'Charmed' Star Holly Marie Combs Files For Divorce

I guess the marriage just lost its charm. Get it? Because she was on that show.

Charmed actress, Holly Marie Combs, has filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, David Donoho. And oh, how original, the couple is blaming "irreconcilable differences."

The pair have dated for more than ten years after they original met on the set of Charmed. Combs starred in the show, obviously, and Donoho was a key-grip of the show's production back in 2001. Banging and then locking down an actress is every key grip's dream!

The two made it official in 2004, saying "I do" on Valentine's Day, of all holidays. They have three kids together: Finley, 7, Riley, 5 and Kelley, 2.

Combs has requested joint custody of their children, according to TMZ. This is the actress' second divorce, as she was previously married to Bryan Travis Smith in the early nineties.

Combs starred in the show alongside Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, and Shannen Doherty. The show originally aired in 1998. It was basically about four hot witch sisters. Seriously, I think that was the tagline. Kaley Cuoco also made a guest appearance on the show.

"I just had to accept that what I do is basically entertainment," Combs said of the gig. "It can't be ground-shaking moral dilemmas all the time," she said.

The 37 year-old actress first appeared in the 1992 TV drama, Picket Fences. The series won Combs a Young Artist award. Combs talks of her younger days on the show:

"I was the angriest little person imaginable. I woke up with a frown every morning. I barely talked, wore black all the time and had some serious teenage rebellion years."

In 1997, Shannen Doherty was given the pilot script for Charmed, and she took her friend, Holly, with her. The two ended up getting the part and then became producers for the show in its fourth season.

"Holly's fiery and feisty," Doherty said. "I knew she'd be perfect."

Alyssa Milano praised her costars talents, as well: "she can be dry like Bob Newhart or physically hilarious," Milano said.

Combs said the idea of playing a witch was "fun to do pure fantasy. Everyone keeps comparing us to Charlie's Angels, and I'm
always compared to Kate Jackson," she says. "That's all right with me."

Combs made a TV comeback in June 2010 in the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars.
