After the announcement of their initial split, Seymour opened up about their separation during an interview on “The View”. “Obviously, it’s really devastating,” she said. “It did happen a while ago. It was sort of kept quiet.”

We respect one another,” she said. “We’ve been together 22 years, and we will be together the rest of our lives raising our children and doing things like the Open Hearts Foundation.”
