Kary Brittingham struggled during ‘RHOD’ season 5
As RHOD’s fifth season came to a close, the ladies reunited to talk about their experiences while filming. Kary opened up about how she struggled with making the series when her marriage “fell apart.”
“That was a really hard season for me and watching it makes me realize how much it hurt me and how much I struggled in my life,” Kary revealed during the reunion. “When I looked at it, I realized how much pain I was in. My marriage was falling apart and I didn’t want to admit it.”

“After the show ended, Eduardo and I had to have a real heart-to-heart talk and we decided we needed to go our separate ways. We just told our kids,” she explained. “Obviously, I’m really scared and I think I definitely tried to hide what I was going through and I’m very ashamed of my behavior that my kids saw that. I really regret it. I’m grateful to my friends for pointing it out and it really made me take a closer look at what I was going through.”
