'7th Heaven' Star's Wife

I Want My Half

10/27/2013 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"7th Heaven" star Stephen Collins (who played the dad on the show) is raking in HUGE money with new acting gigs these days ... so says his estranged wife ... and now she wants a piece.

66-year-old Collins filed for divorce from 56-year-old Faye Grant last year after 27 years of marriage and according to new legal docs, Faye's NOT happy.

Faye claims she's been left with no means of income, while Stephen hauls in cash from his various gigs -- including $400,000 minimum for "Revolution," $64,937 for "Devious Maids," $7,682 for "Scandal," and $5,500 for "The Fosters" ... and that's just for 2013.

Faye -- an actor herself -- says she gave up her prime acting years to raise their daughter, and now she can't land a job.

She says she got used to an upper class standard of living while married to Collins -- who earned $1 million to $3 million per year while they were together.

She's asking the court for an unspecified amount of spousal support. She also wants half of a $6 million bank account which includes "7th Heaven" money, stat ... and half the value of 2 lavish properties in Brentwood, CA.

Turns out Heaven CAN'T wait.

Unless they signed a pre-nup, she gets half of everything. This is California. For God's sake woman, hire an attorney.

"She wants a piece" - what's up with the misogynist coverage TMZ? All you all Republicans? You know how much Republicans hate women.

Faye Grant is a psychopath.

I know someone who did business with her in the early 2000's who was royally screwed over by Faye Grant's antics.

Total DIVA when she really has no right to be. No real talent and a horrible personality

Is this woman nuts? Get a job! Any job! Just because you are used to a certain lifestyle doesn't mean it will last forever. How many people have lost their homes and jobs and had to adjust. She has no right to ask for any money he's made after they divorced. She should feel blessed to be alive, without any disabilities and she should find her own way of making a living.

If they are legally separated, she isn't entitled to half of what he is earning now. She will end up with support, but it won't be that much.

She is nuts. CA is a community property state. After 27 years of marriage, everything they have is 50/50. Since he has been making the big bucks for years, she gets half of it all.

Let me remind everyone who is calling Mr. Collins a "POS" and similar - we don't KNOW the terms of the divorce settlement. For all we know she's getting $1M per year for perpetuity, but like so many Hollywood wives is contesting it because she "can't live on" that amount of money. They're in California- I seriously doubt she was left with "nothing" in a divorce settlement. Less than she wanted - yes - but not "nothing".

I don't know why this is making headlines. The divorce will grind through the court system and she'll likely get half as well as alimony because she was a wife and mother for so many years. Sounds like she is trying to publicly embarrass him.

Wow, they really go for the money. It is always about the money with women in divorce.
