Word has it that behind the scenes of The Food Network’s Down Home With the Neely’s there was some real tension in the air.
Sources tell TMZ that the marriage between Pat and Gina Neely was heading towards divorce before they gained fame in 2009. They were not getting along when their show premiered and were stuck in the marriage once the show took off and ran for 11 seasons. The pressure of being famous weighed the marriage down even more, with both Gina and Pat accusing each other of wanting to be in the spotlight.

Finally having enough Gina filed for divorce last month, but even when it is all said and done, they can’t fully chuck the deuces to each other. They co-own a restaurant called Neely’s Barbecue Parlor, which is stationed in New York City. However the future of their individual television careers is uncertain.
