Debra Messing is opening up about her divorce in the June issue of More magazine.
"We both wanted it to last forever, and it's a sad thing that it wasn't able to go the course," the Smash actress says of her 10-year marriage to writer Daniel Zelman.
"Part of me will always contend with guilt that I wasn't able to give my son the fantasy that my parents were able to give me."

Smash is back! And NBC's musical about musicals is delivering a new diva – and even more drama – in season 2.
After a solid preview in Boston, the cast of the Marilyn Monroe musical Bombshell – including dueling divas Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) – are back in the Big Apple and hoping to make their Broadway debut at the fabled St. James Theatre.
But opening isn't going to be easy: Bombshell producer Eileen Rand's ex-husband launches a plan to make her funding disappear and close down the show. While Eileen (Anjelica Huston) and her team, director Derek Wills (Jack Davenport) and writers Julia Houston (Debra Messing) and Tom Levitt (Christian Borle), do their best to keep up appearances, Smash's characters deal with a variety of other problems.

Debra Messing and husband Daniel Zelman want to keep their divorce civil for the sake of their 8-year-old son, the actress's rep says in a statement to PEOPLE.
Messing, 44, cited the usual irreconcilable differences and is seeking joint custody, according to Tuesday's divorce petition in Los Angeles Superior Court.
"Debra Messing and Daniel Zelman have agreed to amicably end their 10-year marriage," her rep says in the statement. "In keeping with their mutual wishes, Ms. Messing filed the divorce papers earlier yesterday in Los Angeles. They remain best of friends and fully committed to raising their son together."

Debra Messing has filed to officially end her marriage to Daniel Zelman, six months after the pair announced their separation.
According to court documents filed Tuesday, the actress seeks joint custody of their son, 8, and is asking for spousal and child support.
Messing, 43, began dating her Smash co-star Will Chase around the time of the split announcement in December, although the court papers timed the separation back in February 2010.
Messing, who married Zelman in September 2000, recently said she's "okay with people being unhappy with me."

When news broke in December that Debra Messing and her husband of 10 years, Daniel Zelman, were divorcing – and then that Messing was dating her Smash costar, Will Chase, who is also going through a divorce – the actress said she was prepared for the backlash.
But she's learned to not let it get the better of her.
"I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible – embracing saying 'no' and being okay with people being unhappy with me," Messing, 43, tells Ladies Home Journal.

Smash has finally arrived!
After months of heavy promotion (and access to the pilot on iTunes), NBC's buzzed-about musical drama that goes behind the scenes of a Broadway show premiered Monday night – but will it be a hit? Caution: Spoilers ahead.
In the first episode, we meet the players – struggling actors, conflicted writers, an egotistical director and an ambitious producer – involved in launching a musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe.
"Everyone's doing her now," says Debra Messing's character, writer Julia Houston. "There's a Marilyn movie, diaries. You know what there's an app for the iPad now? You blow on it and the skirt goes up."
