In 2010 actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon exposed her ex-husband, Michael Milon, in a juicy email to his colleagues at Creative Artists Agency, Nilon’s place of employment.

In the e-mail, which, according to the New York Post, was titled “Tiger Woods/Jesse James/Mike Nilon,” Beauvais wrote: “What do they have in common … I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don’t deserve this!”

Now, the “NYPD Blue” beauty, 43, is revealing why she chose that route. In a recent clip from an upcoming episode of Oprah’s “Where Are They Now,” Beauvais broke down how she felt the moment she discovered the betrayal. “My whole life was turned upside down. I forgot my phone at home. I said, ‘Hey, can I use your phone to call your mom?’ So, I went to go make the call and I saw, ‘I love you’ [on the phone],” Beauvais says. “I looked again, and I said, ‘What’s this?’ That’s pretty much how everything changed.”

Heartbroken and infuriated, the former model pulled out her computer and penned a note to his co-workers, accusing her then-husband of having a five-year affair with a Chicago woman. That very email was later leaked to the New York Post, and from there it was picked up by numerous media outlets.

“When I actually looked and realized it had been leaked, I was sobbing, sobbing,” she says. “It’s embarrassing. At the same time, you’re in pain. It was another part of the devastation, honestly.”

Following the aftermath, the former “The Jamie Foxx Show” star sought out a life coach in hopes of picking up the pieces and putting her life back together. “I did all the things that they say you should do, because I didn’t want my adult drama to affect my kids,” she said tearfully. “I couldn’t have moved on and been a good parent and co-parent with him if I didn’t do those things. We’re doing the best we can for those boys. They deserve it.”

The two, who wed in Los Angeles in May 2001, have twin boys, Jax and Jaid. Beauvais also has a son, 18, from a previous marriage.
