In an exclusive statement to E! News, the 49-year-old revealed she has decided to end her marriage to 81-year-old Girardi.
“After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi,” the former cocktail waitress shared with E!. “This is not a step taken lightly or easily. I have great love and respect for Tom and our years and lives we built together.”
