Kelly Dodd has found herself between a rock and a hard place. That rock is Vicki Gunvalson, her old pal; and the hard place is Shannon Beador, the enemy she’s now bonded with. I mean Kelly saved Shannon from Stockholm Syndrome at the hands of Tamra Judge.
After dedicating her blog to the people of Houston, Kelly launches right into breaking down the Real Housewives Of Orange County drama. One such gem is Kelly’s observation that, “If Peggy has resting bitch face, then Tamra definitely has chronic bitch mouth.” True! “I didn’t understand why Tamra said she wanted to give Peggy a second chance,” continues Kelly, “then insults her by saying she has a ‘resting bitch face’?”
Moving on, Kelly reports that her relationship with Shannon is “moving beyond reconciliation with Shannon to real friendship” and “starting to show signs of resilience.” Does Shannon agree with this opinion? Well, nothing like booze to bring broads together, right?!
“I believe Shannon and I were meant to be friends. It’s just a shame that it has taken over a year for our friendship to blossom, but, as you can see, we are both happy to have moved on,” Kelly writes in her Bravo blog. “Twice now we have tackled difficult topics and conversations, calmly talked about our tumultuous past and ended up in a much better place. We agreed that false rumors, regardless of the source or messenger, are extremely hurtful to us and our families.” I believe this is called growing up, and I’ve heard it’s hard to do!
One thing Kelly can’t get over, though, is Shannon’s “hideous” green blouse. “I hope to God she retires it, or better yet, burns it.” DITTO.
Kelly also makes it clear that her friendship with Vicki is staying put – and Meghan’s “comments about me being manipulated by Vicki, nothing could be further from the truth.”
“I decide who to befriend, and who to trust based upon the chemistry I have with that person, and how they treat me,” Kelly insists. “With the notable exception of Vicki playing it safe in Ireland by not coming to my defense, Vicki has always been a fun, loyal, trust.”
So just to get this straight – Kelly thinks Shannon is manipulated by Tamra; yet it is inconceivable to consider that Vicki has manipulated Kelly? I think Kelly is right – she and Shannon are birds of a loony feather!
Kelly also mentions that she’s confused by Peggy’s cancer situation and warns there’s more where that comes from. Could Kelly become the Nu-Meghan? Maybe, but she vows not to be the Nu-Tamra! “We are all a little perplexed trying to understand Peggy’s health situation. It seems the cancer sleuths are on the case again. Stay tuned to see if we can figure out what’s really going on.” [HUGE GROAN]
