Winnie Cooper is Single

June 7th, 2012 // 61 Comments

Winnie Cooper‘s husband Mike Verta looks like this while she’s a super-hot 35-year-old who’s also into voicing comic book and video game characters and probably tastes like strawberries, so you’ll be surprised to learn he couldn’t hold on to her because a woman like this requires the soft, delicate touch of a man who’s seen minimal manual labor yet knows how to power ring a butt. (Full Disclosure: I honestly don’t know how to do that last one, but I’m willing to learn.) People reports:

The couple, who have a prenuptial agreement, separated on June 1, according to court papers filed Monday in L.A. Superior Court. McKellar cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on the popular ’90s TV show, has a 1½-year-old son, Draco Verta, with Verta. McKellar is seeking joint custody.

She named their kid Draco? (Let’s not pretend who wore the pants here.) Winnie Cooper, get out of my dreams and into my basement full of collectible figurines. MOC, baby. MOC… But, seriously, try not to touch them. The human skin gives off oils that over time will erode- You know what? That’s more of a second date talk. Let’s take things slow.

    “Irreconcilable differences” means he accidentally moaned “Winnie” one too many times.

    I’m so tired of those bandage dresses. And she doesn’t even need it.

    Winnie Cooper + Chris Hardwick = Nerd Paradise. Hollywood, I don’t ask for much, but make this happen!

  12. I prefer to remember her like this:

    Daddy told me “Son, NEVER, EVER, EVER marry an actress.” I’ve found it to be good advice. But if anyone here thinks that she will turn out to be a smart, geeky, kind wife–and not a high-maintenance, narcissistic, ditzy shrew who famed her way to her degree–well, more power to you.

    • USDA Prime McBeef

      She has a bachelor’s degree. You basically just have to show up with some level of consistency for 4 years. It’s not like you need to ‘fame’ your way through it. Faming your way through it is like when Shaq gets a PhD from a community college.

      but yeah, she’s likely high-maintenance, narcissistic, and a ditzy shrew.

      • Burt

        Actually, she has a PhD.

      • theoriginal LJ

        Degree in Mathematics, and Summa Cum Laude.

      • USDA Prime McBeef

        outside of a few celeb gossip sites, the internet does not seem to agree that she has a PhD. Which is good. Those things are for the upper echelon of nerds and douches.

      • And Mayim Bialik. Though she may fall in the nerd category.

      • I hope she falls into a crack in the earth’s crust and keeps on going. She may have a PhD in neuroscience but she’s still breastfeeding her three year old because she believes in “attachment parenting”. Kid’s gonna have a hard time when college starts and he still needs to run home for titmilk and cookies.

        mayim bialik looks like she should have a PhD. meaning, she is not hot.

        I am not trying to start an argument or anything along those lines, I am just chiming in on the breastfeeding issue – you know, throwing in some facts.

        Breastfeeding is very, very beneficial for infants – a child that is anywhere from a newborn to 2 years of age – and is still very beneficial after the age of two. Some of the benefits are better immune health, less of chance for childhood obesity, lower chance of allergies, and possibly even higher IQs, among other things. Let’s be honest here, don’t we all hear lots of complaining and worrying about these very issues? More people with higher IQ’s and less allergies wouldn’t hurt, right? It is also worth noting that babies/toddlers can and do wean themselves, usually after the age of one year.

        Breastfeeding is also very healthy for the mother, as it helps the mother lose the pregnancy weight, releases hormones that regulate the mood of the mother and promotes bonding between mother and child, and even has long-term health benefits such as less of a chance to get certain cancers.

        Mayim’s child is three years old, and is still at an age where breastfeeding is necessary and beneficial.

      • Trek Girl

        Regarding the last sentence that I wrote: I meant to type “legitimate”, not “necessary”.

      • Neither “legitimate” or “necessary” are either correct or accurate terms. Hell, autoerotic asphyxiation is also “legitimate” when it comes to producing an orgasm, but that still doesn’t mean it’s a great idea.

      • Sweetie, if you haven’t lost your pregnancy weight and you’re still hormonal three fucking years after delivery, prolonged breastfeeding is not gonna help you lose weight or even out your mood swings. And if you’re still nursing your child when he has his “milk teeth” and is on other solids and liquids (and at age three, he better be) your breast milk is actually cariogenic, which means it’s far more likely to give your pre-schooler cavities.

        I will see your studies and raise you my Johns Hopkins finding, which shows prolonged breastfeeding actually stunts your child’s height as well as lowers his weight, and a Kings College London study which shows it actually has no impact whatsoever after six months in reducing eczema, asthma or other childhood allergies.

        Seriously, if you’re still nursing your child at age three you’re doing it because it satisfies an unmet emotional need in you, not to bolster your child’s immune system.

        And, where, may I ask, is daddy in this equation? Because unless he has a breast milk fetish, your child’s extended feeding needs are now intruding on his sexual ones. So while mommy may be ecstatic at being a semi-permanent milk bar, I’ll bet you anything that by year three he’s probably contemplating divorce or is just getting laid elsewhere.

      • @justifiable: You are the fucking man. That’s exactly what I wanted to say. From the moment a child has aenough teeth to handle solid foods, his Mom’s tit has no business being in his mouth. Attachment parenting is bullshit.

      • And Shaq has an Ed.D., not a Ph.D.

      • Ph.D… piled high and deep.

      • Mandeep

        Archer is right about the information but I ralely think she is optimistic about the rates of the hotels . Mykonos is ralely expensive this time of year and I think you would be lucky if you find room cheaper than 120 Eur per night..

    • I’ve actually met her in the Macy’s shoe department (don’t ask). She’s an incredibly nice person and very down to earth, so I really doubt she’s any of those things. Divorce is a bitch, especally with a kid involved, but look, sometimes people just grow apart and want different things – why does she have to be a narcissistic bitch as well? I wish her nothing but happiness.

  18. Am I the only one who had to look up “MOC”? I’m still not sure if it stands for “Mint on Card” or “My Own Creation, a term commonly used by LEGO fans for custom-built models.”

    • Chupacabra

      I had to look it up, too. I was hoping it was some sex act I hadn’t heard of yet, but alas, I think it was Lego nerdtalk.

    • The Garbage Man

      In this case it means Mint on Card. It means the collectible figurines Fish mentions in the previous sentence are still in their unblemished, original packaging.

      FYI, I feel a strange mix of kinship with Fish and boundless pity for both him and myself right now.

  19. El Jefe

    Deliciously delicious woman. She could dress up in a naughty schoolteacher outfit and actually be legitimate.

  20. Kevin Arnold

    Finally she is free. Paul wasn’t doing me any good.

  21. EmmaWatson's Vagina

    i wouldn’t kick her out of bed.

  28. Another one of the few women I would ascribe the word gorgeous to. The only thing I remember from the Wonder Years was me wondering what this strange new sensation in my pants was upon seeing her.

    I would marry her.
