Once bitten, twice shy. Former Miss USA Ali Landry
married Mario Lopez
in 2004. Within a matter of weeks she discovered that her new husband had cheated and she filed
for an annulment.
Best known as the 'Doritos Girl' from her 1998 Super Bowl commercial, she has moved on and sat down yesterday with talk show host Wendy Williams to talk about her first marriage fiasco and how she has done it differently the second time around.
She revealed, "I had heard something right before the wedding. He swore that it was not true, but I had that feeling in my gut. All of my family was flying in – it was a destination wedding – and I really should have put the brakes on it at that point, but I was afraid."
A friend of Ali's suggested that she tap Mario's phone. At first she was hesitant but went ahead with it. "I was like, 'I don't want to tap a phone! I can't believe I'm doing this.'"
Right after the honeymoon she started listening to calls from women, "I confronted him and he still – to this day – denied it and never apologized. It was horrible. I was so side-swiped by the whole thing ... I never really got angry."
"I discovered a lot about myself and I'm a better woman because of it. I met my current husband at a theology class in L.A. – who knew? He was the person I was meant to be with. Because of the situation I was in before, I was just treading lightly, and did not want to make any mistakes in this relationship. We abstained from having sex until we got married."
She wed Alejandro Monteverde in 2006. They have two children together, Estela, 4, and Marcelo, 5 months.
