• Divorcing: Actress Mayim Bialik, 36, and husband Michael Stone, after nine years and two children, she announced on her Web site Wednesday. “Irreconcilable differences,” said the former child star (“Blossom”) who has enjoyed an unusual comeback recently as both an Emmy-nominated star of “The Big Bang Theory” and a popular attachment-parenting blogger.
