Big bang: Mayim Bialik announces divorce

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

How was your Thanksgiving? Good? Good.

Well while you were celebrating Turkey Day with your family, you missed some very important news. “The Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik just announced she’s divorcing her husband Michael Stone.

On her Kveller blog, Bialik discussed her separation from Stone after nine years of marriage,

After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to “Irreconcilable Differences.”

Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.

If there were any theory about the effect of Bialik’s parenting skills, the star quickly denies,

The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.

Bialik also adds,

The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that’s what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.

We will be ok.

And if Mayim Bialik is going to be ok, everything is going to be ok. Right? Right???
