Beauty queen’s ex still livid 24 years af­ter ugly di­vorce


DAN AYKROYD stole my wife and ru­ined my life!” That’s the claim of an­gry hus­band Rick Hawkins who di­vorced his gor­geous wife, Lisa — a former Miss Vir­ginia — af­ter ac­cus­ing her of cheat­ing with the Ghost­busters star!

“I used to think Dan Aykroyd was re­ally funny on Satur­day Night Live and in The Blues Broth­ers. But what that lowlife did to me was any­thing but funny,” fumes Hawkins, 59. “He’s a home-wrecker!” Hawkins mar­ried Miss Vir­ginia 1983, Lisa Aliff, in 1985 and says she soon high­tailed it off to Hol­ly­wood where she landed gigs in com­mer­cials and on Cheers.

Then she got a part in Aykroyd’s 1987 cop movie, Drag­net.

“That was the be­gin­ning of the end,” says Hawkins — who claims the ac­tor took Lisa on a ro­man­tic trip from Los Angeles to Canada in a cam­per in 1987 and bought her a Mitsubishi truck.

In court pa­pers filed in Jan­uary 1994, Hawkins says Lisa ad­mit­ted to him and oth­ers “that she had com­mit­ted adul­tery with Dan Aykroyd.”

The Trad­ing Places star — who’s been mar­ried to ac­tress Donna Dixon, who’s also a former Miss Vir­ginia, since 1983 — called Hawkins’ adul­tery charge a “flat lie,” adding: “This is a base­less fan­tasy.”

But Hawkins claims Lisa told him the il­licit lovebirds planned to tie the knot!

“Lisa said she and Dan loved each other and he planned to leave his wife, Donna, so they could be to­gether,” he says.

Although Lisa later de­nied the af­fair, Hawkins won cus­tody of their son, Lan­g­ley, who’s now 27 and a SWAT team mem­ber in Vir­ginia.

The cou­ple di­vorced in 1998 and Lisa re­mar­ried. To­day, nearly 25 years later, Hawkins still in­sists Aykroyd helped wreck his mar­riage.

“Dan Aykroyd messed up my life!” he tells GLOBE.

“I lost every­thing! Every­thing I had, ex­cept my son!”

Hawkins adds: “If Dan Aykroyd was in front of me now I’d beat him up! It’s been hell!”
