Share This:

It’s filming season for The Real Housewives of Orange County — and two ROCK solid sources close to the action inform AllAboutTheTea.com that a fan favorite has crossed over to the dark side.

Kelly Dodd has made up with Tamra Judge,” reports our exclusive source. “She has checked out, and really only cares about collecting a paycheck.”

Kelly Dodd enjoyed an epic rookie season, energizing a tired dynamic with honest commentary and deliciously messy deliveries. Andy Cohen dubbed the rookie “polarizing” — the ultimate compliment for any Housewife. Viewers had varying opinions on the newbie, but Kelly’s stinging retaliations against Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow had social media fans cheering her into her sophomore season. Kelly and Vicki Gunvalson hit a few bumps, but came out of Season 11 as loyal friends.

Why the switch? Our source alleges that Kelly is nervous about being on Tamra’s bad side — and is looking for an easy ride through Season 12. 

“Kelly is scared of Tamra,” reveals one insider. “She doesn’t want a repeat of last season, and just wants to cruise through without making waves.”

Tamra is undoubtedly hard-up for an ally, after Heather Dubrow’s exit. The Cut Fitness owner is reportedly in for a brutal season — and another source explains to AllAboutTheTea.com that she recruited Kelly to Team Trashy prior to filming.

Tamra knows that she’s about to be smacked with her past, and needs Kelly to be in her corner,” dishes the source. “Kelly has fallen for Tamra’s fakery — the same garbage she fed Gretchen [Rossi] back in the day.”

Another source adds that hurting Vicki is also allegedly on Tamra’s wish list.

Tamra reached out to Kelly before filming even began…and knows that winning Kelly over will hurt Vicki,” the insider claims.

Will Kelly shrink into the background — and become nothing more than a Tamra minion? Will Season 12 be a bust for the breakout star of Season 11?  Let us know what you think!

The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming and AllAboutTheTea.com has access to the action so stay tuned.
