1. Davidson and her Husband Reportedly Got Together When He Was Still Married
Vincent Van Patten and wife Davidson reportedly got together when Van Patten was still married. Radar Online reported:
Back in 2001, she was photographed going on a sexy weekend getaway to Vegas with her current husband, Vince Van Patten — but at the time, he was still married to another woman! Davidson’s husband of three years, Port Charles soap star Jon Lindstrom, filed for divorce from her in November 2000. Not long after, Davidson and tennis pro Van Patten were spotted embarking together on a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas — even though he was still married to Betsy Russell, the mother of his two children, Richard and Vince Jr., who were 7 and 5 at the time.
Russell reportedly filed for divorce from Van Patten once she heard about the affair. For more information on her husband Vincent Van Patten, check out the below link:
