Marriage is a holy bond, and it takes quite a lot to keep up and maintain a smooth flow to it. But when the sacred bond is broken, and you suffer separation from your partner, you are bound to get hurt.

Rick's Married Life And His Famous Divorce:

It was June 2016 when Rick and his then-girlfriend of four months decided to elope to Las Vegas and get married after the pair failed to reach the final table at the 2016 World Series of Poker held in Rio. Rick and Beth Shak, who is a famous poker player and also a TV personality decided to tie the knot and share vows with "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" host Robin Leach as the witness for the ceremony.

The two were even open about their love over on social medias.

Shak described their marriage in such words,

'I didn’t think men like him existed anymore! He is caring, considerate and so warm. I’ve never been lucky in love, but meeting in him proved that my luck has changed, and we are now looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together.' 

However, just after months, the two were put to the test regarding their relationship and after failing to come out of that phase unharmed, the two decided to divorce. Sources say Beth was the one who filed for the divorce citing 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the death of their love and marital life.

Rick describes the travesty in such words,

'I’m heartbroken our marriage didn’t work out and I only wish her happiness,'

Shak, however, did not speak much about the breaking down of the marriage.

But this was not the first divorce for both of them as Rick was once married to fellow TV reporter Penny Daniels. The couple shares two children together, both daughters Veronica (born 1991) and Shoshana (born 1996). Rick frequently keeps on posting about his daughters over on his social media sites.


Happy Birthday to my now very old daughter! May you always impress and inspire ♥?

Beth Shak was previously married to hedge fund manager Daniel Shak before calling it quits back in 2012. The divorce between the Shaks was controversial as Mr. Shak claimed that Beth owed him 35% of her shoe collection worth a million as that was hidden from Daniel when thrashing out a divorce settlement worth $3.25million.

Beth though termed this as a harassment and vowed to fight her ex-husband which later prompted Daniel to drop the lawsuit.

Everyone now seems to have moved to separate paths, and that's right for them with regards to their future.

A gutsy reporter like Rick, who has been to wars in countries like Afghanistan, Israel, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, and Libya to cover vital news is sure to get paid with a high salary. But still, no official statement has come forth from the man himself.
