The Real Housewives Of Orange County alumna Noella Bergener joyously announced on Friday that she is engaged to Bobby Schubenski.
Last summer, Noella, 38, raised eyebrows when she revealed she and Bobby had split and that she had gotten back on the ‘sugar baby’ dating site Seeking, where she met her ex-husband James Bergener.
However, she and Bobby ultimately mended fences, and this week on Friday the 13th they revealed that they had decided to take their romance to the next level.
Both halves of the couple ecstatically posted a picture of Bobby embracing Noella from behind as she flashed his sparkling ring.
‘My heart is full and my hand is heavy,’ the reality star wrote on her Instagram page, which is currently set to private.

Noella first met James Bergener on Seeking when it was still known as Seeking Arrangement and was infamous as a site for ‘sugar daddies’ to meet women.
She was with ‘Sweet James,’ a personal injury lawyer, when she started appearing as a guest star on The Real Housewives Of Orange County in 2019.
They married in 2020 and are now the parents of a three-year-old son James Jr., and Noella also has an eight-year-old daughter Coco.
In 2021, Noella graduated to full-time Housewife and instantly captured attention by gossiping on the air about her and James’ sex dungeon.
That same season, however, the marriage collapsed, and viewers saw Noella dissolving into floods of tears after being served with divorce papers.
The split triggered a long and rancorous legal battle that played out on reality TV, ultimately being finalized in December 2021.
In April 2022, on the season 16 reunion of The Real Housewives Of Orange County, Noella officially declared that she was dating Brad.
It was during that same reunion that she confessed to having met James on Seeking Arrangement, prompting allegations of being a ‘gold digger.’

But that June, having left the show, she revealed that she was single again while announcing a brand partnership with Seeking.
‘I’m not the type of girl to just go to a bar, or have my orthodontist set me up,’ she told DailyMail.com in an interview.
‘It feels awkward when you’re not in control of the situation. With Seeking I find that I’m able to really empower myself to decide who I want,’ she said.
‘I got to the point where I wasn’t gonna go to some bar and meet somebody. I wanted something where there’s a chance for a future – at least a connection.’
