Angie Harmon’s 9-year marriage to Jason Sehorn is on the rocks, allegedly

wenn2726090

Does anyone watch the new TNT show, Rizzoli & Isles? I started watching it because I was too lazy to flip the channel after The Closer, and because I like the two leads, Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS). The show was pretty horrible the first few episodes, but I have high hopes that they’ll work out the kinks and that it will be a solid female-driven cop drama, worthy of its plum post-Closer timeslot. Sasha and Angie have a lot of girlish chemistry together, and now the show is starting to work with that more, so fingers crossed.

Anyway, since Angie Harmon left Law & Order, she’s done several things: she got married to football player Jason Sehorn, she had three adorable little girls, and she’s been working pretty steadily in various guest roles, lead roles, supporting roles, almost always in television. But she had yet to become the lead in her own major television series, which is kind of a shame – she has that rare quality on camera, where even though she’s really pretty, on camera she always seems tough and badass, never the wilting flower. Now she is the badass lead in Rizzoli & Isles, and things are starting to go awry – in her personal life. It seems that Jason isn’t thrilled that his wife of nine years is now a big television star. Caveman, coming through!

Success has been murder on Angie Harmon’s family life! Her TNT cop drama Rizzoli & Isles has quickly become a huge hit for the former Law & Order actress, but her career demands are wreaking havoc with her nine-year marriage to former football star Jason Sehorn, say sources.

“Angie’s marriage has always been one the strongest in Hollywood,” an insider told the Enquirer. “But the popularity of the show has put so much pressure on the relationship that it’s gone from rock-solid to rocky in a matter of weeks.”

Ever since Angie started working on the series, “Jason’s been forced to play Mr. Mom to their three young daughters,” said the insider.

While Jason loves his children, he never expected to become a full-time house-husband. But for now, Angie says she needs him to assume that role – which means that a lot of Jason’s time is scheduled for playtime, little girl style.

“It’s hilarious when you come in and see them all doing the tea party, and he can barely fit on the little chair,” Angie told a reporter.

But the insider noted: “It may be funny to Angie, but Jason’s not laughing.”

The ex-footballer is waiting anxiously for the college football season to resume so he can return to a TV gig doing commentary.

“Jason is struggling to get used to Angie being consumed by her hit series,” said the insider. “He’s chomping at the bit to get back to work himself.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition]

First of all, I don’t really buy that this is the dynamic – Angie never really stopped working completely, she just took it down a notch when she was having babies and everything. I think Jason knew he was marrying a working actress, and if he’s been fine with it for nine years, what’s the big deal now? Of course, if the Enquirer is right, and he’s pissed, Jason totally needs to get a grip and, to be crude, sack up. Angie gave birth to three beautiful, healthy babies, they’re a great family, and mama wants to go back to work. It’s time for Dad to step up.

    I just saw her on some show promoting her new TV show..She sounded very happy with her husband and their daughters.. She talked about some cute name the call the girls. And that they didn’t want more kids. I don’t know much about her nor him. But she seemed happy to me.

  2. Lulu says:

    What married person hasn’t had issues? Besides Tom and Kat. *rolls eyes*

    Anywho, I LOoove that pinkish dress! She looks amazing.

  3. Donna Wingfield says:

    I’ve loved her since L&O, and I’m also waiting for Rizzoli and Isles to hit its stride. TNT ordered more episodes for another season, so we’ll see how things go. I hope there’s no truth to the marriage trouble rumors.

  4. mslewis says:

    I saw the first episode of that show and thought it was pretty awful. Haven’t watched since and don’t plan to ever watch again. But, good luck to her.

    Why is it that when a woman is working and the man is at home the rumors start about “trouble” and whatever? Jason was a football player who retired. He doesn’t do anything so why is it so ridiculous to think that he loves being at home with his girls while Angie works? I don’t believe these rumors at all. He’s probably happy that Angie has a hit show that keeps her busy.

  5. LolaBella says:

    I like her. She had a show a few years back called Women’s Murder Club that was pretty good. The Writer’s strike messed it up though and it wasn’t renewed for a second season.

    I haven’t seen the new show yet, plan to catch up when they do a weekend marathon.

    I’m not buying this story. She and Jason have always seemed to have a good handle on co-parenting their children and working around one another’s work schedule.

  6. Snarf says:

    Typical conservative dynamic. The second there’s traditional role reversal, feathers get ruffled.

  7. Hautie says:

    I am not buying this one either.

    Any family that has multiple kids and two successful working parents, have bumps in the marriage.

    He probably is not thrilled having to Mr. Mom it. But her series is only doing like 13 episodes a season. So really it is like a part time job. :)

    Jason strikes me as enjoying the fact she does have a very public career in TV. And is not relying on him to finance their entire lifestyle.

    I have heard nothing but good things said about them around Dallas. Where they maintain a home near her parents.

  8. Katie says:

    I don’t really buy this. They are also ultra-conservative so I think they would go to great lengths to avoid divorce. I love that dress she’s wearing in the 2nd pic from the bottom. Her husband is not as good looking as I remembered…age I guess. Also, she was badass in Women’s Murder Club, which had a great ensemble and which I really liked and I thought was better than Rizzoli and Isles. I was sad they canceled it.

  9. a says:

    beautiful dress in the 2nd photo

  10. Crash2GO2 says:

    Kevin Bacon did it for Kyra and gracefully.

  11. meme says:

    9 years is forever in hollyweird.

  12. Green Is Good says:

    Well my stars, GOD FORBID Mr. Sehorn has to be supportive of his wife’s career! And help raise the kids?! Escandalo!

    What a dickweed.

    And I love this show! Loved Angie’s character on Law & Order, too.

  13. Green Is Good says:

    @Katie: Women’s Murder Club! Loved it! Hopefully with the success of Rizzoli & Isles, maybe they’ll do TV movie, A la Columbo.

  14. Karen says:

    I cannot tell you how much I have always hated the term “Mr. Mom”. No!! A stay-at-home father is simply Dad.

    Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest!

  15. Cinderella says:

    It may not be Jason. It may be her.

  16. Bodhi says:

    1) Sasha Alexander is a dumb name. Its essentially Alex Alex. (Sorry, that bugs the hell out of me)

    2) Who in the hecll keeps giving Angie Harmon work?! I’ve hated her since L&O. :shudder: I think shes awful.

    Anyway, I don’t by this either.

  17. danielle says:

    Cinderella, I thought the same thing – this sounds like it might have been planted by someone close to her – the story is very flattering to her but not him.

  18. bellaluna says:

    If Sehorn is “chomping at the bit” to go back to work, and he’s only been way-layed by football being out of season, then he really should be more understanding of how Angie feels.

    After all, she’s pretty much been the one to “dial down” her career and raise her baby girls, for which I admire her greatly!

    @ bodhi – LMAO @ the name thing, but you’re correct; it is bothersome.

  19. cowbell says:

    Should be “champing” at the bit.

    Anyway, I like them.

  20. Rosanna says:

    I love how beautiful and graceful this woman is. I wish she’d have more work because it’s a pleasure to look at her.

  21. lucy2 says:

    I say BS too – she’s worked pretty steadily for a long time now, and was the lead in that Women’s Murder Club show. I bet this is just nonsense being stirred up because her show got some press and attention.
    I think she’s really pretty, and the show is OK – not nearly as good as the Closer, but not terrible.

  22. tia says:

    She is a Sarah Palin loving, wierdo conservative nut job… PERIOD

  23. Ally says:

    @Katie, ultra-conservatives Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh had no problem divorcing multiple times (while yammering on about “traditional marriage”).

    It’s the proverbial distinction between preaching and practicing.

  24. Kevin says:

    She’s damn close to genetically perfect in my book. I always thought he was wayyyyy over rated on the football field. His proposing on the tonight show was the epitome of “Look at me bitch”. Wish she would have turned his ass down. Yeah I’m jealous, so what.

  25. la chica says:

    her new show is horrible. her character is supposed to be 30. nope, bad idea. she’s cute but 30 she is not.

  26. Isa says:

    I hope she kept that pink dress. It will be an awesome prom dress for one of her girls!

  27. The Truth Fairy says:

    This quote is ridiculous:

    “It’s hilarious when you come in and see them all doing the tea party, and he can barely fit on the little chair,” Angie told a reporter.

    But the insider noted: “It may be funny to Angie, but Jason’s not laughing.”

    It’s called being a dad to little girls !!

  28. Mouse says:

    Ultra conservative, outspoken prigs. Could care less about them or their spawn.

  29. Linda says:

    Wow only 28 comments on this? Nobody cares about these two I guess. Really, now are we going to start believing the NATIONAL ENQUIERER???????

  30. alphabits says:

    Love Angie, hate her politics. Wouldn’t be surprised if her marriage were in trouble. She and Sasha Alexander virtually told one interviewer that they are attracted to one another

  31. Badinfluence says:

    I don’t believe they are having marriage troubles. But what the hell is wrong with all you haters out there? If you don’t care about Angie, why bother reading this article in the first place. Or do you guys just seek this to say hateful things.
    Yes Angie Harmon is republican, it’s a choice, and though I do not share her political views, I adore her as a great, beautiful and very talented actress. Love her new show Rizzoli & Isles as well. She’s excellent.
    Anyways, back on topic. I don’t believe rumors until they are confirmed.

  32. Bebelct says:

    Why does Jason live in Charlotte? What does he “do”?

  33. Pretty element of content. I simply stumbled upon your web site and in accession capital to assert that I get actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Any way I will be subscribing in your augment and even I achievement you get entry to constantly rapidly.

  34. kay says:

    Love Angie and love the show. Would love to meet her in person. Jason seems happy any time I see photos of them.
