The Emmy-winning TV star tipped off viewers on Twitter about her big reveal hours before going on-air, revealing that she had an update to share at the end of late-night show Gutfeld!
Banderas didn't hold her feelings back about the romantic holiday, declaring, "F--- Valentine's Day," before disclosing the change in her relationship status.
"Yeah, it's stupid. Even when I was married I didn't get s--- for Valentine's Day … well, I'm getting a divorce, I'm going to go ahead and say it right here for the very first time," the longtime Fox veteran said of her estranged spouse who she married in 2009.
As the others revealed their shock, Banderes said she had no regrets about moving forward on this new chapter of her life. "Congratulations are in order, if you know me, you'd clap … That was breaking news, right there," she continued.
While the group chatted about February 14 being right around the corner, Banderas slammed Valentine's as a "Hallmark holiday," calling it "absolutely ridiculous."
"By the way, guys, if you are going to get your girl flowers, don't bring them to her in a box, that's the only advice I've got for you," she suggested. "If you come to me in a box, you better be dead."
