Married to John McEnroe for nearly a quarter-century, Patty Smyth might deserve a medal. Her spouse would probably agree, but their relationship probably doesn't come as hard to her, one who fronted a rock band, as some might think. One with that mindset knows how to give orders and take no tomfoolery. Besides, as she told NPR recently, she's actually the "hothead" of the pair.
She also knows how to give great answers. In a new Q&A with The New York Times, Smyth, one-time frontwoman for the band Scandal, dishes on everything from her new-in-2020 solo album to quarantine, McEnroe's increased guitar prowess to how he still eats healthy 26 years after retiring from pro tennis.
That is, perhaps, Thanksgiving aside—as with so many of us.
