The two dated for over a year before embarking on a marital journey together.

Did you know it was Rhonda’s second marriage? She even had a daughter from her previous husband. Did Worthey also share any children with Troy? She has been a low-key figure since her divorce from her second hubby, Troy, but made headlines in 2012, just a year after their split, after being caught intoxicated in public.

Let’s further explore the life of Rhonda and her current whereabouts in the following article!

Who is Troy Aikman’s First Wife, Rhonda Worthey?

She joined the office in Sep 2023 and is still working with it. Furthermore, Troy’s ex is also a member of DuraServ Corp, an industrial door supplier in Carrollton, Texas.

Rhonda Spent Over Seven Years Working With Dallas Cowboys

Prior to joining Key, Troy’s ex-wife used to work for the Dallas Cowboys and it was also where the two met each other. She joined the team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex in 1992 as executive assistant to the Chief Financial Officer and continued the role for the next five years until 1997. During that same period, Rhonda was also an accounts receivable/payable manager.

Worthey Met Her Ex-Husband Troy While In the Dallas Cowboys

As mentioned earlier, Worthey and her former husband Aikman met for the first time while both of them were in the Cowboys. To be more precise, the former flames first laid eyes on each other at the team’s practice facility.

Aikman played for the team throughout his NFL career from 1989 to 2000. He got six Pro Bowl selections, accumulating three Super Bowl rings during his thrilling career with the Cowboys. After his retirement, Aikman became the color commentator of the NFL on Fox until 2021. He now also holds the same role in Monday Night Football.

Rhonda Worthey and Troy Aikman’s Wedding Was Held In A North Dallas Suburb

After being in a relationship for over a year, Rhonda and her then-husband Troy eventually decided to get married on April 8, 2000. They wed on Saturday afternoon in a private wedding ceremony, held at Aikman’s home in Plano, a north Dallas suburb. Their wedding was a cozy affair, only attended by the duo’s family and close friends.

In the early morning, charter buses brought guests in wedding attire to the house, surrounded by a 6-foot-high black wrought-iron fence. The main gate was decorated with yellow and pink flowers.

Although their nuptial was an intimate gathering only of their close ones, the duo later invited a large group of people to a reception family. Tim Quintana, a member of Aikman’s security staff said that the player “is very, very happy.”

In fact, Aikman and his then-wife, Worthey didn’t want to leak their wedding date but Fox broadcaster, John Madden accidentally leaked it.

Troy, regarded as one of Dallas’ most eligible bachelors threw a huge rehearsal dinner party on a Friday night. About 29 guests were present at the party. Among them were the Cowboys coaches and teammates including Daryl Johnston, Bill Bates, Emmitt Smith, special teams coach, Joe Avezzano, Redskins head coach, Norv Turner, and more.

As soon as the news of the rehearsal dinner spread in the area, a number of young women gave a call to the restaurant hoping to catch a glimpse of Aikman, the eligible bachelor. Nevertheless, since the restaurant was already full of crowds, no one got permission to enter.

They Have Two Years Of Age Gap

Yes, there is a two-year age gap between Rhonda and her former husband Troy. Interestingly enough, both of them were born in the same month, November. The former quarterback, Troy, born on November 21, 1966, is 57 years old now, whereas, his ex-spouse Rhonda, born in November 1968 is 55 years old.

Worthey hails from Paris, Texas, while her former spouse, Aikman is from West Covina, CA.

Besides, Rachel also got married in October 2021. Her mother posted a bridal photo of her girl on her Facebook.

Their Separation & Divorce Settlement

Rhonda and her former hubby, Troy announced their separation on January 24, 2011. The former Cowboys quarterback released a statement saying,

This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate.

He further added,

We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family’s privacy during this period of adjustment.

Documents obtained by TMZ show that their marriage officially ended on April 12, 2011.

Besides, the former duo had already divided their family properties even before their separation. Later, Rhonda reportedly gave up her share in the family mansion and also took her name off the ownership documents for the family mansion in Dallas in November 2010.

But, just a few months after their divorce, Worthey bought a house for roughly $1.5 million in Dallas, Texas. Additionally, in 2012, the former Cowboys publicist also received $1.75 million from her ex-husband as part of their marital property agreement.

Is Rhonda Worthey Remarried After Divorce?

No, Worthey has yet to give marriage a second chance. She seems to be enjoying her single life since her divorce from Aikman. Unlike her, her ex-husband Aikman has been involved in a couple of romantic relationships since their separation.

For the second time, Troy went on to marry high-end fashion retailer Catherine “Capa” Mooty, on 1st September 2017. They wed at the Biltmore Four Seasons in Montecito, California. Like his previous marriage, it also didn’t last long and it came to know the two officially divorced in July 2023.

Following his divorce from his 2nd wife, the former NFL star was said to be linked to a girl named Haley Clark.

Worthey Was Said To Be Appear in Real Housewives Of Dallas

Back in March 2012, according to RealityTea, Rhonda was said to make an appearance on the then-upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Dallas. She was listed as one of its cast members.

Despite early confirmation of her role in the show, Worthey didn’t make the final cut. Although the show was initially rumored to premiere in early 2013, it eventually aired in April 2016.

Rhonda Worthey Was Arrested For Public Intoxication 

Just a year after her divorce from her ex-husband, Troy, Rhonda was arrested for being drunk in public in a high school parking lot, in Murphy, Texas on 27th August 2012. Cops said they found two water bottles inside the car filled with a liquid that smelled like booze.

Officers also discovered a prescription drug that is generally used to treat seizures and panic disorders as well as a small pooch.

After her arrest, Rhonda desperately requested an officer for her freedom and said, “Do you know what this is gonna do to him? Troy?”

The cop replied,  “I have no idea. You can have him call me.”

She further said, “If you do this, it’ll be on the TV and it’ll hurt … it’s gonna hurt Troy, it’s gonna hurt me, is that what your goal is?”

However, the cops didn’t grant her plea but told her, “I’m just doing my job.”

At the time, an unknown male who claimed to be her boyfriend reported that Worthey was going towards her mother’s house but got lost in the way.

Following the incident, the former Cowboys publicist was taken to the police station and then released from custody.

She was later charged with public intoxication and pleaded no contest in exchange for a month of probation.

Where Does Rhonda Worthey Live Now?
