"I spent the whole [COVID-19] pandemic by myself. Well, six months of it alone, because Robert Sr. actually got stuck in Florida," she said. "He was too afraid to fly home."

Although Mary went on to explain, "The first six months I was with my son, [Robert Jr.]," she admitted that the two weren't having much deep conversation. "It's not like my son sits down and wants to talk to me," she said. "He's a teenager."

Having alone time at home led Mary to an exciting new venture. "Developing through that aloneness, I started talking to myself. I was talking to the mannequins. Like, it was not OK," she said. "So I came up with, 'Why don't I get a podcast?'"

Mary and Robert Sr.'s Utah and Florida homes are just two of five that they own. On an episode of the show last season, Mary revealed that they also have properties in Nevada, New York, and Indiana. "Robert Sr. does love checking on all of the homes that we own," Mary said, noting the couple has no interest in having renters when they're not at one of the houses. "When we're not there, they are empty... We don't share."
