Ex-Husband Anthony Cumia
Before he rose to stardom, Anthony worked as a blue collar worker in New York, where he would fix structural problems in homes. Although he was a high school dropout, Anthony had big dreams of becoming a radio presenter, and when Greg Opie Hughes made an announcement about an O.J Simpson song contest, Anthony saw this as an opportunity to fulfill his dream of hearing his own voice on the radio.
Anthony collaborated with his brother Joe in composing a song, and to their amazement, this song was among those at the top of the winning list. They were later invited to the show, and since Gregg had already been fascinated by the duo’s work, he wanted them to produce more. Anthony started producing comedy skits for him, and when he and Opie realized that they could do great things as partners, they decided to start their own show which they did in 1995. Opie and Anthony became a sensation in no time, however, although they were able to host one of the most listened-to shows, they were always getting into trouble while on-air. They launched their first show in March 1995 but it was canceled due to the prank they had made about the Boston Mayor being killed in a fatal accident.
Although they had a problematic nature, the two were able to get high ratings and would always get fresh chances. With each chance, they made their show grow by leaps and bounds, and by 2002 they had hit 17 stations countrywide after being signed by WNEW radio station in New York. By now, they had brought a new face and voice to their show – Jim Norton whose role was to control the duo’s excesses. However, this was not enough and the two had their show canceled and barred for a period of two years after they became involved in another controversial stunt.
After the two-year period, they went back on to radio, this time the duo was working on satellite radio. They were able to run their show uninterrupted for eight years between April 2006 and July 2014, however, then Cumia got into trouble once more when he got himself involved in a number of racist tweets, which led to him being fired from the show. His dream of being on the radio was not dimmed, as he then partnered with Artie Lange, and the two now have their own show entitled “The Artie and Anthony Show”.
