RHOC Star Kelly Dodd Opens Up About Her Divorce

RHOC star Kelly Dodd recently announced that she is getting a divorce from her husband Michael Dodd. Now, the Bravo star is getting more candid about her divorce.

“It was just, it was not working,” Kelly admits. “I guess everyone has a final straw, I just … it was like, just disagreements all the time.”

Kelly invited ET into her Corona Del Mar, California, home for one last tour with her realtor, The $6 million home is in escrow right now, and the Dodds plan to move out within the month. The home was for sale before Kelly decided to file for divorce.

“You’ll see it [play] out on camera,” she teases of what led to her decision. “Just continue to watch [Real Housewives of Orange County] and you’ll see how everything is good, and then just a hardcore left.”

“That’s probably what the course of my relationship is like with Michael,” she adds. “It’s either good or really bad,” Kelly said.

“We’re really good friends,” Kelly admits. “He’s my family. He’s part of my family, and he always will be, you know? I always want him in my life. We always want to do things together with [our 10-year-old daughter], Jolie, and it was just, we just can’t live together. That’s it.”

The couple are currently still living together.

“It’s a new chapter in my life, which I’m pretty excited about,” Kelly said of her upcoming divorce and her impending move.

“[I’m excited for] just, you know, spending one-on-one time with my daughter,” Kelly shared. “Getting just really focused … focused on Kelly.”

    “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sows ear”! Kelly is a gold digger and a drunk! She’s been cheating on Michael for years.. probably has someone waiting in the wings! She’s going to find out the grass is NOT greener on the other side, she thinks she’s too hot for Michael and just wants to get laid! Men will use her all right.. for any money or noteriety she might have.. but they aren’t closing the deal w that one! She’s as nutty as Shannon! Kelly is gonna find out that she now falls into the “older woman category now” and those OC guys want “a newer, younger model with no kids/baggage (certainly not a crazy like Kelly)! ! Michael get AWAY from her.. move forward with an “age appropriate woman” and “get custody” of your daughter and protect her! Kelly’s STILL playing you!

    I’m sure she is difficult to live with–just watch the TV.

    At least she had the guts to divorce her husband, unlike Shannon who’s complaining about her marriage and her weight all the time. Can’t stand that woman anymore.
