Tia and Cory’s split also comes about a year and a half after the mom-of-two revealed that she and her estranged husband “schedule sex” because of their busy lives. On March 4, 2021, Tia appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and confirmed to Wendy Williams that they make concrete plans for sexy time.
“I had said that long ago, and it kind of went viral. I saw some comments and some people are like, ‘Oh, there must be trouble in paradise because they have to schedule their sex lives. But, it’s actually the opposite,” she said, explaining, “It means that you actually care, right? It is marriage, it takes work, especially when you both have great careers, we’re grateful for that. We’re busy with two kids,” Tia continued. “If I’m being honest, things can get in the way, but we value our marriage and we want to make sure our marriage is hot and spicy.” But sadly, by autumn 2022, the couple’s long-lasting love had fizzled out.
