Shortly afterwards, she regretted the decision and asked her attorneys to withdraw the divorce. In an interview with US Magazine in June 2010, Chynna revealed:
We are working in therapy together just by taking more time to communicate and talk and laugh and play scrabble and have sex! Just being together as a couple and remembering that the whole family unit is going to fall apart if the two of us aren’t strong. We have to put each other first and then the children. I think we had our priorities a little screwed up.
Later, in an interview with Hollywood Life in July, she mentioned:
We needed to prun and weed our relationship and we did it. We are feeling like a brand new refreshed and envigorated couple. There’s a lot more excitment and good energy.
