Home Improvement kid divorced

Taran Noel SmithTaran Noel Smith, 23, who played youngest son Mark on the sitcom Home Improvement, divorced his 39-year-old wife, Heidi Van Pelt, earlier this year. They married in 2001, when he was 17 and she was 33. They have a son together. The bank has foreclosed on his home in Sherman Oaks, and a video on TMZ.com shows the destruction within the house, including holes in the walls, graffiti and other damage. The real estate description of the house reads, “Absolutely the worst house in a prime location.” The four bedroom/four bath house, which obviously is going to need a lot of work, is being offered for $1.149 million. Smith gave up acting in 1999, when Home Improvement was cancelled.

    Oh yeah? You got married at 17 and divorced by 23 and trashed a house? If you don’t care, why don’t you go read something else other than celebrity news.

    I fell sorry for him, first his parent’s take all his money that he made on the show. Then he Married some one way older then him. Then loved a basement for 3 years. Now he is divorced, And no where to live. His life is one big sad story.

    He’s only 23. I think he has a little bit more time to turn his life around…

    sometime I thought he is gay anyway.. he is stupid and so young to marry older 33 years old lady.. he missed his fun a lot like going to college or universtity to earn a degree or keep acting so his finance will soar up becuase of his career in Home Improvemnts so he decided to stop acting he blew his future away for being poor.. not think straight what he is doing so right now he is 23 years old so.. back to square one then start to acting right now !! if any other film or tv companies want to cast him in any show.. by the way i love Home Improvements that make me laugh becasue of Tim Allen look at the bright side Tim Allen kept acting in any films or tv that is why his finance is good than stupid boy anyway i wish him good luck !!!!

    Whoa Dude,

    You should change your name to “The Rambler”.
    It would suit you much netter than your real name.
    Just food for thought……..

    Of course he divorced her. She wasn’t producing any more milk in her breasts to feed this piece of shit anymore! Goddamn bitch is old enough to be his gramma. Way to go whoever the F you are!
