‘Golden Bachelor’ Gerry Turner, Theresa Nist reveal if they have prenup after divorce bombshell — forced to give Neil Lane ‘ring back’


“Golden Bachelor” fans were stunned when stars Gerry Turner and wife Theresa Nist announced they are splitting after just three months of marriage on Friday.

The reality TV personalities appeared on “Good Morning America” where they revealed their decision to divorce.

Nist and Turner announced their decision to divorce on Friday.

The pair tied the knot in a Palm Springs ceremony on Jan. 4, which aired live on ABC.

Now, certain questions remain amid the breakup. Did Turner, 72, and Nest, 70, sign a prenup before the nuptials and what will happen to her engagement ring?

Nist confessed on “GMA” that unfortunately her Neil Lane diamond band will no longer be hers.

“I think that’s the rule, I think I have to give this ring back. Sad to say,” she sighed.

Turner interjected: “But, you know what, we don’t have to give back the memories.”

ABC anchor Juju Chang then revealed that yes, the ex-couple did sign a prenuptial agreement, adding that they “highly recommend” that others do the same.

The circlet is surrounded by two baguette cut diamonds, and further set with 128 small round stones, coming out to 3.15 karats.

Turner opened up to People in December about the glistening rock, saying that the “symbolism of it is so important.”

“It was just like, the minute she slipped it on, again, it was like, ‘Oh, my god, this is that joyful happiness that I want to feel, that I want everyone to see,’” he said.

Famed jewelry designer Neil Lane also gave some insight into the outlet about the marriage token he created for the couple, adding that the “brilliance” of the “vintage-inspired” rock reminded Turner of his beloved.

“The design, the elegance, it’s not simple, but it looks at first very elegantly simple on the top. But then when you hold it to the side you see how complex it gets,” Lane went on.

“We just feel like it’s best for the happiness of each of us to live apart,” Turner said on “GMA” April 12. “I still love this person. There’s no doubt in my mind.” Disney

In their emotional interview on April 12, Turner explained that he “had a number of heart to heart conversations” with Nist about their relationship.

“[We] looked closely to our living situations,” he said, adding that they wanted to “dissolve” their marriage.

“We just feel like it’s best for the happiness of each of us to live apart,” he said. “I still love this person. There’s no doubt in my mind.”

The pair held hands during the sit-down and admitted they are both still looking for love — just not with each other.
