Noella Bergener Married Life And Divorce Rumor

Noella Bergener was married to her husband Sweet James for more than a year. The two had tied the knot in June 2020. The couple seemed happily married initially but their married life has taken a plunge recently. Noella herself has spoken about the divorce.

She has revealed that the two are planning to get divorced this year. The news of their divorce has been making headlines ever since their announcement. The fans are making many assumptions and theories about the possible cause of the reason of their divorce. 

An episode of The Real Housewives Of Orange County has shown her visibly upset about the divorce. She looks really worried and tense to receive divorce papers from him. She has said in an interview that the divorce is her worst nightmare.   

James and Noella met several years before they got married. The two are parents of their two kids: a son and a daughter. Their marriage has come to a rocky end, unfortunately. Their divorce rumor had been the talk of the town since November 2021.

Her two-year-old son was diagnosed with Autism in May 2021. It has not been made clear about the custody of their children so far. A few months ago, her mother had to get hospitalized. This year has not been very easy on Noella at all. 

The government issued her husband a federal tax lien of $5.8 million in the summer of 2021. The news has shocked the viewers of the show. In fact, Noella herself is as shocked and disgusted as fans. This was not very long after showrunners started to film for the 16th season of the show. 

The messy divorce is bound to have an impact on her financial status. She was tempted to leave the show following the devastating news. But she opted to finish filming the season with the help and support of the producers of the show:  

The show was giving me the strength, and empowering me, really, to look deep into it

Her lifestyle has turned upside down due to the financial difficulties after the split. She still has kids to look after.  She is seen confiding in her friend Shannon to cope with the divorce. She is looking forward to not letting the challenge dishearten her.
