Kelly Dodd The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Kelly Dodd Publicly Slams Ex-Husband Michael Dodd Yet Again; Denies RHOC Season 15 Ratings Are Down Because Fans Are Boycotting Due to Her Controversial Comments

Oops, she did it again!

Kelly Dodd is once again publicly slamming her ex-husband Michael Dodd on social media.

On Sunday, the Real Housewives of Orange County star shared a text message between her and Michael on Instagram. In the text, Kelly asks Michael if he can pick their daughter Jolie up from her tennis match and then take her to dinner.

“Hey, Jolie has her last match at the club, and I have a party. Can you pick her up from tennis at 3:00?” Kelly asks before adding, “Perhaps take her to dinner.” 

Michael replies, “I can’t today. I’m busy.” 

This didn’t sit well with Kelly, who then blasted Michael on Instagram.

“What kind of father doesn’t want to spend time with his daughter? Hasn’t been with her in 6 mo. Thank God for @rickleventhal,” Kelly wrote.

This is the second time in recent weeks that Kelly has slammed Michael’s parenting on social media.

In October, Kelly called Michael a “deadbeat” dad in front of their daughter Jolie.

Meanwhile, Kelly clapped back at a recent report claiming that RHOC ratings are down due to fans boycotting the season because of her recent controversial comments.

Since March, Kelly has found herself in hot water for her various comments about COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement.

“This is for Showbiz Cheatsheet that wrote some stupid article that is not fact-based; it’s all speculation and completely absurd,” Kelly began. “They are saying that our ratings are down slightly due to my antics and that people are boycotting, what fanboys? Just to let you know, there is election night. Fox News, Tucker Carlson, gets 4-5 million viewers a night. News is where people are watching.”

While Kelly admits that RHOC’s ratings are down “slightly,” she blames the rating slump on other factors that have nothing to do with her antics.

“We are at a different time; we usually air in the summertime. Compare Potomac, Southern Charm, Salt Lake City; why are those numbers way down compared to ours? It has nothing to do with me.” Kelly continued.

Adding, “Our ratings bumped up last week so try again.” 

She went on to deny that she’s a Republican or that she voted for Trump. Instead, the RHOC star insisted she is a registered Independent and a Libertarian.

To wrap, Kelly said she would not allow the liberal media to try and cancel her for sharing her opinion.

“You obviously are the liberal cancel culture, Showbiz Cheatsheet, that you’re not allowed to have an opinion. Obviously, I don’t have your opinion, so you’re writing bullshit articles about me. This is America, in case you didn’t know,  and I’m allowed to have my opinion. And if it doesn’t fit your narrative, then you’re going to try and cancel me. That’s not how it works in America, “ Kelly concluded.

Season 15 of RHOC airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c.
