Katie Price has announced she is taking a break from Loose Women to work on her marriage to Kieran Hayler.
The panellist is set to take a month off the ITV daytime show to resolve some outstanding issues from a previous affair her husband had with her best friends but assures fans she will be back.
Katie has had to relive the betrayal between Kieran and best mate Jane Pountney while promoting her new autobiography ‘Reborn’ which has caused the former glamour model to re-open a lot of old wounds.
During Loose Women on Friday (07.10.16), she said: “I thought I was over it [the affair] but obviously it’s opened it up again, having to talk about it. I thought I dealt with it but when I look back I was concentrating on the babies and and I was numb from when it all happened.
“I was contracted [to do the book tour] so obviously you have to do certain things, so whenever I was asked questions I was trying to bat them off with the good stuff, I’m quite good at putting up a defence but I just couldn’t do it with this – I was getting asked questions like, ‘The moment you saw them on the beach, what was it like?’ It’s something that I just don’t want to relive again, it’s something that’s been awful, torture. I haven’t got any more tears to cry, my heart is shattered, it’s broken, it’s nowhere near healed. I haven’t got no tears.”
Admitting her revelations about her own feelings have been difficult for Kieran to process, she added: “It’s also been hard for Kieran, he’s changed in two-and-a-half years, he’s had his therapy, and then we’ve got the book out again and he’s having to relive what kind of person he was. And I’m having to relive it with a fresh mind, I haven’t just had a baby and think, ‘Oh my god, this is really what he did to me.’ ”
Katie also insisted the professional help is more for reassurance, she explained: “We are [having therapy together], not because there’s anything with our relationship … we are going to see a therapist to reassure us both that we’re fine, we’ve been through all of that so we can get through this. Throughout my life I’ve never sat down and spoke about it, I’m always, ‘It’s fine…'”
