Debbie Matenopoulos learns about her divorce on the Internet.

She is getting a divorce. And of course, she just found out by finding it on the Internet. Her husband, Jay Faires, decided that was the appropriate medium to use. Sounds like too much work to me. In my opinion, getting a divorce is a pretty big deal. I would say that it warrants a text message. Well, maybe a comment on Myspace could work also.

“Debbie, nice new pics! Also, I’m leaving you! Please sign papers. Thanks, Jay.”

Much better eh?

“I am extremely saddened by the dissolution of my seven-year relationship with my husband. I am not a proponent of divorce and I believe in working things out,” says Matenopoulos, a two-time Emmy nominee and former co-host of The View. “So you can only imagine my extreme sadness and disillusionment when I was informed of my husband’s divorce proceedings, much like you were, by reading them online.”
