Former Alabama first lady Dianne Bentley says she’s “doing fine” days after her divorce from Gov. Robert Bentley.
WSFA-TV reports that Bentley made the comments during an appearance Thursday night in Montgomery.
Dianne Bentley filed for divorce from the governor in late August, citing an irretrievable breakdown, and a judge officially ended their 50-year marriage on Tuesday.
The former first lady says God is helping her, and expressed thanks for prayers. She says she still wants to represent the state “as a lady” even though she isn’t first lady anymore.
Bentley’s comments came outside the state Capitol at a rally against domestic violence. Bentley campaigned for domestic violence awareness and prevention as first lady, and she says she wants to continue doing that.
