Fans of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” refer to Nicole James as “the worst friend of all”.
During Noella Bergener’s nervous breakdown, ‘RHOC’ viewers were irritated by Nicole James’ lack of attention towards her friend.
According to “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Noella Bergener, her husband abandoned her and their 2-year-old autistic son.
Apparently, this reality TV newbie said in a lengthy Instagram post that James Bergener, her husband and long-term partner, left the house five months ago claiming to have served her divorce papers from Puerto Rico.
The Bravo series last week featured Noella, 36, as a victim of divorce papers, which James had turned over after canceling his credit cards and leaving.
She cried after meeting Heather Dubrow’s friend Nicole James for a drink during Wednesday’s episode.
‘My life is falling apart’
“It feels like the end of the world right now. You’re going to be better,” Nicole said.
“Yesterday I received my divorce papers. Today I don’t even know where he is,” confessed Noella.
“I need to find him so I can pay the credit cards so I can pay for my son’s therapy,” Nicole said.
Facing the cameras, Noella said, “I don’t know.” She couldn’t think of anything else. “And I’m really scared to be in that place because I’ve never had a day in my life where I don’t know what I’m going to do,” she told Noella.
During Noella’s explanation of how James mistreated her, Nicole stared and played with her hair instead of comforting her friend. Nicole hesitated a bit before finally giving Noella a hug when she finally demanded one.
“I think our views on friendship are very different,” Noella said. Also, she said that she needs someone to “wrap me around”. And say that I know and that she has been there. In her confessional, Noella laments that she needs friends, for the first time, to really support her.
