Todd Bridges, wife end 14-year marriage

Actor/director Todd Bridges and his wife Dori have decided it's best if they part ways.

As the 47-year-old former "Diff'rent Strokes" star said in a statement to People magazine, "The Bridges have decided that disunion is in the best interest of their collective futures."

The couple, who have been married for 14 years, also have a 13-year-old son, Spencir.

Bridges wrote of the break-up on Twitter Friday, acknowledging that "life is full of changes."

"She's a great mother im glad to have had the years to know her and have a great kid with her," Bridges posted. "[A]s we know, people grow apart and we did."

    A hetero marriage failing? But they had a "holy" union. Hope they don't sleep with someone else, as that is adultery! Disgusting filth... hetero marriage should be out-lawed!

    Todd Bridges?? When you see the name "Bridges" in a headline, Todd Bridges is the last one you think of. I though Jeff Bridges was splitting.

    Just think it is more important issues to report than a couple that has not had to wear a uniform and fight to support our freedom. It would seem more important to be talking about all our these soldiers male and female that is coming home all messed up and cannot get the medical care they so deserve. That to me is real news not someone that just got tired of being married and wealthy.

      Oh brother. Yet another clueless idiot spouting off and trying to sound intelligent, when in fact you sound like a moron seeing this is the ENTERTAINMENT page, not the front page or editorial page. If you knew anything, you'd know in hollywood, that if someone sneezes, it's news. Boring yes, but if you don't want to read it, DON'T!!

    • Totally trite, mediocre and mundane news....

      Who could possibly care about this? Other than VERY FAT lazy women who have a low self-esteem and sit around the house all day. Turns out those are the same people that I support through higher health care premiums because I stay fit and in good shape. Time for fat, lazy women to get the lead out.

    • WaitWhat?

      Bridges said he was molested by his publicist, not "Mr. Drummond", and abused by his father. That is in his book Killing Willis. Can you tell fact from fiction? His father is not Mr. Drummond. That was just a TV show... oh and the Brady Bunch aren't a real family either. sorry.

    Todd Bridges don't have a lot of money but his mother invested wisely for him she even kept his big house while he was going through his most severe drug addiction...when he seemed sustainable enough she helped him sale the house for a good chunk of money he is not rich by Hollywood standards but he has about 5-7 millions in the bank........
