News of Sophie Monk ending her engagement to Jimmy Esebag was almost as surprising as when she first announced she was going to marry the LA businessman. She revealed she was newly-single at a Sydney taping of Chelsea Handler’s show Chelsea Lately two weeks ago, and yesterday morning she appeared on Kyle Sandiland and Jackie O’s breakfast radio show, where her good friend Kyle said, “You’re single now. What happened?” Without revealing too many details, Sophie explained, “I think I went too hard, too fast, for both of us, we both did, and then I came home, and then yeah, that’s about it. I don’t wanna talk too much on it ’cos I feel bad he [Jimmy] doesn’t have the microphone.”
Jackie added her own two cents and told Sophie that she had a theory that “sometimes they’ll [Sophie’s boyfriends] propose to you and you don’t wanna be mean, so sometimes you’ll say yes,” to which Sophie laughed and agreed. As for what could’ve been a factor to Sophie accepting Jimmy’s proposal so quickly, she admitted, “I got carried away. It’s not reality, LA. And you get a bit excited,” also noting that being far away from family, friends, and feeling lonely in general “confuses everything.” She did reveal that she’s working on a new underwear line, which should keep her busy for the moment.
