In today’s TV Guide Canada, Suds Report, Nelson Branco reports some sad news. Long time real-life hubby and wife, ATWT’s Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara) and soap vet, Mark Pinter are calling it quits.  Zenk Pinter  told Suds, “ I filed for dissolution of marriage of her husband for 23 years on the grounds of infidelity and abandonment.”

    I am so saddened by the dissolution of Colleen & Mark’s marriage. Colleen has been through so much with her cancer ordeal and now this horrible shock. I love you Colleen… you are one brave lady and God be with you through the days ahead. I love ATWT and I am going to miss it terribly when it goes off the air. You are the most beautiful actress I have ever seen on any soap. I pray all good things for you. Cheryl

    I have enjoyed watching Colleen on ATWT for years. She is beautiful. I remember when Mark was on the show, I could tell when they fell in love then married. I am so sad to hear this news about the trouble. I pray that they can possibly work through, and if not hope that they have peace and happiness.

    “Long-running”?? Do you even know who the mother of Mark’s children is? It isn’t Colleen. This is not a “long-running” person.

    I miss ATWT verry much and I personally think that Collen Zenk Pinter was best! And I hope that she can get on another soap opera or t.v show!

    I am shocked and saddened about the news of your break up. I have met both of you several times and never thought that I would read about the dissolution of your marriage. You are fortunate to have caught and treated your oral cancer. You are a very strong woman.

    Don’t feel sorry for Colleen. She will step on you to get to the top. Beware, she has ALMOST everyone fooled. Adulter and wicked person. Don’t be fooled. She is not a victim, just another role she has assumed.
