Not Funny: Comedians Amy Poehler & Will Arnett to Divorce — What Happened?

In Happier Times: Amy Poehler and Will Arnett

Will Arnett and Amy Poehler were one of those couple we all loved to love. As the Bloggess said, “Amy Poehler and Will Arnett split. I want to punch this day in the face.”

They were cute, lovable and hilarious. But sadly, after nine years of marriage the dynamic duo are calling it quits.

It has been confirmed that the couple have separated and will divorce. What makes matters worse is that they couple have two young children, Archie, 3, and Abel, 2 but according to a sources the split is “amicable.”

What happened?

The two were always very supportive of each other. “I was always attracted to funny people, and Will is so talented and funny,” Poehler told Katie Couric in an interview. “We are genuinely each other’s fans and we love what the other does. I don’t know a lot of other couples where you’re with your partner and you’re like, ‘I love what you do at work!” And they had even worked together on several projects.

But if there is one thing we have learned from celebrity marriages, they are hard to keep going. Not only do they have the stress of being in the public eye but both Amy and Will are busy with their own shows. Even though the two are incredibly funny, life isn’t always all laughs.
