Holly Marie Combs Files For Divorce


I will not make some sarcastic remark about how Holly Marie Combs' marriage was not charmed or that it did not turn out to be so magical after all. It is just way too easy to mention the one show where she actually gained some fame. She is on Pretty Little Liars now, but this is nothing like her Charmed years. She kind of was lost in that show though. It is like Gabrielle Carteris who played Andrea on 90210. She was on 90210 forever, but she kind of got swallowed up by the other personalities on the show. Holly was kind of lost on the show. She actually starred in the most episodes of anyone else in the show, but most people remember Alyssa Milano or Rose McGowan or even Shannen Doherty.


Anyway, Holly was married for seven years to a guy who was a key grip on the set of Charmed. His job was to grip all the keys really tightly and to not let go of them until after the work day was over. Kind of like the key master. Not so much like Rick Moranis in Ghostbusters but more like Lloyd in Say Anything. The couple has three children together. Do you think Holly met someone new? Wanted the long hair of their wedding day back? Freaked out when her husband said mullets were back in?

her character was the straight character in CHARMED

Ooooh Enty! I love your blog but I'd cut a bitch over "Piper" because she acted her ass off on that show and was the ONLY person that made that show watchable and sometimes pretty good. I think Holly would have had a bigger career of she had tried to do the T&A like the others but she met this guy, fell in love picked family over "making it big.". I say this because she worked with soderberg and could have had a nice mid-level movie career but has stated that she preferred to work tv films because it meant no far off locations and set hours which helped her be with her kids on a regular basis.

I don't cry easy but that episode of Charmed when she started sobbing over losing Leo to be an elder still gets me going. She is very under appreciated as an actress. She was the only reason I even watched that goofy show.

I agree. She was incredibly under-rated and an excellent actress. I always enjoy the show. Never caught her on Pretty Little Liars. I do wonder what the reason for the break-up is.

Co-signing what everyone else said. Terrific actress. And the fact that she was friends with everyone despite their raging narcissism and petty BS says a lot about her character, IMO.

I agree - Holly wasn't in the tabloids, but she was definitely the heart of Charmed.

What, no comments yet about how "OMGZ, Enty doesn't know what a key grip is! He's a lying liar who lies about being in Hollywood! Faker!"
