According to TMZ, Lampanelli is filing for divorce today in New York. Lampanelli and husband Cannizzaro have been married for four years.
Cannizzaro was previously married, but that marriage didn’t take because he didn’t seem to want children. The NY Times wrote:
Mr. Cannizzaro, now 49, grew up in Valley Stream on Long Island. “I was kind of a tough kid when I was growing up,” he said. At 23, he married, but his and his wife’s views on children led to a split. She wanted them, he didn’t. “It’s probably something we should have discussed before we got married,” he said.
