RHOC has not had the best of luck with relationships. We’ve seen Vicki, Tamra and Lynn Curtain head for divorce and unfortunately it looks like Shannon Beador may be heading down a similar path. Another OC housewife who is heading this way is Kelly Dodd who recently announced her plans to divorce Michael.
Despite divorce being difficult on families, Kelly insists that her 11 year old daughter Jolie understands it’s for the best. Speaking out to People Magazine, Kelly states:
“I just realized my parents’ relationship wasn’t healthy, and mind isn’t either. My daughter isn’t happy with us – I mean, she’s happy that we’re divorcing. It’s better for her. She’s actually really happy.”
We’ve heard some horror stories about the Dodd’s marriage and unfortunately it can be traumatic for the kids that witness it. Perhaps Jolie is relieved that this will bring both parents peace.
Kelly did state that it was not an easy decision to come to adding:
“I feel bad because Michael is one of my really good friends, and we have a family together. I’m sad – I’m sad I can’t call him all the time and be excited about something. I don’t have that – the friendship element of it, or someone who has my back. He always has my back, but he’s upset with me right now, of course. But he’ll get over it.”
Are you shocked at Kelly and Michael’s divorce? Do you think it’s for the best?
