On September 27, Dodd, who first joined the Bravo reality show during its 11th season, told the press that she was officially done with her marriage to Michael. As she explained at the time, Dodd said, “We’ve had problems for years, and I’ve had enough.”

As fans may recall, Kelly Dodd first filed for divorce from Michael in 2012, but because their case was drawn out and they were unable to find a resolution, she ultimately decided to stay married. Now, after leaving Michael for the second time, Dodd is hoping her attorney can file a motion for a bifurcated divorce.

At the time of Dodd's first divorce filing, she requested $41,666 in child support and spousal support. A short time later, Michael fired back, claiming that he was left as Jolie's primary caregiver after his wife allegedly ditched the child to go party.
