‘I was 23 when I met Jay, I was a baby and at that time in my life, getting married and having kids was the next natural step. I had gotten everything out of my system and I don’t regret anything at all and I am thankful for our time together,’ she said on the podcast, via TooFab.

She continued: ‘I just think, now I’m so different dating and I see s**ta mile away. And now it’s like “Nope, I’m not going to put up with that.” It’s a big turnoff instead of being, “Maybe he’ll change, I can fix him.”‘

Kristin and Jay are parents to sons Camden, nine, and Jaxon, eight, and daughter Saylor, six.

‘Because I have three children with him, I’m very careful about what I say. If you and I didn’t have microphones in front of us, I’d f*****g tell you. But that’s their dad and my oldest Googles us now. I just want to be very careful. Even if I don’t say anything, the headlines will say I f*****g trashed him somehow. It was toxic, period, end of story, that’s all I need to say,’ Kristin said.

‘I hope that he finds someone, I really do. I want him happy. My kids benefit from that. I hope that he gets remarried. I really do. Obviously the first time I heard, it stung a little. I really want all of my exes to be happy and be in a great relationship.’

Kristin doesn’t regret anything and is ‘thankful’ for their time together because of their three children.

During the interview, she also talked about a recent date she had with an actor – although she didn’t divulge who – and how awful it was.

She said he was ‘slamming drinks’ and then trying to show off his stunts he does while inside a restaurant.

‘He was slamming drinks, like slamming drinks and then at one point he was telling me he does his own stunts. We were sitting at the bar, it’s f*****g packed, he gets up to reenact a stunt he had done, accidentally runs into the waiter. I was like “Please sit the f**k down,” just creating commotion in the middle of Laurel Hardware. Reenacting a stunt in the middle of a packed restaurant. It was awful,’ she said.
