The all grown up “Little House on The Prairie” girl, Melissa Gilbert is selling her house as she and husband Bruce Boxleitner head toward divorce.  This is probably not how TV papa Michael Landon would’ve wanted to see things end up for his “Half Pint,” but the decor in her home sure does remind me of something America’s Midwestern Ingalls family might enjoy. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved the TV show and read the whole book series. Now that I live in Minnesota I have yet to make it down to Walnut Grove to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder look-a-like contest along the banks of Plum Creek. One day.  In the mean time, check out photos of Melissa Gilbert’s Tarzana, Calif. home here at Aol Real Estate and read the full story here. To see a video of the Ingalls-Wilder wedding, or to hear Gilbert discuss her own parents’ divorce, see more after the jump.  Good luck to you Melissa.

Tony Danza has filed for divorce from his estranged wife, Tracy, after 24 years of marriage, reported TMZ.  Although they have been separated since 2006, the ‘Who’s the Boss’ and ‘Taxi’ alum cited irreconcilable differences for ending the marriage.

The couple has two daughters, Katherine, 23, and Emily, 17, which means Danza waited just long enough to file so that he does not have to pay child support or deal with a custody battle. Even on the March 4 2011-filed court papers he checked “there are no minor children.”

Charlie Sheen wants his kids to live real close by?

Charlie Sheen wants two of his ex-wives to move into his gated Los Angeles community, and he is willing to foot the bill for the house and the moving expenses so that he can live closer to his four children, reports AOL Real Estate.

Experts say it is good for the kids if divorce parents live within close proximity of each other, but only if they can all get along. “They must have resolved their anger, internal pain, hurt, and practice forgiveness for and with each other,” says Dr. Joyce Morley.

Just how would one describe Charlie Sheen’s relationship with exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller?

Buying a home from a divorcing couple can have its advantages and disadvantages.

Imagine putting an offer in on your dream home only to attend the pre-inspection walk-through to learn that a bitter, divorcing husband flooded the house the night before by leaving all of the faucets running. That actually happened with a New York home where the husband just didn’t want the wife to have money from the home sale proceeds.

We always hope that when we have an accepted offer on a home that we will actually close, but there can be hiccups along the way due to the family dynamics of the sellers. And when divorce is involved, fingers crossed that you’ll even get an accepted offer.

Read what the experts have to say about buying a divorce home.

Dennis Hopper, who passed  away in May at age 74, was in the middle of divorce proceedings when he died of prostate cancer complications.

In the old days you might find the father of the bride behind a two-barrel shotgun to make sure the groom walked down the aisle to make an “honest woman” of his daughter. Today your father-in-law might just sue you if you stray from his daughter. At least that’s the case with on Chicago attorney, initials C.S.

C.S., in a lawsuit filed in Cook County, is demanding that his former son-in-law, S.L., reimburse him for the $75,000 dad paid toward S.L.’s wedding to his daughter. In addition, he wants $1 million for the emotional pain he suffered when he learned S.L. allegedly cheated on his daughter and gave her an STD before their December 2009 divorce.  Continue Reading »
