Gary, who asked us not to use his last name, is Trish’s ex-husband. They got married in 1995 when he says he was a rich man, but the marriage quickly turned sour.
He said, “The problem is I was way out of my league.”
INSIDE EDITION’s Megan Alexander asked him, “Here is a woman who is a grandma in a bikini but to you, you weren't surprised?”
“She does that all the time,” he replied.
Alexander had to ask, “How does she stay in such great shape?”
“What we used to do was we used to go out five miles-a-day, ten miles-a-day rollerblading,” he said.
Her ten-year-old grandson had spent the day swimming with her when police say she crashed her luxury BMW into a red Mustang that was stopped at a traffic light, which triggered a call from the BMW’s emergency response system to 911.
BMW emergency response said, “We had a customer who was involved in an accident. They’re saying it was a hit and run, no injuries.”
The police report says bikini granny had "a strong odor of alcohol" and failed every single sobriety test.
Alexander asked Gary, "In that video, it looks like she was flirting with the police officer."
Gary replied, "Oh constantly!"
She's due in court next month to answer to DUI charges. We reached out to Trish for a comment but were unsuccessful.
When she was led away, police asked her, "Ma'am, do you know why you're going to jail?"
She replied, "No."
Police asked, "You don't?"
"No,” she replied.
Gary responded to that by saying, “Normal Trish. That's what she does. That's who she is.”
