The Bravo star admits they have only spoken to each other about their 11-year-old daughter Jolie, but told Us that Michael is “a great guy, awesome dad and good husband.” However, despite her kind words, Dodd does not see them getting back together like they did after she filed for divorce in 2012.

“I tried,” Dodd said of her marriage. “I see what my parents were like…I don’t want that for my daughter. I don’t want that kind of relationship for her. I want her to know what a really loving, passionate, calm relationship is like.”

While Dodd said she is not ready to date, she jokingly told Us she’s looking for a “rent-a-husband.”

“I need like a rent-a-husband. Just setting up TVs, setting up bills, direct TV, getting cable. I haven’t done that since I was in college,” Dodd told Us. “He [Michael] seriously was my assistant; he would do everything for me. And now I feel like I’m overwhelmed.”

In September, Dodd told the Daily Mail that she planned on leaving her husband.

“Our marriage is over, I’m out of there!” she said. “We’ve had problems for years and I’ve had enough. I’m done with our marriage. It’s just a case where two people can’t get along. It’s best if we went our separate ways and concentrate on our daughter.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
