    Sad when long marriages end. Saw him onstage in The Trip to Bountiful with Cicely Tyson. Blair Underwood is a stunningly beautiful man.

    • Juls says:

      He really is stunning and so is she. This makes me sad. My husband and I started dating almost 20 years ago and we are still really solid, but anything can happen. Everybody grows over the years. Some people grow together and some grow apart. I really hope there is no scandal here. You never know what people are going through privately. I hope my marriage lasts for life. Nobody goes into thinking you’ll divorce after decades together but, life happens I guess. I wish them both, and their children, well.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Me too! They are both stunning and they seemed to have taken various routes to save the marriage so it could be that they grew apart, which happens quite often. Sad to hear this news.

    • psl says:

      Met him years ago, his kids went to school with a child I nannied. He was SO nice. Approachable and warm.

      I have loved him since L.A. Law!

    I just wanna share with you CB’s, if you have not seen Mare of Easttown, please correct that.

    Sign up for the free trail and watch it. Its that good.


    I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say this just might be Kate Winslet’s best work and her name is already etched on the Emmy.

    • Lemons says:

      I have heard this several times over the past couple of weeks, so I may save this for after finals this weekend!

    • Eugh says:

      Mare was AMAZING. What to watch now!?

    • Keats says:

      I agree about Kate’s performance but Julianne Nicholson steals every scene she’s in, holy cats

      • Mandy P says:

        I agree Keats! Julianne is phenomenal in this series. I hope she wins all the awards. Such a talent.

    Liked Blair Underwood in The New Adventures of the Old Christine which was a hugely underrated show and absolutely hilarious

  4. TheOriginalMia says:

    Back in my youth, I attended a celebrity wedding. Coming out of the bathroom, I ran into Blair Underwood. I thought I was looking good enough to catch his attention UNTIL Desiree rounded the corner. To say they were a stunning couple and completely down to earth would be an understatement. I’m sad they are divorcing and wish the both the best.

    • KL says:

      I love it when people share awesome stories like this on CB, thank you.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Love this story. Were you speechless when you saw him and then your voice dropped to your stomache when you saw his beautiful wife?

  5. Willow says:

    That Amazon ‘wellness booth’, WTH! All the money wasted on that to justify some corporate executive’s outrageous salary, when they could have just raised wages, actually allowed people to take breaks, lowered the performance goals for managers, simply made the changes employees are asking for. That has always been the most frustrating part of any job I’ve had, how clueless upper management is and how unwilling they are to listen.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I think it is a very out-of-touch for management to make these. What a colossal FU!! Instead of paying them a decent salary and decent working conditions, they came up with this? Damn Amazon, you guys are clueless!!

    Jaime FOXX was in Destin FL this weekend. Local company posted a picture w him. I love Jaime! Why couldn’t I have run into him? Sob.

  7. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    Maybe I’m nitpicking but the Morning After Pill isn’t an abortion pill. That’s right-wing propaganda. It prevents implantation. That’s why it has to be taken immediately.

    • Joanna says:

      I’m glad you said that cause I was thinking that.

    • Merricat says:

      THANK you.

    • Penguin says:

      Thank you for pointing this out. Calling the Plan B pill an abortion only further shames women who want to be in control of their own reproductive rights and gives backward lawmakers an excuse to exclude it from funding and insurance policies. It’s a contraceptive tool for emergencies.

  8. Well Wisher says:

    The end of a marriage is the end of an idea. This is a sad occasion for the Underwoods. His parents created a very traditional family and he did until it ended. A note of solace there.

    • Dee Kay says:

      “The end of a marriage is the end of an idea.” <– This is poetic, @Well Wisher, thank you for this. I am feeling some grief over the divorce of close friends of mine, and your words have helped me. They, and their friends, are all mourning the end of the idea of "them." Now they're two individuals, not a "together."

      • 2lazy4username says:

        My husband and I split up two years ago after 30 years together. When I introduced my friends to the man I’m now wildly happy to be dating, they admitted later that as much as they knew the end of my marriage was for the best, and they really liked my boyfriend, they just couldn’t “picture” me with anybody else. It hurt my feelings. to be honest. But it also made me realize the end of that “idea” not only affects the married people, but those around them.

  9. Coji says:

    I kind of get the Amazon thing. I remember many years ago, when I worked at a restaurant, how good it felt to go into the walk-in freezer to let out a primal scream. There have been lots of times at my current job in a ridiculously designed open concept office where I wish there was a place where for 5 minutes of quiet to do a quick meditation. All that being said, a privacy booth is no replacement for bathroom breaks, fair pay and decent working conditions, but it could be a nice addition to an otherwise decent working situation.

    • cassandra says:

      There’s nothing quite like taking you work bestie into the walk-in and having an absolute bxxchfest.

      I don’t miss the restaurant industry, but I miss the restaurant industry you know?

  10. JRenee says:

    Wishing the Underwood’s happiness and peace on their new journeys. Sounds like they tried and it just didn’t work…

  11. Normades says:

    I think an almost 30 year marriage is something to celebrate not look at the end as a failure.

  12. Bobbie says:

    And he will have no shortage of women lined up for him if he wants.

  13. Agreatreckoning says:

    Ditto on recommending the series. Read a previous post here about the show and WaWa? and decided to watch. Good show. Kate does a good job with a non English accent-can’t say anything about a PA accent-not sure?. Though I’m told she gets the unh sound right(from a PA person-don’t really know what that means) Think the acting is really good all around-Jean Smart is pretty awesome in this too. The family dynamics and keeping secrets theme is relevant to so many current situations. Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick’s daughter Sosie is in this too.

    Blair & his wife – sad, very dyanmic looking couple.

    R.I.P. BJ Thomas, Raindrops & Hooked on a Feeling are a couple of favorite songs.

    Blair Underwood is about to turn 57 years old in August. Wow! The man is still as handsome as ever, like fine wine. His father was a colonel in the military, and I believe his mom was an interior decorator at some point in her life. His parents are still married. His mom has multiple sclerosis. So I believe they were strong role models for him to have a family life that was stable for his children. As a good-looking, successful actor, few marriages last as long as theirs did. His wife is gorgeous. What a shame.

    I wonder if he will end up with a 30-something. A singer in a band I like at the age of 57 lost his wife he had been with since their late teens. So 40 years together when she died. He not long after began dating a 32-year-old and is now married to her. He’s 60. She’s 34. I always wondered how his kids in their 20s felt. Not only losing their mom, but then dad with the much younger woman.

    That’s sad about Blair and Desiree. But wow they are both extremely attractive people!
