Disrupting Divorce: Conversations for Women

Jul 30, 2021

In this episode, Rhonda welcomes Elizabeth Kay, the Morning Show host on 99.1 The Mix and podcast host of “50 Shades of Kay”. Elizabeth talks about her divorce process, the things she did, and the things she wished she did differently. She also talks about her life after divorce. According to her, you are going to have tough days, even after the divorce, because you need the time to mourn your relationship. Elizabeth also shares about her life in a blended family and gives some excellent co-parenting tips. She highly recommends the book The Happy Stepmother by Rachelle Katz, which is very helpful and easy to read.    

Elizabeth’s message to the women going through the divorce is: Put your needs first and do not apologize for it, even if there are kids involved in the divorce. If you do not take care of yourself, and put your oxygen mask on first, you are going to suffer the consequences of that down the road, and ultimately, so will your children. 

Here are some of her recommendations:

  1. You are in the stage of the process where you are thinking very emotionally. And you are making permanent decisions. Put your power team together that will get you through and help you realize that you are not alone.  And find someone you can talk to that is completely not involved and does not know all the people involved.
  2. You can picture something in your future, but it does not always happen. It is good to plan, but sometimes you need not be so strict with the plan. You have to follow your gut.
  3. Your kids are paying attention. They hear things, they pick up on things. If you have any frustrations do not say them in front of a child. That does not do anybody any good, and there are always two sides to every story. Get out of your ego.

I host the Elizabeth and Radar morning radio show on 99.1 The Mix in Milwaukee, and I host a woman's lifestyle podcast, 50 Shades of Kay.

I went through a divorce eight years ago, and now I am remarried. I have a 16-year-old stepson. This past March, I donated my kidney on behalf of my mother-in-law through the paired kidney exchange program.
