Dan Gasby has been the poster child of love and support for his wife, famed Restauranter B. Smith‘s Alzheimer’s diagnosis since 2013. But in a new interview with the Washington Post, opinions of the devoted husband have quickly shifted. Meet Alex Lerner, Gasby’s…girlfriend.
Yep. Smith’s husband and business partner for over two decades has a girlfriend and he doesn’t care what you think about it.
Lerner even has a room in the New York home he shares with Smith. “If ‘This Is Us’ and ‘Modern Family’ came together, it would be us,” he said. And while Gasby says he’s been honest about his relationship with Lerner, he’s not quite sure if it’s registered with his wife.
And for the critics, whom he says are racists, “I have been married to a black woman for 26 years. I have a PhD in black love.”
