Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is having quite the rookie season on Real Housewives of Orange County. Elizabeth told her RHOC co-stars Gina Kirschenheiter and Kelly Dodd that she was under a gag order concerning her divorce from billionaire Bernt Bodal.
After their divorce was finalized in July of 2020, Elizabeth received a paltry $31,000 a month in support from her ex-husband. Elizabeth’s co-stars were tired of her bragging about her wealth. So, Elizabeth gifted them each a “badass” Louis Vuitton face mask that retails for $490.
Welcome back to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Where, in case you missed it, the apocalypse has happened. After weeks of encroaching panic, the coronavirus has descended upon the OC. Production has been shut down indefinitely. The ‘Wives are all in isolation and have resorted to documenting their lives in quarantine via iPhone. It’s scary. It’s more than a little triggering to watch play back nine months after we all just lived through it. But it’s also a fascinating experiment in keeping the cameras rolling during a truly unprecedented time in history.
Unsurprisingly, all of the women are handling the pandemic differently. Braunwyn Windham-Burke has gone digital with her sobriety journey by attending AA meetings online. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is focused on helping animals while spreading ridiculous conspiracy theories on her social media. Shannon Beador has forced her family into full lockdown mode. And Kelly Dodd is busy giving a giant middle finger to lockdown protocols altogether, jetting off to New York City to visit her boyfriend.
Real Housewives of Orange County fans know that Kelly Dodd has no problem sharing her opinions publicly, even about (typically) private matters. She recently called out her ex-husband Michael Dodd for not seeing their daughter Jolie Dodd for five months.
Now, she’s calling him out for not seeing her in six months. No one could blame her for being upset if her daughter’s upset, but is making this super public the way to go? She sure thinks so. Hopefully, she ran it by Jolie before she put Michael on blast again.
During a recent Real Housewives of Orange County episode, Braunwyn Windham-Burke said she was happy to be more present for her seven children now that she’s sober. Then, we watched her walk them up the stairs.
After that, she had a conversation with her husband Sean Burke, continuing to talk about being more present for her kids. Then, the editors did her dirty cutting to a scene of the nanny getting the kids ready for bed while Braunwyn filmed a scene with Sean. Oh, the irony. I’m not gonna lie, I was cringing during that moment. Now, Kelly Dodd is calling out Braunwyn for her reliance on nannies.
I’m not gonna lie, I kind of forgot about Michael Dodd. With all the talk about Kelly Dodd’s new man Rick Leventhal and zero mentions of her ex-husband, it was easy to forget the guy.
And, apparently, according to Kelly, Michael has forgotten all about seeing their daughter Jolie Dodd.
Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Kelly Dodd married Rick Leventhal.
Last week, the polarizing reality TV star made headlines for a controversial bridal shower gift. She received a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat as a present and wore it in photos she shared on social media. Hopefully, her wedding doesn’t cause the same level of drama on social media.
