Am I the only one who was a little thrown off by Kelly Dodd being introduced to the Real Housewives of Orange County fans as a friend of Meghan Edmonds? I am just having a lot of trouble seeing the connection there. Meghan is pretty mild mannered and then on the opposite end is Kelly with her explosive personality.
Not only that, but Kelly ended up being fast friends with Meghan’s enemy Vicki Gunvalson which I thought was a really weird immediate move to make. I keep forgetting that Meghan is Kelly’s link to the group for many reasons one of which is that Kelly is always at odds with Meghan’s allies. The whole thing seems weird and I am dying to know what Meghan thinks of her antics from the current season.

I always get so nervous when I introduce people from different friend groups because I have no idea if they’ll get along and I feel like it’s on me if they don’t. In my head, I imagine that is how Meghan felt this season. It has to be so awkward having Kelly come on the show as her friend.
Meghan shared what she thinks about the Kelly-centered controversies in her latest Bravo blog entry. Meghan wrote, “I think that Kelly really seems to want to improve and I truly believe that she felt bad about how she acted at the dinner party. She easily could’ve gotten mad when I was so honest and blunt with her at my house, but the fact that she understood and felt bad, I know she means well. I hope everyone will get to see the real Kelly soon because then you’ll understand why I call her a friend.”
Meghan shared her honest opinion with Kelly, but I thought that it proved that Meghan is a good friend who is willing to be honest with Kelly and call her out on her shit. Truthfully, I understand why Kelly was so heated in response to the other women, but I do think that she channeled her rational frustrations and went way too far.
I am hoping that Meghan is right and that we do see a better side of Kelly, but I kind of doubt that we will. I’m not saying that as a diss to Kelly, but this version of Kelly probably makes for more exciting TV than the nice footage that I assume is laying on the cutting room floor.
TELL US- WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KELLY SO FAR THIS SEASON? ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT SHE & MEGHAN WERE PREVIOUSLY FRIENDS
