Shania Twain’s one of the most recognized country artists of our time so it’s only natural her life has been under a media microscope, which included her heartbreaking split from ex-husband Mutt Lange. And while on the TV show “Watch What Happens Live” this week, the superstar opened up a bit about what that was like.
To recap back in 2008, Mutt, who had been married to Shania for 15 years at the time, went out and did the biggest no no you can do. He straight up had an affair with one of the singer’s best friends, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. Pretty bad, right? Well needless to say that led to a pretty gnarly divorce. But no fear….Twain ended up marrying Thiebaud’s ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud. The pair have been married since 2011.
Fast forward to 2015 and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen asked Twain what she would say if she ran into her former best friend now, the singer didn’t hesitate.
“I wish I’d never met you,” she said confidently, “That would be it. You panic in those situations, you don’t know what to do. I think there are some people in life you would say, ‘I would have been better off not ever knowing that person.’”
But don’t think Shania is sitting at home, diving into bon bond and having cry fests over it still. She said, “I learned a lot from that. I don’t regret it.”
Thatta’ girl Shania.
