Reality Stars Kelly & Michael Dodd Split — What Went Wrong?
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Kelly Dodd is calling it quits with Michael Dodd after 11 years of marriage.
Kelly told DailyMail.com, "Our marriage is over, I'm out of there! We've have problems for years and I've had enough, I'm done with our marriage. It's just a case where two people can't get along. It's best if we went our separate ways and concentrate on our daughter."
She reiterated about the split, "We aren't good together, maybe we'll better to each other when we are divorced and are friends. But right now we are both miserable and it's not good for either one of us, let alone our daughter."
Five years ago, Kelly tried ending the marriage, but they reconciled. She said, "I filed for divorce against Michael in 2012 and we never had any resolution the case is just sitting there. So I'm going to ask my attorney to file a motion so I can get a bifurcated divorce. I want out of my marriage as soon as possible. We can figure out the financials of our divorce down the road.”
In her 2012 divorce papers, obtained by "Extra," Kelly requested spousal and child support based on his $500,000 income at the time. Michael responded to the papers, agreeing to award spousal support and child support, but requested joint legal and joint physical custody of their daughter Jolie. The two were able to come to an agreement in 2013.
It was recently reported that police were called to the couple's home in Newport Beach 11 times this year. Their tumultuous relationship has been documented on recent seasons of “The Real Housewives of Orange County."
