In a joint statement the couple said the following:
Today we announce that we are ending our marriage of 20 years for irreconcilable differences. This was a tough decision, but we believe it is the best decision for us. As parents of two beautiful adult daughters that we love dearly, we will continue to be involved in each other’s lives as parents and friends. Together we have built a strong brand as The Neely’s. Moving forward our focus will be on our individual brands and we are optimistic about our respective futures. We ask for your prayers as we go through this transition and honor our request for privacy at this time.
The Neelys’ brands include not only the TV show but also a recently released book, as well as a BBQ restaurant in New York City.
Aww sad news, but they will be okay!
