Philip is busy She explained in the podcast that she separated from her husband, Mark Silverstein, in February of last year.
“It’s been a very long time now that Mark and I have broken up,” Posey explained. “Our kids know, our families know, our friends know, and we’ve really discussed how to go about it publicly.”
“The truth is, there’s a conventional idea of what anyone is supposed to do in the public eye when their relationship ends. It’s well proven, isn’t it? You’re making a statement, you’re bound by the remaining friends, ‘Please respect privacy and the privacy of our family at this time.'” But the truth is who made this rule? “

Because we all, at this point, have an audience-facing life. You don’t have to follow a traditional idea just because it’s been done before. I really believe in that.”

“It’s obviously not for everyone. There are a lot of complications and hardships within the arrangement sometimes for the two of us. The trick, obviously, is meant to not be something the kids can feel or see,” he added.
