Vicki Gunvalson Discusses Her Fight With Kelly Dodd; Says They “Whoop It Up A Lot” On Season 13 Of Real Housewives Of Orange County

After a painfully boring 12th season, the Real Housewives of Orange County really owes the fandom. The trailer for Season 13 was just released and it looks promising.

After two seasons of loyal friendship, Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are at odds after Vicki went on a double date with her boyfriend Steve Lodge, Kelly’s ex Michael Dodd, and one of Vicki’s friends. Kelly and Michael just got divorced. Vicki is the one who set up Michael with her friend.Of course, Kelly would be upset. Plus Vicki did this during filming. It just screams like a ploy for a story line, if you ask me.

Does Kelly Dodd Have A New Man?

Rumors circulated that Vicki Gunvalson set up Kelly Dodd’s ex-husband Michael Dodd with a new lady, which did not sit well with Kelly (allegedly). Does Kelly have a new love interest as well?

It’s safe to assume that there won’t be an official confirmation or denial of this until the next Real Housewives of Orange County season airs, but it sure does seem like Kelly has a new man. Or, at the very least, she is strongly hinting at it.

Kelly is done with Michael

After two seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County talking about how her daughter’s life could be better if she got a divorce, Kelly Dodd is now officially single.

Kelly and Michael Dodd’s divorce has been processed and finalized. Now I just can’t wait for a whole season of single Kelly Dodd and single Shannon Beador going out on the town and turning up. This is exactly what the show needs.

At this point, it looks like Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson will be on opposite couches during the next Real Housewives of Orange County reunion (and the new season hasn’t even started).

Kelly went from being Vicki’s most loyal friend in the cast to dragging Vicki and boyfriend Steve Lodge on Twitter.

When a couple divorces, it is expected for them to go through child custody negotiations, but what about friendship custody negotiations? Obviously that’s not a legal matter, but sometimes it can be tough to pick sides when two friends break up. Apparently Kelly Dodd and Michael Dodd are sharing custody of Vicki Gunvalson in the wake of their split.

Based on watching Real Housewives of Orange County, I had no idea that Vicki and Michael had any sort of relationship, but it turns out that Vicki’s man Steve Lodge and Michael have a strong bond. Again, this is something I never picked up on, but now Vicki and Steve are hanging with Michael sans Kelly and they found him a new love interest.

It was tough watching Kelly Dodd’s relationship with Michael Dodd fall apart during the last Real Housewives of Orange County season. She talked a lot about the idea of divorcing so their daughter Jolie could have two happy parents.

Kelly announced that she and Michael are divorcing before the season ended and now they are trying to work out the details for the sake of their daughter.

Shannon Beador & David Beador

2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!

Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walters husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.

Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!

Kelly Dodd

This season, Kelly Dodd joined the ranks of Bravo’s unsurprising divorces. Kelly filed for divorce from Michael Dodd, her husband of 11 years, two months ago after viewers witnessed them fighting and trash talking each other for two seasons on Real Housewives Of Orange County.

Not even some sage advice about marriage and intimacy from Vicki Gunvalson could put MiKelly back together again! Imagine that… (sarcasm). What’s unique about Kelly’s situation, however, is that this is actually the second time she’s filed for divorce from Michael – and this time she hopes to see it through to the finish line. Kelly shares that they’re already working out a custody agreement for Jolie, 12.
