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.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day and like all days – and holidays and visits to the doctor or grocery store, or when one buys shoes, or brushes teeth, or drinks tea – our favorite reality stars took to Instagram and twitter to thank their mothers for creating them, or to thank their children for putting up with them.
Above, Ramona Singer shared, “Love being her mother @averysinger.”

Shannon will be joining Vicki, Tamra Judge, and the newly returning (and insanely boring) Lydia McLaughlin. I just want to know how I’m hearing about this decision before hearing a confirmation that Kelly Dodd will be back. Love her or hate her, we need Kelly back on this show.
