Noella Bergener is a first time housewife but she has certainly brought some baggage with her onto the show. Before the season even aired, tax issues popped up. Noella’s husband, James Bergener, owed millions in back taxes. That she didn’t even know about until it came out in the press! Then he hit her with a divorce, which played out in front of the cameras. Noella felt blindsided. The Real Housewives of Orange County star cried during her confessional, “I’m lost. I’m completely lost. I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to think. It’s a bad dream. It’s just a really, really bad dream.”
Unfortunately for Noella, it hasn’t gotten any better. Noella recently took to Instagram and explained just how bad it’s been, especially watching it while the season is now airing. Noella began her post, “BRUTAL to relive (crying emoji) 5 months ago my husband and partner of 6 years left the house with his toothbrush leaving behind his life, family and home. He ended our marriage with a service of divorce papers from Puerto Rico. Which he doesn’t qualify for since we are California citizens and nothing untoward happened in our marriage there.”
The new Orange County Housewife admitted, “We had been arguing since I found out of his tax debts through gossip sites 3 weeks prior and was confused with his push back to selling our vacation home to cover them.”
Apparently, James hasn’t even bothered to reach out, leaving Noella and their young son in the dark. She continued, “To this date James has not visited our son or giving me any explanation for his departure. He has fled the state to evade service. My cards are still shut off, he hasn’t paid a dime in support, he stopped paying for our home and is currently holding up our divorce unless I sign a statement saying that I lied about him, his business partner and his brand.” I don’t know what happened between them but what kind of man does this? It sounds like he’s been lying throughout their one year marriage.
Noella revealed, “I spoke nothing but the truth and have all the receipts. If anything I really protected my husband by not speaking about his issues but rather focused on my journey in this now divorce. He is the father of my child and want him to be well.” She went on about why she stayed on the show during such a horrible time in her life. Noella admitted, “After his departure I made the decision to stay on the show we were meant to do together because frankly it was the only thing getting me out of bed and with the hope that others going through something similar could understand they’re not alone.”
She added, “I realize there are three sides to every story. I have asked him to give an explanation through a 3rd party to provide insight which he has repeatedly declined. Everything I’ve said and am saying are FACTS.” Noella ended her post with thanks and said, “Thank you for your continued support and prayers for my family. I don’t wish to encourage James bashing with this post. Just providing insight to the hell I am still in. #rhoc#divorcesucks #ineedclosure.”
