UPDATE (8/12) - Noella claims she purchased the sunglasses for $99.
The newest cast member of Real Housewives of Orange County, Noelle Bergener, continues showing off her expensive clothing despite her husband being accused of refusing to pay up to Uncle Sam.
The Newport Beach resident shared a selfie taken while she was driving around town. The reality star showed off her Tom Ford sunglasses which retail for around $450.
She captioned the post, "Tom Ford is God." Noella finished off her look with a Pyer Moss all-black turtleneck blouse. The former friend of Braunwyn Windham-Burke has had no problem showing off her pricy wardrobe pieces since she started filming RHOC last week.
Since production started, Noella has hired a hair and makeup team to get her camera ready. Earlier this week, the Bravo star was seen wearing bright blue Off White brand heels which sell for around $1,065.
Noella doesn't appear at all concerned with the $5.8 million lien the IRS filed against James. Her husband is a super successful personal injury lawyer in Orange County. He is well-known around town for plastering his face across billboards.
The federal tax lien was filed on June 3, 2021 and accuses James of refusing to pay up on his 2018 and 2019 bills.
Uncle Sam says Noella's husband owes $1,878,438 for 2018 and $2,166,680 for 2019.
In another lien filed by the State of California, James is accused of owing $1,851,225.04 for 2018 and 2019. The grand total for his tax debt comes to $5,896,343.04.
Despite the tax issues, Noella promised fans that she won't turn into a "Erika Jayne." One follower pleaded with her to not act rich on camera is she was actually not that rich behind-the-scenes.
Noella replied to the message, "Promise to not disappoint."
The new cast member is already brining the drama and the season hasn't even started, Noella will be joining fellow newcomers Nicole James and Dr. Jen Armstrong.
Noella and Dr. Jen Armstrong were both friends with former Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn. Producers decided to fire Braunwyn and replace her with her two friends. The decision came weeks before she decided to split from her husband and move to Hawaii.
Noella recently spilled that she is no longer friends with Braunwyn due to "trust" issues.
