Kelly Dodd is setting the record straight, about the Real Housewives of Orange County party that morphed from the groovy 70’s, to a shady screaming match. Kelly believes that Shannon Beador was behind a setup that crashed and burned, in an effort to embarrass and knock down the rookie.
Kelly admits that while Shannon had not made much of an effort to nurture their friendship, she went into the party with a positive attitude.
“At this juncture, Shannon had never really warmed up to me, seemed to resent my attempts at humor, and had been acting aloof overall. Regardless, I appreciated her invitation and the chance to bond with Shannon during what I hoped was going to be fun event.”
“Michael, Vicki and I made our entrance, said hello to Vicki and David, et al. Things were fine for literally only about five minutes. Then, it started. Shannon’s shenanigans.”
Kelly describes her first encounter with Jaci, and blasts Shannon’s cryptic attitude about their acquaintance relationship.
“I was friendly and acknowledged that the last time I saw her was when I ran into her at the Montage in Deer Valley. Her response of “Yeah, but you weren’t with him” (pointing at Michael) was crass and disrespectful to say the least. Michael knew something was amiss immediately.”
“Soon after greeting Jaci, Michael and I broke away from the group as we explored the venue. I whispered to Michael ‘What was that?’ meaning the awkwardness with Jaci, to which he whispered back, ‘Watch out, Shannon is up to no good.’”
Kelly weighs in on Shannon’s alleged intention, and her backfired strategy.
“To be clear, for Shannon to say she didn’t know that Jaci and I knew each other is complete hogwash. It was her intention, with her little staged expose featuring Jaci and Nina, to deceitfully and nefariously lay out Shannon’s version of the truth about my history with Michael, with the guy I dated whilst Michael and I were separated, and God knows what other heinous gossip she wanted to air.”
Did anyone buy Shannon’s wide-eyed denial? How does Kelly define Shannon’s end game—and how was Jaci involved in the failed plot?
“I have no idea what Shannon’s agenda was, but it blew up in her face. Quoting Jaci ‘This isn’t going like I thought it would.’ Really? What your plan with Shannon? Clearly, those two were in cohoots before I ever walked in the door. Shannon conspired with those women (notice I used a nice term here, instead of female dogs) to advance her own interests, whatever they were or are.”
Kelly offers to tell Shannon anything she wants to know about her—-but what fun would that be, for a housewife grasping for a juicy storyline…ANY storyline?
“Listen Shannon, if you wanted to know anything and everything about me, you could easily just stopped by, or given me a call, and I would gladly, truthfully, tell you whatever you’d like to know. I am an open book.”
Kelly briefly addresses Nasty Nina, and how she played into the shady spectacle.
“…she squandered her 15 seconds of fame by demonstrating just how people “with the same lifestyle [as Shannon]” are classless liars with whorish mouths. When Nina said “I don’t have to suck dicks to pay my bills”, I think she was projecting herself.”
“Note to Shannon… You’re known by the company you keep. Great job defending Nina. You claimed I provoked her, so she pushed back? How? By trying to find Vicki’s purse that she hid for some reason? Seriously?”
Kelly explains and defends the cutting insults that she hurled at Shannon.
“Yes, I called Shannon “f***ing ugly.” At the time, all I saw in her was her nasty aura. Karma is a bitch and so is Shannon. Yes, I called her “f***ing dumb,” because it was beyond stupid for her think she could get away with it. I called her out for conspiring with those bitches to set me up.”
Kelly slams it out of the park, when she points out Shannon’s judgmental hypocrisy—blasting her for denying the setup.
“She lied and denied it. How ironic that this prevaricator stood as judge and jury over Vicki for supposedly lying?”
Kelly touches on her “Mrs. Roper” taunt, and reveals what her husband really thought of Shannon’s costume.
“Shannon ending up spinning it as though she planned on being Mrs. Roper the whole time. Yeah, right. If so, then why didn’t she just own it from the start instead of considering my moniker an insult. “I didn’t insult you at your party” she said. Which one was it? Lying and spinning, again and again. Actually, me calling her Mrs. Roper was being kind. Michael thought she looked like a demonic gypsy.”
Kelly stands firm in her support of Vicki, in the wake of her friend being verbally throttled by David Beador.
“Vicki’s my girlfriend and I couldn’t just stand by and watch her be attacked by a bully. To Vicki’s credit she stood up to him and represented all women oppressed by men. So proud of her.”
Viewers will watch Shannon and Kelly try to recover, after the crashed setup and Kelly’s mouthy meltdown. Do you think that this pair has a shot?
