Just weeks after the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member filed for separation, citing “irreconcilable differences” and requesting full legal and physical custody of their three children, 10-year-old twins Vera and Vince, and 9-year-old Robert, Jen has confirmed in court documents that she now wants a divorce.
According to the documents, which were obtained by Radar Online on June 3, Jen hopes to retain a number of her current assets, including all assets she had prior to their November 2013 wedding, and all she’s obtained in the weeks since her separation, which she changed from September 8, 2021 to April 6, 2022 in her latest set of documents.
Jen’s lawyer went on to say that Jen wants Ryne to have visitation with their kids and noted that she does not want Ryne to be granted spousal support before stating that she should retain her cosmetic dermatology company, Porsche Cayenne, jewelry, and any inheritance received.
Jen also wants to keep many of her assets, including bank accounts, properties, cars, and homes, and has requested a 90 percent interest in their Hawaii home, as well as their properties in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach.
The court documents went on to state that Jen and Ryne took out a $750,000 loan with her mom, which Jen will pay half of as Ryne is expected to cover the balance.
Following news of Jen and Ryne’s separation, an insider revealed the reason behind Jen’s filing.
“There was no specific catalyst for the filing. After their first trial separation in September, Jen and Ryne were still in limbo and Jen felt like she needed to take this step to improve their family dynamic,” a source shared. “The issues they’ve been having are the same issues that played out on the show. But all is amicable and they are committed to keeping their kids stable and happy.”
As RHOC fans may have seen, Kelly Dodd raised questions about Jen’s separation in May, suggesting that fans of the reality star shouldn’t be convinced that Jen and Ryne were actually separating.
“Doesn’t mean they filed for divorce .. just means they want another season,” she alleged.
Ryne has yet to appear in court with a response to his estranged wife’s divorce request.
The Real Housewives of Orange County will return for a 17th season either later this year or early next. And earlier this week, cast member Heather Dubrow hinted in an Instagram Story that both she and Shannon Beador would be back for the new episodes.
