Patrick Dempsey's wife files for divorce from the 'Grey's Anatomy' star

Patrick Dempsey's wife, Jillian Fink, has filed for divorce from the actor made famous as "McDreamy" on "Grey's Anatomy." 

Dempsey and Fink made the decision to split "with careful consideration and mutual respect" and are focused on their kids' well-being, his rep said in a statement to several outlets.

TMZ, which first reported the filing Friday, said the two don't have a prenuptial agreement to guide them through parceling out an estimated $40 million brought in during their union.

The couple tied the knot in July 1999, six years before "Grey's" would launch its successful run on TV. It was the actor's second marriage.

Dempsey, 49, and Fink, a makeup artist, have three kids together: 12-year-old Tallulah Fyfe and 7-year-old twins Sullivan and Darby.

The decision to split was "mutual," according to a statement her rep gave People.

Alec Baldwin has a book deal: He'll write memoir 'Nevertheless'

Alec Baldwin will soon be telling his story in more than 140 ticked-off characters: Dude's writing a book.

The "30 Rock" star's memoir, to be titled "Nevertheless," has a tentative publication date of fall 2016 with HarperCollins' Harper imprint, the publisher said in a statement Friday. 

Not suprisingly, the book promises to mix Baldwin's (typically strong) opinions on the media and politics in with his personal stories.

"In this memoir he writes about his family, lovers, friends and enemies, confronts his former demons, relives the highs and lows of his career, and opens up in an unflinchingly honest way about his life and times," Harper honcho Jonathan Burnham said in the statement.

Those are pretty big promises to live up to for Baldwin, who according to the publisher will write the book himself. As in, no ghost writer.

Still, we expect big things from the man who, after being arrested on suspicion of bicycling the wrong way on a one-way street, characterized New York City as a...

Jennifer Lopez has a pretty big booty -- for a small Guatemalan man

Jennifer Lopez's booty is no longer the "hugest butt in the world," she admits.

Also, she was not born a man.

In case you'd been wondering.

"Years ago, when I first started acting, everybody was a size 1 and 2 at that time," Lopez told Andy Cohen on Thursday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live." 

"So me being a size 6 was like, whoa! That's like, wow!"

The "Boy Next Door" star revealed her reality during those booty-licious days: "I used to go between a 6, an 8 and a 10 all of the time, 'cause I'd gain weight and lose it and whatever. And that was, like, I had the hugest butt in the world.

"Now it's like small potatoes compared to some of this Instagram business!"

Nicky Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, are you listening?

Lopez also revealed -- possibly for the first time -- the weirdest false rumor she's ever heard about herself.

"One time this makeup artist brought an article ... about the fact that I was actually a small Guatemalan man, and how I transformed myself into 'J. Lo,'"...

'Mortdecai's' Depp, Paltrow spill secrets playing 'Never Have I Ever'

Only Ellen DeGeneres can get stars to spill their secrets in the most playful way.

The daytime-TV star hosted Gwyneth Paltrow, Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany -- from the cast of the zany art caper "Mortdecai" -- on Thursday and they played a lively round of "Never Have I Ever," a truth-telling game that required the stars to reveal a few embarrassing tidbits from their pasts.

The results: Bettany and Depp have both been to a nude beach and have been arrested, and have lied to get a job, but they've never "sexted."

Paltrow, however, has sexted.

Depp and Paltrow have joined the "mile-high club" and Paltrow and Bettany have weaseled their way out of speeding tickets by playing the celebrity card.

They've all seen each other naked and have said a baby was cute when it was "obviously ugly."

Goop founder Paltrow said Depp is "the funniest person" she's ever worked with.

"I wet myself and like pitted out badly," she said, after admitting that she...
