A few days after a major Twitter smackdown involving Kelly Dodd, Lizzie Rovsek and Gretchen Rossi versus Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd celebrated a drama free birthday.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star celebrated her 43rd birthday on September 26 with an all-girls luncheon.
Kelly‘s best friend, Rebecca, honored her bestie by throwing her a surprise birthday luncheon in Corona del Mar.
Kelly first informed us of her epic surprise via Instagram. “I was surprised by this unexpected birthday party!! I love my friends!!!,” she wrote on September 26, along with the above photo. And the gorgeous reality diva was excited to celebrate with her “birthday girls,” as she wrote in the following IG post featuring herself along with Gretchen, Lizzie and Vicki Gunvalson.
The birthday luncheon was held at the Farmhouse restaurant at Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach. According to a source, Kelly, is not really into birthdays but was totally surprised and wowed by the shing ding.
The party was planned by Kelly’s best friend, Rebecca, and we’re told unlike the Bravo reality series Kelly stars in, this event was drama free!
The attendees were all of Kelly‘s “real” friends and the biggest and likely the best surprise of the event was Kelly‘s daughter, Jolie, bringing out her mom’s birthday cake, a source told AllAboutTheTea.Com.
The source added, Kelly‘s husband Michael, picked up Jolie from school to make her mom’s birthday extra special. Surprisingly, Michael planted a big kiss on his wife at her birthday celebration — despite any turbulence seen on the RHOC in their marriage, things seem to be going well for the couple today.
In a recent interview, Kelly described how much the couple have grown from their past experience, “We’ve both gotten older, wiser, a little bit more patient with each other. He realized it’s cheaper to keep her and I realize, you know, if you’re with one asshole, you might as well be with your asshole husband with a kid.”
