As far as we know they didn’t get back together, and is quite uncertain if Diem is dating someone at this moment. She sure talked about feeling ready to have a partner in life last September, where she also talked briefly about Chris Tamburello..
“I am becoming more and more ready to have a partner in life. A partner who has his own goals and his own dreams yet loves and respects the passion I have for my own.
I think the best relationships are those of two independent individuals who become greater and stronger when they are together.”
“They can admit their shortcomings and together they balance each other out. No one is perfect but like that country song says, I want a man who stands beside me, not in front of or behind me.” What a beautiful thing to aspire to create – a partnership, a teammate in life where you both want the other to reach their dreams and goals.”
“I had an amazing boyfriend for over four years that the public has probably never seen. I wouldn’t put up pictures of us on any social media site, or really talk about him in interviews. He was successful and because I felt I was still struggling with my goals and dreams, I wanted to feel independent from his help.”
“I am realizing now that the “tough girl” stuff was my way of keeping my control and maintaining my distance to safeguard myself from getting hurt. Sadly not showing him that carefree, screaming from the rooftop “I Love You,” couch-jumping love, ended up destroying us.”
Diem girl! we all love you dearly, stay strong, baby girl, you will beat this. Our love and prayers are and forever will be always with you!!
