Sun­nie Khakh, 30

EX­EC­U­TIVE AS­SIS­TANT

WHO - - Television -

Even be­fore she mar­ried her child­hood sweet­heart, Sun­nie strug­gled with not be­ing tra­di­tional enough for her hus­band’s par­ents.

Did you worry about of­fend­ing your fam­ily, go­ing on the show? Def­i­nitely. It was one of the main rea­sons I was hes­i­tant. I pulled out a lot of times and was like, “I don’t think this is right for me.” But then I said, “You know what? This is why I should do it.” Be­cause it’s not ac­cepted. Women should not feel scared or em­bar­rassed to have gone through a divorce or date again. So I’m go­ing to try to break that stigma, but let’s see how that goes.

Are the other girls like-minded?

That’s why we get along so well. We’re all strong. We’ve all been through s--t. And we just want to help other women, and each other.

Now, what do you do when you get the chance to catch up?

We love to go out to din­ner and have a nice glass of wine. Just catch up, and talk crap.

“In our [In­dian] cul­ture, divorce is a no-no,” says Sun­nie. “It was ac­tu­ally a re­ally, re­ally hor­ri­ble time.”
