Her “friend” Vicki Gunvalson introduced a woman to Kelly’s (very recent) ex-husband Michael Dodd and went on double dates with the duo without telling Kelly. Who does that? Of course, Michael was going to end up dating someone, but why is Vicki hanging out with them and keeping it from Kelly? SHADY.
During last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Kelly dished on the Vicki betrayal and gave some post-divorce updates. Andy Cohen asked if she and Michael are getting along these days and she insisted, “We are best friends- better than we were married.” She also shared that her favorite thing about being single is “I don’t have to answer to anyone?”
And then after that round of fun questions, she got to the Vicki drama. Kelly Dodd explained why she was so upset: “She didn’t tell me, which is what the whole thing was. I had to read it from one of my friends that writes for Daily Mail and she texted me right before she got there. I was happy to have her come, but it was her reaction to me what… She really could have cleared it up and said ‘This is what happened,’ but she lied and she didn’t tell me.” #TeamKelly
Even though Kelly made her point very clear when she answered the first question, a viewer still asked, “Why are you so mad that your husband is dating? You didn’t want him, so why do you care who he’s dating or that Vicki double dated with him?” Kelly answered, “Well, I don’t care that he dates. I want him to date. I’m friends with him. I just didn’t like the fact that I was blindsided by a text when she was coming over. She could have just simply told me. That was the whole thing.” Fair enough.
The bartenders asked Kelly if Vicki’s Biblical references in her apology to Eddie Judge were manipulative or sincere. At first, she said, “I think she’s full of shit.” Then she backtracked and said, “I don’t know. I think it was sincere. I think she was crying.” Was Kelly joking with her initial response? Or was that how she truly felt?
The Vicki questions continued when a caller asked, “Since you were just betrayed by Vicki, do you think Shannon [Beador] and Tamra [Judge] were too quick to forgive her and do you think they’ll regret it?” Kelly answered, “No, they’re not going to regret it because they’re still good friends right now. Ummmmm. I don’t know.”
Another viewer asked, “When Shannon was on Watch What Happens Live, it sounded like she really did not like the new girls. What do you think about them?” Kelly joked, “Shannon doesn’t like any of the new girls at first, but Shannon’s awesome.” Obviously, Kelly was referencing her very rocky start with Shannon with the first part of that answer.
Kelly shared, “I like the new girls. I do, I like them. They like me.” She emphasized, “I like the new girls. They’re nice and they’re fun. I don’t know. I like them.” So far it seems like Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson are solid additions to the cast. At the very least, they seem like they’re bringing more to the table than the three cast members who left after last season- even though that was far from a tough task to complete.
