Danielle Ruhl of ‘love is Blind’ Opens Up About ‘raw’ Days After Divorce Announcement with Nick Thompson
Danielle Ruhl of Love Is Blind is speaking out about her divorce from her spouse Nick Thompson. The reality actress, who met her husband on season 2 of the Netflix dating show, stated that there was no single cause for her divorce petition in August.
“Everyone wants a huge story when that wasn’t necessarily the reality,” Danielle told E! News. “It was difficult to talk about it at first since the emotions were and still are raw. But it’s also not a really compelling story. It was just two people who thought it was better to part ways.” “There had been no tragedy,” she continued. “Also, many people imagined there was some type of inducement for the couples to stay together for a year, which was not the case.”

She believes that people did not get the full picture when they watched the After the Altar special, which aired in mid-September, just after their breakup was announced. “One of the most often questions I get is, ‘Oh, you people seem so perfect during After the Altar,” she remarked. “But it’s also worth noting that the filming took place in March.
