Ali Landry’s ex-husband, Mario Lopez, has made a lot of private details public with the release of his new memoir, Just Between Us. Ever wonder why his marriage to the model only lasted for two weeks in 2004? Then Yahoo Celebrity has clipped some quotes to answer your questions. Perhaps the most important of all of them is what happened at his bachelor party:
“It was a five-day nonstop party. Suffice it to say, my good time was a little too good, because I got inebriated and a little too friendly with a young lady on spring break at one of the stops in some university party town. What was I thinking? Once I took responsibility for my feelings, acknowledging how I had so mishandled my decisions, lightning hit me with the truth: I wasn’t in love. The thoughts came streaming in, but it was too late. My misgivings reared their ugly heads and I knew I should have broken things off with her before I strayed. Everything was suddenly crystal clear. But like an idiot I did what you do when you find out you’ve dug a hole for yourself: I kept digging. I formally walked down the aisle and said, ‘I do.’ But in my heart and soul, I was screaming, ‘I do not! I can’t! What am I doing?'”

But what is Landry’s side of the story? Back in 2012, she was interviewed by Wendy Williams about the matter. She tapped her phone and found evidence of cheating. “I was so side-swiped by the whole thing,” she said, “I never really got angry.I discovered a lot about myself and I’m a better woman because of it.”

To be fair to Lopez, he’s looking to come clean in his new memoir. “I know I made my share of mistakes, and sometimes big ones. I had to learn all my lessons the hard way,” he told People. His laundry list of mistakes includes using sex as a drug, losing his virginity at 12, and almost becoming a father in his teens.
