He showed up again a couple days later and was informed Noella was out of town. An unidentified female who was staying at the home told him Noella would be gone for a month.

The female proceeded to close the door on the process server. “She sounded like a middle-aged female,” he wrote. The official showed up to the home 4 more times before finally serving a Jane Doe who opened the door.

He said the woman was around 38 and 5’11 but refused to give her name. Creditors Adjustment claims this service is proper and are demanding their lawsuit move forward.

As Radar first reported, Creditors Adjustment accuses Noella of failing to pay $293,832.22 to the law firm Fried and Goldsman. The lawyers worked on the case from 2014 until 2018. The debt collector says the money was due on February 26, 2018.

Noella hired the law firm in 2014 to represent her in a “paternity action” with her ex, who she shares a daughter. At the time, she was known as Noella Nance and had an address in Palm Desert.

A source close to Noella disputed the debt and called the lawsuit “unfounded.” We’re told the Bravo star believes her ex-husband was ordered to cover the legal bill in their divorce settlement.
