Shriver and Lazenby to divorce
Commentator and former doubles champion Pam Shriver has filed for divorce from Australian actor George Lazenby after six years of marriage. Shriver and Lazenby have three children.
Lazenby--who is alleged to have been offered a seven-picture deal but turned it down--played the role of James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. He was also the European Marlboro Man. He was formerly married to Christina Gannett of the Gannett Newspaper Publishing family.
Shriver, who won 22 majors in doubles and an Olympic gold medal, is currently best known as a tennis commentator for ESPN. However, she also provides commentary for ABC, CBS, the BBC, and 7-Sport.
