Lisa Lampanelli is looking at the bright side of divorce.

The Celebrity Apprentice alum and husband Jimmy Cannizzaro "have decided to end their marriage" after three and a half years together, the comedian's publicist told E! News in a statement Thursday. The couple "have always made incredibly good friends, but weren't a match as man and wife."

But Lisa, 52, is by no means cutting Jimmy, 53, out of her life. "We still call each other first when something great or horrible happens in our lives, and we expect that to continue," she said.

Jimmy is also looking forward to a continued friendship with his ex, adding optimistically, "And we're leaving the marriage in much better shape than when we came in, since we each weigh 100 pounds less."

Actually, Lisa lost 106 pounds following her gastric-sleeve surgery in April 2012. In May 2013, she told In Touch Weekly that she'd gone from 248 pounds to a healthy 142.

"I feel like I've reached the weight I'm supposed to be," she said. "I'm officially a skinny bitch!"

At least, though, the self-described "Queen of Mean" is the kind of "skinny bitch" who can end her marriage on friendly terms! We wish the best for her and Jimmy.
