Connie Sellecca is John Teshâs 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 âshack upâ loosely. Thatâs because Tesh confirmed the old-school relationship, but stopped short of any real details.
His revelation comes just days before a nasty âtell-allâ book called âOprahâ is set to hit shelves. Iâm guessing he wanted to be the one to break the news to the public rather than this Kitty Kelley lady.
So things didnât 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 âOâ and things apparently worked out.
Connie Sellecca and John Tesh married in the summer of 1992, and have been going strong ever sinceâbut who is she? Well, for starters the Bronx, NY native is an actress who has appeared in a heavy helping of televisions gigsâmost 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 âDuggarsâ style courtship ritual prior to actually living together. They apparently dated seriously for 2 years but did not âknowâ each other in a biblical sense until after their wedding day. No report on whether or not they think dancing is evilâŚbut Iâll 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 hubbyâs admission that he used to have a thing for Oprah?
