Ron White's Estranged Wife Says He Left Her For Broke

Margo reyMargo Rey, comedian Ron White’s estranged wife, is now struggling to pay her bills after their separation. White ended the relationship near the end of an extended stay at the opulent Montage resort in Beverly Hills while their home was undergoing renovations.

Rey was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and underwent a double mastectomy. The surgery and treatments were successful, but she suffered a recurrence this year; she is now in remission. Rey discovered that White had cut her off from the couple’s funds when she tried to pay for her visit to the oncologist. After returning home, Rey then discovered that White had changed all the locks and essentially left her homeless. While White is worth nearly $14 million, Rey is struggling and desperate for money as the couple enters into divorce proceedings.

What's the real reason for the separation? Maybe the wife cheated or done something horrible. But I still pity for her situation.

She's a very successful interior designer. They met at Jeff Goldberg's house.

No. The interior designer was Ron's previous wife, Barbara, and they met at Jeff Foxworthy's house. Margo Rey is a very successful singer, however.
