She plays Larry David’s wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm but, in real life, Cheryl Hines’ marriage to her husband of nearly eight years, producer and manager Paul Young, has come to an end.

Cheryl Hines' rep confirmed in a statement today that the actress and Young quietly filed for divorce over a month ago, on July 20.

While no split can be totally amicable, her rep stated, "They will remain extremely close friends and will raise their daughter together."

Cheryl Hines and Paul Young have agreed to share custody of their 6-year-old daughter Catherine Rose.

Beyond acting, Hines is also making a name for herself as a director. She got behind the camera to direct Meg Ryan in 2009's Serious Moonlight.

Showing no signs of grief, Hines was out and about last night at the Audi and Chopard Emmy Awards kickoff party in West Hollywood -- looks like she's single and ready to mingle [photo at right!].
