It all started when television and radio host Erik Kuselias got drunk at a Super Bowl Monday Night Football party and chattered out inappropriately to a female ESPN employee. When the employee reported about this, Erik got suspended from his work.
After the incident, Holly found that her husband’s habits needed an inspection, so she hired a private investigator to dig deeper into his life.
