Actress Mayim Bialik is officially single again. The Big Bang Theory actress filed for divorce back in November 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. She stated at the time that it is not a decision she and her former husband, Michael, took lightly after more than nine years of marriage. The couple were married in August 2003 and have two young sons, Miles and Frederick.
According to a TMZ report, Bialik’s divorce is now officially complete. The couple have reportedly split their real estate holdings, with Mayim taking the 1,400-square-foot Studio City residence and Michael taking the 1,300-square-foot Sherman Oaks home.
Bialik gained fame as a child actress in the early 90s, playing the role of Blossom Russo in the hit network TV show Blossom. She has recently revived her network TV career, playing the character of Amy Fowler on the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory.
Bialik commented on her divorce last year in her blog at Kveller, a Jewish parenting website. From the blog:
Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.
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.
