The X Factor has officially lost a fan! Ali Landry, former Miss USA, and ex-wife of the show’s co-host, Mario Lopez said she used to watch the show before he became a part of it. Keep reading for more details.
According to US Weekly, Landry said she was a big fan of the show and enjoyed watching it until Lopez became one of the co-hosts. After seeing him on the show, Landry said, “I actually stopped watching,” she told Ryan Seacrest in a recent radio interview. “I liked the show before he came on.”
Landry and Lopez, both 39, dated for six years and later married in 2004 but their fairytale marriage came to an abrupt end after only two weeks. What happened? Landry found out Lopez had cheated and many times at that. According to Wet Paint, Landry said she caught Lopez cheating when a friend tapped his phone. However, “He still denied it.” Landry said. “He never apologized. It was horrible.”
“A marriage is a very, very big deal, so it wasn’t just like, ‘Oh yeah, get married, get divorced,’” she told Access Hollywood. “For me, my parents are still together. The sacrament of marriage for me is very, very important.”
“So I never even knew anyone who did that to someone else – didn’t even know that was possible, like [from] someone you trusted and loved. I was blindsided. The rug was pulled out from underneath me.”
Landry went on to marry director Alejandro Monteverde and they have two children together. However, the scars left from her relationship with Lopez still seem sensitive.
Tell us what you think. Is Landry overreacting by not watching the show just because her ex is one of the hosts? Would you have done the same thing? Post a comment and let us know.
