Kelly Dodd Puts Ex-Husband Michael Dodd on Blast; Reveals She’s Going After Full Custody of Daughter

Kelly Dodd has put her ex-husband Michael Dodd on blast by revealing his explicit text messages on social media.

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum is at war with her ex-husband and reveals that she is seeking full custody of their 16-year-old daughter, Jolie Dodd.

A source tells Radar Online that Kelly is over Michael’s “disparaging” text messages, so she’s finally taking action against him.

“She’s been quiet for years for her daughter,” one insider spilled.

Friends claim that Michael and his girlfriend, Laura White, have been “coming after” Kelly for some time by bombarding her with “harassing” texts.

“Every time they talk, there’s name-calling,” another insider revealed. “She’s tired of the dysfunction.” Sources also claim that Michael is also “bullying” Kelly’s husband, Rick Leventhal.

In text messages released by Kelly on Instagram, Michael calls her a “f—— stupid b—-,” a “f—— stupid piece of s—-,” and a “w—-.”

“She’s worried about her daughter,” an insider revealed, noting that Kelly is seeking full custody of Jolie.

After this came to light, Kelly fired back at the hate she received for publicly going after Michael.

In a now-deleted video, Kelly, and her husband, Rick Leventhal, defended bashing Michael, saying no one has any idea about the “abuse” Kelly has endured.

“Everyone wants to know why I’m posting this about Michael; I’m sick of this s–t. He’s abused me, and I’ve never said anything for years,” Kelly said in a video. “Everyone knows.” 

“And Rick, can you tell them?” she added.

Rick entered the video, saying, “I’m a gentleman. I get along with everyone. I never even had a chance to get along with this guy [because] he came at me from day one.” Kelly chimed in, revealing that Michael made fun of Rick’s large nose.

“I get it. I have a big [nose], but I never met you [and] I’m more than my nose,” Rick continued. “And guess what? I’ve taken great care of your daughter, bro. Great care from day one. I’m looking out for her. I’m not asking for anything but respect and maybe civility. But that doesn’t exist with this guy.” 

Kelly added: “On the show, I was on, I never said a word because I had class. Now, I’m tired of it.” 

RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
