How is Richard’s Wife?
That’s a good question to ask and also the one someone doesn’t easily get an answer to. It’s a known fact that Richard is a married man. There’s no need to wonder about it as he has two grown up children who appear alongside him on the television and work as their father does.
His two sons, Ross and Evan, are also involved in the business, and they are continuing the legacy started by their grandfather Ron. Although they don’t feature on the show regularly, they appear sometimes and are more active behind the camera.
And again, talking about his wife, there’s very less to nothing to know about her. The reason for such anonymity could be the unwillingness of the woman to come before media. It could also be possible that he wants to keep her away from the spotlight to avoid unwanted attention.
