Diane von Furstenberg Doesn't Depend on Her Husband, Live with Him Rumors have long surrounded the nature of Diane von Furstenberg and her husband Barry Diller's relationship — before their marriage, he was presumed to be openly gay — and in the February 2009 issue of Town & Country, she addresses their unique approach: "Barry respects me so much. We don't live together during the week, although we go out together. I live on top of my shop; he lives at the Carlyle hotel. It doesn't feel strange at all. I just need a little bit of space."
