    Very sad to hear about this. I didn’t have any feelings for them as a couple one way or another, but I’ve been a fan of hers since the very beginning of One Tree Hill and she’s been the sole reason I’ve stuck with the show throughout its tumultuous run. My biggest wish, with her being my favorite television actress, is for her to be happy and successful.

    We love you, Joy!

    Wow. I’m surprised. Of course who knows what went on behind closed doors- and Bethany has always been very low-key and private- but I was still shocked to read about this.

    ohh poor bb!! Joy has been private but the lil we do know about her she is strong and has extreme faith and love in god and family is very important..everything really.. she had to have thought this through and made the right choice.. or she wouldnt have done it.Sad yes, but Im hoping its for the better. Besides dont tell me the creepy, over bearing arms folded, in a big hoodie, standing like a statue when she was on signing tours didnt give you the goosebumps ..#neverabigfan

    Oh man, I thought these two would last. They seemed to have it all together. My sympathies are with Joy, Michael and their daughter. Poor thing. :(

    Their relationship has been in trouble for quite awhile. What a pc statement. They are flawed like everyone. I guess jesus and a child wasn’t enough to keep them together. Hollywood strikes again.

    Joy fans think she is a saint. Hardly…..

    That’s why Joy is anorexic. Looking for a new man and a new job. Maybe she’s doing Paul J. rotfl

    The Galeottis will miss her paycheck. I guess Joy waited until she wasn’t getting a paycheck to file. This way she won’t have to support her ex and his family and their restaurant.

    Dee Says:

    WOW! I am shocked!! SHOCKED! I really never thought that they would divorce. Something huge must have happened or they just drifted apart. Whatever it was I feel the worst for the baby. :(

    Jenna Says:

    I feel for Joy in this situation but I have to say her fans are such hypocrites. They were making fun of Sophia for attending parties after she broke up with Austin and now look at Joy. I don’t see her crying at home either so it’s about time people grow up and stop bashing them.

    This is Too Funny Says:

    LOL at her fans.
    I used to laugh whenever one of her stans would say something like “Joy is the ONLY one in the cast who is in a solid relationship and will never divorce” or “Joy is so great” and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
    So what do you losers have to say about little Miss perfect now for divorcing her husband after all of her preaching about how traumatic and difficult it is on a child when parents divorce??? Didn’t she just give birth like only a year ago??

    So true Says:

    Joy fans bash Sophia for everything even breathing. Now Joy, the religous little miss perfect in their eyes has left her husband, going out in LA! Little wh@#e. How’s it feel you nasty people? Not so good. What goes around comes around. Leaving the father of her child and moving to a different state. Shame, shame on Joy.

    Respect Says:

    I happen to be a fan of both Joy and Sophia and I hate hypocrisy. It’s a shame the stans of both actresses seem to have no idea what this is.

    I saw no problem in Sophia going out after breaking up with Austin, just like I don’t see anything wrong in Joy going to this even when she’s divorcing her husband. Anyone who has different opinions just because the name of the actress changes is a hypocrite. Fact.

    However some other fans also seem to complain over and over again how they don’t understand how Joy fans go comment and spread negativity in Sophia’s news when they don’t have anything good to say and how it was unsensitive that people were being so evil about her break-up and yet Sophia fans are in here doing exactly the same thing. They’re also hypocrites for that. Fact. If you want to be respected, respect and that goes both ways. If you want people to take you seriously, be the higher person and stop nit picking each other. Now if you all start acting like adults and stop these stupid fights, that would be great.

    Both women are really inspiring and I hope, above all, that they’re happy.

    I hope Joy manages to go through such a hard time.

    Amanda Says:

    9, 10, and 15 can you seriously get a life?? Sophia and Joy are friends. Stop being so disrespectful. None of you know them at all. Grow up and have some respect.

    So true Says:

    Well Joy fans deserve it. They have been Sophia hating for years over EVERY thing. Even the divorce with Chad. So shove it. Joy broke up her family and left the state, bad girl, not so perfect after all. Bad girl Joy.

    Amanda Says:

    LOL ya’ll are a bunch of crazy ingrates. Look at your lives. Sophia and Joy are classy and beautiful and talented and that’s what we should appreciate.

    Respect Says:

    ^ Even so, can’t you all be the bigger person here and prove once and for all that you’re better than said Joy fans? Otherwise, you’ll end up looking as pathetic as those Joy fans are. It’s called maturity.

    An please don’t generalize. I’m a Joy fan and I never did those things. Not everyone posting hateful comments about Sophia are Joy fans neither are people who post hateful comments about Joy are Sophia fans. How old are you, people? Seriously.

    Amanda Says:

    Exactly. Yes there are a few crazy and rotten people in this fanbase but why do you let their stinky attitudes affect you? Millions and millions of fans LOVE Joy and Sophia. Join them and be respectful. These women are kind to their fans and they love each other in real live. Let’s celebrate strong and beautiful women and not pit them against each other.

    EuropeGirl Says:

    I just wonder….why did Joy instantly change her name back to Bethany Joy LENZ? I felt like she did everything for her family. Did Michael cheat on her?

    Hehe Says:

    You can’t believe that this JUST HAPPENED. It has been going on for some time. How do you know Joy wasn’t fooling around? Maybe she wanted someone better! Joy is a hollywood girl after all! Now you brats want a truce because Joy messed up. I don’t think so. Now you want to be kind, laughable….

    I guess Joy put Jared on her payroll!!!!
