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.
Let’s go back to Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14. We met Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who was actually introduced as a friend of Kelly Dodd’s. So much for that subtitle. They’re definitely not friends anymore.
Braunwyn slammed Kelly for their ideological and political differences. Kelly called Braunwyn a “poser” and a “loser.” They unfollowed each other on Instagram. Kelly accused Braunwyn of constantly handing her kids over to nannies instead of spending time with them. Now, Kelly has found herself in hot water. Again. For the millionth time.
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.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke put the “real” in Real Housewives of Orange County during the Season 15 premiere episode. After apologizing to Emily Simpson (which she initiated on her own) for pushing her away last season and brushing off her comments about Braunwyn’s party habits, she looked into the camera and said “My name is Braunwyn and I’m an alcoholic.”
She also admitted to drinking at least once an hour during a Miami trip with Kelly Dodd to celebrate Rick Leventhal’s birthday because if she didn’t have alcohol, she would have the shakes. Braunwyn even confessed to hiding alcohol bottles and refilling alcohol bottles to keep up appearances. Now, that it’s all out in the open, Braunwyn is opening up about her sobriety journey.
Are you guys ready for Real Housewives of Orange County? They filmed this season during a pandemic, y’all! They came to play and not even Kelly Dodd’s idiotic coronavirus comments could derail this train. So let’s dive in and see what these over-ripe oranges are up to.
We open up with a really ominous beach scene because what is more ominous than Newport Beach. Newport Beach, new cast members, new beginnings, new hips for Emily Simpson. New new new. Everything that you want to see in a fresh season of Real Housewives. And not a Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Judge in sight.
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.
Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is featuring some major changes. The cast was filming during the Covid-19 crises, and it shows how the RHOC ladies grappled with the stress.
This is also the first season without “OG” cast members Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. They walked away when they weren’t offered full-time positions for Season 15. But don’t worry, Tamra and Vicki will never stop commenting on RHOC.
