The addition of Kelly Dodd to Real Housewives of Orange County is the best thing to happen to Vicki Gunvalson. Now that Kelly is constantly stirring shit up, the women are distracted from holding a grudge against Vicki since they are so busy hating on Kelly instead. Kelly has taken it upon herself to be Vicki’s defender, and between supporting Vicki and getting into her own drama, she screams a lot.
Anyone who watched the last RHOC episode knows that Kelly made Heather Dubrow extremely uncomfortable since she tried to kick Kelly out of a party that was supposed to be all about Meghan Edmonds. When that didn’t work, Heather kicked herself out and called her husband crying. Personally, I didn’t get why Heather was crying, but there are plenty of other viewers who took greater issue with the scene. A lot of people came at Heather for ‘pretending to cry’ and she has been adamantly defending herself.
I feel so bad for Meghan Edmonds. I can’t help thinking that she is just way too nice and normal to be on a reality TV show. That’s why I feel so bad for the criticism that she receives. After going through IVF, Meghan is pregnant with her first child. It should be the happiest time of her life, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Ever since last season, RHOC fans have been criticizing Meghan‘s marriage – specifically the way her husband Jim Edmonds treats her. A lot of people have said that he doesn’t seem attentive enough to Meghan, and that’s putting it mildly…very mildly. Even Meghan herself admitted this in one of her Bravo blogs. Meghan posted on social media about an important pregnancy milestone and people are wondering where Jim is, once again.
So, that new girl, huh? Kelly Dodd has been making quite the splash since showing up on this season of Real Housewives of Orange County. Kelly immediately ruffled the feathers of the majority of the women by befriending and defending the exiled Vicki Gunvalson. Of course, I think we’ve all learned to steer clear of Shannon Beador’s bad side as well. Throw in Tamra Judge stirring the already drama-filled pot, and we’ve got a recipe for disaster that just keeps cooking week after week.
After the most recent shenanigans (I cringed watching, to be honest), Kelly is mortified by her behavior, “In case you are wondering, Jolie did not and will not ever watch last night’s episode. My believing that Shannon set me up and my response to Nina and Jaci’s ‘neutrocious’ (yes, I said that) lies will be revisited at the reunion, so Jolie probably will not be watching that either.”
Even though it’s still pretty early on in this season of Real Housewives of Orange County, it seems like Kelly Dodd will end up screaming and insulting people at every big event. So at this point, it isn’t surprising that Kelly ended up stealing the spotlight at a party that was supposed to honor Meghan King Edmonds and her impending pregnancy.
Kelly took the drama to the next level – which again is not at all surprising – when she decided to use the dreaded “C” word as an insult toward Shannon Beador. I would also like to point out that this wasn’t even a turned up party. It was supposed to be a nice, relaxed dinner to serve as Meghan’s last time eating sushi and drinking alcohol before she got pregnant. So it was supposed to be a pretty chill occasion. Not only was Meghan’s celebration ruined, but Shannon obviously takes issue with Kelly using the nasty “C” word in her honor.
In my humble opinion, Meghan Edmonds is way too nice and normal for the insane antics on Real Housewives of Orange County. And I don’t get why she would want to be on this show, especially since these women are all about hogging the spotlight.
The one time when the show should have been about Meghan, it was about everyone else. As per usual, Kelly Dodd went on a rampage against her fellow cast members and everyone forgot they were at a party to celebrate Meghan’s impending pregnancy. I couldn’t imagine that Meghan was at all happy with the shit show that went down and she revealed that I was right.
Well hot damn was that an exciting episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County! Satan is confusing, and so too is Kelly Dodd. My head is still spinning from all the crazy, but I think it may be one of my favorite episodes ever. SO much happened that it was like watching Real Housewives as guest-directed by Quentin Tarantino.
One thing we have definitely learned in our many years observing Housewives in their native environments is that slightly unhinged women do not mix with tables and prostitution whores. Also “mother” and “not a prostitute” are mutually exclusive. No, Kelly didn’t flip a table, but she did flip an entire coven of Housewives and Housewives associates on their heads with expletive-laden, name calling the likes of which Heather Dubrow(who was ironically wearing leopard in a subtle homage to Real Housewives Of New Jersey, I imagine (intentional or ironic!?)) has never heard!
Nevertheless, I can’t help watching the show and feeling bad for Meghan. Even if the editing is just unfavorable, she really deserves more support during such an important time in her life. And that is why I couldn’t help wondering why and how Jim and Meghan decided to have a baby in the first place. Recently, Meghan revealed that here was an ultimatum involved.
