Krystal Nielson discusses her divorce from her ex-husband Chris Randone
During the show, co-hosts Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo asked Krystal Nielson about going through a divorce in the public eye.
In response, she stated that it was quite frightening.
“The divorce was difficult because I felt that coming on ‘Paradise’ and finding someone, there was so much love and attention,” she continued.
There was a lot of joy surrounding our connection, and I convinced myself that being in a relationship meant I was adored, but by myself, I was a villain.”
“When I decided to divorce, I was terrified that I would be the villain again outside of that relationship.”
I was afraid that I would not be loved or accepted, and that I would be perceived as a failure.
For a long time, we debated whether or not to divide and whether or not to be prepared.”
Nielson described her and Randone’s divorce as frightening and difficult.
“It was on Valentine’s Day 2020, and then the pandemic happened and everything shut down,” she explained.
“I didn’t sure what to say since I wanted to be respectful of my ex and honor both of our sorrow for what was.”
It was difficult to navigate inviting the public in since they were so invested in our connection.”
She then stated that she sought privacy but felt obligated to share this with all of the show’s followers.
“It was incredibly tough, so I backed up for a time because I didn’t know what to say.”
Krystal Nielson discusses whether she wants to marry again
In the same podcast, Krystal Nielson revealed whether or not she plans to marry her fiance, Miles Bowles.
“There’s so much around getting a ring and getting married,” she admitted, “but in this relationship, we’ve done everything a little backward.”
We had a baby and did everything our own way.”
“There have been times when I wished for the ring and thought about how it’s a symbol of love.”
But I’ve had to dig deep and remember that a tangible possession does not determine someone’s love for me.”
Nielson then stated that love, in her opinion, is showing up and being there for her.
“Love means being devoted.
There is so much pressure in society to prove love through marriage, and there is something so wonderful about that commitment that I don’t want to take away from it, and I do look forward to it.”
She went on to say that she must remember that a tangible object, such as a ring, does not confirm her self-worth.
Even though she exchanges wedding vows with her lover, she is “divided between having a huge ceremony and just eloping.”
“Honestly, I don’t really know,” Nielson continued.
It will be a discussion with Miles to determine what is essential to us.
Whatever happens, it will be perfect.
I’m not going to be that bride who obsesses over the smallest details.”
The reality TV personality then predicted that she would have an intimate wedding with a modest ceremony with only close friends and family attendance.
“I think what’s crucial is unity and having the most important individuals there,” she remarked.
“It doesn’t have to be a performance for anyone else.”
It doesn’t make sense to me to spend years paying off a party. I’d much rather purchase a home!
That is not something I require. “All we need are decent images, and I’ll be OK,” she continued.
As the interview looked to be coming to a close, the co-hosts asked Nielson if she was looking forward to having more children in the future, to which she replied that she was since she enjoys being a mother.
“I can hardly wait to do it again.” And now, knowing what I know, I’m going to enjoy my next pregnancy even more and be much more present.
“Rather than taking on everything by myself, I will lean into my spouse, ask for support, and ask for help when I need it,” she said.
