I’ll admit I am one of the shameful people who thought the return of Heather Dubrow to Real Housewives of Orange County was going to be a major uplift to the franchise. I guess I’m not mad. Just disappointed. While there is still space to enjoy the pomp and circumstance of all the plastic surgeon lawsuit drama, we weren’t born yesterday. Authentic reactions and conversations between the Housewives is always best. I wonder what RHOC’s biggest fan thinks of all this…
Kelly Dodd hasn’t kept her obsession with all things Bravo and Real Housewives of Orange County very quiet since her firing from the show. She’s come forward with statements about being much happier and healthier since her time away from filming. She’s also done her best to knock Andy Cohen down a few pegs on her podcast. Most recently, though, she’s come for the ratings of RHOC altogether.
In a Monday morning tweet, Kelly shared a ratings post about RHOC. The post indicated that episode 4 of season 16 only had about 822,000 viewers. Kelly asked, “Wait, wasn’t I the ratings problem ? Wasn’t there a boycott ?? We got over a million viewers 14 out of 16 weeks last season despite HUGE competition from election coverage on the news !!! This year ? #RHOC16 under a million 3x in 4 weeks !” Kelly also called out Andy Cohen in her post saying, “Hey @Andy How’s that reboot going ???” The gall!

For once, Andy actually got down in the mud with the former Orange holder. Andy replied to Kelly’s mess on Tuesday morning saying, “Good morning! Reboot going great. Feels like a return to form for #RHOC. Look at the delayed numbers, not live. That’s what’s measured.” As they say in New York, CLIP!
Several of Andy’s followers rejoiced in the take down. One said “[Kelly] got served…stop the bitterness girl.” There were plenty of mic-drops and ‘Who gonna check me boo’ gifs to go around too.
Kelly has yet to fight back against Andy’s correction. I’m just not sure what she’s going for with all of this mess. Is biting the hand that feeds really a great strategy to finding some form of employment? Her problematic behaviors have also gotten her canned from other companies. I know that podcast she’s shilling can’t be paying the bills. Maybe 2022 will bring her some new hobbies.
