Relationship, Marriage, and Divorce
Prior to their relationship, Troy was known to have dated country singer Lorrie Morgan but things did not work out. Worthey and Aikman started a relationship after getting to know each other while working at the Dallas Cowboys organization, and married in 2000. With the marriage, he adopted her daughter, and they would have two daughters of their own as well. The daughters showed an interest in sports like their father, and things seemed to be going well until 2011, when the couple made a joint statement that they had decided to divorce.
According to them, it was a difficult decision to make, but despite the divorce, they remained committed to their children. They didn’t share any more details, but according to several sources, it was completed shortly after the announcement, with Rhonda getting a huge sum from her ex-husband, enough that she was able to purchase her own home. She also won the custody battle of their two children. The two moved on, with Rhonda gaining lesser and lesser media attention over the next few years.
“The Real Housewives of Dallas” Rumor Mill
“The Real Housewives of Dallas” or RHOD is a reality television series that is the ninth installment of “The Real Housewives” franchise, joining shows such as “The Real Housewives of Orange County”, “The Real Housewives of New York City”, and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. The show focuses on the professional and personal lives of well-known women living in Dallas, Texas, who are all high profile in some way thanks to their personal endeavors as well as the success of their husbands.
Prior to the show airing in 2016, there was a lot of speculation that Worthey was going to become a regular cast member of the show, thanks to her popularity through Aikman. However, many fans were disappointed when she was not included in the cast. Instead, personalities such as Tiffany Hendra, and Brandi Redmond were featured. Despite all the rumors, it was never really confirmed by her or the producers that she was going to be a part of the show. One of the reasons why she didn’t make it was likely due to the long postponement of the show, which took four years before actually airing.
For her personal life, it is known that Rhonda is single and apparently hasn’t started another relationship after separating from her ex-husband. After the divorce, she was arrested for public intoxication at a high school, allegedly violating public well-being. According to reports, police officers found her with two water bottles that actually contained alcohol. She later pleaded no contest in exchange for a 30 day probation period. Her lawyer later made a statement that she did no wrong, and that they are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Her ex-husband on the other hand has moved on, and has married fashion retailer Catherine “Capa” Mooty.
