Jenny McCarthy and her husband John Asher have filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, her publicist said Friday.
The TV star and former Playboy playmate had been married to Asher for six years.
McCarthy, 32, married Asher, a 34-year-old film director, in September 1999. They met when Asher directed McCarthy in the 1999 film “Diamonds.”
The couple has a 3-year-old son, Evan.
McCarthy is currently starring in the new UPN sitcom, “The Bad Girl’s Guide.” Her previous work includes MTV shows “Singled Out” and “The Jenny McCarthy Show” and the short-lived 1997 NBC sitcom “Jenny.”
Her books about pregnancy and motherhood, “Belly Laughs” and “Baby Laughs,” were on the New York Times best seller list.
She wrote and stars in a feature film called “Dirty Love,” which opens in September. Asher also directed that movie.
