Gina and Pat Neely of Food Network Divorcing After 20 Years — STATEMENT
Gina and Pat Neely are divorcing after 20 years of marriage.
The Food Network stars, best known for their series “Down Home With The Neelys,” announced their split on Friday.
The couple says in a statement:
“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.”
Gina, who filed for divorce, cited “irreconcilable differences” in her petition.
It is not yet known what will happen to their popular show, nor their other joint endeavors, which include a restaurant in New York City.
