Lisa, 40, who worked the prime-time shift at the West Palm Beach station for 10 years, is at the receiving end of a divorce complaint filed by veteran investigative reporter Derek Hayward.
The Haywards, the parents of two children, hit a rough patch last summer when the now-unemployed Lisa was picked up near her Broward County home on a DUI charge.
Three days later, Derek, 60, was arrested for allegedly roughing her up. Lisa, 40, who was also an anchor on WSFL’s now-defunct The Morning Show, pleaded no contest to the DIU rap while no charges were filed against Derek on the domestic violence incident.
Derekâ€™s asking a Broward court to be the kidsâ€™ primary guardian. And Lisa needs dough. She reports no income and $3,807 in monthly expenses and has yet to pay her attorney. I’m told she is, however, in love again — with a former Channel 7 colleague of Derek!
In 2008, Derek came close to reporting his wife missing after a public appearance in West Palm Beach. She eventually turned up and told him she turned off her cell phone so she could interview Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil in his room at The Breakers in Palm Beach. The rocker was in town to celebrate the opening on his bar on West Palm Beach’s Clematis district, Dr. Feelgoods.
Neither Derek nor Lisa returned calls about the divorce.
