Frank Grillo and his second wife Wendy Moniz ended their relationship in 2020, after almost two decades of marriage. 

They had first met in the late 1990s on the set of the soap opera Guiding Light and fallen in love at first sight. 

Grillo recounted a scene from the comedy show where Moniz had shot him during his appearance on The Crew in 2017. 

"She kills me. It was love at the first shot," recalled the actor, bursting into fits of laughter. He also joked that he married Moniz because he couldn't stand her. 

Following a lengthy courtship, the duo tied the knot on October 28, 2000.

Grillo and his spouse bought a four-bedroom home in Pacific Palisades in California in 2017. While their marriage seemed to thrive on the surface, it apparently wasn't the case. 

In March 2021, People magazine reported that the married duo had filed for divorce. The news outlet mentioned that their separation date was February 21, 2020. 

Grillo's former wife had asked for joint legal and physical custody of their two sons, Rio Joseph and Liam, who were 10 and 15, respectively.

While the project is in pre-production, Grillo's relationship with Whelan has ended as of this time of writing. The pair broke up around mid-2021. 

Is Frank Grillo Dating Anyone?

Grillo shared about his singlehood while talking to the photographers present at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood on November 3, 2021. 

The revelation (via Just Jared) came when one photographer interrogated Grillo about his dating status, asking if he was dating an Australian girl. In response, he stated, "No, that's over. I am single." 

He also mentioned there was "no difference" between American and Australian girls. "They are all the same. They are great," Grillo remarked. 

When asked if he was using apps to get back in the dating game, the Purge star said he had no idea "how to do that." He joked he was "100 years old and a [explective] dinosaur."

Apparently, the famed actor is still single. No news of his love life has surfaced after the interview.
