Danny Bonaduce Divorce Final, Wife to Get $10,000 a Month

After almost 18 years of marriage, Danny and Gretchen Bonaduce's divorce was made final in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday.

Gretchen filed for divorce from "The Partridge Family" star in April 2007 citing irreconcilable differences. In the final settlement, Gretchen was awarded their 2008 Ford truck and house in the Hollywood Hills, and Danny has been ordered to pay his ex $10,000 a month in spousal support. He will also fork out $3,000 in child support for each of their two children, as well as $1,930 monthly for each of their health insurance needs.

The papers also state that both parents will have joint legal and physical custody over daughter Isabella, 13, and son Dante, 7.

The monthly payout will be a pay raise for Gretchen, who earned an average of $3,750 per month in wages in salary in 2006 and $3,355 in 2007.

Danny sealed a $500,000 contract as a contributor on the Adam Carolla Radio Show and $280,000 to host "I Know My Kid's a Star."

According to the settlement, Gretchen has also been shopping around a reality show called "Relatively Talented" and another show about her band music career. She also has plans for a clothing line.

Danny, who was awarded sole ownership of their company Gravel Tones Productions, has been busy developing reality shows with names like "Last Man Standing", "Unsigned Band" and "Royalty Show," where the average American dates a royal.

But it looks as though the "Breaking Bonaduce" star's top professional priority might solve his newly single status. The divorce documents detail his intention to produce and star in "The Next Mrs. Bonaduce," where women compete to, well, the name says it all.
