Sonders met Erik Kuselias (her first known lover) during her time in the Morning Drive. They started as co-hosts of the show and later became a couple despite Erik’s bad reputation. They dated for a while and later got married in 2012.
It was discovered later that Erik Kuselias, a known flirt who was also popular for having a lot of unnecessary affairs, was already married with kids when he got engaged and walked down the aisle with the beautiful Holly Sonders. This led to their divorce in 2016. Sonders said nothing about the divorce until she responded to a tweet made by one of Kuselias’ with, “I filed for divorce over a year ago…we have not been together in a very long time. Thanks.”
After her divorce, Holly Sonders moved on with her romantic life. The news of her new relationship was confirmed in 2019 after she tweeted about her new lover, the then head coach of the Cardinals. His name is Kliff Kingsbury. She met Kingsbury while working as a sideline reporter for the Big 12 Games. Kingsbury was divorced, so the romance was untainted this time. However, the relationship was relatively too short as it ended quickly.
Holly Sonders’ resilience certainly transcends her career as she found herself with another significant other in Dave Oancea, popularly known as Vegas Dave, in December 2019. The duo met at a strip club at Crazy Horse, and they had a fast-growing relationship that quickly became an engagement. Right in the middle of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the couple quarantined together in Mexico, and they shared loved-up pictures of themselves amidst the lockdown. After the lockdown, things went down south for the couple upon Dave’s return to his parents, leaving Sonders alone.
