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.
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.”
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!
Whether they are advertising for a designer or just showing off their beach bodies, there’s no shortage of bikini-clad reality TV stars Instagram. Look below for pics from Ladies of London‘s Caroline Stanbury, Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Melissa Gorga, Teen Mom‘s Farrah Abraham, Vanderpump Rules starScheana Marie, Real Housewives of Atlanta‘sKandi Burruss, and more.
The discord between Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd went from zero to one hundred – real quick. Right off the bat these two did not get along and there was really no real reason for it. That initial tension escalated into some insanely sketchy shit: i.e. Shannon’s out of control ’70s themed party.
It’s still up for debate whether or not Shannon ambushed Kelly when her rude friends took digs at Kelly and her marriage. It looks super shady in all honesty. I don’t believe for one second that Shannon had no idea that those women knew Kelly, but it’s hard for me to figure out if that whole interaction was premeditated or not. And Shannon and Kelly have very different views of their history.
The show begins with a lot of banter between Heather and her assistant Natalie. While I think they’re cute together, I’m getting to the meat and potatoes (two things Heather probably doesn’t eat!) to focus on their discussion of Real Housewives of Orange County because the podcast is almost 90 minutes.
Heather warns there are no “bridge episodes” this season and it’s a nonstop whirlwind. “Something happens every week of this entire season – it was nuts.”
