Kelly Dodd The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC Vicki Gunvalson

Kelly Dodd Hints About Wanting to Join the RHONY Cast Plus Acknowledges the Hypocrisy of Vicki Gunvalson’s Defamation Lawsuit

Kelly Dodd may be over the OC!

Over the weekend, the Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed that she would love nothing more than to move to NYC and join the Real Housewives of New York cast!

Kelly spent the weekend in NYC with her boyfriend Rick Leventhal and now good friend, and NY Housewife, Ramona Singer. The three, along with a bevy of others, enjoyed a fun dinner at Scarpetta NYC, as seen on Kelly’s Instagram.

“Kelly, you have to move to NY and join RHONY, you be more appreciated,” a fan commented on one of Kelly’s Instagram pictures.

The RHOC star responded, saying, “that would be a dream.”

Meanwhile, Kelly also acknowledged Vicki Gunvalson’s defamation lawsuit and the hypocrisy of it all.

As you probably already know, Vicki is suing Kelly over comments she made during an upcoming episode of RHOC.

During the cast trip to Key West, Kelly made three comments that Vicki is not happy about:

“You prey on older people.”
“You are a con woman.”
“You engaged in ‘fraud.'”

Vicki insists the claims are lies, explaining that the comments are false and could damage her career if aired.

The OG of the OC isn’t asking producers to kill the whole episode and instead wants the three sentences cut from the upcoming episode.

Now, Kelly is acknowledging Vicki’s shockingly hypocritical lawsuit.

“How is Vicki suing you for defamation when she’s the one that slandered you saying you did coke?” a fan asked Kelly.

“I know,” Kelly replied.

It’s odd to see Kelly staying so tight-lipped, but I’m sure she’s been advised to do so by her lawyers.

Kelly will most likely address the lawsuit at the RHOC season 14 reunion, which films Friday, November 8th. However, Vicki may not be at the reunion to go head to head with Kelly as Radar Online reports that “Vicki will not be allowed at the reunion if she continues her suit against Kelly.”


The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
