RHOC star Kelly Dodd celebrates the end of her 11-year-marriage with a glass of champagne
The reality TV star ended her 11-year-marriage with Michael and celebrated with a glass of champagne, according to sources.
Kelly Dodd's 11-year-old marriage with Michael has come to an end. The Real Housewives of Orange County star announced on Friday, that her divorce got finalized and expressed her happiness by stating that she's "over the moon."
The 42-year-old was seen celebrating the court order with a glass of champagne, according to eyewitnesses.
A source said that Kelly was out with her friend Candice Gorsuch, at The Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado on Friday night, and the two ladies were having a good time.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Kelly felt "liberated" after the divorce came through.
The couple announced their decision to divorce in September 2017 after years of trying to make it work. The Bravo star revealed on the show that her marriage lacked intimacy.
In season 12 finale of Real Housewives of Orange County, she told co-star Vicki Gunvalson that they haven't had physical intimacy in a while. "I obviously do not trust him. I cannot live the rest of my life like this. Michael and I don’t even have sex. We have not had intimacy. He does not look at me that way," Kelly said.
Their roller-coaster marriage had its ups and downs for many years, and the mother-of-two earlier said she even tried to pursue a divorce in 2012 but decided to stay married instead. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said they're "addicted" to each other, which made separation difficult.
"I feel like I can't live without him sometimes, and he feels like he can't live without me. So, I mean, you know, we've always had that kind of relationship … it's an addiction in a way," Kelly said in June 2017. A few months later, they decided to call it quits for good.
Although Kelly never revealed what led to the divorce, the couple seemed to have faced trust and intimacy issues. They often threw jabs at each other on the show. According to sources, Kelly and Michael didn't separate on good terms and aren't on "talking basis" right now. The couple shares a daughter, Jolie. However, it's unclear if they're reached a custody agreement yet.
