Kimmel's Getting Divorced Jun 18, 12:37 PM EST

(Associated Press) -- The wife of late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has filed for divorce after more than 13 years of marriage.

Gina Kimmel cited irreconcilable differences in court documents filed Monday in Superior Court. The couple will share joint custody of their two children, an 11-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son.

The pair separated in April.

An after-hours message left Tuesday for Gina Kimmel's attorney wasn't returned.

Kimmel, 35, is the host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and was co-host of "The Man Show" on Comedy Central. He was recently named to host the American Music Awards on Nov. 16.

I can't believe that she stayed with him this long. I have not watched his late night show, but the "Man Show" was classic television. Girls jumping on trapolines, juggies, beer, and the fox.

Bummer, I thought it was funny as hell when she would do skits with him on the man show.

I can't believe she stayed with him this long, either. I read an article a few months ago stating it was common knowledge that he's been dating someone else for some time now.

Win Ben Steins Money was never the same when Jimmy left. Ben picked up that unfunny woman and the show tanked.

Yeah, it was funny when she was on, but she always looked pissed. I liked when he would have the skit with the "Man Show Boy".

Agreed. I used to watch Win Ben Stein's money every day after school. As soon as Jimmy left I stopped watching. That woman was not funny.

I think Kimmel dumped his wife for Sarah Silverman, who was funny ten years ago in that episode as the first female writer on The Larry Sanders Show.

I can't believe that he stayed with her that long being surrounded by those juggies all the time.

Jimmy's been seeing Sarah Silverman for quite some time now. Unfortunately for him, his late night show stinks.

I have to admit that I spent the summer between my sophomore and junior years in college attempting to drink like the Fox. I was pretty good. I would take on all comers in a chug race. I have since slowed down, but I could go back into training. :)

I have never watched his talk show. I want him to go back to Comedy Central and do more Man Shows.

Comedy Central is taping new episodes of The Man Show with two new hosts. I can't imagine it'll be worth watching without Adam and Jimmy (except for the girls jumping on trampoulines).

It is hard to recreate the magic that was the Man Show with Jimmy and Adam.

I don't understand Kimmel's sense of humor. That chick on Stein was okay after a while. I though Stein really tanked
when Kimmel brought his relative in to replace the chick.

Kimmel's overexposed, IMHO. Can't get away from him. He must be related to the Clintons.

They've been separated for some time now, I believe over two years.

If you ever get a chance to see reruns of the old shows, with The Fox, look closely at the mugs of beer he's guzzling. They're small mugs with a solid bottom that goes half way up the inside of the glass. I'd bet those mugs hold no more than 4-6 ozs. (By the way, the Fox died after the 2nd season).

Kimmel is a no talent hack, who will be forgotten in a few years...take away all sex and bathroom humor, and he has no material.

I hope his wife takes most of what that doofus made.

Say it aint so Jimmy....he is going down the same path Howard Stern went. I expect Jimmy to be shacked up with a model within a year.

Yeah, I noticed that about those mugs. Too bad he died, I wanted to go on the show and challenge him.

It's the same story as Howard Stern - What woman in her right mind would be with a guy who loves drooling over other women (most of whom are swimsuit and underwear models, strippers, and porn stars)?!

These guys have hurt their wives and their kids for scuzzy sluts that won't even want to hang around them in a few years.

The charm of the Man Show wears off quickly--it's only a gag, really, for annoying feminists and naggy wives. So I watched it once in a while just for that reason. Annoying a feminist is fun, but the show just wasn't.

Mostly, it was seldom as funny as the Idea of a Man Show, where men were safe to spit, swear, scratch, and leer.

Did think of "girls on trampolines" was a hoot. er.
