Carrington and her family used to live in a privately located property of 20 acres, including a five-bedroom mansion, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which was estimated to have a valuation of $8.5 million. It had a 7,526 square foot home featuring dark wood, neutral walls, wooden inlay ceilings, and even a grand office, plus a master bathroom with floor to ceiling vanities. It was surrounded by a large lawn, multiple lakes, and according to reports, $1 million worth in stone and iron fencing. The property has a guardhouse in front and is far from other establishments. People rarely spot the home and if they do, they’d have to cross a football field’s length just to try to get to the front door. The property was put on sale in 2010, and was quickly sold after going on the market.

TV Show

During the peak of Rodney’s career, he was given his own sitcom called “Rodney” which was aired through ABC in 2004.

The show featured him having a family which resembles his real-life family, then with Jennifer Aspen playing his wife Trina. There were also several recurring characters in the show, which lasted for around two years. He was also a part of the film entitled “Beer for My Horses”, which is based on the song of the same name by Toby Keith, and was co-written by Rodney. It was released in 2008, making around $660,000 from its limited domestic airings.

Rodney Carrington is known for his work in comedy and country music. He has released six studio albums and a greatest hits package as a part of his work for both Capitol and Mercury Records. His stand-up routine usually combines original songs with his comedy work. After their divorce, he mentioned to the media that it was difficult for him to adjust as he no longer had a wife to reign him in, which caused him to put on weight. He also tried to date someone younger than himself, but found that the age gap proved difficult for him to find a connection.

After the marriage, not many details have been revealed about the life of Terri. She continues to connect with Rodney for their children, and has continued with her work as a speech pathologist. Many sources believe that she continues to reside in Oklahoma. According to an interview, they get an equal amount of time with their three children. After getting over the divorce, Rodney has stated that he is happier and feels as though his life has begun again. However, he has turned his attention more onto his children than a potential new partner.

1Just playing with a generation younger than me helps keep me current, and that's really important. I learned [that] from so many great jazz musicians that I've played with. The great ones, they don't want to keep going back to the past and replaying the same stuff they played. They're looking for something new to do.
