    some of the recent posts on this site are so random.. who cares abt this fake couple.

  • Skys

    Maybe age has something to do with why chase and step didn’t work out, she in her late 20′s.

  • Lolita

    Where is the morality? You’re NOT divorced yet! Geesh… these actors are insecure! How are you in a marriage for 10 years and have already moved on? Take some time for yourself. Gee whiz.

  • Asha

    I just don’t understand how people can breakup with their long term partners and jump so quickly into another relationship. Ever heard of a mourning period?

  • kami



    i agree. these hollywood ppl jump from one relationship to another. no respect for their ex. like a sexual merry go round.

    What you are assuming to be true happens all the time whether you are a movie star or a regular everyday person. The reality of it is that we don’t know when each couple stopped being or behaving like a couple. I’ve personally met several couples who continue to live together, even after getting divorced, raising their family together, living in separate rooms and hardly anyone realized. Often it wasn’t until one or both persons actually met other people efforts were made to change their situations. And yes, while I would personally like to see more commitment from all married persons, I think it unfair to ask movie stars to live up to some ideal simply not present across the board….

  • commonsense

    It’s doesn’t matter when they fell out of love or how badly the marriage was going. For Godsake why can’t they leave their marriage with integrity and respect. If they (celebrities or anyone) feel like the marriage isn’t going to work out, sit your partner down and tell them so, don’t start a physical/emotional affair. Leave the relationship with a clear conscientious.

    I know this sounds preachy but $hit like this gets to me. Cheating is so unnecessary!

  • PR

    More PR for the show. these people work together, why would they date?

  • Marieme

    Two marriages? Two kids? Cheating and then breaking up another marriage? Yeah. He’s a keeper.

    Makes you look pretty bad too, Debra. Pretty damn, bad.

  • pinkydoo

    Yeah..this all seems so wierd. All of a sudden you hear about Deborah being apart from her husband and now this. So much PR in all of this. Can’t these people understand that we can see through the smoke?

  • AubryIsHot

    This is so wrong but who knows! And I disagree with previous posters who said Stephanie is prettier. No way, she may be younger but she is downright ugly. Debra is pretty, I just hope she didn’t ruin that marriage regardless of how unattractive his wife is.

  • titi

    @commonsense: I’m not defending cheaters in any way but how do you know either of them cheated? How do you know their marriages were working out before the split? How do you know there was no abuse in their marriages? Spit out references to the facts you claim you know OR shut up and wait to find out the facts.

  • Gwill

    No one ever knows what goes on behind close doors with celebs (and the shouldn’t) but, in my opinion, I doubt anyone cheated here. I don’t know about Will Chase but Debra Messing and soon-to-be Ex still live together, would you still live with the person that cheated you? Of course not.

  • Gwill

    The public never knows what happens behind close doors with celebs (and they shouldn’t) but, in my opinion, I doubt anyone cheated. I don’t know about Will Chase but Debra Messing and her soon-to-be Ex are still living together. Would you still live with the person that cheated on you? Of course not.

  • Kathryn
