As season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County unfolds we will see Kelly Dodd go through not just one but two separations.
The first separation Kelly goes through is with her now ex-husband Michael Dodd and the second is with her former BFF Vicki Gunvalson.
“It didn’t ruin our relationship but it put a big, huge ding in it,” Kelly told Page Six. “I’m not as close to her. She doesn’t invite me over to her house anymore like she used to. She’s kinda more on the Michael side and I’m great friends with Michael — like I could go over there. I think her boyfriend likes Michael more than me, so she’s always you know, she’s like, ‘okay bye. I’m more for Steve and Steve’s gonna take Michael’s side so I’m with Steve.’ I don’t know, I’m not best friends with her anymore like I used to be.”
“I’m probably closer to Shannon [Beador] and Tamra [Judge]. Like I talk to them on the daily. I talk to Gina [Kirschenheiter] and Emily [Simpson] also, but because I’ve known them longer I probably have a better relationship with them,” Kelly revealed.
Kelly adds that she and Shannon Beador became “inseparable” as they were each going through divorces.
“We just built a friendship,” Kelly explained. “We had a common ground that was divorce and we had similar things that were happening to us at the same time that we could talk about that nobody else understood. So I think that’s probably what bonded us the most.”
I’m not surprised Kelly and Vicki’s friendship isn’t what it used to be.
Thoughts on Kelly’s interview? Are you surprised Kelly is closer to Tamra and Shannon than Vicki? Did Vicki break girl code by playing matchmaker for Michael?
