Shields talks about a breakup that happens before the two tied the knot. She feared that she was “rebounding, or whatever they call it, because I hadn’t spent any time sowing my oats. I was like, ‘Oh I can sow my oats now, this is what I’m going to do. I’m going to sow oats.’ “

Things didn’t turn out the way that she believed. Shields revealed that “there was not one oat that would be sowed. I literally got, like, rejected.… People were like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.’ I was like, ‘Oh, okay.’ “

Fresh Starts

Eventually, Brooke decided to start dating Chris again after she discovered that he was who she wanted to talk with every single day.

“I was calling him all the time, and he said, ‘You broke up with me, this is the way it works. You don’t get to call me every day, because you broke up with me. So don’t call me every day.’ ” To which Shields replied, “”But I want to talk to you.”

 It “doesn’t work like that,” Henchy told her.

“I don’t want to lose this person, so I better behave,” Brooke recalls telling herself.

Shields shared that laughter has been a key part of their relationship. “Every time I finish with my therapist, Chris is like, ‘Are you fixed? You’re good? We’re good?'”
