Briana Renee just went through a very, very ugly divorce. A divorce involving accusations and assault, pedophilia and bestiality.
We're not kidding.
The Little Women: LA star just went through it. As in: the divorce between Briana and Matt Grundhoffer was finalized a week ago.
But you know what they say, right?
When one falls off an abusive horse/husband, one must dust oneself off and get right back up on another, non-abusive husband?
We may be paraphrasing a long-time quote there, and we may be writing lots of words here to build up the suspense, but our overall point it this:
Renee is engaged! Only days after getting divorced!
The ex-reality star revealed last Thursday that her boyfriend, Tim Manning, popped the question earlier this month, on October 5.
The surprise proposal took place while the two were taking family photos on the beach ... see above. Magical!
She shared the exciting news on Instagram, along with photos of the big moment itself, along the reactions of her two children and Tim’s son.
“Our official family, turned surprise engagement, photos (October 5, 2019),” Renee wrote as a caption, adding:
“Soon I will be marrying my best friend, my greatest supporter, most incredible father, and my best jinx opponent."
"I can hardly wait.. and I think our kids are just as excited.”
We very much hope this marriage goes smoother for Renee.
As previously documented at unfortunate length, her previous marriage ended after Briana and Grundhoffer broke up in November of 2017.
It took two full years for the legal split to be made official, however, with heinous accusations hurled back and forth throughout this time.
Renee ended up filing for a domestic violence restraining order against Matt, citing verbal abuse... Matt’s frequent drinking... and even an incident in which Matt allegedly threatened to kill himself and “kill everyone in the house."
Then then was this:
In court papers made public this past May, Renee said Matt once gave her his Facebook password as a gesture to prove she could trust him.
But this backfired wildly when Renee came across messages that expressed a lust for incest, bestiality, and pedophilia.
By submitting these messages to a judge, the reality star was able to secure the aforementioned restraining order.
Renee claimed in the restraining order request:
"The conversations were recent and involved bestiality and the proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of involving sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship."
“I am fearful for him to be left alone with our minor son.
Elsewhere, in more disturbing news, Grundhoffer was accused of sexual abuse by a minor at the facility he worked at as a counselor in 2009.
A trial regarding the matter is set for January 6, 2020.
Renee left Little Women: LA after Season 6 in order to focus on her kids, while she and Matt’s messy divorce played out, both in public and in private.
We wish her the best with this engagement and, hopefully, very long-term and drama-free marriage afterward.
