Nancy O’Dell and husband Keith Zubulevich separated in September, Gossip Cop confirms. The couple wed in 2005, and have a 9-year-old daughter named Ashby.
Gossip Cop is told the split is “amicable,” and they’re dedicated to their kids. Zubulevich has two older sons from a previous marriage. This was the “Entertainment Tonight” show anchor’s second marriage. She was previously wed to Richard O’Dell. The separation has “nothing to do” with the release of the taped conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush in which the GOP presidential candidate bragged about trying to have sex with O’Dell, who used to host “Access Hollywood.”
As Gossip Cop reported, during a shoot months after O’Dell married Zubulevich, Trump told her then-cohost Bush in a leaked video, “I moved on [O’Dell] and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f*ck her. She was married… I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there.” Following the release of the offending recording, O’Dell said in a statement, “Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all… It was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling.”
A source close to O’Dell called the separation “very sad.” “It’s been a hell of a few days” for the “Entertainment Tonight” host, adds our insider.
