Tia Carrere has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, Simon Wakelin. This is Carrere’s second divorce — her first marriage to Elie Samaha ended in 2000. The marriage to Samaha lasted almost eight years. Both divorces were as a result of “irreconcilable differences.”
Carrere reportedly filed divorce recently through the Los Angeles Supreme Court and it’s said that Carrere is seeking sole physical custody of the couple’s daughter, Bianca.
The gorgeous Hawaiian-born Tia started her career off with a starring role in TV’s Airwolf, which I don’t remember ’cause I’m under thirty, and she then went on to star on soap-staple General Hospital. In 1991, Carrere debuted her big-screen talents in two obscure movies — Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man and Showdown in Little Tokyo — before landing her breakthrough role in Wayne’s World. Every time I hear Sweet’s Ballroom Blitz, I think of the lovely Cassandra.
Good luck to Carrere and family … divorce pretty much always sucks.
