According to her, Pat Neely was the one with TV ambitions. She told the new site:
"I never aspired to be a chef... I thought it would be one show; we'd go back to our regular lives... "That was Pat's dream."
The 54-year-old cooking star added that with time, her spouse became more of a business partner than a husband, and this did not suit her. This eventually led up to their divorce in 2014.
