Nicky Whelan recalls parting ways with Kerry Rhodes and Kyle Schmid, says breakups don’t have to be 'sad'
Nicky Whelan is gearing up for big projects in Hollywood and it wouldn't be presumptuous to say she's in a good place, professionally. Her personal life, however, has been under the covers for the longest time, especially her split with ex-husband and NFL star Kerry Rhodes.
Both Nicky and Kerry have chosen to keep the lid on their marriage. The couple met in 2015 while filming for a comedy sketch in Los Angeles and married at the plush Beverly Hills Hotel on April 15, 2017. Unfortunately, six months later, they separated. They didn't reveal the reason then and aren't doing it now.
However, Nicky did open up about how that phase was for her. Talking to WHO, an Australian magazine, the 'Hall Pass' actress said there were times she was in despair but there were also moments in which she laughed hard. Basically, it was a mixed bag of emotions for her but she doesn't appear to be complaining.
"Breakups don’t always have to be a sad thing depending on how you want to look at them," she shared and added that even though she kept quiet about her split-upwith Kerry, a year after their divorce it had become important for her to speak up. "But I did think it was important a year later...to reflect and let people know that I am human," the star elaborated.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Nicky shared how life changed for her in just a year's time. "This time last year I walked away from my entire life with yoda under my arm... I started my life again at 36," she wrote and shared details of what she had been up to in those 365 days.
"In this past year, I have been to Australia three times ... one time for a summer vacation with my beautiful family ... and the other two times for incredible campaign I am part of down there... I’ve had two television spots ... I have been the lead actress in FIVE movies ... I have traveled through all of Italy ... I have filmed in four different states in the USA ... I spent a month in Thailand surrounded by magic," she added.
This essay of sorts was indicative of how busy and enriching her life has been and that she has taken a personal unfortunate episode in her stride and moved on.
In 2019, Nicky dated Canadian actor Kyle Schmid. But they have now broken up. "Kyle and I had a fantastic time together. We have gone our separate ways now, which is so peaceful and so beautiful. And again, another chapter in my life that was wonderful," Nicky confirmed.
