Before their divorce in 1993, they had been married for six years. While the exact cause for their breakup was never revealed, Smith’s new love interest, who verified he was homosexual and in a happy relationship boyfriend in the late 2010s, did answer all of them unanimously.

However, they divorced in 1993 after 6 years of marriage, with no explanation for the split. Despite spending so much time together, the now-ex-couple never had children.

Donald has kept a low profile about her personal life after their divorce. At this time, there is no information on her relationship status or whereabouts. She is also not on any social media platforms.

In a 2016 interview with Huff Post, Shep confirmed a new relationship and, more importantly, gave an answer to the likely cause for his divorce from Virginia Donald. During a conversation, Smith acknowledged that he is gay while claiming that his late employer Roger Ailes was a homophobe. Smith’s interest in males may have contributed to the breakup of his marriage to Donald.

hep Smith publicly came out as gay in May 2017, confirming his relationship with Giovanni Graziano, a former Fox News producer. Since 2013, they’ve been dating.
