How good is it when you have someone of the same profession and understands you in a way that no one does?Many couples work together in the office, but there are only a few couples who work at screaming racecars at 200 mph.Danica Patrick “had a feeling” all day that Ricky Stenhouse Jr.would be able to win his first NASCAR Cup Series race.Besides the inherent attention from being the first woman to lead either the Indianapolis 500 or Daytona 500, Patrick also thrusts herself into the limelight by hawking “athleisure” (via her Warrior clothing line), healthy food (a cooking show seems a given for the former winner of a celebrity edition) and life coaching (her how-to book “Pretty Intense” is coming in January).It would seem understandable (perhaps even expected by many) for some measure of resentment to manifest itself for Stenhouse.Unconfirmed reports are saying that Tony Stewart was already unhappy with Patrick this season because of her performance and the way that she raced Stenhouse Jr. Stewart felt that Patrick cut Stenhouse more slack on the track than she did her Stewart-Hass teammates.
It always has been how he nonchalantly and non-combatively handles the dynamics of a relationship fraught with the stress of disproportionate celebrity.
Patrick announced news of their divorce on Facebook on Nov.
20 which is just one day after their anniversary that she was divorcing Hospenthal, the guy who she married in 2005.
The marriage came after a short engagement that the couple decided to keep private in an effort to avoid distractions on the track.
The two exchanged their vows in small ceremony that included family and close friends.Although there is no official word as to why they chose to tie the knot when they did, one would have to assume that they figured there wasn’t any reason to put it off any longer.
