In 1999, there was a CHiPs reunion. During that reunion, Larry Wilcox revealed something about his second wife that took everyone by surprise. In an interview with People magazine, he stated that his second wife was a former prostitute.
Larry’s revelation was met with skepticism and criticism. Many people did not believe him, and others thought he was just trying to create buzz for the CHiPs reunion. Larry has not publicly addressed this issue since then. However, in my investigation, I have found some information that sheds light on this revelation.
