This story is wild
DJ Envy and his wife Gia Casey recently graced The Real‘s stage, and they talked about how they made it through an episode where they dealt with Envy’s infidelity. The Breakfast Club host and his wife held nothing back about their split and their eventual reunion, revealing that they even had some help from a highly unlikely life coach.
Casey let the hosts know that the most difficult period of their long marriage was a time when they nearly divorced over Envy cheating. “We went through a stage where Roshon cheated on me and a lot of people would say that that was to be expected because we’ve been together for so long,” she began. “But to be honest with you I didn’t expect it because he treated me amazingly. A lot of times when people go through things like cheating, the man treats the woman poorly at home.”
However, Casey says that their relationship never suffered while Envy was stepping out. “But our s*x life was good, he was always giving me compliments, very generous, everything was fantastic. He was a wonderful father. He never failed at that. I really didn’t see any red signs,” she continued.
She went on to say that she immediately knew that they were done for once Envy’s secret got out. “When I found out, for me I knew that it was going to be over,” she said. “That was my hard line. That’s the line you don’t cross.”
Casey told the hosts that Envy was spiraling as his home life fell apart. “It was so bad in our home and it was very bad for him professionally,” she said.
Envy backed up her version of events, saying that his work suffered greatly while he was trying to deal with the fallout from his cheating. “I was losing everything. I’m losing this person that really held me down, was there from the start didn’t care about money, didn’t care about anything, just cared for my well-being. And then my family. I felt like I let [them] down. I felt like a failure,” he said.
“It was a situation where I messed up and I messed up completely,” he added. “I couldn’t do my work. I was at work sleeping. It really affected me”.
He also said he got some help getting through it from an unlikely source. Though many regular readers will probably think this man needs to focus on himself a bit more, apparently Tyrese Gibson helped Envy work through this stage in his life.
“I apologized to my wife for an error. And I kind of embarrassed her, she had no clue. I was trying everything to get her listen,” he said, explaining that he apologized publicly before anyone outside of his family knew.

The public apology led Gibson, who did not know Envy prior to this episode, to reach out and help him get his wife back.
“He was like ‘God gave me a sign to help you.’ So I was like ‘Alright, Tyrese wants some spins or something,’” Envy joked. “But he said ‘I don’t care I really want to help.’ So he was like ‘This is what I want you to do.’”
Tyrese told Envy to book a private room at a specific restaurant and that he would surprise his wife by showing up to sing for them. After that, he said he would talk to the couple to try to help them find common ground.
“He was singing like he was singing at the Grammys,” Envy said of that night. “He sat down with for four hours with us and just had conversations and pretty much was my angel.”
Gibson continued to guide Envy throughout the whole process, occasionally talking on the phone with the DJ for hours. And it paid off, with the couple reuniting by the end of the whole episode.
