Are Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd on good terms or not? They have supposedly moved on from that double date disaster, but Kelly came for Vicki’s man Steve Lodge during the last episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Kelly also had some choice words for Emily Simpson’s husband Shane Simpson that same party.
Specifically, Kelly called Shane a “little bitch,” which obviously did not sit well with Emily who told Kelly she would “kill” her. There is not a more effective way to rile up a Real Housewife than to mess with her man.
Vicki shared her thoughts on the last episode in a Bravo blog post. Vicki wrote, “I had NO idea that Kelly was going to be so fired up at Tamra’s [Judge] party. Steve has absolutely no desire to be around Kelly, and I think you could clearly see that in his demeanor.”
Vicki continued, “Kelly has been upset with me and accusing me of breaking ‘girl code.’ How this whole social media issue transpired is my friend who was dating Michael [Dodd] briefly spoke to a publicist about her dating Michael. Somehow the article mentioned that ‘I SET THEM UP,’ when the fact is Michael had told us he wanted to meet my friend. ”
She wrote, “Steve is the one who organized the BBQ at our house, and that’s where they met for the first time. Steve was merely clarifying this fact. I mean, what is the big deal here? Kelly divorced Michael, and she was already dating (a lot), so why shouldn’t Michael date who he wants? Personally, I think Kelly is mad at herself for throwing her marriage away and now can’t find what she already had.” Did Vicki throw her own man under the bus with that paragraph in addition to the major digs she took at Kelly? It sure seems like it.
Vicki wrote, “So, in case you didn’t see the sentence that was flashed on the screen, this is the statement Steve clarified on social media:
‘Everybody has to move on, right?” he insisted. “He wasn’t looking for a divorce, so why would she care who he’s dating anyway?'”
She shared, “Kelly’s response back to both of us on social media was, ‘Steve is a douchebag along with his pig of a GF.’ OMG what the heck kind of response is that when all he did was make a statement about her ex-husband dating someone else? What was so wrong about this statement? How does that statement hurt Kelly? Her response back was classless and unwarranted.” At least it was entertaining, unlike the majority of the non-Kelly story lines this season.
Vicki just kept on going: “When Kelly started mouthing off at the party that she had a problem with what Steve said, Steve asked her, ‘What did I say?’ Why couldn’t Kelly answer his simple question? Because the truth is she didn’t know herself. She was trying to cause problems when there wasn’t one. Typical Kelly.” How could she “not know” when it was printed in an article?
Then Vicki accused Kelly of verbal abuse: “The way Kelly verbally abuses people is alarming and quite frankly scary. I can’t even imagine what Michael went through for 14 years of marriage with her. I’ve witnessed it, as well as others out in public, and it’s frightening. When Shane asked her if she was drunk and she said that was her first drink, I didn’t believe it. Maybe the first drink at Tamra’s.”
Vicki claimed that Kelly, “came into the party looking for a fight, and when Steve didn’t play along, she picked a fight with Shane instead. I mean, who acts that way at someone’s home? She called Shane a ‘little bitch,’ and she acted like she didn’t know who he was when they had just met 30 minutes prior. Her outburst was classic Kelly. If you have seen past episodes, there is no surprise in her irrational behavior.” So I guess Vicki and Kelly are not friends these days, or is she just talking using the mindset that she had at the time this was filmed?
Of course Vicki addressed Kelly’s confrontation with Emily and her husband Shane as well. She wrote, “Although I didn’t agree with Emily saying she wanted to ‘kill Kelly,’ I can see why Emily was so upset. Just as Tamra had said, when someone talks crap about your husband/partner, ‘GAME ON.'” But apparently it’s acceptable to talk about someone else’s husband if Vicki is the one doing the talking.
Vicki declared, “I think she’s looking for attention and sympathy but is going about it the wrong way.”
For the millionth time, Vicki clarified the timeline of the double date drama and insisted that Kelly has no reason to be upset by Vicki and Steve going out on double dates with her very recent ex-husband:
“As a side note that most of you aren’t aware of, during the time her ex-husband Michael dated my friend, it lasted less than two months, and I think we had seen them together maybe two or three times. I asked Michael if he had told Kelly (like he said he was going to), and he said no and that he would if the relationship progressed. He said nothing good will come from it and quite frankly it wasn’t any of her business who he was dating. This happened during the holidays while Kelly was in Aspen for almost a month and wasn’t even around. Kelly is living in her own world, she is traveling and doing what she wants to do and is not concerned one bit on what Michael is doing, until it suits her.” Damn. That’s rough.
Vicki concluded, “I don’t like socializing or being around people who can’t control their temper, which clearly Kelly is struggling with. I think Kelly’s anger comes down to one issue, which is Steve and I have a friendship with Michael and spend our time with him and not her. Stay tuned.”
