On Friday, Busy announced her split from her husband, Marc Silverstein.

During an episode of her podcast Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best on Friday, May 27, 2022, Philipps disclosed her split from her husband, Marc Silverstein.

“It’s been a really long time since Marc and I have been apart, and our kids know, our relatives know, our friends know,” the 42-year-old told her co-hosts. And we spoke about how I should handle it publicly because it was February of last year when we initially split up.

“But the truth is, we, know, there’s a conventional understanding of what a person in the public eye is supposed to do when their relationship ends, and it’s been pretty well established, right?” the Girls5eva star continued. Like, you make a statement, you’re committed to remaining friends, and you say things like, ‘Please respect our privacy and our family’s privacy during this time,’ right? But the truth is, who came up with that rule? That’s how you do it? I’m not joking.”

“When Marc and I initially separated, we couldn’t even think about putting one of those things out — it made us sick, both of us, honestly sick,” Busy continued. It’s going to be a long voyage. Jour-ney. It’s been an adventure.”

Philipps also discussed the couple’s two children.
