Blog Wars! Vicki Gunvalson Vs. Kelly Dodd!
Real Housewives of Orange County stars, Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd, are at odds — after Vicki and boyfriend, Steve Lodge, double-dated with Kelly’s ex, Michael Dodd, and a woman he met at Vicki’s home. Vicki didn’t spill the tea — and Kelly Dodd was seeing red, as the first conflict of Season 13 unfolded.
The ladies released their real-time thoughts via clashing Bravo blogs, rehashing the romantic debate.
Vicki begins by expressing surprise that Kelly was so upset, after discovering that her ex was back on the prowl.
“I was really shocked that Kelly was so upset about Michael dating and that she would have been upset that we went out with them a few times. Kelly made it very clear she wanted to divorce her husband Michael. She was dating immediately following the divorce and was actually very excited, describing herself as free and so happy that she was single. She is so quick to use her ”happy to be divorced” clichés. Kelly even said (as you witnessed), how she wished Michael would start dating.”
Kelly Dodd reveals just how she found out that Michael was back in the dating game.
“….I told Vicki to come by and check out my new place, and I was genuinely excited to hang out. Literally 20 minutes before she walked in the door, the story hit The Daily Mail that she had set Michael up with her friend. What weird timing! I didn’t even have time to process the texts I was getting, let alone my feelings about the situation. I was honestly expecting that Vicki would clear it all up, because you can’t always believe what you read in the tabloids. Instead, she showed zero remorse and dismissed my feelings completely. I was shocked!”
Vicki points to an organic chain of events, and hints that Kelly might not be over her ex.
“Keep in mind Steve and Michael are still close friends and see each other often. It would be logical Steve and I would see who he was dating and even spend time with them, so I am awe struck at the outrage Kelly has demonstrated towards me. Is it really outrage, or is she concealing some underlying unresolved feelings she still has for Michael?”
Kelly explains that it was Vicki’s silence that stung — but veers off topic to slam Vicki’s filmed interaction with Tamra Judge and husband, Eddie.
“The truth is, I don’t care who Michael dates. What really hurt was that Vicki did all of this without telling me, and I had to find out from the press. As you can tell, I was totally blindsided. And isn’t it amazing how Vicki goes from her virtuous performance at lunch with Tamra to another betrayal in the span of a few hours? Just a day in the life of Vicki Gunvalson.”
Vicki references the mystery woman in the center of the controversy, and clarifies that she was asked to keep the budding relationship under the radar.
“The person Michael dated for a short time is a friend of mine. Both her and Michael asked me to keep their relationship confidential. They told me that they wanted to share that information with Kelly when they thought the time was right.”
Kelly hits low, insulting a woman no longer in the picture.
“….to my surprise, I found out it was some old lady who looks like The Cat Woman. Once I knew who it was, I thought, “go for it, Michael!” If she had told me who it was, I wouldn’t have reacted in the same way. I’m sorry, but Vicki broke girl code.”
