It is unclear exactly when Kim and Kory divorced. Presumably they separated in 2005. Although the family blog started in October 2004, she has never appeared on it. Instead, it seems to be a blog about a single dad navigating his life with his two daughters. Kim is mentioned as being Kory's wife in his step mother's obituary on December 29th, 2004.[9] However in his mother’s obituary in July 2011, Kory and the girls are mentioned alone, despite Kory having remarried in 2009.[10]
