'7th Heaven' Star's Wife

I Want My Half

"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.

I love all the idiots calling her a gold digger. Yeah...that was her plan all along. Coming off her starring role on one of the biggest mini-series of all time as well as a role on The Greatest American Hero a couple years earlier, and being touted as the next big female star, she instead chose to marry an unknown actor who was then currently being seen in his biggest role...as a minor character in the umpteethn remake of Brewster's Millions. She figured THAT was her ticket to riches! Get married, stay married for over a decade until her husband FINALLY landed a role that would make him famous and rich, and then stick it out for another decade and a half And then take his money.

Yup...that was the plan.
