The blame game has begun!
We all saw this coming…didn’t we? Kelly Dodd is now playing the blame game after being fired from the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Bravo did not ask Kelly back for season 16 of RHOC after five seasons on the show. The network also let go of Kelly’s fellow OC Housewives Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.
On Thursday, Kelly shared a series of explosive text messages on Instagram.
“I hope you’re okay, I know we’ve been through hell and back, but I’m here,” Brawnwyn wrote to Kelly, who replied, “This was your fault.”
She continued, “We’d still be on the show if you didn’t make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political ‘woke’ BS.’”
“Your lies about me, calling me a racist and a homophobe, were horribly destructive, and your phony storylines didn’t help either,” she added.
“Well, I’m still sober and still gay; like I said, if you ever want to talk, I’m here,” Braunwyn replied to Kelly, according to the screenshots.
However, Kelly didn’t stop there. She also ripped into Brauwnyn in the caption of her Instagram post.
Kelly said she couldn’t believe Braunwyn had the “audacity” to text her.
“She said she was fired from the show because we all didn’t like her because she’s gay,” Kelly wrote. “Not because she’s a horrible person. Not because she treated everyone like s–t and made no effort to be friends with us.”
She continued: “Not because she went on a press tour and made horrible accusations about us calling all of us homophobes and racist, Not because she’s a terrible mother. Not because she’s a horrible person to her husband. The only reason she was fired is because she is gay. What a f–king nut job, classic narcissist!”
A source tells Page Six that Kelly is responsible for her own exit from RHOC.
“Kelly should take accountability for herself being fired instead of pointing fingers at everyone else,” the insider claimed.
Meanwhile, Kelly told Page Six that Braunwyn “single-handedly” ruined the Orange County Housewives franchise.
“All she cares about is herself and being famous, and she single-handedly ruined last season,” Kelly said in a statement. “Ask any one of my castmates. They will tell you the same thing. No one wanted to film with her or be near her, let alone be friends with her.”
“Braunwyn is a hypocrite and a liar,” Kelly added. “She came after me and my castmates in the worst possible way. She made false, defamatory, and horrible allegations against me … and when asked about my marriage to Rick [Leventhal] on ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ she gave a nasty, negative response.”
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
