For the past one year, speculations had hovered thickly in the air that they marriage of celebrity presenter of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Frank Edoho, and his broadcaster wife, Catherine, was going through tempestuous times. On several occassions, they vehemently denied the tales which however refused to die down. Those who know insisted it was just a matter of time before their defence would crumble. Now, it has. Early Wednesday morning, Frank sensationally revealed on Twitter that the speculations were indeed true.
“Hey people, just want you to know that I would never do anything to hurt my family. But sadly, I am separated from my wife and it’s irreconcilable. We’ve been separated for over a year now and I want to say Kathy is a great mum and a good person. But it wasn’t working. When I talk about what really went down, jaws will drop and then you will learn that if you want to get hitched, make sure it’s your soul mate please.” He states emphatically that there is no reconciliation for him because “I was trying to give it a last-ditch effort by recapping good times but to no avail….No more ball-and-chain for me. I’ve had it. I’m out.”
Reacting to insinuations that he is a wife beater, he tweets, “Wife-beater story was in 2007 and I see hurtful comments about me now. You’ve watched me for eight years. Do I look like I treat women with no respect?”
Predictably, twit-ville was aglow with comments for and against but the man in the middle of the drama maintains that it is all over for the union consummated about ten years ago and which has produced three kids. Sources say the estranged couple is already seeking a divorce, thus bringing to an unsavoury end the union of one of the most admired couples in Nigerian showbiz.
