Thorne-Smith Honeymoon Ends
Former Ally McBeal and Melrose Place regular Courtney Thorne-Smith is separating from her new husband, her publicist said on January 4, 2001, according to Mr. Showbiz.
Thorne-Smith married genetic scientist Andrew Conrad only seven months ago, in what the actress described as an impulsive ceremony, while the two were on vacation in Hawaii. She and Conrad were already engaged and simply decided to get married on the spot, with such last-minute arrangements as humming guests instead of musicians performing the wedding march.
Today, the 32-year-old actress issued a brief statement that read, "Andy and I have mutually decided to separate. There are no third parties involved. We remain good friends and will share custody of our dog."
Ironically, Thorne-Smith, in all her wedding splendor, was just featured on the cover of InStyle magazine's spring 2001 wedding issue.
Thorne-Smith gave up her regular status on Ally McBeal in May after three seasons. She cited the constant pressure to remain thin for the Fox series, whose star, Calista Flockhart is notoriously underweight. – Albawaba.com.
