Jamie Pressly, 33, may play tough-as-nails Joy Turner on My Name is Earl, but real life is testing her resolve.

Pressly and her husband of 16 months, entertainment lawyer Simran Singh, have decided to go their separate ways. "It's over," a source close to the couple told Us Weekly, though they have not yet "officially filed anything."

"I think it comes down to she married this guy too fast. He seemed like a good guy, but he is super full of himself and puts her down for everything. He picks fights with her for any little thing," the source told the maganize said.

Pressly's primary concern is how her separation may affect her son, Dezi, 3, from a previous relationship. "She doesn't want to confuse him. Her baby is her top priority. She is a strong girl though, and she will come out of this fine."

This split comes on the heels of Pressly's arrest three weeks ago due to suspicion of driving under the influence, when she was arrested and booked in Santa Monica following a roadside sobriety test. —KIMBERLY STEELE
