‘This was a really tough season for me because I know me and Eduardo have not been in the best place for probably a couple years,’ she told People in an interview ahead of the reunion.

‘And I think that this year, especially with the pandemic and everything that happened, he was really busy with his work. I was trying to keep busy with my stuff. But at the end of the day, it was like something that it was really, really killing me inside more than I was expecting,’ she added.

Kary and her businessman husband wed in Careyes, Mexico, in 2009 and are still living together with their children.

‘The past year, it was more of a roommate situation than a marriage. And I’m very Latin, I’m very passionate. I need love. I need to feel loved and hugs. And I was not getting that anymore,’ she told the publication.

‘I just started feeling really empty and I just was not happy. Honestly, at the end of the day, life is short and with this pandemic and the older I get, the shorter it gets, and I just feel like I just wanted to move on and I need to be happy and he needs to be happy,’ she added about her decision.

Kary and Eduardo officially decided to split in January, but never revealed it publicly until now.

The media personality said it happened as a result of someone offering to buy their home: ‘I had a talk with Eduardo the next day after we got the offer. I said, “Listen, we need to talk about everything. Because if we sell the house this is a time to sell it and not move to the same place. It’s like, is it time to talk about our issues so we can kind of make the big decisions?”‘

‘I knew that I hadn’t been happy and I was just trying to pretend I was,’ she confessed to People.

Long time coming: 'This was a really tough season for me because I know me and Eduardo have not been in the best place for probably a couple years,' she told People ahead of the reunion

Kary explained that she’s ‘definitely very scared’ about starting this next chapter in her life, but knew she made the right choice for her happiness. 

‘It’s a very scary time. In January, I literally would drive around in my car and just start bawling, crying. And I’m not a big crier. It was so obvious that I had so much inside of me. I was just really scared because I’m like, I don’t want to fail at this marriage. I didn’t want to fail at anything. And I’m scared. I mean, I am so lucky that I have my jewelry. And I had so much support from that. That has been amazing,’ she told the outlet.

‘I just have to really keep working hard and prove it to my kids and three daughters, especially, that no matter what age, no matter when you can still figure it out and make it, just keep thriving. I guess now more than ever, I’m having the drive to really make it happen. I’m determined to show everyone that I can do it,’ she continued.

Her interview ended on a hopeful note: ‘I feel like when you’re happier and when you’re happy with yourself, you’re just a better person.’
