UPDATE 5:30 P.M. EST: Cat released the following statement:
"It is with great sadness, that after 17 years, a tremendous amount work, careful consideration and heavy hearts, My wife and I have mutually decided to no longer remain married. In Love, there is a season, a reason and a lifetime. Although this is not what we ever imagined, we will always have four incredible reasons to celebrate our years together, our sons. We are forever parents to our boys and are jointly committed to raising them in a peaceful, nurturing and healthy environment."
On Monday, it was revealed that Iron Chef star Cat Cora and her wife Jennifer are divorcing after two years of marriage.
Unfortunately, it seems this split is not an amicable one as both women filed for divorce on the same day — with each parent requesting custody of their four children. Yikes!

It's said Miz Cora is seeking joint time with their kids while her estranged wife wants full physical custody and spousal support. Ouch!
We don't know if this battle over the TV host's brood will swing in her favor as she's had her own fair share of problems in the past — including a DUI bust back in 2012.
In fact, Jennifer carried three of the four little ones she has with the professional chef, whereas Cat carried one of her children.
Still, the Mississippi native seems to have her act together as she operates four restaurants and is currently a guest judge on Cutthroat Kitchen. Here's hoping these two can find a peaceful resolve to their breakup at least for the kids' sake.
