After her marriage fell apart, Shania turned to the one person she thought could understand: Marie-Anne's ex-husband, Fred. Shania says she and Fred had always had a distant friendship, but that all changed after they learned about the betrayal. "The person to comfort me was Fred because he's been through the exact same thing," Shania says. "Fred was safe. So it was really a beautiful and perfect friendship."
Over time, Fred and Shania's shared pain evolved into something more. "He was Marie-Anne's husband. That's twisted, if you really think about it. But just so beautifully twisted," Shania says. On January 1, 2011, Fred and Shania married on a beach in Puerto Rico.
"I really can't complain. I've got a beautiful man; I have everything I could ever want in life," Shania says.
