Kelly Dodd was clearly concerned for her friend, Vicki Gunvalson, on Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki had been complaining about heart palpitations, and she was worried about having a heart attack. Kelly, who is close to Vicki, believed that her friend was having an anxiety attack. While Vicki never debunked Kelly’s claims about an anxiety attack, she did go to the hospital to get checked out. She was let go from the hospital within hours again, and Dodd was happy to see that her friend was alright. But she was not alright with Peggy Sulahian’s comments about how she needed to step back.
During the episode, Peggy was personalizing the entire experience. She constantly wanted to care for Vicki, and in her efforts, she managed to push Kelly away from the room. She was also asking Kelly to essentially stay out of the way when she was trying to help. According to a new Bravo report, Kelly Dodd felt that she was pushed over the edge, and Dodd struck back by mocking Peggy’s role in her marriage. It’s no secret that Kelly is leaving her husband, Michael, but she also points out that she isn’t subservient in her marriage.
“I have a “hot” button, and that button gets pushed when somebody tries to tell me what to do. That is what Peggy does to me over, and over, and over again. I finally lost my patience with her,” Kelly Dodd explained about Peggy in her Bravo blog, adding, “I just love how Peggy said that she respects her husband and that I should take notes from her. I am glad that she is in a great relationship. I guess shutting up and being subservient is the recipe for a solid marriage!”
During the episode, Dodd learned that Peggy had called her husband because she was confused. She didn’t want to sit back and let Vicki go to the hospital by herself, but she didn’t want to push herself into the situation if Vicki wanted privacy. Her husband, Diko, knew that Sulahian was reminded of her own father’s death, so he encouraged her to go. By the time Peggy arrived at the hospital, Vicki was already on her way back to the hotel to relax. However, Peggy might have felt better about the situation. As for Kelly Dodd, she’s mocking Peggy over her decision to follow her husband’s advice, even though he was just giving her advice. Perhaps this is a feud that isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.
What do you think about Kelly Dodd’s comments about Peggy’s marriage? Do you think she’s subservient in her marriage to Diko, simply because she took some advice from him to make her feel better?
