The 56-year-old talk show host filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter in April 2019 after he fathered a child with another woman but she admitted his infidelity didn't come as a shock because he'd slept with other people throughout their 21-year marriage.
Speaking on SiriusXM's 'The Jess Cagle Show', she said: “We were married for almost 22 years. We were together for 25 years.
"I don’t regret the day of meeting him. I don’t regret putting up with him for all 25 years — and that has nothing to do with him having this baby or him having this side girl for almost 15 years of our marriage. I’ve known about her almost since the beginning. I’ve known that Kevin is a serial cheat.”
Bribing doctors and other ridiculed celebrity responses to coronavirus
As the world weathers this crisis together and people are reaching out to comfort, inform, and support each other, many celebrities are failing to strike an empathic chord with their followers. Plenty of publications are even claiming that their responses to coronavirus will be the demise of celebrity culture, as many of the rich and famous are making it difficult to idolize them. In a new report from Variety, Hollywood’s rich and famous are apparently doing whatever they can to get their hands on the COVID-19 vaccine, with some offering bribes of as much as US$10,000, and others even transiently entering healthcare professions to jump the line! Dr. Robert Huizenga told the magazine that notable members of the entertainment industry are treating the scramble for the vaccine as a “fight for their lives,” particularly amid the nation's slow rollout. Still, you'd think with all that time and money they could comfortably afford to stay out of harm's way until it's their turn, right? And that's just the tip of the iceberg. From trying to share "relatable" quarantine content from the comfort of their mansions, to making ridiculous claims about the virus, click through to see the most widely slammed things celebrities have said or done regarding this pandemic.

Marriage isn’t easy

Kim Kardashian West and Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian West and Kris Humphries’ marriage and subsequent divorce was easily one of the most talked about celebrity relationships at the time. In May 2011, the reality star said yes when the NBA player got down on one knee. The couple got married in August the same year and by Halloween, they were filing for divorce. Everyone thought their 72-day marriage was a publicity stunt especially since every detail leading up to it was televised on ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians.’ However, Kim set the record straight in an official blog post: “First and foremost, I married for love. I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show.” The pair went through a lengthy divorce battle, which lasted longer than their marriage that was finally dissolved on June 3, 2013.
Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly
Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly co-starred in ‘Dumb & Dumber,’ and dated on and off for years before tying the knot in 1996. The marriage did not last long, and the couple were off again 10 months later, citing the classic “irreconcilable difference.” Years later, the actress spoke about their relationship on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, she said: “When we got divorced, I had a really hard time because no one ever had the story right. I always felt that everyone knew my personal business, and not to mention the fact that I was going through a heartbreak."
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito
Before Bradley Cooper was a household name, the actor was a plus-one for his girlfriend Jennifer Esposito. The pair tied the knot in December 2006 and filed for divorce in May 2007. Speaking to Howard Stern, Cooper spoke about the relationship, saying: "It was just something that happened. The good thing is, we both realised it. Sometimes you just realise it."
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
After meeting on the set of ‘The Last Song’ Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus experienced real-life sparks. The two dated on-and-off-again for over two years before announcing their engagement in May 2012 but had called it off by September 2013. However, seemingly out of nowhere, the couple were back together in March 2016 and became re-engaged that October. On December 23, 2018, Cyrus and Hemsworth tied the knot in a private ceremony in their Nashville home. On August 10, 2019, the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer announced their separation, and 11 days later Hemsworth filed for divorce.

Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd
Jennifer Lopez met Cris Judd back in 2001 when he was as a back-up dancer in her ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’ music video. The two had a whirlwind romance and got engaged and married within the year. But by June 2002, they had called it quits.
Elizabeth Taylor and Nicky Hilton
Besides being one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema, Elizabeth Taylor was the queen of short marriages. The late actress got married eight times to seven different men and mastered the art of throwing a spectacular wedding. Her first and shortest marriage was to Nicky Hilton, the couple tied the knot when she was 18 and called it quits before she even turned 19. In her 1965 memoir, Taylor wrote that the marriage was practically over by the time they returned from their two-week honeymoon in Europe. But by the time the divorce was final, the pair had been together for 205 days. “The honeymoon in Europe lasted two weeks,” she wrote. “I should say the marriage lasted for two weeks. Then came, yours sincerely, disillusionment rude and brutal.”
Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley
To this day, Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley’s three-month marriage remains a mystery to the general public. The Oscar winning actor and the only child of Elvis Presley said “I do” on the 25th anniversary of her father’s death in 2002, but called it quits shortly after. In a statement released by Cage, he said: “I did not talk about the marriage and I am not going to talk about the divorce.” Presley later responded with: “I'm sad about this, but we shouldn't have been married in the first place."
Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen
Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen’s marriage was the kind that looked good on the red carpet, with both of their careers looking bright. But in real-life, things were less than perfect. The couple got married on October 25, 2009 and broke up eight months later. Moss made the split official when she filed for divorce in September 2010. In a 2014 interview with New York magazine, Elisabeth revealed that the marriage was “extremely traumatic” and said: “One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, 'He's so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me that sums it up.” Miaow!
She continued: "The first time I found out was while I was pregnant with our son [Kevin Hunter Jr.] on bedrest. During that time I gave birth to him, he was in the delivery room. … He’s passing out cigars and [saying], you know, ‘My wife and I and little Kev.’”
Wendy "plotted to divorce" Kevin and is happy with how things have worked out for her.
She said: “I sacrificed a lot of myself to come out successful on the other side, and it all worked."
The 'Ask Wendy' writer previously admitted Kevin's "major indiscretion" in fathering another child was the final straw for her.
She said: "Kevin had a major indiscretion that he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. An indiscretion that I will not deal with.
“I never thought that I would be in this position. I’m a very forgiving person, but there’s one thing that I could never be a part of, and that one thing happened.”
