The stories being bandied about were all about Michael filing for divorce, the couple putting up their home for sale, Michael making public appearances without his wedding ring for nearly the whole of 2008, the couple not making public appearances together and Buffy being seen with a man who was not her husband.
But, the rumours had obviously some element of truth in it because the couple decided to call it quits and were divorced by 2010.
Waltrip asked Franks to hold his hand during the stitching under his lip. Michael Waltrip and Buffy Franks married on Nov 27 1993.
Their daughter, Margaret Carol Waltrip was born on Sep 29, 1997.
Even as fans on Twitter questioned Eva Busch's absence and the lack of a wedding ring on Kurt Busch's finger throughout the last few months, I basically turned a blind eye to the story.
At least we cant say Buffy is a gold-digger huh, she left all that for some guy named Adam?
Despite him admitting to Buffy about his issues, they had already become too distant from each other; and though she soon moved out with their daughter, the couple continue to remain friends.
You probably heard her name before, Elizabeth Franks was married for 17 years to race car driver Michael Waltrip before the couple decided to call it quits in 2010. Elizabeth Buffy Franks was born on April 5, 1967 in Louisiana.
It's at least a question that could have been asked; it wasn't, though.
