Oooooooook…….I will be honest that this here divorce news did not shock or surprise me……… because I had no clue who this couple was until now. Yet, it is some interesting tea to be spilled. They are known as Pat and Gina Neely and for the past eleven years they have been sharing their love for cooking and each other (so it seemed) on the cooking channel. (No wonder why I never heard of this couple….not really a cooking show watching type of girl). According to what I read the couple has been saving face on problems that they have had even before the show started in 2008. To make a long story short, it sounds as if egos and competition took a toll on this marriage and after 20 years the Neely’s are letting it burn. Peep Their statement below:“Today we announce that we are ending our marriage of 20 years for irreconcilable differences. This was a tough decision, but we believe it is the best decision for us. As parents of two beautiful adult daughters that we love dearly, we will continue to be involved in each other’s lives as parents and friends. Together we have built a strong brand as The Neely’s . Moving forward our focus will be on our individual brands and we are optimistic about our respective futures. We ask for your prayers as we go through this transition and honor our request for privacy at this time. “
Welp, another day, another reality show couple bites the dust. It definitely sounds like thanks to the marketing brand they built together it’s going to be one messy, messy, messy, divorce in the making. Hopefully things will work out. I will say this…..if these celebrities don’t want to be apart of the “curse”, then stop signing your names on the dotted line knowing y’all a hot a** mess.
