In the video above, she revealed that her relationship with Pat, who also is the co-star on "Down Home with the Neelys," started going downhill when the show debuted back in 2008.

“Pat is not a bad guy, he’s just not for me. I didn’t want to divorce my husband but it became necessary do it in order for me to be my best self.”

She then added,

“He felt like we didn’t spend enough time together. I felt like we did and we needed a little space.”

However, like everyone else, they also tried to get their relationship out of the rut and tried mending the relationship. Gina shared about the matter through a statement that said,

“We went to therapy 12 times. I tried to leave five times and I just didn’t have the strength but the fifth time I held on to that. It became necessary for me to find my path.”

The two are parents to two kids, daughters Shelbi and Spenser. Spenser is Gina's daughter from her previous marriage.

Now their lives have moved onto separate paths, but Gina shared that they are still good friends with each other.

“Business is business. Let’s be clear about that! Life happens, honey. What are you going to do? Cry in a bowl of milk? At the end of the day, Pat and I are real people. Life happens. I had dinner with Pat on Friday. We’re still good friends, but it just happened. You don’t stop living because bad things happen. You keep going!"

Glad to know that there is no malicious feeling between them.

And did you know, the success of her show along with her career as a TV personality and an author has helped her accumulate a net worth of $2 million?
