Connie Sellecca is John Tesh’s wife of 18 years. The actress is in the news this week after it was revealed that her much more famous hubby used to shack up with Oprah.

Well, I suppose I use the term ‘shack up’ loosely. That’s because Tesh confirmed the old-school relationship, but stopped short of any real details.

His revelation comes just days before a nasty ‘tell-all’ book called ‘Oprah’ is set to hit shelves. I’m guessing he wanted to be the one to break the news to the public rather than this Kitty Kelley lady.

So things didn’t work out in the long term between him and Oprah, but it sounds like he has a good thing going now. A woman named Connie Sellecca came along about twenty years or so after he messed around with the big ‘O’ and things apparently worked out.

Connie Sellecca and John Tesh married in the summer of 1992, and have been going strong ever since—but who is she? Well, for starters the Bronx, NY native is an actress who has appeared in a heavy helping of televisions gigs—most of which were in the 80s and 90s. She also reportedly worked as a lingerie and fashion model in her younger days.

What I find interesting is that she and Tesh had a ‘Duggars’ style courtship ritual prior to actually living together. They apparently dated seriously for 2 years but did not “know” each other in a biblical sense until after their wedding day. No report on whether or not they think dancing is evil…but I’ll look into it.

Evidently they did get down to business at some point because they have a 16 year old daughter together named Prima Sellecchia Tesh.

I wonder how Connie Sellecca feels about her hubby’s admission that he used to have a thing for Oprah?
