6 Facts About Rush Limbaugh’s Wife

Rush’s wife was born into a well-to-do family. The names of her parents are Penny Rogers (mother) and Richard Douglas Rogers (father). Douglas is a naval officer – he is a graduate of U.S Naval Academy. He is said to have also graduated in the same class as former American Senator John McCain. Kathryn’s mother once served as a diplomat in the State Department. The couple, in the course of this duty, moved to cities like London (United Kingdom), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) as well as countries like Guinea-Bissau (in West Africa), and the Philippines (in Asia).

2. She is Rush Limbaugh’s fourth wife
Prior to Kathryn Adams Limbaugh’s marriage to Limbaugh, the former had married and divorced three times. Rush had his first wedding on the 24th of September 1977, when he said “I Do” to Roxy Maxine McNeely, who was serving as a sales secretary at a radio station WHB in Kansas City, Missouri at the time. The event took place at the Centenary United Methodist Church which is located in the TV-radio host’s hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. However, their marital relationship only lasted for three years – the couple separated in March 1980 and officially divorced on July 10, 1980. McNeely is said to have cited ‘incompatibility’ as the reason for filing for divorce.
Not long after Limbaugh moved on, he met a young woman called Michelle Sixta at Kansas City Royals stadium. The two immediately fell in love and decided to get married to seal their love for each other. Their wedding ceremony took place at the Stadium Club in 1983. Five years later, Sixta left Rush, which led the couple to officially separate from each other in 1990.
The radio personality entered his third marriage with former aerobics instructor Marta Fitzgerald in the year 1994. The two met in 1990 on the online service CompuServe and divorced ten years later (in 2004). Marta, who had previously married thrice before meeting and marrying Limbaugh, did not have any child with Rush while their relationship lasted.
Regardless of three failed marriages, Rush Limbaugh wasn’t ready to spend the rest of his life single. He kept pushing until the year 2010 when he eventually tied the knot for the fourth time to Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, whom he met in 2004 while attending a celebrity golf tournament. The couple’s lavish wedding took place at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach precisely on the 5th of June and was attended by a slew of celebrities including English pianist/composer/singer Sir Elton John who entertained guests with a gorgeous rendition of some of his songs for a reported $1 million fee.
3. Cheating Scandal
While gloating over their 7th wedding anniversary, Rush Limbaugh got astonished when he learned the news of his wife cheating on him with some married men and athletes. As reported on several sites on June 21, 2017, the accomplished writer/editor is said to have cheated on her husband the day Rush went to visit her father who was battling cancer at the time. Kathryn was also reported to have even brought some of these guys to her husband’s private jet plane. In the wake of the damning news, the media personality banned his sweetheart from using his private planes and also hired private detectives to spy on her.
4. Divorce Issues
Upon learning about his wife’s infidelity, the radio host immediately started preparing for divorce settlements. However, the one major challenge he’s been facing since he started the process is that he did not create a prenup agreement/prenuptial agreement with his wife after their wedding, which obviously puts his massive fortune on risk. Nevertheless, Rush is still working on how to officially end his marital relationship with Kathryn Adams Limbaugh.
5. She is currently living with her mother
Following Kathryn Adams Limbaugh’s separation from her husband, Mrs. Limbaugh decided to move into her mother’s hotel room in New York. It’s not known exactly when she would be leaving as she is yet to reveal her future plans for herself and marriage. Nonetheless, she could possibly join her husband in his oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach, Fla should the TV host change his mind about divorcing his beautiful wife.
6. Kathryn has no children till date
Until the time Kathryn’s cheating scandal hit the public, the writer was living happily with her husband. Throughout the years they lived together, their intimacy did not produce any offspring and the absence of kids in their home did not in any way impact their relationship negatively.
