After being married for a decade with her ex-husband Robert Reich, their relationship eventually turned sour, as the latter filed for a divorce in 2019. According to  The Orlando Sentinel, Reich sued Sugalski for divorce through a petition on 10 July 2019, stating that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” The businessman also sought spousal support, claiming that his wife makes five times what he makes annually. A 24 July motion from Reich’s lawyers read, “Presently, the Husband makes approximately $96,000/year gross. Although the Wife has not yet filed her Financial Affidavit, the Husband estimates that she makes at least five times what he makes in income per year.”

Divorce

On 30 May 2009, Sugalski married businessman Robert Reich. They remained together for over a decade, despite multiple highs and lows during their married life. The two suffered their struggles to conceive, pain at a miscarriage, and the joy at the birth of triplets. However, their relationship eventually turned sour, and her now ex-husband filed for a divorce in 2019. 

In August 2019, The Orlando Sentinel published an article detailing the divorce of Sugalski and Reich. According to the news site, Reich sued Sugalski for divorce through a petition on 10 July 2019, stating that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”

The businessman also sought spousal support, claiming that his wife makes five times what he makes annually. A 24 July motion from Reich’s lawyers read, “Presently, the Husband makes approximately $96,000/year gross. Although the Wife has not yet filed her Financial Affidavit, the Husband estimates that she makes at least five times what he makes in income per year.”

Sugalski countered Reich’s petition by filing another petition, claiming that her husband “forged her signature in an attempt to move some of her retirement assets.” and “attempted to take out a loan in her name.” She also claimed that Reich had several debts, which should be Reich’s sole debt. Furthermore, the television personality asked the court to seal records associated with the divorce because of the public nature of her work, stating that the leakage of court proceedings would tarnish her good name publicly.

Sugalski and Reich continued to live in the same home during their ongoing legal battle. However, Reich’s motion revealed that Sugalski removed most of his photographs from the wall and didn’t disclose the whereabouts of the items. It further read that Sugalski’s behaviors bring about unnecessary stress for the family and jeopardize the emotional well-being of the children.

Shortly after their legal battle, Sugalski was spotted without a wedding ring on her finger, which confirmed her divorce.

Children

Sugalski is the mother of her six children, including triplets. She gave birth to her first three children — Chase, Maxwell, and Spencer — with sportscaster Craig Minervini. The two divorced in 2005. Later, in 2013, she welcomed her triplets — two boys and a girl — with Reich.
