Terri Carrington is the former wife of the well-known American stand-up comedian Rodney Carrington. Apart from her celebrity marriage, she also asserts herself as a speech pathologist, although it was her marriage that brought her into the limelight. After the couple divorced in 2012, she currently lives in Oklahoma with her three sons. Not much is known about her private life, except what she tells on social media. Here is everything we could find out about her so far.
Terri Carrington: Bio
She was born on November 18, 1970, and was given the name Terri Shae Lockhart. She grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma. Details of her early background or information about her family are not known. However, from her social media activities and her profile on her Twitter page, where she noted that she is a singer, dancer, and writer, one could conclude that she was quite artistically inclined in her youth.
That Terri’s fame may be related to her marriage to the famous stand-up comedian Rodney Carrington, as she led a very private life before she came into the limelight. She is a licensed speech and language pathologist and has worked for Captioncall, Senior Suites, qualified nursing, and long-term care community. She is also a self-proclaimed social activist, an aspiring chef, and a wine connoisseur.
Husband, Marriage, and Divorce
Rodney Carrington is a famous stand-up comedian, actor, and country singer. He was born on October 19, 1968, in Longview, Texas. He was a leading actor in the ABC sitcom Rodney (2004 to 2006) and also starred in the 2008 film Beer for My Horses.
Terri met her ex-husband in college, and the two of them began dating shortly thereafter and married years later, in 1993. The former couple had three sons: Zac, Sam, and George before their marriage broke up in 2010. Rodney and Terri Carrington separated in 2010, and Terri filed for divorce, which was officially finalized two years later after they had been married for nearly two decades. The reason for their separation was not disclosed to the public. There is speculation, however, that it was Rodney’s long hours at work and absences from home that put a strain on the marriage and eventually tore it apart. It may be that Terri could no longer bear to stay in the marriage alone, so she decided to end the marriage.
As for her divorce, the fans were struck by the blow when news emerged from the blues that the seemingly perfect couple was heading for the breakup of the marriage. Rodney, who felt that he had always done his best as husband and father of his three sons, and who still hasn’t figured out why Terri Carrington made the decision to divorce him, was the person most affected by the news. According to the comedian, he was so committed to his marriage and family that he saw the divorce as a severe blow. At the time, he felt that his marriage was doing really well. There was a time when he was still in his sitcom, he had to leave the show because he didn’t want to stay away from his family. He tried everything he could to save their relationship, but his efforts couldn’t prevent the upcoming event.
After their divorce, they maintained a friendly relationship for the benefit of their children, for whom they have equal custody. Rodney also revealed that he behaved like a teenager the year after their separation, struggling with his weight and depression during that time. There was no news or even rumors of another relationship or marriage on either side.
Her Net Worth
Terri Carrington’s net worth was estimated by some sources to be $1 million. This information may still be under review as details of her income, assets, liabilities, and expenses are not readily available. However, her ex-husband has assets of $6 million.
