Affair between Kristy and her skating partner broke up his marriage with his pregnant wife

Skating with the Stars and original Buffy the Vampire Slayer Kristy Swanson had an affair with her married skating partner Lloyd Eisler, one that eventually led to the end of his marriage. Oh, and his wife was eight months pregnant.

While the publicist for the two reality show participants “says the pair started dating after Lloyd and Marci seperated,” according to Star Magazine, Lloyd’s wife “Marcie says she discovered an affair when she was eight-months-pregnant with Lloyd’s child!” She told the magazine, “I was shocked, upset and betrayed. I should have trusted my instincts.”

In addition, “Lloyd made an attempt to reconcile with her after they separated, by calling her and telling her that he still loved her,” the magazine reports. A friend of Marcie’s “says he even offered to give her a Tiffany ring!” Now, though, Lloyd’s wife “is moving out of the house she and Lloyd lived in, in Bath, Ontario, Canada, and moving to nearby Kingston, Ontario.” The affair began last fall, but Marcie says that Lloyd and Kristy are still together.
