Anna Marie Tendler is revealing details about her split from John Mulaney.
“Everything that has unfolded has been utterly startling and I believe bizarre,” Tendler, 36, said of her breakup with the comedian in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, which was published on Tuesday.
“I feel like, in a way, it can only get better from here,” she told the site. “Because I’d gone as far as I was capable of going.”
Mulaney, 38, and Tendler, who married in the summer of 2014 in New York, announced their breakup in May.
Mulaney completed a 60-day rehab stay three months ago to seek therapy after a relapse in his decades-long struggle with addiction.
“I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage,” Tendler said at the time of their split in a statement to PEOPLE. “As he continues his rehabilitation, I wish him strength and prosperity.”
Mulaney’s rep stated in a statement to Page Six, which first reported the news, that “John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his rehabilitation and getting back to work.”
Mulaney filed for divorce in New York in July, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
Though the breakup left Tendler “heartbroken,” she told Harper’s Bazaar on Tuesday that she’s had time to ponder and analyze the situation and is now looking forward to beginning a new chapter in her life.
“I feel happy that I get to be on the cusp of all of these new things that I get to perhaps experience, and who knows how they will go?” she told the site. “There’s definitely something thrilling about that.”
Mulaney, for one, has recently returned to the stage for his well-received “From Scratch” stand-up tour.
The comedian is now dating actress Olivia Munn, with whom he has a son, Malcolm Hip Mulaney, who was born on November 24.

John Mulaney Early Life
Mulaney was born in Chicago, Illinois, on August 26th, 1982. His father, Charles, was an attorney and partner at Skadden Arps, and his mother, Ellen, was a professor at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law. John was an altar boy as a child because his parents are of Irish Catholic descent. He is the third child in a family of five.
Mulaney knew he wanted to be in show business since he was a child. He joined “The Rugrats,” a Chicago-based children’s sketch club when he was seven years old. John was offered an audition for the role of Kevin in the film “Home Alone” because of the club, but his parents declined.
Mulaney went to St. Clement School in Chicago, where instead of writing reports, he and his best buddy staged a skit based on what they had learned. John played Wally Webb in the production of “Our Town” when he was 14 years old. Mulaney attended St. Ignatius College Prep before enrolling at Georgetown University, where he studied English and religion. John joined the school’s improv group during university, when he met Nick Kroll and Mike Birbiglia. Later, he joined Birbiglia on his stand-up tour, which aided him in developing his stage presence.
