The 51 years old lady left something about the trauma of the split for the first time with Daily Mail in 2012.
'Twenty years. It’s a very long time,' she tells the June issue of Ladies Home Journal.' I think the institute of marriage is a noble thing. The idea of a partner for life is incredibly romantic. But now we’re living to 100. A hundred years ago people were dying at age 37. Til death do us part was a much different deal.'
In addition, Messing noted 'When I say the move to New York was traumatic, it was traumatic because every aspect of my life was going through a huge change,'

Messing herself admitted,
"I never stop. I work all the time. I’m always involved with something. I never spend enough time with my son. Never. I always want more."
"I am a success when I feel like I have a balance of the things that are important to me. The times when I was not happy or not fulfilled were when I was neglecting certain parts of myself, whether it was neglecting to be a great mom or being completely there at work. It’s an act of balance."
No doubt, the diva is a proud mother and a most probably a good lover!
