Jillian Barberie talks about selling her diamonds for her divorce with husband Grant Reynolds last year
Jillian Barberie ended her relationship with her former husband Grant Reynolds last year. Getting a divorce with her husband of six years and the father of her two kids was a pretty hard decision for the radio host. But, after getting over the heartbreak, the Canadian actress and model talked to Howard Stern in an interview and shared her experience of selling all her diamonds after the separation.
The TV hostess admitted that she was worried about her future and financial downfall after the divorce. But, after selling the diamonds, all her worries were put to rest. She elaborated that she had to sell her precious stones before her divorce with Reynolds was finalized.
Jillian was previously married to former Major League Baseball player Bret Barberie from 1996 to 2002. After her divorce with Barberie, she hooked up with Reynolds. The couple tied the knot in 2006 in a hushed up ceremony. The Fox NFL Sunday host got pregnant with her daughter Ruby Raven in 2006 and gave birth in 2007. The couple later welcomed their second child, a baby boy Rocco Rio, in 2010. But after three years of his birth, the proud parents officially announced their spilt.
Talking about her divorce, she added that after her divorce she had to ‘hustle’. After the separation, the beauty queen was rather nervous about her future and children. This was the reason why she ended up selling all her diamonds as she was not sure whether she would ever find work again. Well, now things have changed and the actress has her hands full with several top projects and money is raining.
Jillian also talked about managing both Kylie and Kendall Jenner, hosting a radio show and a few hot bikini shoots as well. The gorgeous former weatherwoman also starred on America's Next Top Weatherman in August.
Barberie also recalled her time with Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce) but said that they no longer met. She also admitted that she had a great time with the whole family. The beauty queen said: “One night they were skating really late and he (Bruce) was the last one on the ice. He fell on his face and there was blood all over. I called Kris and they had a plastic surgeon come to stitch him up.” She also revealed that she was shocked when she heard about Caitlyn’s transition from male to female. Though she hasn’t met the Caitlyn after the transition, she praised Cat for her beauty and elegance as a woman.
Barberie is now working as a manager for models and reality stars Kylie and Kendall Jenner..
