'RHOC' Star Noella Bergener Claims Estranged Husband Abandoned Their Family & Moved to Puerto Rico

Noella Bergener is making some claims against her estranged husband James.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to social media on Monday (December 20) to share a clip from the reality show and reflect on her challenging past five months.

“5 months ago my husband and partner of 6 years left the house with his toothbrush leaving behind his life, family and home,” Noella began her post. “He ended our marriage with service of divorce papers from Puerto Rico. To this date James has not visited our son or given me any explanation for his departure.”

The reality star is a mom to daughter Coco, 7, from a previous marriage, and shares son James Jr., 2, who is autistic, with James.

She continued, “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.”

As for why she decided to stay on the show, Noella said, “After his departure I made the decision to stay on the show we were primarily doing to promote his brand 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.”

“I don’t wish to encourage James bashing with this post. Just providing insight to the hell I am still in,” she concluded.

Noella filed for divorce from James back in November, with her filing indicating that she was not aware of their outstanding debts. In August, it was reported that James had been hit with a federal tax lien for 2018 and 2019 totaling over $4 million, as well as a separate lien from California for $1.85 million.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
