After 43 years of marriage, Mary Ann Mobley and Gary Collins call it quits. The couple filed for legal seperation earlier this month and records show that they have been living apart since October 1, 2010.
Mobley's rep tells TMZ, Maryann is miserable about the whole situation.
Maryann Mobley, former Miss America 1959 and best known to Elvis fans as the king's co-star in Harum Scarum & Girl Happy, is battling stage 3 breast cancer and is undergoing chemo and radiation at this time.
Gary is extremely depressed about his wife's illness and they both need the break. Gary has had his own battles, he was arrested 3 times and convicted twice for DUI.
My best memories of Gary Collins are from his 80's talk show, Hour Magazine. Here is a clip of an interview he did with Bette Davis. It's odd to see her light up on a tv talk show. Not seen today!
Mary Ann will be a special guest at Elvis Week 2012 in Memphis, TN this August.
We wish both Mary Ann and Gary much happiness and good health! Please keep these lovely people in your thoughts and prayers!
