“I remember being that wife, standing next to him while he denied all the [cocktail waitress assault] charges. He said he didn’t do those things because he was a happily married man. I stood there in front of the cameras trying to be supportive. I was thinking, ‘We are happily married, right?’”

“It seemed like she showed up everywhere we were all the time.”
