Kelly Dodd Doesn’t Cower To Bullies And Is Fed Up With Shannon Beador’s Victim Act

Kelly Dodd is tired of being blamed for everything on Real Housewives Of Orange County – I mean, what about her traumatic trip to Ireland? Doesn’t that count?! Where’s her apology, Shannon Beador? Kelly apparently forgot everything is All. About. Shannon. Everything! And when it’s not All. About. Shannon, it’s All. About. Heather Dubrow.

Kelly didn’t blog last week because she was on a vacation to London, but also because she “really needed a break from the dealing with the fallout of the mean girl bullying.”


She returned this week to vent her frustrations over the finale and wonder why she is the only one expected to apologize? I mean, is Kelly like the “shit disturber” or emotions vacuum cleaner?

“Watching the episode, it’s clear to me that from the start, Shannon, Tamra [Judge] and Heather were all in spin mode trying to rewrite history and distort or deflect their behavior.”

Kelly calls out the women for their egregious behavior:

  • Tamra was focused on Vicki [Gunvalson] spreading rumors. Once again Tamra talked about killing somebody, in this case Vicki.”
  • Shannon was trying to act indignant again about what she deemed Vicki’s lies. As you saw later, Vicki stood her ground and refused to be labeled a liar again.”
  • Heather claims to have learned ‘who we (Vicki and I) are’ based upon how we behaved on the bus. The truth is that it’s Heather that was exposed. The Fancy Pants façade fell away and Heather’s true self righteous, pretentious self is on full display. She then tells Terry that my belief that I was ganged up on was ‘a joke’.”

“I felt they owed me an apology,” Kelly scoffs. “It was strange to hear Shannon complain that I didn’t reach out to her, since the phone lines run both ways. So yes, the spin was in.”

Instead, following Ireland, and the 15 days Kelly spent remiss begging Shannon’s forgiveness  – again – Kelly “met with Meghan and Vicki and discussed the ambush that I experienced on the bus trip from hell.”

Kelly wasn’t too excited about attending Drop Your Donuts On The Floor party, and facing the “devious agenda” of the “mean girl clique.”

“I was apprehensive about going because the clique’s (Heather, Tamra, Shannon) bullying antics were still fresh in my mind,” explains Kelly. “Vicki and I were invited. Didn’t that mean we were welcome? I guess not.”

“I was fearful of another ambush. I am pretty sure Vicki was too,” adds Kelly. “I’ve seen this now several times from these mean girls. Try to set me up, then when I catch wind of their scheme and it blows up in their face, they deny, lie, deflect, call me crazy, repeat. Regardless, I am an optimist and try not to hold grudges.”

“Almost from the start I could sense that we would eventually have to deal with the elephant in the room. For some reason, Tamra said I shouldn’t use that term. I think she meant in front of certain people. I am not sure whom Tamra was talking about. Of course, the elephant in the room was how we all acted and what was said on the bus ride from hell. Everything that afternoon seemed to be leading up to that.”

“It didn’t take long for the clique to separate from the group, all the while making snarky comments about us,” recalls Kelly. “Quickly, Vicki and I began to feel we were being snubbed and alienated. I think it’s ironic that, at lunch with Shannon after the ’70s party, she felt she could call me out for a lack of etiquette, when one of the first rules of etiquette is to make your guests feel welcome.”

Kelly had hoped to inspire a little of Heather’s infamous class by bringing  Etiquette for Dummies as a hostess gift, but realizing Shannon has ZERO sense of humor, decided against it. “Now I regret holding back,” she muses.

Instead it was Tamra “playing her usual mean girl, s*** disturber role,” who brought the “hateful ‘gifts’ just to stir the pot.”

Kelly knew “it was about to blow up” when Tamra handed Vicki her gift. Aiming to “keep the peace” Kelly apologized to Shannon, “despite my best judgment.”

“It seemed my apology wasn’t good enough. It’s never good enough. I don’t know why I bother trying,” sighs Kelly, “when Shannon continues to hold a grudge.”

“I have learned by now that Shannon creates her own false reality,” Kelly continues. “She convinces herself that she did nothing wrong, never does anything wrong, and is always looking to place the blame on somebody else. Then she expects an apology from that person for some reason.”

Nor was Kelly surprised by “puppet-master, self-appointed ringleader and chief interloper” Heather needing to “jump in and try to take control of the conversation.”

“Then she started trying to play shrink again, telling me I’m insecure and having a mental breakdown,” writes Kelly in her Bravo blog. “You are no more qualified to evaluate someone’s mental health than you are being a Michelin rated chef. Oh that’s right, you don’t cook. Enough with your self-righteousness!”

Kelly concludes by stating “that these mean, cliquey women have at least one thing in common; they all have no reservations about confronting people.”

“They like to get in your face and assert their self-perceived dominance. Just because you have the balls to confront somebody doesn’t mean your should. Especially since Vicki, Meghan and I will not cower to bullies.” Well, OK!
