Natalie was on channel 5 news tonight quite a bit. Not sure if it was live, but it seemed to have taken place in response to Chet's death. She had kind and emotional thoughts about Chet.  She talked about how painful it was to do the news together after their marriage ended, and how she'd expected the marriage would last forever.
