Ending a marriage is an emotional and difficult step to take. It may be challenging, but it is often what is wanted and what is seen as the best option. However, this does not make divorce any easier. And for those in the public eye, dissolution can be even more challenging, as the camera catches their every move.
As many can contend, celebrity divorces can be shocking and entertaining. This is often why they are reported on, because the end results can be unexpected. This is what recently occurred in the divorce between Jim and Alexis Bellino, former cast members on Real Housewives of Orange County. According to reports, Jim initially sought spousal support when he filed for divorce; however, the court decided to award Alexis $10,000 a month in spousal support and $6,000 a month in child support.
Jim filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage. The two share three children, a 12-year-old son and 10-year-old twin daughters. The two agreed on joint legal and physical custody of their children. While rumors suggest that there is bad blood in their relationship, they contend that they are working together to care for their children. Nonetheless, the divorce settlement included instructions for the former spouses to not make any derogatory or disparaging remarks about the other party in the presence of their minor children.
Celebrity or not, divorce means working through and resolving any problems that come their way throughout the process. It can be difficult to work through, however, it is necessary to assert what is important to a spouse and how an amicable agreement could be reached.
