Does Kelly Tilghman Have A Spouse? Or Is She Gay/Lesbian?
Kelly Tilghman is one of those personalities who like to keep her personal life very private and out from the eye of the public. So her name has not been linked up with any guy although she has been working in the media field for more than two decades.
