Jerry Seinfeld is being blamed for the divorce of a former couple featured on his reality show, The Marriage Ref. But the star is taking the claims lightly and, in fact, says he loves it!
Howie Kohlenberg is blaming Jerry and his NBC reality show, The Marriage Ref, for his divorce from his wife Christine after 14 years of marriage, the New York Post reports. Kohlenberg claims that after he and his now ex-wife appeared on the show, his wife became so obsessed with becoming a star that it ruined their marriage.
“Jerry, Mr. Billionaire, I blame,” he told the New York Post. “And his show.”
“The people on the show were pumping us up, saying, ‘You’re going to wake up and be stars. You’re going to be famous and make money.’ The producer kept saying her lips looked great, and all of a sudden she was getting a lot of Botox,” he explained.
“I’m not saying our marriage was perfect, but it put it in a whole new direction,” Kohlenberg added. “It was the nail in the coffin.”
So, how does Jerry feel about being called a homewrecker?
“I love it, I love, I love it!” he told the New York Daily News.
“When people get upset, I enjoy it,” Jerry said on Sunday of the claims. “That he’s having problems, and blaming me, it’s all…” Jerry said with a pause and then added, “anything that alleviates the withering, blithering boredom of existence I’m in favor of.”
