"I Was Nervous": Mayim Bialik On Spending Thanksgiving With Her Ex-Husband And His New Girlfriend

December 3, 2018

Divorce is never easy, either for parents and their children. Often, it involves deciding how the spouses are going to divide property, finances, and even custody of their kids! It also brings a lot of negative emotions with it, along with fights and ill-will.

Like many other people, Mayim Bialik had to go through a divorce. But luckily, both she and her ex-husband remained quite friendly and figured out how to co-parent their two children and create the healthiest possible environment.

And their rule #1 is doing things together!

One of the examples is, of course, celebrating holidays as a family. Just a few days ago, The Big Bang Theory star revealed that she had spent Thanksgiving at her ex’s. And what is even more surprising, she spent it with his new girlfriend, her kids, and her ex-husband. As Mayim said:

I would be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous. I am single again and it was painful to be “alone.”


But fortunately, she also had support in the form of her mom and best friend who were present at the party. And the thought of her kids seeing their parents celebrating different events together motivated her to push through and do it:

I have two children. That’s a blessing. I have an ex-husband who is not perfect and who sometimes irritates me, but all in all, he is pretty awesome. He has a fantastic girlfriend–truly. She’s delightful. And she wants her family intact even though they are also divorced.

How did the evening go? It was quite enjoyable, and we hope Bialik and her ex will find more and more ways to make their kids’ lives special.

What are Mayim’s future plans?

The Big Bang Theory is ending, and the actress is looking forward to other projects, including those she will be producing. And we’re looking forward to her incredible performance in other TV series.
