John Tesh says the pressures of a dual career led to his separation from his wife of eight years.

Tesh, the co-host of "Entertainment Tonight," also is an accomplished jazz guitarist. "What was happening was, with the work I was doing, at both ends I wasn't saving enough time for a relationship and it just evaporated," he said. "It's a very tough thing to go through."But Tesh still has intentions of starting a family. "I want to settle down and have a big old five-bedroom house with kids," he said.

"I think I'm getting close to adulthood now as I approach 40, so maybe I might as well start acting like one."
