scientific enterprises are monitoring events with the most advanced equipment known to man, but hindered a Marxist religious multinational corporate interests. By chance, a lead from Phi Beta Kappa,Cambridge University yielded an information bonanza, including an encrypted abstract courtesy of the American Heart Association intervening on my behalf that specifies $240,000,000 budgeted by Time Warner to finance these ongoing biotech atrocities. In this particular permutation, I have assumed the role of Scruffy,the lovable mongrel dog. Click on the link. Verify of refute. Become part of the story. Happy decrypting.http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/50/5/956.short
