He immediately got fired from NBC and his contract with the show to catch a predator was not renewed. It seems his small fun has led him towards his own disaster.

NBC stated that "The reason Hansen’s contract wasn’t being renewed was simple, his personal life was becoming an embarrassing distraction to NBC. As a journalist, when your personal life begins making the news, there are big problems.” 

At that time his wife didn't comment on the situation and it looks like she has nothing to say about her cheater of a husband.

Kristyn Statement
