    Charisma Carpenter Hammers Home Divorce

    Charisma Carpenter's marriage is no more.

    A judge signed off last week on the former Angel star's divorce from hubby Damian Hardy, officially ending their five-year union.

    The duo tied the knot, with a prenuptial agreement, Oct. 5, 2000. Carpenter filed for the split Aug. 2, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason.

    Per the judgment, the actress and Hardy will share physical and legal custody of their 5-year-old son, Donovan Charles Hardy, and Carpenter is required to pay her ex $6,000 for attorneys' fees and $300 per month in child support.

    The former lovebirds will care for Donovan on alternate holidays and get two weeks apiece of vacation time.

    In December, Carpenter filed court papers detailing her so-called dire financial straits thanks to the writers' strike, which was in full swing at the time, and her fear of a possible Screen Actors Guild strike (which, theoretically, could still happen).

    Things have continued to be a little slow for the actress since her one-off guest appearance last year on the now-defunct Back to You and a three-episode arc on the since-canceled ABC drama Big Shots.

    But we doubt the powers that be will leave the onetime Playboy poser without an outlet for all that sex appeal for long.
