It was a marriage made in infomercial heaven. But – after a 33-year union – Tae Bo guru Billy Blanks's wife filed for legal separation Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences.

According to the papers, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Gayle Blanks is seeking spousal support. She also asks that her husband – famous for his blend of martial arts and boxing – be responsible for legal fees.

The couple has an adult son, Billy Jr., and an adopted daughter, Shellie (who is featured prominently in the Tae Bo DVD series).
