One of Nerd Hollywood's coolest couples has called it quits. Talking Dead and @midnight host Chris Hardwick and his girlfriend, Just Cos cosplay host Chloe Dykstra, made their split public on July 14.

It's sad news, but they handled it about as well as you can when you squeeze a note about your personal life into your usual timeline of music, TV, video game and joke tweets

Chris: "Hey gang sorry for the awkward tweet but @skydart & I have decided to part ways. It’s very fresh so please be respectful during this time."

Chloe, on the same day: "Hey guys. As you might have heard, @nerdist and I are no longer together. I am eating lots of pizza. It's all going to be fine."

Chloe, 25, had been tweeting about #PizzaAndPorn Night before, and kept on tweeting right after it, just like Chris, 42, followed up his breakup tweet with a note about producing Weird Al's new video.

At least they got the word out there on their own terms. Good for them. But also sad for them.

Chris previously dated Janet Varney (of TBS’ Dinner and a Movie) and The Real World: London's Jacinda Barrett. He’ll probably want some time to heal from this fresh breakup … but once he’s ready to move on, he could always look to one of his AMC buddies on The Walking Dead to play wingman. Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) must know a few people.

The Walking Dead Season 5 and the Talking Dead post-show discussion will premiere in October on AMC.
