All of us have our ideas about Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno’s bitter divorce.
After all we do. In the event that they weren’t a messy couple with drama-filled lives, they wouldn’t be on actuality tv.
However some folks know them higher than others, and don’t view them by the lens of household.
Bear in mind their outdated buddy, Obed? He has some ideas about this divorce.
Obed Corporan is a well-known face to longtime The Household Chantel viewers.
This week, he opened as much as In Contact Weekly about Pedro’s “shock” divorce submitting earlier this 12 months.
“To be trustworthy with you, I used to be not” shocked, Obed admitted.
“I did really feel unhappy when Chantel advised me,” Obed expressed.
“However I felt unhappy for her,” he added.
“And,” Obed continued, he felt unhappy for “the state of affairs she needed to cope with.”
“She didn’t deserve that,” Obed emphasised of Chantel.
“I’d by no means assume it was her fault,” he shortly assured.
Obed then characterised Chantel: “She’s the sweetest.”
All of us first met Obed when he appeared on The Household Chantel‘s first season, as a buddy of the couple.
“In 2014, I used up to now Pedro’s greatest buddy,” he defined of how he met them.
“And have become his buddy,” Obed shared, “as I believed he was a pleasant man.”
“Chantel was additionally my ex’s buddy,” Obed detailed.
“And,” he defined, “that’s how I ended up being mates together with her too.”
That is smart. Bear in mind, Chantel and Pedro have been collectively for a very long time.
All of us recall how Obed warned Chantel that Pedro’s mom and sister, Lidia and Nicole, have been scheming.
He believed that they’d hoped that Pedro would marry an American lady — any American lady — as a ploy.
Their endgame could be for him to stay within the US and ship cash dwelling.
Obed shared on this interview that he was hesitant to look on the present.
“I felt slightly bit scared at first,” he recalled.
Obed defined: “as a result of earlier than filming, I’ve by no means had any earlier expertise in entrance of cameras.”
He continued: “And exhibits as massive as 90 Day Fiance and The Household Chantel.”
“So,” Obed reasoned, “I didn’t actually know what to anticipate.”
He went on: “However after I met the crew and realized that there was no appearing concerned, I began to really feel extra comfy.”
“Because it was simply two mates having a dialog,” Obed characterised.
He added: “with the one element of coping with lots of cameras round us.”
With that have underneath his belt, Obed commented: “I’d like to be in a actuality television present once more.”
“Though I used to be labeled because the villain in Chantel and Pedro’s love story,” Obed acknowledged.
“After 90 Day Fiance and The Household Chantel,” he described, “I ended up loving the expertise and eager to do it once more.”
Nicely, we want Obed luck. With Chantel and Pedro enjoined by court docket order from interacting, The Household Chantel‘s future stays unclear.
