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.
