Kelly Dodd’s Secret First Marriage


Before Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Kelly Dodd met and separated from her current husband Michael, a new report reveals that she was involved in another marriage.

According to Maricopa County Superior Court documents, Dodd was served with divorce papers by her first husband, Arizona lawyer Scott Christopher Silva, on July 12, 2004.

The couple was married for just three years when Silva determined the relationship was “irretrievably broken” and there was “no reasonable prospect of reconciliation,” he stated in the filing. They did not have any children together.

Unlike her split from Michael, Kelly’s first divorce went pretty smoothly. By October 14 of that year, she and Silva had come to a settlement agreement, RadarOnline reports.

“Neither party shall receive spousal maintenance,” the consent decree of dissolution reads.

Silva got his office suite, law firm, bank accounts and investments, while Dodd received the couple’s Scottsdale home and a 2001 Audi TT. Kelly was also held responsible for her own Neiman Marcus credit card debt.

According to records, Dodd married her second husband Michael a year and a half later on April 15, 2006.

As we previously reported, Dodd filed for divorce in 2012. Two years later, she was arrested for assaulting Michael. She was ordered to attend therapy and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings before the case was dismissed.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.


    Again, Big Mouth Dodd was forced to attend AA. And she is still drinking so apparently that didn’t work which is sad because she’s got this kid around her. What a great parent!!

    She is a nasty piece of work, and so is her husband. She is one of the most loathsome housewives ever.

    So she was married b4. When a person is ordered to attend AA due to an altercation it doesn’t mean their an Alcoholic! That husband #1 might have stories abt her was what Shannon& her husband did. They called some 1in her past in order to get dirt. That’s sick,mean & vile! Kelly said some awful things but Shannon set her up big time with those hooker friends of hers.It was wrong & Kelly struck back. She tried to apologize to Satan’s Spawn but she wasn’t having it. So too bad it is what it is.U can hear when she said this isn’t turning out like I thought it wud! It was an ambush!

      Shut up Douchbag Dodd (Nancy)

    • Ms. Nancy. Amen. Shannon, & David got BUSTED earlier this week for trying to dig up dirt on Kelly. ( Set Up# 2?) This is shady, immature, & just desperate. They need to get out of High School.

      I don’t judge anyone on what happened in their past. ( we all have a past.) Everyone has done things in the past that they are not proud of. I will judge on how you treat me.

      Big deal. She was married, & divorced. Shocker.

    What totally cracked me up was when Shannon went whining to her husband ” they are calling me ugly” hahaha, it was mean but come on, you are 50 year old women, have more dignity and respect. Next, a person that was ordered to go to AA and admits to having a bar in every floor, has a serious drinking problem. One more thing, I am Mexican and come from a very close family, but we do not have all our family living in the same house unless they are in need and or disabled. The fact that the creepy brother lives with her is terrifying and actually disgusting. ‘nough said.
