‘Big Bang Theory’ star Mayim Bialik on why she had Thanksgiving with her ex and his new lady

Mayim Bialik has a bona fide modern family.

The “Big Bang Theory star used her blog, Grok Nation, to give fans a detailed look at her Thanksgiving meal last week, which she celebrated with her ex-husband Michael Stone, their two sons, his current girlfriend, plus the unnamed girlfriend’s children and her ex-husband. Bialik’s mom also attended the blended family celebration.

The 42-year-old sitcom star also used the opportunity to reveal she’s recently single. (She’s previously referenced an unnamed boyfriend in her social media and blog posts.)

“I would be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous,” the actress wrote in a blog post shared on her website on Tuesday. “I am single again and it was painful to be ‘alone.’ I was meeting the girlfriend’s ex for the first time at a sit-down dinner … what if it was uncomfortable?”

But she said she went through with the seemingly awkward meal, which Stone volunteered to host, for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, she felt it was good for their two sons for the family to celebrate the holiday together.

“Doing separate holidays seems excessive and sad,” she explained. “We are a family even though we are divorced. I want to witness them eating the foods we make them and it feels good to sit at a table with them and their father.”

She said she also attended the meal because it’s important for her to embrace change.

“This year was all about change. Being single is a big change … When things change, it’s important to keep some things the same,” she wrote.

She explained in her post that her friend Elsa also attended the big dinner, and it all went off without a hitch, despite her reservations.
