Kim Marie Kessler is a well-known American socialite and the second wife of WWE wrestler, actress, and stuntman Randall Keith ‘Randy’ Orton. Orton is best known for his performances in films such as ‘That’s What I Am’ (2011), ’12 Rounds 2: Reloaded’ (2013), and the WWE Studios film ‘The Condemned 2’ (2015), as well as the TV series ‘Shooter.’ (2016). While Kessler is not in the entertainment industry, she frequently accompanies her husband to various shows and events and has been profiled by a number of publications. In September 2015, she appeared opposite her husband on an episode of ‘Unfiltered With Renee Young’ on the WWE Network.

Ascend to Stardom

Kim Marie Kessler rose to prominence after she started dating famous WWE wrestler Randy Orton in 2012, during his divorce proceedings from his previous wife Samantha Speno. It made news headlines after Orton’s six years old marriage to Speno crumbled in early 2012, with Speno filing for divorce claiming an “irretrievably broken marriage”. Although the divorce was completed in June 2013, Kessler had been dating him since March 2012.

They never attempted to hide their relationship from the media and frequently appeared together at public events. While the media has extensively covered the progression of their romance and subsequent marriage, she has also provided frequent updates about her personal life since joining Twitter in 2014. Her journey to becoming the WWE star’s wife has been highlighted by several news sources, earning her celebrity status in the process.

Scandals and debates

Kim Marie Kessler was accused of being a ‘gold digger’ on social media after her relationship with Randy Orton was verified. She also sparked outrage by allegedly deleting several of his fan letter tweets. She was followed and harassed by a fan named Kayla Gomez, whom she and her then-boyfriend Orton dubbed “Ms. Piggy” on social media.

Gomez had also stalked Randy Orton before he realized who she was, taking a picture of him outside of a gym in Texas and later posting it online. Soon after, he tweeted the same picture to Kim Marie Kessler, telling her she should have been there to meet “the Latino Ms. Piggy” with him.

“Your (sic) are not the only one who can play games,” Kim replied to the message. Addressing the situation after the SmackDown filming in Laredo, Texas, he stated that he had blocked Gomez for stalking and harassing Kessler, but she continued to stalk him for photos. He also told her she needed to get a life or harass someone else.

Four months later, on November 14, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the two wedded. His daughter and her three boys were present at the wedding. Orton is very close to her three sons, of whom he frequently posts photos on social media. The step-siblings also get along well and are close to one another.

In 2016, she became pregnant with a baby girl and shared photos of her pregnancy with her followers on social media.
