Apparently, some celebs celebrate the day before Thanksgiving by announcing a split.

The same day that Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou revealed that they've called it quits, Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik announced that she and husband of nine years, Michael Stone, have decided to divorce.

"After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to 'Irreconcilable Differences,'" the former Blossom star wrote on her website. "Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly."

"The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose," she continued.

"The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that's what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain. We will be ok."

The couple have two children together, Miles, 7, and Frederick, 4. Aside from her acting, Bialik is well known for her parenting book, Beyond the Sling, where she reveals that she still breastfeeds her 4-year-old son, and that the entire family of four share a bed on the floor.
