Kyly Clarke has come quite a way since her split from husband Michael Clarke. 

The single mother, 39, was left devastated after her seven-year marriage fell apart in late 2019, but has since rebuilt herself into a powerful and independent career woman.

Now, as reports surface about Michael’s recent bitter split from girlfriend Pip Edwards, it seems Kyly is well and truly having the last laugh.

During her marriage, Kyly forged a career as an interior designer, candle maker and lifestyle blogger under the brand Lifestyled. 

Following her divorce, the brunette has expanded into home renovations and recently started her own construction company, Kyly’s Constructions.  

She kicked off her first construction project late last year, revamping a run-down granny flat into a luxury lodging.

Speaking about her new business venture, Kyly told Who magazine:  ‘I love being able to start with nothing and build something from the ground up – there aren’t many jobs left in life where you can do that. 

‘I also have a really amazing team.’ 

The former WAG is also enjoying a higher profile in her showbiz career since her split, scoring a TV hosting role on House Rules: High Stakes alongside Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and tradesman Saul Myers.

Kyly announced her new gig in October 2019, telling her Instagram fans she was thrilled to join the reality show. 

‘*NEWS FLASH* Soooo thrilled and excited to announce another career dream has come true. To my dearest followers and supporters in life, I am officially one of the new @houserules judges,’ Kyly said. 

‘To everyone who has supported me throughout my career and I mean, since I was a kid, thank you,’ she continued.

Kyly went on to thank her supporters and encouraged them to never give up on their dreams.

‘You can be whatever you want to be in life, but to have a good group of great joyous people around you to cheer you on along the way, makes it so much easier.’ 

The show struggled in the ratings and was axed a year later.

However, Kyly refused to let it get her down, and immediately bounced back by joining Seven’s revamped season of Dancing With The Stars this year.  

Kyly wowed audiences with her skills on the dance floor and, with the help of her partner Gustavo Viglio, managed to sashay her way into the finale.

For her last dance, the mother-of-one performed a jaw-dropping routine to a slowed-down version of Britney Spears’ hit Toxic.

Kyly shimmied across the dance floor in a jaw-dropping sheer dress covered in glittering jewels. She also managed some tricky professional moves during the routine, including a lift that impressed the judges and earned a score of 37 out of 40.  

While Kyly is reaching new career heights, Michael is battling a slew of headlines about his recent split from on-and-off girlfriend P.E. Nation designer Pip Edwards.

Pip and Michael are said to have split in February, less than a year after they went public with their whirlwind romance.  

While they were inseparable for much of the relationship, as of late March neither had featured on the other’s Instagram since Australia Day.   

When contacted about their split at the time, Pip told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I have no comment, no comment at all.’

Sources close to the pair said while they had gone their separate ways, they remained good friends and the split was ‘amicable’.

They had sparked reconciliation rumours in April when they spent a sun-soaked day on the water together after dining at a lavish restaurant. 

However, any friendship between the pair appears to have now fizzled. 

Pip was recently pictured spending time with Bondi restaurateur Cameron Northway.
