A new twist!
Yesterday, we reported that Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd is “over the moon” about her divorce being finalized ― but apparently there is more to the story than meets the eye. While the couple’s official split was a long time coming, new details have emerged that indicate the demise of their relationship may have gone down quite differently than fans previously thought!
While previous reports cited contempt and a whole lot of fighting as the main causes for the Dodds’ split, turn out that there was even more anguish lurking beneath the surface. Now, we’ve got the scoop!
“Over the Moon”
Kelly Dodd was thrilled to announce that her 12-year marriage to Michael Dodd has officially ended earlier this week. The famously embattled couple spent years at each other’s throats — possibly literally — before finally pulling the trigger and finalizing their divorce filings. Kelly revealed that she first filed the papers over five years ago on an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, but went on to say that the case was left unresolved. Turns out that she finally took the plunge, finalizing her divorce from her husband.
Outlets have been reporting that their rocky relationship was due to their incompatibility or vicious fights for years, but new information has come out that there may be more to the story!
Apparently, infidelity may have been the start of their problems
According to a new source — who Radar Online claims is close with the cast of RHOC — cheating was at the heart of their marital woes.
“Michael acts like he is so innocent but that is not the case at all,” the unnamed source told the outlet. “The real reason they split was because Kelly believed Michael was having an affair throughout their entire marriage with a 25-year-old!”
Of course, that’s all speculation for the time being as neither Kelly nor Michael has spoken about the alleged long-term affair publicly.
What we do know is that things between them had been volatile for years, which lends credence to the idea that there was a long-simmering wedge between them. Kelly has gone on record more than a few times with the less-than-savory details of her marriage to Michael even saying that he was “like Hitler” in a 2017 episode of RHOC. She also told the other women that they stayed together because it was “easier” to have her family that way, but also let them know that she never finalized primarily because her husband “wouldn’t let her.”
If true, the cheating rumors could change everything for the exes who are currently battling out the final details of their divorce in court. Yes, you read that right!
The divorce may be finalized, but the custody isn’t… and apparently, that’s contentious as all get-out as well.
