He 'Completely Changed:' Kaley Cuoco Reveals Secret Behind Failed First Marriage

Kaley Cuoco is getting ready to wed the love of her life — for the second time — and she's admitted to reporters that marrying her first husband was a total mistake.

"I married someone the first time who completely changed," Cuoco, 32, told Cosmopolitan about ex, Ryan Sweeting. "The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn't my fault — that was his."

"I honestly thought I wouldn't get married again. My ex ruined that word for me," added The Big Bang Theory star, who is now engaged to professional equestrian and billionaire heir, Karl Cook.

As readers know, Cuoco married pro tennis player Sweeting, 30, in 2013, after dating for just three months! Sadly, they filed for divorce just 21 months later, with the actress citing "irreconcilable differences."

The breakup got dirty, as Sweeting even tried to get spousal support from his Hollywood lady following their split!

Despite her heartbreak over her first marriage, Cuoco regained her strength, and found love again with Cook. This December, she even broke down in tears in a sweet Instagram video post announcing their engagement.
