@Beard: I just love your comment))

It’s truly sad how all these marriages are separating. :’(

Love to see her sister Emily from Bones on her show! They are both very funny! Zoey is great on her show and glad it made it for a whole
Season. And Zoey is nominated for a Golden Globe…Where does husBand play…Is he living off of her !

who? and who?

@Lily: and I love yours!

It’s truly sad how all these marriages lately are separating. :’(

I agree with you, it’s sad that so many people are divorcing. Seems like we all forgot how sacred love is. I know **** happens to us and it hurts and we all have a past that has hurt us, but love can overcome anything (besides physical abuse because that’s not love). Good luck to Zooey finding her true love!

It’s sad when folks are already rooting for her to be with someone else instead of hoping they can reconcille after taking vows to love each until death do us part.

Also, her show sucks! I don’t get all the buzz surrounding it. It is stupid and totally not funny, unless you think being a moron is funny.

always happens when one person in the marriage becomes more ‘famous’.. (by that i mean main-stream popular)

She won’t date JGL so you fangirls can give it a rest. It’s very obvious he likes her more than she likes him, JUST like in the movie! lol

Her twin Katy Perry just got divorced too omg lol


I know right?! More evidence they’re the same person!


They are both very funny! Zoey is great on her show and glad it made it for a whole season.
