Braunwyn Windham-Burke Fires Back and Denies Kelly Dodd’s Claim She Was In A 5150 Psychiatric Hold

Firing back!

Braunwyn Windham-Burke is denying Kelly Dodd‘s recent claims that she was placed in a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Earlier this week, Kelly went on a Twitter tirade and made some quite over the top claims about her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star.

“I am not going to be blamed for her mental disorders, alcoholism, cheating, violence, & her children being depressed. She’s been in a 5150 hold,” Kelly claimed in a now-deleted tweet.

“Haven’t they learned anything from Taylor Armstrong’s late husband? Clean up your own house. Get help. Stop blaming others,” Kelly also tweeted then deleted, referencing the former RHOBH star’s abusive ex-husband Russell Armstrong, who killed himself.

“Good morning. So once again, I’m waking up, reading some stuff, and honestly, there’s certain people I work with that I’m shocked how much they get away with. How many lies they’re allowed to tell — how it seems like nothing really happens,” Braunwyn said in a video on her Instagram Story.

“I just want to clear something up. I’ve never been on a 5150 hold,” she continued. “That’s a lie. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. You know, when I needed help 10 years ago, I checked myself in. So that’s a different situation. But, 5150 holds are good for people who need them. There’s no shame in that. There’s no shame in mental health issues.”

Meanwhile, Kelly didn’t stop there; she then fired back and further defended her now-deleted tweets after receiving heat from fans.

One fan pointed out that Braunwyn’s husband, Sean Burke, “never blamed” the cast for his wife’s drinking issues.

“Perhaps, but she shouldn’t be on this so-called show that’s toxic (for her ).. not one person on this cast likes her, and she doesn’t like anyone,” Kelly replied.

Another fan questioned why Kelly would “kick a friend” when she’s down, to which Kelly responded, “Sorry, I don’t condone liars, and cheaters and violence and crazy!”

A third fan said Kelly was “evil” for exploiting and shaming Braunwyn’s mental health.

“She’s calling me a liar !! Do you understand!!!!!! She’s the liar,” Kelly fired back.

Kelly then once again insisted that Braunwyn’s sobriety storyline is “contrived.”

This latest tweet-storm comes a week after Kelly appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and insisted that Braunwyn’s battle with alcoholism was fake.

“I think her whole sobriety thing is contrived and fake,” Kelly revealed. “I don’t think she had seven kids, so she could not drink. I know her well enough that this was a pre-plotted thing that she wanted to do to get her own show. The truth. Her talent agent told her to stop drinking – it’s all contrived. I don’t believe that she’s a real alcoholic. You’ll see later on at the end of the show what happens.”

As for Braunwyn, she initially responded to Kelly’s claims on Instagram, calling them “low.” She also said that Kelly was “pretty vile and cruel, so it’s not unexpected.”

She clapped back, even more, a few days later on Twitter, saying, “If I was going to do something just for “storyline,” I would of picked something easier, being sober in this toxic environment ain’t easy….to have someone diminish the struggle is low, I’ve been blessed to have support and have been working a program if you need help it works.” 

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
