Reports are coming out all over the place (The National Enquirer, People Magazine) that Matt LeBlanc left Melissa, his wife of three years, for his Joey co-star Andrea Anders. The couple had been separated since mid-January, but sources told NE that Melissa had always held on to the hope that they could work things out. Then in March, good 'ol women's intuition kicked in and she got suspicious that something was going on between Matt and Andrea (always listen to your gut girls).
According to a friend, then when rumors about her husband and Andrea started to get back to her, Melissa confronted Matt and he is said to have told her, "I don't love you anymore. I want to be with Andrea." People reports that Melissa's friend Kelly Phillips said, "It was very sudden. She was absolutely blindsided by what transpired." Even after she found out her husband cheated on her, Andrea still wanted to go to counseling in hopes of reconciliation (ugh! why? hopefully just for the sake of their baby), but according to the friend, "Matt didn't want to work it out." Nice. The NE reports that another friend said, "Matt's easy going, just like his TV character. But he doesn't handle responsibility well. Maybe he couldn't take the pain of a sick baby and his TV show going down the tubes. Andrea gave him a shoulder to cry on and one thing just led to another. She dumped her boyfriend, who moved to Hollywood with her from New York three years ago."
