Bravo's “Sweet Home Oklahoma” star Jennifer Welch has officially labeled the relationship between she and ex-husband Josh Welch as, “it’s a Facebook: it’s complicated.”
The couple divorced in 2013 -- but rekindled a year and a half later for sake of their family -- and viewers of the show will get an in-depth look at the status of the couple's relationship.
“Josh is a wonderful person, but he struggles like so many people do with drug addiction,” Welch told TooFab during an interview in our studio.
Amidst the worst of his addiction and divorce, Josh was forced to resign from his law practice after being caught bribing a police officer.
“When he relapses, I mean it is titanic about to sink,” Welch said. “And so when we divorced I had to stop rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic. So I jumped off the boat with the kids.”
Jennifer and Josh have two sons, Dylan (age 14) and Roman (age 10) who were “heartbroken” watching their father battle his vice.
“When Josh gets sober he is a wonderful person and wonderful father,” Welch told TooFab. “I was happy to see him again because I missed him and I loved him.”
But Jennifer also wanted to point out that while their show is funny, it also accurately captures how they take on life's everyday curveballs.
“If we can help people see that you can get to the other side of this, you can find recovery and you can restore your family because it does plague so many families.”
"Sweet Home Oklahoma" airs Mondays at 10/9c.
