Brooke Burke and Husband Call it Quits
July 28, 2005
America's favorite pin-up girl Brooke Burke and her husband, Garth Fisher, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon featured on ABC's "Extreme Makeover," are calling it quits after seven years of marriage.
People magazine Senior Editor Jamie Bufalino announced that it was professional differences that ultimately moved the couple in separate directions. "It turns out I think it was just professional differences," Bufalino said. "They both kind of are going in separate directions. They have their careers to worry about, and it just seems like it's not working for them."
But despite the split, the couple claims their two small children will remain their top priority. "They're both very interested in keeping the home life as calm as possible for them," Bufalino said. "So far everything seems to be done on a very amicable basis."
Last fall, Brooke invited "Extra" into the couple's home for a tour. And at the time, she seemed very much in love, showing off their wedding pictures and a special gift she got from her husband.
The couple is now living apart. But for the kids' sakes, they are planning on remaining lifelong friends.
