“We were married for almost 22 years. We were together for 25 years,” she said while appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” in January 2021. “I don’t regret the day of meeting him. I don’t regret putting up with him for all 25 years.”

The New Jersey native then explained that she knew Kevin had a “side girl” of almost 15 years before they officially broke up, adding that she believed he used his money to “wine and dine” several women.

“The more successful I got and he got, and we believed in each other, the more of a jerk he became — he used his good credit to purchase property that he chose to wine and dine his extramarital affairs,” Wendy said. “This girl wasn’t the only one. She just happens to be the one who kept his baby.”
