Friday 24 June 2022 12:15 AM RHOC star Noella Bergener reveals she is back on Seeking dating site trends now
Real Housewives of Orange County star Noella Bergener has revealed she is back on the market and has returned to 'sugar dating' website Seeking, where she is now the newest ambassador.
Earlier this year the 36-year-old confirmed she was dating new boyfriend Bobby Schubenski following her messy divorce from husband James Bergener, with whom she shares a two-year-old son.
But the reality star on Thursday announced she is single once again and is now an active member of Seeking.com, previously known as SeekingArrangement, where she met her now former spouse.
Noella raised a few eyebrows and was accused of being a 'gold digger' from critics and even her own co-stars in April, when she made the bombshell revelation on-air during the RHOC reunion on Bravo with host Andy Cohen.

However, it seems the mom-of-two is shrugging off the haters through her new partnership with the dating site that will also involve her new sex toy line.
Previously, Seeking, which was founded in 2006, had been known as an online platform where young, attractive women - or 'sugar babies' - could meet typically older, wealthy men - or 'sugar daddies' who could offer them financial assistance as part of a transaction relationship.
The website has since rebranded into a dating website where 'attractive and successful people upgrade their lifestyles through open and honest relationships.'
As its newest brand representative and returning user, Noella told DailyMail.com she encourages single men and women to 'date up.'
'You can't compare Seeking to a regular dating site, because it isn't one. Seeking is a chance to empower yourself and to find what you're actually looking for instead of going on another disaster date,' she said.
The Real Housewife revealed her 'first instinct' was to go back on the website after she felt it was time to be 'proactive and serious' about dating after being left by her ex-husband last July.
'I'm not the type of girl to just go to a bar, or have my orthodontist set me up,' she told DailyMail.com.
'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.'
Noella revealed she was first introduced to the platform seven years ago after giving birth to her daughter from a previous relationship in 2015.
'I hadn't had sex in 18 months. I gave birth. I was breastfeeding. I was busy, you know?' she said.
