The reality star announced in April 2018 that she filed for divorce from the former NFL player after nearly nine years of marriage. The pair share son Hank IV and daughter Alijah.
First on that list is former Bachelorette contestant Chad Johnson, to whom she was linked in early 2019 after the duo were spotted getting cozy while out to dinner in Los Angeles. “For the millionth time. I’m not dating right now,” she tweeted in January of that year. “I’m basically a f—king virgin.”
After her best friend Jessica Hall told her about the rumors, the Sliding Into Home author replied, “My vagina is still very closed.”
“I want to see [Kendra] with a family man because that’s all that she wants,” Hall told Us Weekly exclusively in September 2019. “She doesn’t want the spotlight or the crazy success. She wants a guy that just wants to go camping and wants to take her and barbecue. She’s so simple and I think a lot of people don’t realize that about her, but she really wants the ultimate family guy and it’s what she’s always dreamed of and what she’s going to continue to want, so I like that it has not changed and she has not changed.”
At the time, the Kendra on Top alum was focusing on her kids and career, even as Hall tried to set her up with some eligible bachelors. “I’ve mentioned a few things here and there,” her friend told Us. “I wish I had a family member single, to be honest, so I could make her my real-life sister, but I don’t. I mean, my husband does have an identical twin brother, but no.”
In April 2020, the California native — who was previously linked to philanthropist Donald “DJ” Friese — was spotted with a mystery man in Los Angeles, but a source told Us at the time that it was nothing serious. The insider added that she had been seeing someone that spring, but it was “more so a fling” than a serious relationship.
“She wasn’t spending all her free time with him and she [wasn’t] super optimistic in terms of where their ‘relationship’ [was] going,” the source explained in May 2020.
