A source said, "Wendy and Kevin's marriage might be over but they still have love for one another and she realizes that when it comes to business they had a great partnership, there was definitely magic there,." The source continued, "Since he left the business there's been a lot of infighting and back-biting behind the scenes, that's the kind of stuff Kevin kept a handle on.
