Kelly Dodd was almost a one season wonder and reveals she almost didn’t return to the Real Housewives of Orange County.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Kelly admits that she almost didn’t return to RHOC because of former co-star Heather Dubrow.
“I was, like, not going to do it,” she admits. “Just because, you know, I thought Heather was going to be there and she’s kind of a snob.”
However, when Heather decided not to return for season 12 Kelly reconsidered leaving.
“Once I found out she wasn’t coming back then I was like, ‘Okay, I’m doing it.’”
Kelly says she returned to filming with a new mindset and was determined to leave behind her past behavior of “screaming and going crazy.”
“Looking at the way my behavior was, you know — I don’t think anyone understood why I was like that,” Kelly says of her first season as a Housewife, adding that viewers opinions took a toll on her. “It was terrifying because every little thing that you say, people nit pick at it. It’s just the strangest phenomenon.”
Overall Kelly says season 12 “was a funny season. It was more lighthearted this season, not as dark as last year … I mean, I really had a great time this season. I think everybody did.”
However, that doesn’t mean the season was drama free.
“I kind of get into it really bad with the new girl [Peggy Sulahian] …. You have to watch! Claws are coming back out.”
From what I’ve seen so far I don’t think Kelly has left her “crazy, screaming” behavior behind her but time may prove me wrong.
Thoughts on Kelly’s interview? Do you think Kelly has left her crazy ways behind her? Are you surprised Kelly almost didn’t return because of Heather? Would have rather seen Kelly stay or go? Do you miss Heather?
