Rzeznik was 12 years older than Frantz, but they were head over heels in love despite their age difference. The couple made their red carpet debut at the 2000 Daytime Emmys. Their relationship was a big discussion in the soap opera community, and he won the approval of Frantz’s co-stars, including Susan Flannery. In a 2001 interview with People, Flannery talked about Rzeznik’s effect on Frantz. “He seems able to calm her and reassure her,” Flannery explained.

The couple split up in 2005

After five years together, Frantz and Rezeznik called it quits in 2005. Rumors swirled about the cause of the breakup. Some fans blamed the couple’s age difference, and others said it was because they wanted different things. Whatever the cause, it appears their split might not have been amicable.

In July 2013, when Rzeznik married Melina Gallo, Frantz threw shade at her famous ex. In a Twitter post, Frantz said she felt sorry for Gallo. From Frantz’s take, it seems Rzeznik might have been to blame for their split.
