Kaley Cuoco was 'Really, Really, Really Struggling' During Divorce

Kaley Cuoco was 'Really, Really, Really Struggling' During Divorce

Kaley Cuoco opened up about her struggles after she separated from Karl Cook, her husband of three years, in September 2021.

The 36-year-old actress was filming the second season of The Flight Attendant, but reached out for help quickly.

“One month in, I had an intervention on myself in my trailer — all my producers were in there. And I said, ‘I need help,’” Kaley recalled to Variety. “It was interesting to say that out loud. And to have everyone be like, ‘Yes, we want to help!’ I’m a working woman, and so independent, and I really take pride in being able to do everything. Well, this time, I literally couldn’t.”

“It was one of the hardest years of my life. Not only personally, but doing this character that was so tormented,” Kaley continued. “It was the first time that I started therapy — I’ve been very open about that. I started at the beginning of Season 2, just because I was going through so much right before we started shooting. It was horrible. And I developed a stress rash that ran all the way down my body for three straight months that wouldn’t go away. I literally, like, had fire on my leg for three months. I could barely walk.”

“It was really a super dark time,” Kaley said. “I just didn’t know how to deal with it. I was throwing myself into work to deny my depression, and how upset I was. Unfortunately, the character was so depressed that it wasn’t helping me! I was really, really, really struggling. A lot of tears.”

Kaley recently thanked her boyfriend Tom Pelphrey for “saving her” on his 40th birthday.
