    I just hate it when people divorce with children… :( Especially after 19 years!

  • duh.

    yeah that totally sucks.
    i like him
    are his kids young?

  • al

    I would divorce him too. Don’t get me wrong though, divorce is one of the most painful things one has to go through but he is the pits. No talents, not funny. CRAP.

  • Jina

    His kids are mostly grown up now.

  • RIPheath

    That’s so sad. He always had such great things to say about her.

  • The Shiznack

    thats a shame

    mrs doubtfire is still one of my fav childhood films

    I guess she was probably sick of his manic depression, alcohol abuse (allegedly) and probably wanted to be free. And she’ll probably get a huge settlement to enjoy out the rest of her life.

  • kelly

    He cheated on his first wife, with this current wife that’s now divorcing him, who at the time was his children’s nanny. A relationship that starts out that way is doomed for failure.

    #9, well put it this way…they were married for 19 YEARS. That’s a lifetime in Hollywood. Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, on the other hand…

  • tom c

    Well, that’s what happens when you cheat on your 1st wife with your nanny! (this current wife was actually nanny to his children). Now, he’s got 2 child support settlements to pay off. That nanny is set for the rest of her life!


    #9 kelly fyi his 1st wife cheated on him and walked away leaving a toddler [boy]marsha is babysitting! in time the toddler and daddy fell in love w/ her and he married her. she has 2 children with him both grown up[boy and girl]. 19yrs marriage is like forever when your a celebrity!

  • Mary

    Mary mary oh quite contrary……hope she’s worth it Robin….what is it with men in Hollywood and dirty high end whooosers?

  • why she left

    the first wife left because he came home with herpes – he was sleeping around and not telling people he had this disease – disgusting. He got caught out and sued.

  • lily

    that’s what I am saying. why should we have pity for the nanny homewrecker. she should thank her luck stars it lasted 19 years.

  • mel

    Why do people divorce after so long. 19 years? What new details cropped up that they didn’t know about all those years?

  • sasha

    I can’t even believe he’s actually heterosexual.

  • OK

    I wonder what his son woud thinks of his father dating someone just a few years older than himself? :)

  • sasha

    She definitely didn’t fit the mold of “hot nanny.”

  • justa mia

    I couldn’t stand being married to him for a week. He hasn’t been funny or normal acting for about the last 19 years.

  • i always felt this was coming

    I think they are BOTH gay or bisexual and are BEARDS for each other. He’ll now be like Eddie Murphy and enjoy his true identity, but have wonderful children and grandchildren to surround him in his old age. I’m sure there are no regrets here.

  • he-he

    what’s with the mole? That looks wicked.

  • nicole m

    Omg. I can’t believe this, but then again this is hollywood.

  • ****

    Now he can finally start dating men…good for him. :)

  • Opus

    I am sure it is the Mole. He just noticed it. For 19 years he was looking at her Chest


    her mole is hypnotic!

  • EvilDead

    Seriously who cares. He left his first wife for the babysitter(the same woman you see here) so its not like he is a wonderful guy….He hasnt been funny or entertaining in years.

  • hdog

    I can tell you from first-hand info that Marsha did not wreck Robin’s first marriage. His wife was in a relationship when Robin and Marsha hooked up.

  • JT

    they live in San Francisco. Perfect.

  • acause

  • so sorry
