Such a shame!

Little House on the Prairie actress Melissa Gilbert has separated from her husband of 16 years, Bruce Boxleitner.

She says in a statement:

"We have loved each other for a very long time and we share four incredible sons together. On behalf of our family we ask to be allowed our privacy during this very difficult time."

Must be so hard, especially after such a long relationship.

You're both in our thoughts. Hang in there, guys.

    Hey Melissa I'm Single :)



  2. 2

    It's hard to believe that she used to be a cute little girl on Little House on the Prairie. Plastic surgery has messed up her face. I thought she was Melissa Rivers for just a second.



  3. 3

    I never would have recognized her. Another hollywood woman with a frozen face and a huge mouth. Why???



  4. 4

    Holy cow. She's not aging very well. He, on the other hand, is aging nicely. He probably wants to put his peen in a prettier and younger-looking vagina and mouth and who can blame him. Life is short and getting shorter the older you get.

    If you want privacy, make a statement!



  6. 6

    meant to say WHY make a statement. Drinking and typing….



  7. 7

    Well, that explains why she guest starred on Babylon 5 (I've been watching it recently and was like "… Melissa Gilbert?!"



  8. 8

    WHO IS YOUR……'USER'? Go TRON Go.



  9. 9

    God, she looks like an idiot. She's rockin' that trashy everybody-else slut actress look.

    He's still very good looking. I remember fondly his TV program with Kate Jackson back in the '80's. My daughter used to have a black and white picture of him from a mag for an advertisement for a men's colonge ( I think Aramis). I'm very sorry for both of them and their children. Best to them both.

    Re: ShoeWhore – Imm…Shoewhore, why would you not think that she has been getting younger peen in over-inflated lips and vajayjay? Just saying…he might not be the problem…not that i have any scoop mind you.

    what is wrong with her left leg?

    lots of face surgery.

    I remember they had a rocky pre-marriage relationship, so 16 years is pretty good. But yeah, it's painful, always

    The crazy has-been doesn't even remember that they only have one son together. Bruce has 2 from a previous marriage and she has one son from a previous marriage. That son opted to live with his father rather than her.

    who give a fuck about this 2 , i didnt know they were still alive

    THEY SHARE 4 CHILDREN — "Gilbert, who rose to fame as Laura Ingalls on 'Little House on the Prairie,' was married to actor Bo Brinkman for four years before her relationship with Boxleitner. The couple had one son, Dakota Paul Brinkman, before divorcing in 1992. Gilbert is also stepmother to Boxleitner's two sons, Sam and Lee, from his marriage to actress Kathryn Holcomb." AND they have one with each other — "The couple welcomed their only child together, Michael Garrett Boxleitner, named in honor of Gilbert's 'Little House' co-star Michael Landon"

    Could never stand Melissa Gilbert even when she was young and popular.
    I like the previous poster's comment that she looks like Melissa Rivers now. So true. She never was a beauty but now she is just a mess. Ease up on the botox and face work girl!

    Why did Gilbert ever stop acting?

    You people are horrible!! A long term marriage has ended and there ARE four children involved….some step parents love their kids. I have two so know all about it!

    I'm really sorry to hear that the marriage has ended and wish them all the best in moving forward.

    She'll always have "Little House on the Prairie" and he will always have "The Scarecrow and Mrs. King." Ahhh, life in Hollywood…



  20. 20

    She's a crazy bitch and I am very glad for him. Good riddance.



  21. 21

    OH MY GOD, WHAT IS WRONG WITH MELISSA FACE?



  22. 22

    Why does she look like Melissa Rivers?



  23. 23

    Wouldn't it be funny if it came out that she was a lesbian, and Miss Beetle was her lover, but they broke up because Melissa Etheridge "came thru the window", and stole her. Thus, resulting in an obsessive compulsive behaviour that lead her pull her leg hair out by the roots and shoot rats with a bb gun and swilling mouthwash and Tang?
