Kelly Dodd was brand new to The Real Housewives of Orange County this season,and Dodd was excited about filming the reality show. She admitted to Andy Cohen that she had indeed watched all of the episodes prior to joining the show, so she knew how the group was divided before joining The Real Housewives of Orange County. And unlike Meghan King Edmonds, who didn’t take sides, Kelly decided to side with Vicki Gunvalson as she felt that Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Heather Dubrow were all bullies throughout the season.
According to a new tweet, Kelly Dodd is now being praised for standing up to the ladies on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Many people felt that Tamra, Shannon, and Heather had been labeled the mean girls of the show, and people wanted someone on the show who could shake up the cast. And Kelly managed to do just that, even though she used foul language and violence to make it happen on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Even though her approach might have been wrong, people love what Dodd ended up doing to the cast.

“I’m glad Kelly is the on #RHOC! She brought a jolt it needed and kept it real with all of them. They’re mad because she’s not fake like them,” one person wrote on Twitter, while another added in agreement, “If it wasn’t for her, this would’ve been a BORING repeat of season 10… Everyone vs Vicki.”

Between the ladies, there are some things that are off limits. Tamra doesn’t want the ladies talking about her daughter, Sidney, and Heather has previously revealed that she doesn’t want people judging her husband’s decision to choose work over his family. But Kelly Dodd didn’t follow the rules, and she had no problems bringing up Tamra’s daughter during a trip to Ireland. While she apologized at the moment, she later stood by her comments throughout the season, and fans loved her honesty.
“I love Kelly. She called everyone out on [their] sh*t and they couldn’t handle it,” another person pointed out about Kelly’s decision to be honest, which was a shock to many viewers and even the ladies on the show.

“I have learned that these mean, cliquey women have at least one thing in common; they all have no reservations about confronting people. They like to get in your face and assert their self-perceived dominance. Just because you have the balls to confront somebody doesn’t mean your should. Especially since Vicki, Meghan and I will not cower to bullies,” Kelly Dodd explained, according to Bravo.
