Ex friends or back together? impractical jokeralum joe cat and his estranged wife bessy cat reside at the same address as “husband and wife” according to a deed obtained by In contact. The news comes after the comedian announced that the couple was separating on December 31, 2021.
The couple purchased the home in Glen Head, New York, noting their relationship status on the deed filed in June 2022. On January 10, 2023, a document was filed stating that the mortgage had been satisfied and that Joe and Bessy own and reside in the home together, more than two years after they announced their decision to separate.
Although the status of their divorce is sealed under the state of New York, Joe and Bessy seem to still be close friends. They vacationed with their two children, Milana, 7, and Remington, 5, to the Bahamas in January 2023, where they seemed like one big happy family. Bessy shared a heartwarming video of the four of them having the time of their lives at a resort as they played on the water slides, frolicked on the beach and took a family photo in front of a Christmas tree.
One fan wrote in the comments: “It looks like a lot of fun. You and Joe decided to patch things up? Anyway, happy for you. Your children are adorable!”
In an Instagram post on Friday, April 28, 2023, Bessy shared images showing Joe’s arm around her as they attended a New York Second Chance Rescue gala, as they are both dog lovers and have strongly supported the charity. “Gala season continues with some of my favorite people. What a wonderful night, thank you so much @nycscr for an amazing event,” Bessy wrote in the caption, though she did not tag Joe in the post.
The Staten Island native told fans about his separation from his wife of eight years in a New Years 2021 Instagram post, where he also dropped the bombshell that he was leaving the comedy group he helped found in 2011.
“Sorry in advance for the long and more serious than usual note below, I just wanted to let everyone know that I will no longer be involved with impractical jokers. Along with my friends, I have dedicated a decade of my life to building this franchise and I couldn’t be more proud of what has been accomplished,” he began before revealing more important news.
“However, due to some problems in my personal life, I have to step away. Bessy and I have decided to amicably separate, so now I need to focus on being the best father and co-father to our two amazing children,” she added.
Bessy then shared a post of her own, where she told followers: “Although we will no longer be a couple, we will always be a family to our beautiful children, and we look forward to parenting together. We ask that you respect our privacy as we navigate this new chapter together.”
Since then, the couple has done what they promised, amicably raising their children and participating in events as a family.
