When the last Real Housewives of Orange County season started, I could not stand Kelly Dodd. As more episodes aired, I grew to be even more annoyed. Then there were was a slight shift in the tide and I actually felt bad for Kelly during that hellish Ireland trip.
Even though I couldn’t believe Kelly brought up Tamra Judge’s relationship with her estranged daughter on top of pretty much everything else Kelly did before that trip, I still felt like Tamra, Heather Dubrow, and Shannon Beador were ganging up on Kelly and trying to instigate her. I am still trying to figure out how I feel about Kelly, but she definitely earned her spot and allowed us all to move on from the Brooks Ayers saga that was still lingering from the season before. That’s why I’m pretty pleased Andy Cohen confirmed Kelly’s return.

It seemed pretty obvious that Kelly was back filming for the upcoming season, but I’m happy it’s officially official. I want to determine what my stance is on Kelly. Aside from trying to figure out if I actually like her, I want to see what kind of drama she gets into and with who, especially after some recent comments that Andy made.
During the NBCUniversal Upfront, Andy teased, “The new season is, it’s shifting alliances. I think you’re gonna be surprised by Kelly Dodd this season.”
Is Kelly a part of the shifting alliances? What if she, Shannon, and Tamra are all friends now? I can’t believe that one, but then again anything is possible on this show.
Andy vaguely added, “And some old Housewives [are] returning and it’s really good.” I assume that means Lydia McLaughlin. And maybe a Jeana Keough cameo – I’m just throwing that one out there based on past seasons since she seems to always show up to hang with Vicki Gunvalson once a season.
