For Real Or For Ratings? Radio Personality DJ Envy Pours Heart Out To Wife…On The Air!

When you’re famous and your spouse becomes fed up with your antics, all you can do is apologize…publicly.  Well, that’s the route New York radio personality DJ Envy took with his wife, Gia.

On Friday during Power 105’s Breakfast Club, co-host Charlamagne Tha God was awarding his daily “Donkey of the Day Award.”  To the surprise of listeners, the award went to fellow Breakfast Club host DJ Envy, with Charlamagne saying, “Something is off.  You’re looking stressed, you’re balling up in the corner in the fetal position, your radio/dj game is off…I know I gotta talk to my friend.  Whatever personal issues which are causing you to age drastically, like you listen to Adele records…I’m asking as a friend if you need some personal time off. Why has your game been off?”

After a “pregnant pause,” DJ Envy revealed:

“Shout to my wife. I been with my wife 18 years and sometimes you don’t treat the person well. You think they’ll always be there.  Its been a point where I’ve treated my wife like ish. It has to do with the small things you don’t do anymore.”

As the show continued, Envy went on to reveal that he’s gotten to the point where he doesn’t appreciate her and has taken her for granted.  Further, in a shaky voice, he revealed that he buys Gia things versus complimenting her or taking her out and making her feel like a wife.  In an attempt to make the situation better, he decided to call his “queen” on the air.  He then told her that he knows  he’s not been there for her, hes’ not been honest or loyal and he regrets everything he’s done to her and sincerely apologizes for everything.  At the end of the conversation, a seemingly shocked Gia told Envy she loved him as well and to call her when he was off the radio.

Whatever Envy has done to his wife (and there are many things you can assume based on his apology alone), he seems to really feel bad about it now. The hope is that this was a very sincere apology, especially since they have two children together and almost 20 years together (they were high school sweethearts). However, with the Breakfast Club in a ratings war with Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg morning show as well as Gia allegedly joining the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey, there’s a chance this was all for publicity and better ratings. There’s no question that in a local radio war, listeners will opt to listen to the station that makes them feel like they can relate to them.

Perhaps we’ll see when RHONJ airs this summer where they are in their relationship. Marriage is hard and since Envy seems to know that he is solely to blame, we hope he does his best to get his family back together and the chips fall where they should.

If your significant was not treating you the way they should, would you think that a public apology would be a good way for them to go?

If you’d like to listen, the conversation starts around 22:15.

    .I only say that because of Angela Yee’s BAD acting as always.

    • Na Na

      I give props to every one who makes it pursuing their dreams but for the life of me I cannot understand how Angela has gotten so far in her career cuz she sucks.

  • britchick91

    I think that it was sincere .I did hear that his wife is going to be on The Real Housewives of New Jersey not sure whether it is true.

  • bluekissess

    It’s crazy how you can look at somebody you love and know something was wrong. But, his apology sounds real.

  • guest

    sounds like maybe his jump off was going to put him on blast, so he did it first… smart man.

  • Pivyque

    Personally, I wouldn’t want a public apology. However, it did seem genuine. I hope they work out whatever the issues are.

  • Meyaka

    I mean I’m afraid to even think about what he has done to have to pour his heart out like that, but i appreciate and applaud the effort and him recognizing his mistakes and trying to better himself.

  • I only think he said something because Charlamagne was pushing…as far as going public with your apology, public or private, sincerity from the heart is what matters…

  • Sorry sounded fake..I only say that because of Angela Yee’s BAD acting as always.

  • shaaaaa

    that was awkward af.. lol am i the only one?

  • Kaori

    These types of matters need not be discussed with an audience.

  • Okayyyyy. I think she’s over Envy that bridge has been burned damn.

    • Kaori

      “Everyone” would include me, and I do not ‘love’ the Breakfast Club. And, it’s nitty gritty, not ‘needy greedy’.

      • Lol preach

      • lacoste

    I love the breakfast club, I really think it was sincere

  • GalaxyEmpress

    The wife sounds like she’s over it, and isn’t really trying to hear anything her husband Envy is saying, R. Kelly did say, “when a woman is fed up there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    • Yup

    • MLS2698

      Ain’t nobody tryin’ to hear some of these men and their BS. Dude is probably just realizing with 18 years, she can take him and all of his foolery straight to the bank/courts. They always get to talkin’ that way when they are about to watch the ship go down. He better grab a life jacket.

    • Rajo1

      Absolutely. But who gives a fuk. If that’s how they act then move past that old pu s s y. Men wanting to be with a woman is a gift. If it was about sex only that would be over after a month tops. While as women have to try n convince themselves that they are happy with someone new, but that makes them look like ho3s because its a false happiness.

      • Youknowwhatiitis

        So if a women doesn’t wanna be with a man h0e that makes her a h0e? You sound stupid as all hell.

        • Rajo1

          Did yu see me write anything about te man being unfaithful? I responded to the comment about a woman being “fed up” which was r Kelly’s song ….being fed up doesnt have to mean the man is cheating on her…it could mean anything…seems as if yu felt some kind of way

      • GalaxyEmpress

        What you just typed made every last bit of zero sense! Come again.

        • Sheena

          Thank you! Im like wtf is he talking about?

      • Kaori

        “Men wanting to be with a woman is a gift” What? That makes no sense, but neither does the rest of your comment.

        • Rajo1

          Oh but it is…but us men are from another planet…so I don’t expect yu to understand. Female.

          • Kaori

            Explain, in standard English how a man wanting to be with a woman is a ‘gift’.

  • greygoose125

    If Envy and his wife are having martial issues, there’s no need to handle their personal business on air – work on your marriage in private. I think his public apology will be used as part of his wife’s storyline when she joins the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

    • Nikki

      I have to disagree. In my opinion, he didn’t handle it on air; he just talked about what’s causing him to be down. He didn’t go into deep detail. Charlamagne talks about stepping out on his girl all the time.

    • lacoste

      Dang I didn’t know karate was involved. Martial issues really?!?

      • SheBe


  • LondynNicole

    I really believe this was a sincere apology. Shout out to DJEnvy!

  • KJ23

    I think it was sincere. I like The Breakfast Club, and nothing they seem to do seems based off of publicity sake.

  • Per

    I think he should’ve done that on air. Oh and it starts at around 20:00

    • Nikki

      Ahh! Thank you! I love The Breakfast Club, but I didn’t want to listen to all of that!
