Another high-profile sports couple bites the dust! 2011 is definitely ending on a somber note for NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders and his soon to be ex-wife Pilar.

They have officially announced their separation and Deion provided the deets to TMZ, stating: “Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children. We arrived at this decision prayerfully and carefully in order to be able to pursue what is in both of our best personal interests.”

Sounds like the spilt is amicable and was a long time coming considering the rumors that have been swirling around the couple for years.

So after 12 years of marriage and three kids, Pilar Sanders is ready to re-claim her life and she is not wasting any time. She has already started building her Reality -TV resume by appearing on LOGO’s “The A-List”, and she plans to also focus on resurrecting her modeling career.

I guess the anthem – “Sistas Doing It For Themselves” applies here!
