April 20, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Bob Guiney, onetime star of ABC‘s The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, is about to be a single man once again. The reality TV star’s wife, All My Children’s Rebecca Budig has filed for divorce. The couple publicly split earlier this year after five years of marriage. Keep reading for more of the heartbreaking details…

Bob Guiney was so well-loved and widely received as a potential suitor for Trista Rehn on ABC‘s The Bachelorette that he earned a spot as The Bachelor during the series’ fourth season. Not surprisingly, his relationship from the show didn’t last, but it seemed as though he had finally found true love with All My Children star, Rebecca Budig. The couple fell in love and were married in July 2004.

Unfortunately, earlier this year there were reports of trouble in paradise and the couple publicly separated in January. At the time, the couple issued this statement: “We love each other very much. We are best friends and don’t know what the future holds.” Friends of The Bachelor star and Budig were wary that the relationship would work itself out, saying, “Lately it’s become clear that nothing is going to save this. They’ve just grown apart and are no longer the people they were when they got married.”

It’s clear now that the relationship just couldn’t be saved. On April 15th, Rebecca Budig filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences. In the papers, she requested that Guiney be denied any spousal support. She also listed the date of their separation as September of 2009 indicating that trouble was brewing much longer than anyone knew.
