Kathy’s mother Kathleen Mary and father Larry Avanzino got divorced, before she later married Kenneth E. Richards.

She said that they caused her to “break down in tears” over watching their lives “fall apart”, as reported by Daily Dish.
The sisters previously fell out and weren’t on speaking terms, but have since patched things up. They now seem to be closer than ever.
