Podcast host Bobbi Althoff announced her split from her husband Cory Althoff after four years of marriage in February 2024
Bobbi Althoff and her husband Cory Althoff called it quits after nearly half a decade together.
The Really Good Podcast host announced that she and her husband of four years were filing for divorce in February 2024. They got married on Jan. 31, 2020, and welcomed two children, daughters Isla and Luca, whom Cory filed for joint custody of.
"While our relationship did not work out as husband and wife, we will always be friends and I will always love him,” she wrote under a black-and-white photo of the pair smiling as she shows off her engagement ring.
Bobbi first went viral in 2023 when she started releasing episodes of her podcast, which featured her interviewing celebrities in a purposely awkward style, often making her guests hilariously uncomfortable. One of her first interviews was with Drake, which racked up millions of views before it was taken down shortly after it was posted.
So who is Bobbi Althoff’s estranged husband? Here’s everything to know about Cory Althoff and his relationship with the TikTok influencer.
He is pursuing his master’s at the University of Southern California
After graduating from Clemson University with a degree in political science, Cory pivoted to a career in technology. However, in 2023, he chose to return to school at the University of Southern California, where he is pursuing a master’s in business administration and management.
He is set to graduate in 2025, per his LinkedIn, and regularly posts photos with his cohort.
“I had such a great time studying communication and strategy this week as part of the MBA program i’m doing at USC Marshall,” he wrote in one post. “I learned so much, and I can’t wait to start applying it to my role at CompTIA.”
He is a software engineer
Cory decided to pursue a career in technology after graduation and taught himself to code. He landed his first job as a software engineer at eBay in 2014 before working for a startup, Thuuz Sports, and then taking a break from the tech world to focus on writing his books.
“I wanted to try creating my own product, do something on my own, instead of working for a company,” Cory told Forbes in November 2017.
Now, Cory is the senior vice president of software development programs at CompTIA, a position he assumed in February 2023, per his LinkedIn.
He is a published author
Motivated by his own struggle and journey of getting his start in the field, Cory decided to write his first book, The Self-Taught Programmer, in 2017 to help others who may be on a similar path. His goal was to make the book accessible so that people who had no knowledge at all about the field could easily understand what he was writing about.
“It was like solving a puzzle,” he told Forbes. “I was trying to create a book you could follow with zero knowledge.”
Cory published the book himself, raising over $4,000 on Kickstarter and spending over $10,000 of his own money to market and publish the book on Amazon. Since then, he received traditional contracts from publishing companies in five countries across the globe, and the book has sold over 100,000 copies in seven different languages as of March 2021.
In 2021, Cory released his second book, The Self-Taught Computer Scientist, in an effort to write something on the subject that “anyone can read,” he wrote on Instagram. This time, he published through Wiley.
“Whether you are preparing for a technical interview or want to become a better programmer: I've done my best to present the fundamental computer science concepts you need to have a successful programming career in a way anyone can understand,” he wrote while promoting the book on Instagram in 2021. “I hope my new book inspires a new wave of self-taught programmers and helps contribute to even more success stories.”
He and Bobbi share two daughters
The former couple are parents to two daughters, Luca and Isla. Isla was born in June 2022 and Luca was born in 2020. Before her TikTok pivoted toward promoting her podcast interviews, Bobbi mainly posted content about being a mom and the struggles that come with it.
However, after she gained fame, she deleted all the videos involving her daughters off her page, explaining on Dave Portnoy's BFFs podcast in August 2023 that she didn’t want them to be recognized in public.
"I'm so happy I [deleted the videos], especially since I made that decision before [the podcast] because I don't want them to have the digital footprint that I've created," she said. "Now when they go public and they're not with me, I don't have to worry so that's good."
In his divorce filing, Cory requested joint legal and physical custody of their children.
He was occasionally featured in Bobbi's TikToks
Before she wiped her TikTok of all personal content, Cory occasionally showed up in Bobbi’s TikToks. In a since-deleted April 2023 video, the former couple made a promotional video for Bounty together. In the clip, Bobbi talks about how Cory tries to tidy the house, but jokes that she ultimately always cleans after him because he “always misses tiny things.”
“Today I thought it would be a fun idea to talk about our marriage,” Bobbi said in the video. “My husband sleeps downstairs and I sleep upstairs where the children sleep and I take care of them all night long so I’m generally tired so he does all the cleaning.”
Apart from brief appearances, however, Bobbi always kept any details about her now-estranged husband to herself.
“I prefer to keep my relationship private,” she told Cosmopolitan in August 2023.
Cory filed for divorce in February 2024
In February 2024, Cory filed for divorce from Bobbi, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason. He listed their date of separation as July 4, 2023, and checked off a box to block the court from awarding spousal support to either party.
Bobbi addressed the filing on Instagram, writing how despite their split, she would always love him and consider him a friend.
“As most of you have heard, Cory and I have filed for divorce,” she wrote in the caption. “As sad as I am right now, I am so thankful for the time I got to be his wife. Our girls are so lucky to have him as a father & I am so lucky to be able to coparent with such an incredible father and person.”
