Kathy Griffin files for divorce from Matt

This is perhaps the most shocking reality television-related news of the year: Kathy Griffin is divorcing her husband, Matt Moline.

Matt was featured on Kathy’s recent Bravo reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, and besides being loving and supportive, was often as funny as Kathy. They seemed like a perfect match, although maybe things changed since the cameras left. Still, in an interview she gave just a few weeks ago, Kathy spoke fondly about Matt and his recent weight loss.

The AP says only that Kathy cites “irreconcilable differences,” and “asks that the couple’s assets be divided and that Moline be denied spousal support.”
