“I could stay in New Jersey with my job [and] my family that lives down the street. I live close to New York City. I can take the ferry in, and I have a great night at a great restaurant and go to a Broadway show,” Casey said of what Nist allegedly was thinking.

“And if I live with you, I’m in the house that you built with your wife, and there’s nothing to do here, and we have nothing to talk about because we were on a TV show where we couldn’t talk about real life feelings. So yeah, this sucks,” Casey added.
