A Real Housewives of Orange County star has been sentenced to nearly $500,000 in court.
Noella Bergener has faced a hefty sentence against her, according to court documents obtained by Heavy.
Here’s what you need to know:
On April 21, 2022, the Orange County California branch Supreme Court ruled that the RHOC star owed a creditor $415,995.71, according to the official ruling.
The plaintiff, the Creditors Adjustment Bureau, sought $239,832.22 in damages, $116,081 in interest (at 10 percent), $5,488.32 in attorneys’ fees and $594.17 in “costs” totaling nearly $500,000.
The verdict was issued “by default,” according to the documents.
According to RadarOnline, who spoke to a source, Bergener “believed her ex was on the bill — not her,” so she “never hired a lawyer to handle the case.”
Bergener is currently going through a divorce with her husband James, which served as a major storyline for her debut season at RHOC.
During her appearance at the reunion, Bergener admitted that she met her future ex-husband on a “sugar daddy” website.
“I thought forgive me [Seeking Arrangement was] kind of like a sugar daddy,” Andy Cohen asked Bergener after she said she didn’t marry James for his money.
“I mean, there are attractive girls and wealthy men are the standard,” she said. “I wanted to start a family and love this man.”
During her performance at the “Real Housewives of Orange County” reunion, Bergener revealed that she’s dating someone else and he bought her a big present.
“Okay, well, yes, yes, he bought me an adult toy marketplace company. We just trademarked it. It’s called Playland and I’m very excited about it. It was my Christmas present,” she said at the reunion, to the shock of Cohen and the other housewives.
She also revealed that her new husband was very conservative.
“But you know the crazy thing is? He considers everything when someone is cheating, so I guess my stack days are retired. I’m perfectly matched,” she said.
Shortly after the reunion, she shared the couple’s first photo on her Instagram.
“Grab your sweetheart and watch #RHOC reunion part two tonight at 9pm on @Bravotv #lovedup #twinflame,” she captioned the photo of her sitting on his lap.
Her friend Bobby Schubenski shared the same photo with the caption “Twin flame vibes @noellarhoc” with several heart and flame emojis.
Several people commented on her post and wished her all the best in the new relationship.
RHOC co-star Nicole James commented with multiple flame emojis.
“I’m glad to see you are enjoying life. You deserve happiness,” wrote one fan.
“When you fell over he bought you a company for Christmas…so hot lol,” commented another.
“UPGRADE,” wrote another fan.
“…I’m happy for you. Keep being who you are,” said one fan.
“So happy for you guys that he better treat you guys right and stay for the long haul,” wrote another fan.
