A "Melrose" Divorce

Two Melrose Place alums are experiencing some modern day drama of their own.

Josie Bissett and Rob Estes have announced plans to divorce, ending their marriage of more than 13 years.

Estes, 42, said that he moved out of the couple's Seattle home, where they have lived since the late '90s, nearly seven months ago at her behest.

The actor also said that it was his wife, 35, who requested the divorce and that he didn't want it. The divorce is not yet final. Estes made his remarks during an appearance at the Television Critics Association meeting earlier this week.

There was no immediate comment from Bissett's rep.

Bissett and Estes met in 1991 during a casting call for a TV movie and married May 1, 1992. The same year, Bissett joined the original cast of Melrose Place, a spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210 featuring the trials and tribulations of bed-hopping twentysomethings in a Hollywood apartment complex. Bissett starred as Jane Andrews Mancini, long suffering wife to Dr. Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro).

In 1996, Estes also joined the ensemble; when Bissett became pregnant later that year, she temporarily left the show. She returned in 1998 after suffering a miscarriage and remained with Melrose Place through its series finale in 1999.

Estes and Bissett welcomed their first child, son Mason True, on July 21, 1999. Their second child, daughter Maya Rose, was born Apr. 14, 2002.

After Fox shuttered Melrose Place, Bissett and Estes kept a relatively low profile, relocating to Bissett's hometown of Seattle. But they recently costarred in the ABC Family original movie I Do, They Don't, which aired on the family-friendly cable net last March.

Estes just finished filming the big-screen romantic comedy How to Go Out On a Date in Queens, alongside Jason Alexander and Kimberly Williams.

He has also been busy on the small screen. He costarred with Kristin Davis in ABC's Desperate Housewives-esque pilot Soccer Moms, which the network declined to pick up, but then signed on to the ABC midseason replacement crime drama The Evidence with Orlando Jones, which will debut later this season.

Isn't it a shame the number of marriages that break up? Unfortunately the celebrity couples are the ones who receive the publicity which I Would think would be even more hurtful and embarrassing for the families.

I feel sad for the children. Soon to be ages 7 and 4. That's horrible. You would think they would try to work it out for the sake of the kids.
