Television and radio host Erik Kuselias won a fortune when he got engaged to Holly Sonders, a successful golf analyst for the Fox Sports’ golf coverage team. 

Everyone was shocked when Erik, in his forties, announced the 26-year-old (then) hottie as his wife. 

Let's see whether they're still in a relationship.

Erik Kuselias' Married Life With His Wife 

The former Pro Football Talk host, Erik Kuselias, got married to the American professional golfer, Holly Sonders, but the couple kept their marriage date a secret. Erik and Holly announced their engagement in 2012 after making several public appearances and flirting.

Erik met his wife, Holly, while working at the Gold Channel. Erik’s wife, Holly Sonders, is recognized as one of the most beautiful women in Golf. 

Holly Sonders is quite famous in her own right. Before gaining her identity as an ESPN journalist, she was reputed in the field of Golf. She was applauded when she played Golf in Michigan, but she switched to journalism after her knee surgery.

She then worked on the Golf Channel in 2011 and became a prominent figure in American Golf and was featured on multiple shows such as “Morning Drive,” “School of Golf,” and “Playing Lessons with the Pros,” and landed herself on the cover of Golf Digest in May 2013.

She eventually moved to ESPN in 2014 and covered the multiple US Opens for both Male and females. 

Holly is also featured as one of the most beautiful women in Gold by, reappearing on their rankings in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Meanwhile, Erik has a bad reputation in the industry as ‘the biggest douchebag in the place.'

Erik drunkenly blurted out, "I would like to f**k you" to a female ESPN employee at a Super Bowl Monday Night Football party. The ESPN employee reported his behavior to the higher-ups, which resulted in Erik's suspension.

As a result of this incident, Holly decided to hire a private investigator to learn more about her husband Erik’s habits. At that time, Erik and his wife were on break for a while. 

After completing the investigation, Holly found him having an extramarital affair with his co-worker, Stephania Bell.

Following the evidence, Erik’s wife, Holly, revealed of getting a divorce. She announced that she filed for divorce in 2016 and that the marriage had split a long time ago in a tweet on August 22, 2017.

Erik and Holly officially got divorced in 2017. 

Everyone saw it coming; poor Holly couldn’t have kept up with the radio hosts’ indecent behavior forever. But, on the other hand, the former couple didn’t share any children, so the separation must have been easier in comparison.

If a child were involved, the estranged pair would have to keep in contact as a co-parent. However, as there was no child involved, the obligation of communication won’t exist.

Regardless of their failing marriage, Erik and Holly found the love of their life.

Erik And His Ex-Wife Moving On

Holly Sonders met the love of her life after her unsuccessful marriage to Erik.  She is currently dating American boxer, Oscar De La Hoya. She is so in love that she got a picture tattoo of him on her back, implying that he will be her forever.

It's unclear how the two met or what their relationship's history is. Holly and her beau, on the other hand, may have met and finally connected during a sporting event because they both work in the sports industry.

Holly has also dated Kliff Kingsbury, the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. On January 8, 2019, she revealed her relationship with the attractive hunk with a Tweet welcoming him to his new work as a coach.

Meanwhile, Holly was not Erik’s first wife; Erik was previously married to Kristen Kuselias, with whom he has a son named Troy,  born in 2006. 

But now, Erik is in a relationship with Stephania Bell. Yes, the same girl with whom he cheated on Holly.
