Transcript for Mayim Bialik: 'I Cried When I Wrote' Divorce Blog Posts
I want to ask you, scottie, to put it down. We're going to turn to tv star mayim bailik. She's using her blog as a public therapy during her divorce. It's been, after a nine-year marriage, saying she wants to help other women going through the same thing. Abc's abbie boudreau has more on the story. ♪ Don't know about the future ♪ Reporter: Mayim bailik blossomed from a child star, to an emmy-nominated actress, for the hit comedy, "the big bang theory." That's enough. Reporter: Congratulations on your emmy nomination. Thank you. Reporter: Superexciting. Now, the 37-year-old actress and mother of two, young boys, is revealing new insights about her divorce. After nine years of marriage, blogging about the spiritual and emotional toll it's taken. I cried when I wrote all of those posts. I cried when I wrote every, single one of them. Reporter: She remains silent about what led to the breakup. But blogs she was scared, conflicted and wrote, i sometimes wish this wasn't my life. I want to know what you meant by that. I think it often surprises people when celebrities do express very complicated, deep and negative feelings. Like, I wish this wasn't my life. Just because I'm an actor, I can still have those complicated emotions. And I do. Reporter: Bailik also made headlines last year on "gma," defending her controversial approach to motherhood called attachment parenting. Which encourages extended breast-feeding. And for parents to co-sleep with their children in the same bed. Bailik says her youngest son breast fed off and on until he was 4 1/2, which critics say could impact a marriage. I don't feel like I'm sacrificing my sanity. My mental health. I'm not laying my marriage on an altar. Reporter: What about people who think that attachment parenting has something to do with your divorce? There's all sorts of marriages. People break up for all sorts of reasons. We don't need to blame attachment parenting for this one. Reporter: The actor says her attachment parenting may have help her sons better cope with divorce. I think in a positive way, makes them amenable to understanding the complexity of human relationships, you know, people have said, wow. You did like an attachment parenting divorce. And it's interesting. I thought, like, it's a title for a book. Reporter: Or perhaps another blog. I try to present things as they are, with a notion of a possibility for a future. And I guess that is what hope is. Reporter: For "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. The vast majority of celebrities keep quiet when they're going through divorce. This is unusual to have somebody blog about it so openly. They underwent a legal divorce. But in the jewish faith had to go through a religious divorce and talks extensively about that. They had to sit together with the rabbi and explain why they're breaking up. I think it helps you put a punctuation point. I don't know. It's extraordinary, though. She has been candid about it. Very open. Very honest.
