Shortly after welcoming their second son in 2010, Tisha and Duane opened up to PEOPLE about how they had coped raising Xen, who they discovered at 18-months-old is autistic.

Tisha explained that after getting a grim diagnosis that their son would probably never be able to talk or tie his shoes, they were fearful and very emotional in the beginning.

However, the fight in them kicked in, and they supported Zen through 40 hours of weekly behavioral therapy sessions and helped him with their own unique methods of adapting to social environments.

At the time, Tisha admitted that Xen's health brought her closer together with Duane. However, after 20 years of marriage, the two filed for divorce in a very nasty public battle.

Despite the fallout of their marriage, Xen has continued to make progress and is headed to his dream college. It is reported, Tisha cried "happy tears" over her son's accomplishment because she never thought it would be possible.
