Kelly Dodd is no stranger to showing it all on Real Housewives of Orange County. She clearly isn’t afraid to say what she means or call out the tres amigas. In other words, Kelly is carrying this season on her back. Tamra Judge said prior to the start of the season that Gina Kirschenheiter was going to be the rockstar to watch. I guess now it makes sense that Tamra would say this, considering she’s on the outs with Kelly.
It’s definitely Kelly who carries the show. She is not afraid to put all the worst parts of herself on TV for our entertainment. Lately, a lot of good things have been coming her way. She is now engaged to Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal. Her relationship with Rick is a positive, and interestingly, she doesn’t seem to want to show this on RHOC.
You guys I’m sorry – I am having Thanksgiving fever and 15 houseguests, and I just cannot get it together with the Real Housewives Of Orange County nonsense today.
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are like your mother and your mother-in-law at the same holiday dinner. They’re not gonna speak or look at each other. But, they are going to viciously jab from all corners until it all comes bubbling to the surface over the way to make gravy or something.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke invited all the women to Miami so they can understand her better. Apparently, we’re now defining our personalities by cities, so Braunwyn is a Miami person. In Miami, she liked having sex with her husband, clubbed constantly, and wore skanky clothes to the grocery store. Whereas in Orange County, Braunwyn has to hide her wild side? I don’t get it… How was Braunwyn doing all this partying in between 52 pregnancies, nursing 19 babies, and also well, ostensibly, parenting? We don’t ever get a clear answer about why they left Miami, just like we don’t get a clear answer about why this is the sad-sack trip RHOC got this season. I blame Tamra because I blame her for everything.
Just like many viewers, Kelly Dodd has had it with the Tres Amigas. She’s had up and down relationships with Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson for years, but it really seemed like she had a genuine friendship with Shannon Beador. So much for that. Thanks to those train rumors and some Jim Bellino interference, their bond has been broken.
During last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode, a post-strip club Kelly hated on Shannon’s hairstyle. I have to give props to Shannon for switching up her look. Was it my favorite look? No. Was it lost on me that she copied Tamra? Absolutely not. Nevertheless, Kelly’s comments were unnecessary. To make matters worse she said that women over fifty shouldn’t have long hair. That’s far from the most offensive thing that Kelly has ever said. Nevertheless, the RHOC viewers took issue with her remarks and Kelly responded.
Kelly Dodd has been a very busy Housewife on this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. When Kelly is not slamming Vicki Gunvalson’s very existence, gonging Shannon Beador or dating a plastic surgeon, she has been fending off ugly rumors about herself. Rumors like supposedly being banned from her daughter’s school and participating in a Midnight Sex Train to Georgia.
Most recently, there have been whispers about Kelly allegedly pushing her mother down the stairs, which she emphatically denies. Of course, Tamra Judge claims she was just whispering the information to anyone who would listen to “support” Kelly. We all know spreading unsubstantiated gossip is the best way to show our concern for our friends! Kelly has been estranged from her mother for two years and recently offered some additional details about her family drama and the alleged stairs incident.
Poor Vicki Gunvalson, can’t
we she get a break? After receiving a humiliating demotion on Real Housewives of Orange County, other troubles continue to plague Vicki. The serial liar black cloud known as Brooks Ayers just won’t go away. Viewers took a long and painful journey while Vicki was involved with Brooks. The man was responsible for quite possibly the most devious scandal in Housewives history, and Vicki stood by his side every step of the way.
During Victim and Brooks’ courtship, Vicki managed to lose fans, friends, and her dignity. Her blind devotion to someone lying about having cancer resulted in some severe consequences. Vicki didn’t just invite Brooks into her love tank, she invited him to do business with her. Vicki’s Vodka was a
total failure business venture created in the hopes of fattening their wallets and keeping Brooks in new dentures. It didn’t exactly turn out that way. Even though the couple is done, in March of this year, Vicki sued Brooks for breach of written and verbal agreements, as well as fraud. But Brooks has another plan and it doesn’t include writing Vick a check. Thus the saga continues in the agonizing neverending tale of Vicki and Brooks.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough is undeniably an OG of the OC. No matter how much Vicki Gunvalson claims she is responsible for the entire Housewives franchise, Jeana was right there with Queen Vicki in the beginning. Jeana left the show after five seasons and has popped up on occasion since then. It is difficult to imagine Jeana fitting in with today’s cast, like dramatic Shannon Beador, out-of-control Kelly Dodd and exhibitionist Braunwyn Windham-Burke. And we all know how much Jeana loves Tamra Judge!
When Jeana was a Housewife, much of her storyline centered around her children, sons Shane Keough and Colton Keough and daughter Kara Keough. Her marriage to Matt Keough was a bit of a mystery and their marital status was confusing. The couple was separated and Jeana dated a bit while filming. Over the years, there have been rumors that Jeana and Matt were divorced. Now, Jeana is clearing up her marital status once and for all.
Kelly Dodd has Ramona Singer to thank for introducing her to new fiancé Rick Leventhal. Yes, Ramona the woman who won’t let anyone else on Real Housewives of New York get a modicum male attention is actually a successful matchmaker.
Rick and Kelly started dating after they met in the Hamptons at the end of the summer and their relationship has moved at lightning pace. They got engaged after just a few months together and Rick hasn’t really met Kelly’s daughter Jolie. Yes, they’ve FaceTimed, but that’s it. Wow. At least, Jolie will (obviously) have some role in the wedding festivities, but what about the Housewives? Obviously, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are not going to plan a bachelorette party. Vicki did say that Kelly got engaged for a storyline, after all.
Jeana Keough has been wearing the same hairstyle since the eighties, but that doesn’t mean her head isn’t full of great ideas! Jeana was, of course, present at Bravo Con this past weekend. People who couldn’t attend the way overpriced convention were able to catch Jeana on the Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen stage for a hot second this past Sunday. I mean it when I say that I admire Jeana for amping her face up a bit, and keeping that hair. Hot roller bangs forever!
Was anyone else beyond excited to catch WWHL last Sunday? You could feel Andy’s excitement and it was like he read my mind by closing out the show with Kim Zolciak Biermann’s Don’t Be Tardy. Anyways, for those who watched, you know we really didn’t get to hear much from the Real Housewives of Orange County on stage. There were so many people in attendance, so many Bravolebrities, that the interviews had little info. That doesn’t mean that Jeana was quiet. In fact, she shared some amazing ideas in interviews at the convention.
