‘RHOC’ Star Gets Devastating News in Divorce Battle
This going to get ugly
Kelly and Michael Dodd wed in 2006 after two years of dating, and they gave birth to their daughter Jolie in 2007. The new parents didn’t have an smooth relationship at all and were often seen arguing ― even in the early days. Kelly finally filed for divorce in 2012.
Of course, they weren’t quite ready to officially split at the time. Instead, they tried to forge a better relationship over the last few years. Unfortunately, Kelly said that they just couldn’t get along after all.
“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,” the star told Daily Mail,
Kelly has been having a rough year aside from the divorce proceedings. As Celebuzz! previously reported, police were called to her home several times in 2017. They came to the abode four times on July 20 of that year in response to “keeping the peace” calls. Kelly said on Instagram that the cops were called by “old people” in her neighborhood who didn’t like her loud parties. She also said that the cops were called due to people stalking her at the home.
Kelly filed a motion in September to move her five-year-old divorce filing forward just before the couple sold their mansion for $5 million. Even with all the the time that had passed, she still had mixed emotions about making a huge change after all these years.
“It’s sad because I’ve lived with Michael most of my life. We have a kid together, a child together. It’s hard to see it go,” she told Andy Cohen on the RHOC reunion.
Michael is ready for the divorce as well, but he’s not giving up anything without a fight.
“Michael is giving her hell. He wants [their daughter] Jolie full-time,” an insider told Page Six in December.
Too Busy to Parent
Michael feels that his 11-year-old daughter won’t get enough care from Kelly because she’s working all the time. “Michael feels Kelly’s often traveling and busy filming,” a source close to Michael told Life & Style. “He wants to make sure that she gets all the attention she needs.”
To make matters worse, there definitely are hard feelings between the parents about what should happen with their custody arrangement. He’s taking precautions to make sure that he wins the legal battle. The source continued, “Michael has lawyered up because he wants full custody of their daughter. He is furious.”
Hopefully Kelly and Michael will realize that they should act in the best interests of their daughter Jolie. Do you think that Kelly should have more rights to her daughter? Let us know what you think in the comments and SHARE this story.
