Debra Messing had been married to writer Daniel Zelman for over ten years, but they got divorced in the summer of 2012. In a new interview in the June issue of More Magazine, Debra opens up about still feeling guilty for the divorce.
When discussing her marriage, Debra reveals, "We both wanted it to last forever, and it's a sad thing that it wasn't able to go the course. Part of me will always contend with guilt that I wasn't able to give my son the fantasy that my parents were able to give me."
Debra cites distance and work keeping them apart, and eventually, she explains that she and Daniel couldn't make it work longer. She says that despite their divorce, she and her ex-husband are still working amicably to take care of their 9-year-old son Roman. She explains, "We really tried. We made sacrifices and compromises, and in the end we both realized that we like the day-to-day domestic life. Now we are co-parenting beautifully … We had Thanksgiving together. In my mind, we will be a nuclear family forever."
Debra Messing was most recently seen on the TV show 'Smash' alongside Katharine McPhee. Unfortunately, the show's ratings had gone down so much in recent months that the show was eventually cancelled.
