April Warned Theresa About Marrying Gerry – Gives a Statement After Backlash

Golden Bachelor contestant and Theresa’s friend, April Kirkwood, commented on the formers Instagram post after the Golden couple announced they were getting divorced just three months after they got married.

Let’s first look at Theresa Nist’s Instagram post:

“To everyone who has expressed love, support and kindness to me I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are all such wonderful human beings,” Theresa captioned her post. “It means the world to me that you took the time to reach out to me, whether in person, on the phone, by text or by direct message. You are all so kind to do so.”

“I wish you the very best,” April wrote in the Instagram comment section. “I truly tried to tell you, but this was your lesson to experience. Much love!”

She quickly apologized for her comment after facing some backlash from the Bachelor Nation.

“I care for all women in the world. I wasn’t us all to learn from each other and be smart and empowered,” April responded. “Lessons offer us the opportunity. We’ve all had our hearts broken, what we do with it is entirely up to us! Let’s rock this world Ladies. Therese [sic] can lead the way!”

“I would like to publicly apologize for my error in judgment. I sincerely meant no ill will,” April wrote. “I wish all women only peace and power to be their best selves. This was not the one for me. Much love and gratitude for understanding.”

Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist announced their split on Good Morning America, while adding that this decision was “mutual.” 

However, sources close to Gerry’s circle claim it was in fact Gerry who wasn’t happy with Theresa.

“Gerry and Theresa are giving up on their marriage, but they both weren’t on the same page as they’d like you to believe,” reveals an insider source to Life & Style.

The insider also claimed it was Theresa who did the heavy lifting while trying to keep the flame alive.

“Yes, families and distance played a part, but Theresa really loved Gerry,” the insider claimed. “She wanted to work at it more than him.”

Susan Noles, who officiated Gerry and Theresa’s wedding, explains what she thinks caused the split.

The Golden Bachelor contestant responded to a fan’s inquisitive comment on the Instagram account for the “Golden Hour” podcast she co-hosts with Kathy Swarts.

“Why did they break up so quick?” a Bachelor fan asked.

To which Susan simply replied: “Neither one of them can leave their family.”
