She stays out of the spotlight
Though she is married to a celebrity, she has managed to stay out of the spotlight. The couple share four children together: Anthony, Lucky, Sonny, and Mickey.
When she was pregnant with their first child, her husband was at the peak of his career.
His morning show, KKFN 950 AM, “The Fan,” immediately took off as soon as he started hosting, and he became the highest-rated host in the station’s history.
He was hosting the market’s top-rated morning show when Kim was pregnant with their first child. He left the show to take care of Kim.
Gambling addiction and arrest
Craig was arrested for the first time on the 6th of September, 2017, after he was accused of an alleged Ponzi scheme.
He was released on a $500,000 personal recognizance bond.
He retired from The Boomer and the Cartoon Show, which he co-hosted with former quarterback Boomer Esiason for a decade, a week after his suspension from the show.
Talking about the impact his arrest had on him and his family, he said at the time, it was devastating that it threw his life upside down.
“I have to talk to my kids about the things that they might not understand, but I know they are reading,” he said.
The following year, in November, he was convicted of fraud in Manhattan federal court.
He was sentenced to three and a half years in prison and was released from a prison halfway house in June 2020.
He was released from federal custody in June 2021 after completing a 500-hour cognitive behavioral theory that made him eligible for the release.
Her husband had a tough battle with gambling addiction
Her husband Craig had a tough battle with gambling addiction, which took him a long time to get to accept it.
While opening up about his battle with addiction, he shared how it took him to prison. He said having to battle with addiction was a weird journey.
It wasn't overnight, but it came in stages. He went to rehab in Arizona for gambling addiction, but he went there for the wrong reasons.
He went there to get the people off his back. He went there thinking it would look good because he had a criminal trial pending, he admitted.
He never thought he had a problem, so his only motive to go to the rehab was to get off his case about gambling, but what happened there was it became clear to him that there was nothing special about him that he used to think of himself when he talked with other 12 gamblers in the rehab.
Until then, he used to think there were no gamblers like him. But still, upon returning home from rehab, he gambled.
He gambled twice because he had an ego and wanted to prove wrong.
He recalled going to the casino with his friend at 1 o'clock in the morning, although he was aware that he had been to jail for it.
He had no income coming at the moment, and he had four kids and a wife and had to pay bills and stuff, so he went to the casino thinking that he was the world's best blackjack player.
He went on winning so much that day that it was the first time that the casino asked him to leave.
Three days later, he went to another casino to test himself, taking with him 50 grand, but he didn't take all.
He kept 20 grand in the car because he had in his mind that if he lost 30 grand, he was not going to take 20.
But he ended up losing all the 50 grand, proving to himself that he couldn't do it, which was an eye-opening experience for him.
That was the day when he finally said to himself that he had to stop. He had not gambled since that day, he said.
It was sheer lunacy to make an effort to make more money to live off and support his family through gambling because he was going to have nights when he would lose, he said.
He was risking money, which he couldn't afford to lose.
Her exact net worth is currently under review. As of now, we have the net worth of her husband.
Her husband has a net worth of -$4 million. Before he had a downfall, he was earning $1 million per year.
