Noella Bergner has a theory about why her Real Housewives of Orange County c0-stars had so many issues with her while filming season 16.
According to Noella, she thinks her co-stars were “jealous” that she had three different life events occur while filming; giving her an ample storyline.
“It’s a weird world to be in. Like, my agony – people were almost jealous of it,” Noella told Page Six.
During season 16, Noella dealt with her son’s autism diagnosis, her father’s death, and a divorce from her ex-husband, James Bergner.
While the RHOC cast had sympathy for Noella amid her various woes, they often felt she focused too much on her own issues and failed to acknowledge any issues that were facing the rest of the group.
“The crazy thing was, a lot of times some of these conversations were shut down, which is infuriating. Like, I’m grieving my active divorce and being shut down by women,” she continued. “These other women are suddenly judging me because, like, three months ago my husband just left and I have a feeling about that day…How dare I not be done with that already and just stop with my annoying feelings and emotions!”
When it comes to her feud with Heather Dubrow, Noella explained, “I was probably the number one [fan] looking forward to Heather Dubrow. I was so pumped. I was so excited I DMed her like, ‘OMG I’m dead this is going to be so much fun!’”
Meanwhile, the 36-year-old has split from her boyfriend Bobby Schubenski. Noella is once again looking for love on Seeking.com where she met her ex-husband.
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in late 2022 or early 2023.
