Ali Landry: Lopez break-up was blessing

Ali Landry admits she has "no relationship at all" with her ex Mario Lopez.

The 38-year-old former Miss USA model and the Extra presenter annulled their marriage in May 2004 just two weeks after their wedding.

Ali heard that Mario committed infidelity with a woman at his bachelor party days before the nuptial ceremony and decided to call their relationship quits.

The model and Mario aren't on speaking terms currently.

"Oh, there is no relationship at all," Ali told OK! magazine. "There's no friendship, there's no relationship, there was never an apology from him."

Ali is currently wed to her husband of six years Alejandro Monteverde and the star couldn't be happier with her family.

The adversity she experienced with Mario has actually benefitted her life exponentially.

"It's amazing," Ali shared. "I look at it, and it was one of the toughest things hands down that I've ever gone through, ever, and I don't wish it upon anyone, but I don't feel bitter at all. I'm actually so grateful that it happened because I would never be in the place I am now."

"I would have never been in the place to be open enough to find the man that I found. I don't think I would be the woman I am today or be doing the things that I'm currently doing if that incident would not have happened to me. I'm very grateful that I came through it in a wonderful, positive way. It affected my life in a really positive way in the end."

Ali and Alejandro have four-year-old daughter Estela and four-month-old son Marcelo together.

Mario is currently engaged to Courtney Mazza. The couple have 16-month-old daughter Gia together.
