Marriage

Andie has previously been married twice.

She first wed Paul Qualley in 1986 and together they have three children: Margaret, Rainey and Justin.

They were married for over a decade before divorcing in the late 90s.

In 1999, her sister Julia helped reconnect her with former high school classmate, Rhett Hartzog.

Rhett was a businessman and they married in 2001 before divorcing three years later.

Speaking about her two divorces, she told The Washington Post: “It’s not really something I like to talk about. Divorce is horrible. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. I don’t think it’s anything that’s ever completely resolved.”

She added: “I can usually tell when a woman is going through a divorce because they look so gaunt and tired and sad. It’s just a huge sadness. It’s horrible. It’s like death. You mourn, but the person’s still there.”
