In a Tuesday (May 3) visit to “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Shania Twain opened up about the betrayal she felt when she learned that Mutt Lange — now her ex-husband — was having an affair with her best friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.
“I lost my sense of trust, honesty and compassion,” said Twain. “I crashed down and became what I consider an emotional mess. I’ve never been so miserable in my whole life. I just wanted to go to bed and never get up.”
In an unforeseeable twist, Twain actually ended up marrying Thiebaud’s ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud.
“It was twisted,” she admitted, “but so beautifully twisted. I really can’t complain. I’ve got a beautiful man.”
Twain details the dissolution of her marriage in her new book, “From This Moment On.” She also details sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather.
Twain’s new show “Why Not?”, it should be noted, debuts on the Oprah Winfrey Network on Sunday at 11 p.m. ET. The OWN synopsis: “Follow Shania as she heals, shares and rediscovers her voice.”
