Neely Divorce: Memphis Celeb Chefs Call It Quits After 20 Years

By    |   Monday, 29 Sep 2014 05:34 PM

Memphis celebrity chefs Gina and Pat Neely are filing for divorce, ending almost 20 years of marriage and a partnership that spawned a restaurant, TV stardom, and cookbooks.

The two were on “Down Home with the Neelys” on Food Network, and recently released a book, “Back Home with the Neelys: Comfort Food from our Southern Kitchen to Yours.”

In a joint statement published by WJHL, the Neelys said, “Today we announce that we are ending our marriage of 20 years for irreconcilable differences. This was a tough decision, but we believe it is the best decision for us. As parents of two beautiful adult daughters that we love dearly, we will continue to be involved in each other's lives as parents and friends.”

Although not specifically addressing how their business will be handled, the release also said, "Together we have built a strong brand as The Neelys. Moving forward our focus will be on our individual brands and we are optimistic about our respective futures."

In divorce documents obtained by TMZ, the Neelys said they have been living apart for two years, something it seems most fans didn’t know.





The couple’s children are both over age 18.
