This is such boring celebrity news. I wish the both of them luck in this new marriage.

What the hell happened to her and Bruce Boxleitner? I mean, he even got her a small role in the Babylon 5 series back in the late 90's and this is how she repays him? Yikes! Typical female move. As G'Kar would say, "worse than the death of flesh is the death of hope". And in my opinion, if these two people who looked beautiful together, can not make it work, then what the hell chance do the rest of us have? In other words, there is no hope. Just those people we use and those people that use us (Londo said that, not me). Bruce, if you're reading this, I am truly sorry things did not work out between you and Melissa. Like I said, the two of you looked perfect together. I miss Babylon 5. Cheers! Rich L. New Haven,CT
