The Real Housewives of Orange County star and her ex-husband, Michael Dodd, have been hit with a federal tax lien for $23,386.62.
According to the IRS, the former couple did not pay taxes owed for 2015 and 2016 — they owe $14,853.73 (2015) and $8,532.89 (2016).
The IRS slapped a lien on the Corona Del Mar home Kelly Dodd lived in while filming previous seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County. The IRS is threatening to seize the property if the bill remains unpaid.
Kelly Dodd attacked Tamra for talking about her new $2 million home during the premiere episode. Tamra and her husband, Eddie Judge, purchased their new home in one of the OC’s most prestigious gated communities, Coto de Caza.
When a fan tweeted, “2,000,000 is not ‘rich’ for that area,” Kelly jumped right in and replied, “You can’t buy a tear down in Newport Beach for $2m. Coto is a nicer Temecula.” Note, “Temecula” is a city in Southern California, surrounded by hillside vineyards and several golf courses.
The comment did not sit well with Tamra, who fired back, “Do you own a house? I own 2.”
Kelly continued to shade Tamra’s finances, “Living in Coto you’re rich!! lmfao who says that?? Coto is in the sticks!” To which Tamra savagely clapped back, “I pay for my houses. I don’t date old men for money.”
Kelly and Michael Dodd divorced in 2018, after 11 years of marriage. Kelly has publicly bragged about about receiving a $1 million dollar payout from the divorce and being well off.
