She added, “It is my absolute wish to proceed through this process with respect and with the privacy that both Tom and I deserved. I request others give us that privacy as well.”

Jayne has regularly shut down skeptics who question their 33-year age difference, even calling them out on the hit Slice series, “I’ve dealt with this forever: The younger woman that married the wealthier, older man. I mean, I’m tired of having to justify my 20-year marriage. Go get a 20-year marriage, then come f–king talk to me.”

“After a year of working in the restaurant, one night I decided to slip Tom my telephone number,” Jayne wrote in her 2018 memoir, Pretty Mess. “We were standing in front of the giant fireplace. ‘Did you hear I was single?’ I asked.”

According to the reality star, six months later they were engaged.

Jayne’s marriage to Girardi was her second. She was previously married to Thomas Zizzo, with whom she shares 26-year-old son Tommy Zizzo.
