Kelly Dodd officially single but still needs to fight for Jolie

Even though Kelly Dodd is officially divorced from her ex-husband Michael, the two still have some things to work out, including financial issues and custody of their daughter Jolie.

Kelly Dodd revealed that she and her husband Michael would be divorcing as the previous season of The Real Housewives of Orange County was coming to an end. When Kelly joined the show, she had revealed that she wanted to divorce Michael years prior, but he refused to sign the divorce papers. Kelly had moved on and was engaged to another man. However, while on the show, fans could see that her marriage was slowly falling apart.

Dodd was angry with her husband and she revealed that they kept fighting. While The Real Housewives of Orange County was airing, she decided that she wanted to divorce her husband. On the reunion special, Kelly revealed that she had moved into another home and was living with her daughter Jolie. While the divorce has been finalized, Kelly and Michael still have to figure out a set custody plan for their daughter. They also have some assets and finances to work out.

It sounds like Jolie is currently living with Kelly Dodd, but reports reveal that Michael Dodd wants full custody of Jolie. It’s possible that he wants full custody as a way of hurting Kelly, but it’s also possible that he could be worried about The Real Housewives of Orange County. Even though he and Jolie have both filmed the show, it’s possible that he doesn’t want Jolie on the show without him. This has been seen before in the Real Housewives franchise, as divorces tend to change the dynamics of who gets to appear on the show.

What do you think about Kelly Dodd still having to fight for her daughter? Are you surprised that she may not get Jolie to herself?
