At the stroke of midnight on January 2nd, Dylan McDermott will be single when his divorce with wife Shiva Rose McDermott will be official. The pair, married in 1995 and have two children, have been separated since 2007. McDermott filed to start the divorce process back in June.
After only eight weeks of marriage, Chris Kattan has filed for separation from his wife model Sunshine Tutt. The pair had been engaged since 2006, finally married on June 28th, and papers for separation were filed on August 10th.

According to the paperwork filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court the pair have a prenuptial agreement, but the specifics have not been mentioned.
