girlfriends guide to divorce Janeane Garofalo out of 'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' midway through Season 1Janeane Garofalo has filed for divorce from “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” according to a report from TVLine.

A source says that Garofalo’s character Lyla, who plays Abby’s (Lisa Edelstein) tough lawyer friend, will continue shooting through October and that Lyla’s departure from Abby’s life will occur as part of the evolution of Abby’s character in Season 1 as she navigates her divorce from her husband while maintaining her seemingly-perfect life as a self-help author. 

The creators are currently casting for a different actress to fill Garofalo’s hole in the show, but not as the same character. The series premieres in December on Bravo.
