When Noella Bergner came on the scene during season 16 of the Real Housewives of Orange County you either loved her or hated her – there was no in-between.
It turns out RHOC alum Kelly Dodd fell into the “hate” category. During an appearance on Jeff Lewis’ SiriusXM radio show, the former Bravoleb slammed the latest addition to the RHOC cast.
According to Kelly, Noella is “fake” and is just like former RHOC star “Braunwyn [Windham-Burke].”
Kelly also revealed that Noella constantly calls her for advice about the show, adding that Noelle is “gorgeous” but “annoying.”
She explains: “[Noella] just like Braunwyn. I mean [she] calls me all the time, tries to get advice. She’s a nice person. I just think she’s just fake, and it makes me upset because I want people to like her.”
The former RHOC star says there are no genuine friendships within the current cast.
“There isn’t real friendships there. It’s all forced, and you see it,” Kelly noted.
Meanwhile, it turns out Kelly isn’t the only one who isn’t a fan of Noella.
Tamra Judge called Noella the “village idiot” while Brandi Glanville dubbed the newbie “phony.”
Brandi explained, “I just feel like it’s just too much, too soon, honestly. I think she’s beautiful and everything, but we just started the season, [and] she’s already breaking down in a restaurant and refusing to get out of the restaurant and making a scene. I’m like it just seems phony. Too soon!”
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in late 2022 or early 2023.
