Janeane Garofalo files for divorce after 20 years of marriage.

Actress/comedian Janeane Garofalo has filed for divorce from Rob Cohen, a producer on the Big Bang Theory.

After 20 years of marriage, she is ready to embrace the single life.

20 years is a long time, in Hollywood standards. Too bad they couldn't work it out.

I think this is just an official break-up. I remember reading they got married on a whim in Vegas, but broke up shortly after, and never bothered to file for divorce. She's been with someone else for about ten years now.

I know she has a lot of haters, and her politics can be a bit of a turn-off, but her stand-up is great, and her most recent special is one of the best I've seen in a while.

I had no idea she was even married.

Me neither. Her politics are fine. If she's "our Ann Coulter" I'll take Janeane any day.

Hope she gets a great settlement from the divorce.

Late-in-life Lesbian?

She didn't know she was married.

Maybe that is why she is getting divorced, Late-in-life Lesbian

She is entitled to half of everything he owns.

I would go after it.

Something ain't right about this story. Wouldn't it have come up for tax reasons? Or some other reason?

How could they BOTH completely forget the whole thing? They were that drunk? No certificate of marriage that they found the next day that made them realize they got married?

Sounds like a PR stunt.

I had no idea she was even dating someone, much less married.

Strange this is news today, not only because of the 20 year wait to file, but because I hadn't thought of her in ages until I saw her on a rerun of King of Queens last night.

I can take her in small doses. Like a 30 minute sitcom.

They didn't literally forget about the marriage, but they did split up quickly and have been leading separate lives for most of their "marriage." Janeane brought it up on her Air America radio show, so no it's not like she'd completely forgotten about it. I have no idea why there was such a delay in divorcing, general flakiness on both their parts I guess.

r1, for the longest time she kept me way in the closet!!

I've always liked her, her politics don't bother me. I agree with many of her views.

In all these years, I had no idea she was married.

Long ago, she mentioned her marriage in her standup act. She said how she'd married a friend at a Vegas drive-thru chapel, and had no idea whether it was legally valid.

I'm amazed they've let it slide this long. It's the ultimate show of indifference.

So why isn't she asking for spousal support. Under California law she is entitled to half of everything he owns.

She should take him to the cleaners.

Yeah, what about taxes? There is no way they are filing together.

by Anonymousreply 2011/14/2012

If they were filing single, wouldn't they have been paying more than if married and filing jointly? Sounds like a non-issue. If necessary, all they'd have to do is refile for that one year with changed status.

"So why isn't she asking for spousal support. Under California law she is entitled to half of everything he owns."

If they really never lived as husband and wife, his lawyers would have no trouble convincing a judge that the marriage was not legally valid, and community property laws don't apply.
