During the podcast, Kristin talked about calling off their engagement and their split.

‘Actually I called from the engagement’ [for] for the same reason I got divorced, and so I think if there’s anything that can do something about that, you can’t ignore red flags,” she told Call Your Daddy podcast host Alexandra Cooper.

“I was 23 when I met Jay, I was a baby and at that point in my life, getting married and having children was the next natural step. I had pulled everything out of my system and I don’t regret anything and I’m grateful for our time together,” she said in the podcast, via TooFab.

She continued: ‘I just think, now I’m dating so differently and I see s**ta miles away. And now it’s like “No, I’m not going to take that.” It’s a big turn off instead of being, “Maybe he’ll change, I can fix him.”

Although the star called the relationship “toxic,” she said she wanted to be careful with what she said, considering she has three children with him.

Kristin and Jay are parents to sons Camden, nine, and Jaxon, eight, and daughter Saylor, six.

“Since I have three children with him, I am very careful about what I say. If you and I didn’t have microphones for us, I’d fucking tell you. But that’s their dad and my eldest Googles us now. I just want to be very careful. Even if I don’t say anything, the headlines will say I screwed up somehow. It was poisonous, period, end of story, that’s all I need to say,” Kristin said.

“I hope he finds someone, I really do. I want him to be happy. My children benefit from that. I hope he remarries. I really. The first time I heard it, of course, it stung a little. I really want all my exes to be happy and have a great relationship.”

She called ending their marriage “very scary,” a decision that “took her a few years to pull the trigger.”

“It was just time. Nothing important happened. At the end it was just time.. It’s the scariest thing there is. It’s always the saddest. I mean, there are so many emotions, but it can also be the best.”

Kristin has no regrets and is “thankful” for their time together because of their three children.

During the interview, she also talked about a recent date she had with an actor – though she didn’t reveal who – and how awful it was.

She said he “slammed drinks” and then tried to show off his stunts at a restaurant.

“He slammed drinks like slamming drinks and at one point he told me he was doing his own stunts. We sat at the bar, it’s damn full, he gets up to perform a stunt he had done, accidentally bumps into the waiter. I was like “Please sit down” just for commotion in the middle of Laurel Hardware. Re-enact a stunt in the middle of a packed restaurant. It was terrible,” she said.
