The season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County is just a month away and Bravo fans everywhere can’t wait! All of the season 10 ladies are back plus one addition who we hear is a perfect fit to the original housewives franchise!
The Daily Dish revealed that Kelly Meza-Dodd is originally from Arizona and ended up in San Francisco for years, which makes total sense since her husband is in the tech business. Then she moved to the O.C. a few years ago with her husband Michael and daughter Jolie. Kelly is a stay at home mom and this season we will see her working through some marital problems with husband Michael. Not only that, Kelly’s younger brother Eric and mom Bobbi also live with them! While the marital problems story line has been done over, and over, and over again I think her family dynamic will be refreshing and I look forward to “meeting” them!
Kelly’s connection to the season 10 cast is Meghan King Edmonds, and it will be interesting to see if she was brought on as an ally to Meghan against the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson! In the RHOC trailer the women seem to like Kelly and it will be interesting to see whose side she stands on when the season is over; according to Kelly’s Bravo bio she “befriends outcast Vicki despite warnings from her bestie Meghan.” It’s funny that Meghan’s considered her “bestie” because after looking and looking I gave up on trying to find a picture of them together; it’s nowhere to be found!
Kelly is an avid sports fan and she loves supporting Jolie at cheerleading competitions and other activities that she’s involved in! Her love of sports goes beyond her own daughter though; she’s been spotted cheering on professional sports teams throughout Southern California!
Personally I’m a bit confused by Kelly’s situation. When it first came out in the press that she was joining the show Kelly was said to be the C.O.O of Kiss Me Mirrors, but months later she is a stay at home mom; something definitely happened here!
Kelly’s outspoken with a hot temper; the perfect housewives combination! In the RHOC trailer she is even seen calling one of her cast mates a c*nt, and not in the way Erika Jayne uses the word! This show needed some fresh new blood and Kelly might exactly be what it needed, it’s said she gets into it with several of the RHOC ladies this season! Kelly was in some MAJOR hot water for a drunken racist rant a few months ago when the show was first filming. If that was any indication of what we can expect from her this season we are in for one wild ride!
