'Buffy' Actress Splits From Husband
"They are separated and now living separately," Carpenter's rep Jeff Raymond confirmed Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Carpenter, 37, and Hardy tied the knot in October 2002. The following March, they had their first child together, son Donovan Charles.
According to ABC, Carpenter will guest star on "Big Shots" on Dec. 13 as Heather, whose sexy charms the character Brody (Christopher Titus) finds "increasing irrestistible."
Carpenter is best known as playing Cordelia Chase on "Buffy" and "Angel." More recently, she was seen meeting a fiery death on "Veronica Mars" and as a national sorority representative on ABC Family's "Greek."
