Kristina divulged that being on set with Jack Wagner is much easier now. The former couple is able to separate the personal from the professional. “It’s so much easier, because I can go on set, establish my boundaries, and my needs, and wants and get through these scenes.” Kristina continues, “I can work with him as a professional actress rather than a girlfriend or a wife.”
