darrell dragon was complicated and led to toni filing for divorce after nearly 40 years of marriage. for the first time, toni is revealing details about her life in her book, "toni tennille, a memoir memoir." good to you here. >> great to meet you. >> so much excitement in this studio because o many of us grew up with you, loved you, admired you, and so many people felt invested in this couple, ptain & tennille. >> i know. i know. that's one of the reaf ns why it took me very, very long to make my mind, what i wk going to do. i spent the last eight years of my life in prescott, arizona, keeping my head down. not doing interviews. trying to figure out where i was going with this. then when i finally made up my mind, it was hard. i thought about a the fans and what they would th k. but with the help of my family and great women friends and a wonderful therapist, was finallywoble to make the decision. i had to. >> let's go back to the beginning.
together. it starts in an odd wayubecause, as we learn in this book, it was announced by your record company that you and daryl had gotten married. you want to tell everybody what happened? >> well, yeah. because we were living together when we first had "love will keep us together" out. everyone thought we were married, and we weren't. it was okay with me. my southern mother was worried. when are you going to get married?eryou know. oh, boy. i think the record company was uncomfortable with it, too. they had a publicist put out a piece that we were married on vale ine's day. >> they put a press release saying you were married and you were the l t to find out about it. >> we didn't know until we got letters from fans saying, that's te. you were married on valentine's day. we went, what? >> at that point, you decided what, w might as well? >> actually, we had an acsayicountant who said, you'd do better with your taxes if you were married.
that's why he did. >> because you -- and this is important to the story -- you truly love daryl dragon. >> i still do. i loved him with all my heart. what i was projecting on to him was something he could never be. didn't know that at the time. let's go to the wedding. you got married in nevada, not las vegas. there are no tra tional wedding photos of the day. tell us about this. this is essentially your wedding photo. >> well, yes. we wanted to get married quietly. we hadn't been on television that much at that time. was in november of 1974. so we went p to virginia city, a mining town in northern nevada, and found the judge in one of the bars. he told us to go down to the silver silver queen alao and he'd meet us there. we were married in the saloon, a tiny chapel. we walkedut the door to the
he said we get the certificate in thejmail, which we did. we thought, well, we should have some picture. the only thing we could find was a tourist photoshop where you could wear old time clothes and that was it. daryl's got a rifle in his hand. >> j you write movingly of the 39 years you spent together. yog.u said you felt all this time syou were auditioning for daryl's love and not getting it. you write, i can say he showed no physical affection for me during our long marriage. >> well -- >> what was it like to live with him? >> ineed to explain. people think we didn't have any sex, which we diay but sex i not love. sex is not intimacy. to me, it's something very precious and ery special. but he just could 't be affectionate. he couldn't give me a hug. he couldn't sit down and watch tv with our arms around each oty heba
i don't blame him because he came from a very, vtry difficult family. heoy had kind of a famous but overbearing father. he was raised differently from the way i was. none of his is his fault. it's my fault for trying to make him into the image i saw. >> a lot of people who will read the book will wonder, why did uoutay so long if it wa p so unsatisfying for you? >> okay. because i kept trying and trying and thinking i could bring this man, who has so much to give, into the light. i wanted him to experience the joy that i had with my loving family. i just couldn't do it. eventually, i was n it and aple were sa ng, oh, we love you,aptain & tennille, perfect relationship. i felt bad because i knew the truth. it took me a very long time, with the help of a therapist, to be able to say,knows nt.ot that. i'm going to try to fouin somee joy in my efe. >> i don't want to give it away, but there is a scene in the book
point and when you decided, i ne bed to w k away. what does daryl think about youn writing the book? we reached out to him, and he said, let's double the sales. >> i told him at qhe b,ginning when i was going to write it. i said, you know, daryl, it'll be from my point oo view of the relationship. 'r fren to wri your own story. write a blog, anything, to tell your side. he said, i'm not rried. you've always been a straight shooter. he knew i am. i think he won't be unhappy when he reads this. >> toni tennille, it's a pleasure to speak to you and tch ud wit you. the memoir, of course , people look forward to reading. >> there's an audible version, too. i read it. you can hear my voice. >> any singing? >> no. >> toni, thank you so much. >> thank you, savannah. up next, takingtthe stress out of the tax deadline ifa you're one of the millions panicking about the deadline looming. first, this is "today" on
