Kelly Dodd insulted her ex-husband, Michael Dodd, to their daughter Jolie, calling him a “deadbeat” in an Instagram video.
Kelly Dodd, 45, was shown talking to her 14-year-old daughter, Jolie and one of her friends in the now-deleted video posted on her Instagram Story.
“Jolie, aren’t you glad you have a real dad like Rick Leventhal instead of your father, Michael, who you haven’t seen in — how long did you see your dad?”
“Like five months,” Jolie replied as she held her hand up to her face while sitting at a desk.
“Yeah, Jolie’s dad is nonexistent, deadbeat Michael Dodd,” Kelly added.
“Holy s—t, what kinda person does this to their child?” one fan commented on a tweet of the video.
“Parents like this are sad,” another wrote. “Hurts the kids!!!!!”
“You can see her daughter so clearly embarrassed,” another noted.

“Kelly regularly beat up Michael during their marriage — and once even gave him a black eye, ” the family insider told AllAboutTheTea.com.
According to the source, the beatings were routine and shared details of one disturbing incident where the Real Housewives of Orange County star came home drunk and attacked.
“Michael was laying on the couch one night when she [Kelly Dodd] came home from the bar, and they got in a fight and she clawed his face and punched him in the eye.” The ROCK solid source revealed to AllAboutTheTEA.com.
“His [Michael Dodd] face was so badly beaten that he couldn’t leave the house for over a week.” The source continued. “He was tortured in that marriage.”
In July 2014, Kelly Dodd was hit with a restraining order after she was charged with domestic violence against Michael. The order was terminated the following year and the case was dismissed after she attended 10 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and six months of therapy.
