The Real Housewives of Orange County is about to welcome a new lady into the fold.

Enstarz is reporting that Kelly Meza-Dodd will join the show for its upcoming season. Considering all the controversy Meza-Dodd has accumulated so far, fans are definitely in for another drama-filled season. With that in mind, here’s everything we know about Bravo’s newest Housewife.

For starters, Meza-Dodd is Meghan King Edmond’s good friend. The strength of their relationship isn’t known, though Meza-Dodd has made some inroads with former Housewife Lizzie Rovsek and current cast member Heather Dubrow over the past few weeks.

When she’s not in front of the camera, Meza-Dodd works as the COO of a company called Kiss Me Mirrors. According to Radar Online, Meza-Dodd brings home well over a million dollars a year.

At the same time, Meza-Dodd’s current husband, Michael, was once the head of LeapFrog Enterprises Inc.

Meza-Dodd and her husband have one kid together.

Although Meza-Dodd hasn’t appeared on RHOC yet, she stirred up some controversy during a half-drunken interview with TMZ. As fans may recall, the outlet caught up with her outside a club in Hollywood, where she expressed some racist sentiments.

“I don’t like black guys,” Meza-Dodd shared. “I don’t even know any black guys.”

She even went so far as to dish on her husband, referring to herself as “married but available.”

Fortunately, Meza-Dodd issued a formal apology for her comments shortly after the scandalous video surfaced.

“I am truly embarrassed,” she said. “There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone. That video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly.”

Of course, her fellow Real Housewives of Orange County cast members didn’t react kindly to Meza-Dodd’s racist ideas.
