‘It’s due time that I share with my Brain Candy Brainiacs… more about my own evolution,’ said Sarah as she segued into the topic with her co-host
‘You guys are probably like, “Where’s Landon?” and, “She hasn’t been talking about him,”‘ she continued.
‘And that’s because we’re gonna get a divorce, or we’re getting one. Going through the whole process.’
She didn’t have anything negative to say about Landon, but explained that a couple could ‘be really good, but not a good fit.’

According to the Real World: Brooklyn star, some time on her own during a road trip helped her find clarity about the state of her marriage.
‘It felt like every day I was moving a little bit a little bit away from… who I am,’ she explained.
‘I was like, I just have to tell him that I love him, but I’m just not in love with him. It’s real hard to do.’
‘It’s kind of like a palm tree and an oak tree,’ the reality star continued. ‘Like they’re both strong trees, but if you put them next to each other, one’s not going to survive.’

In addition to her podcasting and TV appearances, Sarah recently earned a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, which surely gave her a lot of insights into the health of her own relationship.
She and Landon were got engaged in 2014, when he proposed to her at LA’s Magic Castle, and the two were married the following year.
They put their family tragedies in the public spotlight in 2018, when the Real World star suffered a miscarriage.
‘It was so exciting, it was great. It was so hard to keep my mouth shut,’ she said on her podcast at the time.
‘But, then I got another surprise when I went in for my first ultrasound at 12 weeks and the baby didn’t have a heartbeat, so no more baby and I had a miscarriage, so that was really hard.’

She credited her husband at the time with helping her to grieve.
‘I think for the first time in my entire life, I felt sorrow. I had felt grief before. I felt loss,’ she said. ‘Landon was the one who said … you felt grief, this is sorrow. You can’t explain it away.’
Sarah is best known for her nine different appearances on The Challenge (formerly Real World/Road Rules Challenge, and Road Rules: All Stars before that).
She won the competition twice, most famously on her last appearance in 2016, when Johnny ‘Bananas’ Devenanzio decided to keep the prize money all for himself.
