When Gene Wilder passed away in 2016, people took to social media to say, "Gene is finally reunited with his greatest love, Gilda Radner!" Well, folks, I hate to break it to you, but their relationship was much more complicated than you think. Gene and Gilda were married for only five years before she passed away, and their relationship was marked with many highs and many lows. After Gilda's death, Gene was frank about their struggles, and Gilda's, er, over-the-topness, and he was also very open about finding lasting love with his fourth wife, Karen. In this episode, we'll explore Gene and Gilda has individuals, and them as a couple. I love both of these two actors dearly, so it was fun to dive into their personal stories.
