Ex-Husband Wayne Brady
After completing his education, Wayne moved to Los Angeles to develop his acting skills, and first appeared on national television as a part of “Kwik Witz” on which he was a recurring cast member. In the original British version of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” he was one of the first improvisational theatre performers alongside Clive Anderson, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles. After completing his run with the original show, an American version was made with Drew Carey as the host, and it led to Wayne’s rise to fame in the US. For his work in the show, he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program.
The result also saw him starring in his own “The Wayne Brady Show”, a daytime talk show which lasted for two seasons. The show won him four Daytime Emmy Awards, and he then made a guest appearance in “The Drew Carey Show”. He also did a lot of theatrical work, including on a production of “Chicago”. He had numerous film and television opportunities as well, including “Chappelle’s Show”, “The Weekenders”, and “How I Met Your Mother”.

Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Lasso married Wayne Brady in 1993, and they have a child together. However, they only stayed together for two years before divorcing; according to several sources, their divorce stemmed from the fact that Wayne’s career didn’t give him enough time to spend with his family as he usually travelled for work. This along with Brady suffering from clinical depression eventually led to the downfall of their marriage.
Lasso also suffered from depression after the divorce, and decided that it would be best to return to Colombia. Several sources state that she started pursuing her singing career once more after she returned home, however, no more details have been shared about her since then. One of the reasons there is very little information about her is due to the lack of any social media presence. She does not have accounts on any of the major social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The same cannot be said about her former husband, who is very active online to promote his work.
