Wayne Brady Is Isolating with Ex Wife Mandie Taketa & Her Boyfriend during Pandemic

Wayne Brady explained his unconventional co-parenting arrangement with his ex-wife and revealed that they are self-isolating together with her boyfriend.

Self-isolation has caused a lot of challenges for couples who are co-parenting. In an interview with Access HollywoodWayne Brady revealed that he had established a very unconventional living arrangement with his ex-wife, Mandie Taketa.

Brady explained that co-parenting hadn't been much of a challenge for them. He said, "we have a different, and I think a very special relationship than a lot of people who co-parent."

The couple were married from 1999 to 2007, and have a 17-year-old daughter together named Maile. He argued that having to co-parent a teenager is a lot different for them than for other couples with younger children.

He admitted that the bond he has shared with his ex-wife over the years is so strong he believes they have "co-parented as best friends."

The former couple has remained close since their divorce and has always lived within minutes of each other homes. Something Brady said is like being neighbors.

He told Access Hollywood that his backyard is a large area of land which she shares with Mandie, and is  the reason why he considers their quarantining situation to be "a little different."

Revealing just how different their shared living arrangements is, he said there are all quarantining between both their homes, he added:

"So Mandie, her boyfriend Jason, my daughter Maile, we are a family. We are like this nuclear family."

Their nuclear family doesn't seem to be butting heads and have been enjoying the time spent together in isolation, he explained:

"We've been doing TikToks, we've been playing board games…It's an amazing time for family because it's kind of like a time-out."

When asked how much toilet paper he had bought to accommodate his large household, Brady admitted that he wasn't quite sure of the exact number and had a good reason for not knowing.

He explained that growing up; his mother used to stockpile a lot of their groceries. So he's adopted the same trait and has a closet filled with bulk items he bought months before the coronavirus outbreak.
