They were trolled for their age difference.

Scott Adams And His Wife Kristina Basham Replied To Haters

Author and cartoonist Scott Adams and his second wife, Kristina Basham, have already gone on separate ways less than two years after sharing the wedding vows.

The news of their divorce was first announced by Adams. On Thursday, March 10, 2022, he announced on his podcast series Real Coffee With Scott Adams that he and Basham have called it quits.

He mentioned, “I am separated slash going through a divorce. Only reason I am telling you that is that if you see my ex-wife on a date or me, don’t worry about it because it’s a process that has been going on for some time.”

On the next day, March 11, Basham also took to her Twitter handle to announce two big things that were happening in her life. Firstly, she announced that she was dealing with a divorce, and secondly, she was battling cancer.

Her original tweet read, “I’m dealing with a divorce and battling cancer. Now I remember why I stayed off Twitter. A lot of older people acting like kids. Holy cow.”

Since they announced their split, there have been no further updates on their divorce process, as they have kept the information up to themselves only. Likewise, the reason behind their decision to get a divorce also remains unknown.

Some have speculated that it was their huge age difference that played a vital role in their split. On the other hand, some theorized other reasons. But the original reason still remains undisclosed, and it will stay the same until Adams or Basham decides to disclose it.

That said, the now-divorced couple was yet to welcome a child during their relationship. Furthermore, since his divorce from Basham, there have been no new updates about Adams’ relationship status. So, he might not be dating a girlfriend now.

Scott Adams and Kristina Basham were trolled for their age difference

Adams reportedly met Basham in 2016 and began dating in the same year. Since then, people have questioned and passed on mean comments about the couple on social media mainly because of the couple’s age difference.

On July 12, 2018, one Twitter user expressed their views on the pair’s relationship, saying that Adams was smart and knew that Basham was with him only for money; however, he would let her be with him because he wanted a young girl in his life.

Similarly, when the comic creator posted a beautiful picture of his wife on Twitter, another Twitter user, on July 8, 2018, replied to the post by writing, “your granddaughter?”

These were just a few instances when the couple was trolled and received disturbing and mean comments. There are so many like these on the internet.

They responded after getting married

After almost three years of dating, Adams and Basham announced their engagement on Christmas 2019, and they married on July 11, 2020, after being in 4 years long relationship.

But their wedding once again invited several trolls and mean comments — all because of the couple’s age gap. As of 2022, the author was 65 years old, while his then-new wife was around 34.

That said, Adams and his wife didn’t hold back after reading all the mean comments. Within a few days after the wedding, the couple fired back at the comments about their wedding and relationship, which was a sight to witness.

At first, the comic creator took to Twitter to respond back to the haters on July 14, 2020. He sarcastically thanked the “bitter and broken people” who had unkind things to say about his wedding.

He also shared that he and his wife found those unkind comments entertaining. 

“Thank you to all the bitter and broken people who had unkind things to say about my wedding. We found it entertaining that so many professional writers could only think of one joke-insult…and it was the same one,” he wrote.

The next day, on July 15, the author’s wife added to her husband’s tweet and addressed the bitter comments on Adams’ wedding dress. She explained that he was going to wear a jacket and tie, but she stopped him from wearing them.

“It was 100 degrees out. Also, the wedding was in my backyard with only my parents, my grandparents and my siblings because that’s what I wanted,” she further stated.

At last, she talked about their age gap. She wrote, “im over 30. Age gap is irrelevant. I’m a grown WOMAN.”

That response must have surely mummed people who had bitter things to say about the couple.

Scott Adams was previously married to Shelly Miles

Before getting married to Basham, Adams was married to Shelly Miles. The former couple tied the knot on a yacht in the San Francisco Bay in July 2006.

The wedding was also the first marriage for the Windham, NY, native, who was 49 years old at that time. However, Miles was getting married for the second time and was 37 years old — and had two children, a 6-year-old son, and an 8-year-old daughter, at that time.

But the two could not sustain their marriage and divorced in 2014.

Who are Scott Adams’ ex-wives?

By now, you have learned that Adams has been married twice – to Miles and Basham – and both marriages have ended in divorce. That said, who are the author’s ex-wives?

First, let’s learn more about Adams’ first ex-wife – Miles. To be fair, there aren’t many details available about her as she lives a private life. That said, Adams has revealed that Miles moved a block away from him, and they remained good friends even after their divorce.

Additionally, it has been reported that Miles was working as Adams’ personal assistant, per a 2017 Bloomberg article. The article mentioned that Adams had transformed a bar area into a display case for Dilbert books and paraphernalia, where Miles hosted spa days for friends.

Now, let’s move to Basham. After her marriage to Adams, people started asking, “Who is Scott Adams wife?” Well, on her Instagram bio, she mentioned she is a Pianist, Violinist, and Future Neurologist. In 2019, she stated on Instagram that she was pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience.

In her bio, she also stated that she is an “Aerobatic Pilot, Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor.” Speaking of Instagram, she has amassed a healthy fan-following on the photo-sharing platform, with more than 3.9 million followers. 

Moving to Basham’s family, she was raised by her parents in San Fransisco, California. Her father is of Italian and French descent, whereas her mother is of Middle Eastern and German descent. It’s currently unknown if she has any siblings.

Before her marriage to Adams, Basham was reportedly married to a man named Chad while she was still in college. With her first husband, she welcomed two children; Hazen and Marin Hilsabeck. The then-married couple eventually separated and divorced.

According to Schwartz’s IMDb profile, he met his future wife during their college years, and from their very first encounter, they shared an instant and profound connection that grew into a deep and enduring love.

However, their journey from romantic involvement to marriage was fraught with challenges, as they endured a long-distance relationship for numerous years. Despite the obstacles, the couple exchanged vows on May 2, 1999, surrounded by their close friend and family members.

Apart from these insights into the voice actor’s married life, there is scant additional information publicly available, as Schwartz has deliberately chosen to keep his personal life private.

Furthermore, his notable absence from social media platforms further complicates matters for fans seeking insight into his life. Like the privacy surrounding Schwartz’s marital life, details regarding whether the couple has welcomed children into their family remain undisclosed.

Jeremy Schwartz’s dating history

As mentioned above, Schwartz has been notably discreet about his personal life, choosing to keep it shielded from public scrutiny. Consequently, details about his past dating experiences and former girlfriend remain veiled in mystery.

Moreover, there have been no reports or rumors connecting him romantically to anyone in the public eye. It seems he was focused more on his career in the past rather than getting into any romantic relationships that might have caused distractions.

Schwartz spent his formative years in Plano, Texas. He initially faced academic challenges and earned lousy grades during his formative years at Plano Sr. High School in Plano, Texas.

Despite these initial setbacks, he pursued higher education for a year at the College of Santa Fe, where he discovered his passion for performance and excelled in the competitive arena of The National Forensic League.

Transitioning to his career endeavors, Schwartz became a founding company member of The Fire Department Theatre Company in New York City.

This esteemed company boasted a roster of talented individuals, including Jake Robards, Neil Labute, Denis O’Hare, Aidin Quinn, Janeane Garofalo, Jeff Goldblum, Kathleen Chalfant, and David Strathairn.

Embracing his knack for storytelling, Schwartz ventured into the world of television narration, garnering recognition for his role in the docudrama series Moonshiners.

The series depicts a diverse array of individuals living in Appalachia as they continue the longstanding tradition of producing moonshine, which has been handed down through generations for over 200 years.”

Moonshiners first aired on December 6, 2011, and has since become increasingly popular. Its twelfth season premiered on November 9, 2022, following a special episode on November 2, 2022.

Is Ruby Cruz Gay? Inside Her Sexuality and Dating Life

Ruby Cruz is loud and proud.

Is Ruby Cruz Gay? Inside Her Sexuality and Dating Life

Ruby Cruz is an American actress. She has appeared in several short films and television programs, including Mare of Easttown and Castle Rock, most famously as Kit Tanthalos in Willow and Hazel Callahan in Bottoms

Cruz is very open about her sexuality and does not hesitate to shy away from it. However, she is private about her dating life.

She has not revealed anything about having a boyfriend or a girlfriend. 

Is Ruby Cruz gay?

No, Cruz does not identify as gay. Similarly, she does not identify as lesbian.

Instead, she claims her sexuality is queer. She has noted several times how portraying Tanthalos in Willow helped her discover herself and her sexuality.

She told the Los Angeles Times, “I think for us, as queer people, it was really awesome to get the chance to explore queer friendships on screen. Those can be very confusing. For Kit, she definitely questioned a lot growing up. Do I want to be with this person, or do I want to be that person? That’s something that I feel like so many queer people go through.”

While Cruz is loud and proud about her sexuality, the same cannot be said for her dating life. She has kept her dating life private and not revealed any details.

At the time of writing, it is unknown if she is single or if she is dating her boyfriend or girlfriend. However, Cruz has dated in the past since she mentioned in a 2021 interview with Photobook Magazine that she went through a breakup while filming Bottoms.

She noted how much she loved filming the movie, but it had been a challenge since she broke up with her partner. “Another challenge was going through a breakup during a shoot and having to compartmentalize my complicated feelings, bury them, be recorded every day, and be funny,” she said.

“Ha-ha, I’m joking, but no I’m not. I’m sure a lot of people can relate; actors, service workers, people who work with kids. Going through personal stuff and being constantly “on” can be hard sometimes.”

Other than this, she has not said anything about her dating life.

Ruby Cruz’s career

Cruz began her acting career at an early age, playing a munchkin in her kindergarten performance of The Wizard of Oz. She fell in love with acting after being given a solo performance owing to the main munchkin becoming unwell and chose to pursue it professionally.

She grew up in Los Angeles and was exposed to a variety of theater and theatrical shows. As she grew older, her interest in acting intensified, and by high school, she was auditioning for films and television series.

She even enrolled at DePaul University to study theater, but when she was given the opportunity to perform, she quit the university to pursue her ambition. In 2018, she made her acting debut in the short film Aging Out, playing June. 

She also starred in the short film The Jump, where she portrayed Luna. Cruz appeared in three films in 2019 — Spin, a short film, Castle Rock, a psychological horror series, and The Lost Boys, a television feature. 

In 2020, she played Amanda Webster in the television series Blue Bloods and Bea in the short film God is a Lobster. She rose to prominence in 2021 with her portrayal as Jess Riley in the TV miniseries Mare of Easttown, for which she received significant praise. 

Talking about her experience of working with Kate Winslet, who portrayed the lead of Mare of Easttown, Cruz said how nervous she was leading up to the first day she got to work with her.

She noted how Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was her all-time favorite movie, and Winslet’s performance stayed with her. She added, “I just think she’s brilliant, which made me nervous. That was alleviated when I met her. I can’t speak more highly of a person, or of a scene partner.”

Moreover, Winslet was “so warm and inviting, poised and powerful, present with whoever she was speaking with,” that Cruz did not feel intimidated by her. Instead, it was easier working with her since she was “so committed and talented.”

“She really showed me the importance of supporting the actors you’re collaborating with. Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and creating something truthful takes a lot of giving and listening. Yeah, I hope I can meet her again and thank her one day for being a stand-up person,” Cruz stated.

Cruz’s reputation grew in the following years when she played Tanthalos in the 2022 TV series Willow and Hazel Callahan in the 2023 film Bottoms, which also marked her big-screen debut. 

In her interview with Photobook Magazine, the actress spoke highly of Willow and Bottoms. She credited Willow for helping her discover herself.

Willow was a unique experience because I was with Kit for almost a year of my life and discovered her as she discovered herself. I would say I like movies best though as the production is 9 months is long!” she pointed out.

She expressed her gratitude for the series and felt blessed to represent Tanthalos. “I really can’t begin to express how grateful I am for Kit and Jade. I feel remarkably privileged to be able to support myself by doing what I love to do, so on top of that, having the opportunity to make an actual difference in people’s lives is beyond my comprehension.”

Cruz agreed that there was a lack of representation of various sexuality in the Hollywood industry, especially queer. Her being one and representing one was a huge thing for her.

She added, “Being able to portray an authentic depiction of queer relationships was a huge deal for me. If I grew up with a princess like Kit, rooting for the relationship between her and her best friend. I feel like I would have understood myself a lot more, way sooner.”

She saw herself being represented and understood herself “a lot more, way sooner.” “There is such massive value in seeing yourself represented, and to be able to see the effect it’s had on the audience is so rewarding. For so many demographics, from race to sexuality to our strides in representation of little people. It’s given a purpose to what I do in a major way,” she stated.

Cruz also expressed her gratitude for being able to work in Bottoms. She said, “It’s my first movie, extremely gay, and an opportunity to work with a group of young, talented filmmakers and actors whom I admire. A dream of mine has always been to make funny movies, and when I would imagine this, I’d see my closest friends and me in them.”

She soon became close to her cast members, and now, she has friends for life with them. 

Cruz’s IMDb page has ten credits as of February 2023, including performances in films, short films, and television programs. She also has two planned acting projects: a short film named What Would Jesus Do? and a feature titled The Threesome.

Saoirse-Monica Jackson Got Engaged to Her Boyfriend Denis Sulta in 2023

Saoirse-Monica Jackson is a Northern Irish actress best known for playing Erin Quinn in Derry Girls from 2018 to 2022. She has also appeared in Coffee Wars, The Flash, The Doll Factory, and Upgraded.

As for her personal life, she has been dating her boyfriend, Denis Sulta, for quite some time. She often shares photos and videos with her partner on social media, including Instagram.

As a result, her fans and followers are delighted to know that she is living her life to the fullest with her boyfriend. Regardless of sharing everything about her dating life with her fans and followers, Jackson had hidden some details about it.

She had gotten engaged to Sulta in 2023 but did not reveal it until 2024. Here is all we know about the couple!

Saoirse-Monica Jackson and her boyfriend, Denis Sulta

It is unknown how Jackson and Sulta started dating or when they met. However, it seems like they started dating in early 2021.

In September 2021, Jackson and her boyfriend went public with their romance. Jackson confirmed their relationship by posting photographs of herself and her future husband on Instagram around the same time.

Since then, the couple has taken several journeys across the world. From attending Liverpool football matches, as documented on Sulta’s social media, to celebrating New Year’s Eve together in Mexico and traveling to Amsterdam. 

After dating for over two years, Jackson and Sulta took their relationship to a new level and got engaged. The two got engaged in 2023 but decided to reveal that they were soon to be wife and husband only in 2024.

On February 1, 2024, Jackson took to Instagram Stories to upload a snippet of Sulta’s interview with Metal Magazine, where he talked about their engagement. He answered, “The day I proposed to my fiancé Saoirse,” while talking about the best memory of 2023.

In 2024, he noted that he was looking forward to their wedding. He said, “Coming up with a new show, getting married, making some new exciting music, playing golf, eating stew, and playing the odd game of chess.”

At the time of writing, neither of the couple has revealed their wedding plans.

By the looks of it, Jackson’s boyfriend is head over heels for her. Jackson turned 30 in November 2023, and Sulta threw a massive birthday bash for her.

He surprised the actress as soon as she woke up because he decorated their house with balloons and presents. They then celebrated Jackson’s birthday party with their friends and loved ones.

Being the dotting boyfriend, Sulta shared all of it via his Instagram handle. He was seen with his arms wrapped charmingly over his other half, who appeared astonished by all of the affection.

Jackson took the stage alongside her soon-to-be husband to blow out the sparkler-style candles on an enormous cake. The exquisite cake was decorated with delicate pink frosting, flowers, and edible pearls, as well as an image of Jackson’s face in the center. 

On her big day, the actress looked stunning in a small black Clio Peppiatt short dress with a daring floral-embroidered cut. She matched the dress with a complementing bomber jacket and leopard print heels and completed the look with a birthday crown in her hair.

Her boyfriend, on the other hand, chose a black and white dramatic patterned shirt for the celebration. Sharing the photos on his Instagram, he captioned the post, “Happy 30th to the best thing in my life and on the planet full stop. What a weekend!”

All in all, the couple seemed to be enjoying their relationship more than ever.

Who is Saoirse-Monica Jackson’s soon-to-be husband?

Sulta, whose real name is Hector Barbour, is a Glasgow-based DJ and producer of house and dance music. He was born and reared in Anniesland, Glasgow’s West End. 

Sulta was raised by his mother, Muriel Gray, a Scottish broadcast journalist and the first female chair of the Glasgow School of Art’s board of governors, and his father, Hamish Barbour, a television producer and director.

His mother was also a broadcaster on the 1980s music show The Tube, exposing Sulta to the media and entertainment industries at a young age. According to MixMag, Sulta credits his musical inspirations to his father, who holds two degrees in the field. 

Talking about his father, Sulta said, “He’s a fantastic piano player; I’d hear him play things like ‘Birdland’ by Weather Report or ‘September’ by Earth, Wind & Fire; that jazzy, soulful stuff was big for him, and for me. Recently I’ve been playing ‘Let’s Go Round Again’ by Average White Band, which is one of his favorite songs, and an absolute belter.”

His father was the one who gave him a push to be a DJ. “He always told me it was an interesting way to think,” Sulta reminisced. “He made the comparison between maths, language, and music, between the way you learn all three.”

After he left university, Sulta battled with depression. He said, “I wasn’t very happy with what I was doing, I was unsure, I was frustrated, and at the same time I had this sense of entitlement: I felt that my problems were so important, and I resented my upbringing – all the young, middle-class insecurities.”

During that time, he was also taking a lot of drugs. He was spending his money on staying alive but did not know how to deal with his emotions or talk about them. 

“My mother and father were nothing but supportive, but as a young man, you feel it’s just you against the world. I was in an institution for people with mental health issues… it’s a period of my life that I don’t tend to talk about,” he added.

On his twenty-first birthday, his friend took him to the theater to see a show. There, he had an epiphany and realized that not everything had to be against him and his liking.

He had learned Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which bettered him, and he decided to be the opposite of what he used to be. He said, “I was making music as Atlus – it was angry, it was pissed off, and ‘Atlus’ backward is ‘Sulta.'”

“I needed something to go with it; ‘Denis’ sprung to mind, and that had a ring. I wanted to make music with a different sonic aesthetic, and a character to accompany it,” he added.

And hence came the name Denis Sulta. Currently, he identifies with his performance name and often draws massive audiences to clubs and festivals like Reading and Leeds.
