Ray Charles can see that David Duchovny is unavailable. Tea Leoni still has him by the balls, and heart. Madam Secretary finally came clean about her racy romps with her ex. She cannot pretend she’s not still madly in love with her baby’s daddy. PARADE must have an Emmy Awards inside connection. Tea bragged of her powerful new role. She exaggerated her togetherness with David, just to discourage starry eyed thots.
As Leoni enters into a new TV marriage, her real-life one has recently ended; she and David Duchovny, who have two children—Madelaine West, 15, and Kyd Miller, 12—divorced this summer after 17 years together, punctuated by two separations. But their relationship is better than amicable, says the actress, whose ring finger still bears the wedding-band tattoo she got in 2007 to match Duchovny’s. “Listen, David gave me the two greatest gifts on the planet; I don’t know how I could ever hate him,” she says. “We’ve always loved each other, and we adore these kids. … I’m not playing stupid—I understand feelings can get hurt and things can get icky. We’ve had our moments like that. But these kids are too important, and he feels the same way, I know it. He’s a good guy.”
For his part, Duchovny says, “Téa and I had a long time together; we’ll always be connected and there for each other.” He knew Madam Secretary was something special for her when she “committed to it right away. She usually takes a long time to consider things from all angles.”
Tea, and David have broken up hundreds of times. Do you think they’ll end up back together?
