Unfortunately, not every couple on Newlyweds: The First Year lives happily ever after. Blair Late and Jeff Pedersen sadly decided to end their domestic partnership after appearing on Season 1 of the show.
When The Daily Dish last caught up with Blair in March 2015 he was still coping with the break-up, but these days Blair seems to have moved on and is focusing on his new job with Michael Kors. "I have been jetsetting around the country recruiting new talent and meeting lots of amazing people!" Blair told The Daily Dish. "I am normally only in L.A. two weeks out of the month these days spending lots of time in San Francisco, Seattle, Las Vegas, Manhattan, and Texas!"

Blair is still single, but he's not quite ready to jump back into the dating game just yet. "Dating is not in the cards for me right now as I simply don’t have the time!" he said. "My career, friends, family, and my relationship with myself keep me entertained, and I prefer it that way!"
He also recently did some jetsetting for pleasure, spending two weeks in Mexico over the holidays where he worked on a new writing project titled I Left My Heart in Savannah, which is based on his experiences with marriage, divorce, and finding one's self again. "I can’t wait to share it with the world someday, sort of my version of Steel Magnolias meets Hope Floats!" Blair said. "My mother says, 'Blair’s having his Hemingway moment.'"
Blair even has a personal connection to the current season of Newlyweds. He's good friends with couple Craig Ramsay and Brandon Liberati, who also does his hair. "I am especially excited for Brandon and Craig, who definitely don’t need my advice, but I will say Brandon does a fabulous job on my hair and they are everything a couple should be, partners in crime!" Blair told The Daily Dish.

As for all of the Newlyweds cast members this season, Blair said that for a marriage to work, feeling good about yourself is just as important as the love you have for your spouse. "All I can say is love yourself before loving anyone else, because ultimately if you're not happy being 'you,' you won't be capable of making someone else happy and vice versa!" he said. "Best of luck, couples!"
This season of Newlyweds has only just begun. See what else in store in the clip, below.
