Jennifer Pedranti, the rumored newbie on Real Housewives of Orange County season 17, is in the midst of a divorce from her husband of 18 years. Though her casting has not yet been announced, the Californian has filmed for the upcoming season.
If she receives the orange, Jennifer will join Tamra Judge, who was off the show for two years following her 2020 firing. Original castmate Vicki Gunvalson will appear as a ‘friend’ along with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Taylor Armstrong.
Based on legal docs acquired by Radar Online, Jennifer’s husband William Pedranti filed for divorce in March after 18 years of marriage. He purportedly did not use an attorney.
On the petition, the marriage date was listed as September 21, 2002, while the separation date was January 3, 2021. Their minor children were cited as Dominic, 8, Everleigh, 11, Greyson, 13, and Dawson, 15.
On Instagram, Jennifer says she has six children total, though it’s not known if she and William have adult children together.
The reason for the divorce was “irreconcilable differences,” according to the document. William also asked for joint physical and legal custody of the kids. He also agreed that Jennifer should be paid spousal support, and he requested that the court acknowledge his own separate property.
Jennifer filed a response on June 7, seemingly agreeing that their marriage was finished. She didn’t deny the separation or marriage date, and she requested that the divorce move forward.
She also agreed with her ex concerning physical and legal custody of the children, and she demanded spousal support, said the outlet.
Jennifer described the community property as “unknown at this time. To be determined.” The pair is reportedly successful and owns a $2.4 million house with 4,200 square feet, 5.5 bathrooms, and five bedrooms.
The mother of six owns a yoga company, and William seems to be a “biotech entrepreneur.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to air in early 2023 on Bravo.
