Married since 1995Robinson-Peete, 58, told Inside the Studio that as soon as they were asked to host, she knew she and her husband were perfect as guides for the show.
She said, “You know, when they asked us to do that, I was like, ‘You know, Rodney and I would be good at it.’ We’ve been married 150 years, right? We’ve been up, we’ve been down, we’ve had all kinds of problems, but we’re still here. We’re not going anywhere.”
“We felt (it would work) as long as we could be proactive with the ladies if they were open to talking to us about things,” she continued. “We don’t know everything, but we’ve seen a lot. And they were just very… they were like little sisters to us. They were very open.”
Although Robinson-Peete has starred in many Hallmark romances in which she finds love in a lead, she acknowledged that in real life, she and her husband “have been out of the dating game for almost 30 years, so we don’t have one.” Play more.” Though they had to learn from the three women what it’s like to date in today’s climate, the women did learn from them what it takes to persevere and make a relationship last.
“Rodney and I go in there and give advice and do a little couples counseling even though we’re not certified counselors,” she said. “But we talk to them because it’s important to us. We were very interested in these women finding love.”
Whether the TV experiment worked, Robinson-Peete said: “It was fun and successful. That’s all I can say about it. I loved it, I hope we can do another cycle.

Although their relationship has had its challenges, including coping with the autism diagnosis of their son RJ and the recent grief for Peete’s mother late last year, the couple is determined to get through the hard times and celebrate the good times.
In 2018 Robinson Peete said the New York Times“We survived our son’s autism, we survived the NFL, the distance of absence and the depression of athlete retirement. When autism struck, I thought it would break us, but it didn’t.”
Before they married, she told the newspaper, “Rodney was being monogamously challenged,” so he agreed to couples therapy. His openness to learning and change gave her hope for their relationship early on, saying, “It’s the work that he’s willing to put in that got us here.”
On his wife’s birthday in September 2022, Peete posted an Instagram photo of them together and wrote, “Thank you for always showing up for me and our family. I have loved you for more than half my time on earth and I will love and honor you forever and ever! You make me better baby!!”
The couple have four children together: twins Ryan Elizabeth Peete and Rodney Peete, Jr. (RJ), 25, and sons Robinson, 20, and Roman, 17.
