RHOC's Kelly Dodd SLAMS Braunwyn Windham-Burke as a 'f**king nut job,' 'narcissist' & 'horrible mother' after firings
REAL Housewives of Orange County alum Kelly Dodd slammed Braunwyn Windham-Burke as a "f**king nut job," "narcissist" and a "horrible mother" after they were fired from the show.
Elizabeth Vargas was also ousted while Heather Dubrow was brought back after quitting the show in 2017.
Despite claiming she was ready for the new things life would bring after being fired from the Bravo series, Kelly ripped into Braunwyn after the mom of seven reached out to her over text messages.
As Braunwyn claimed she was there for her fellow co-star despite "going through hell" together, Kelly took the opportunity to tell her how she really felt.
"This is your fault, we'd still be in the show if you didn't make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political 'woke' BS. Your lies about me, calling me a racist and a homophobe were horribly destructive and your phony storylines didn't help either," the mom of one told her.
Braunwyn clapped back by saying: "Well, I'm still sober and still gay, like I said, if you ever want to talk, I'm here."
As she shared the text message exchange between them, Kelly wrote: " I can’t believe this Braunwyn has the audacity to text me !!
"She went on a podcast .. She said she was fired from the show because we all didn’t like her because she’s gay.
"Not because she’s a horrible person. Not because she treated everyone like s**t and made no effort to be friends with us. Not because she went on a press tour and made horrible accusations about us calling all of us homophobes and racist, Not because she’s a terrible mother.
"Not because she’s a horrible person to her husband. The only reason she was fired is because she is gay. What a f**king nut job classic narcissist!"
The two housewives had a very rocky relationship during their last season together as they battled it out over political views, Black Lives Matter, and their parenting skills.
Braunwyn hinted that Kelly didn't care about Black Lives Matter in a Us Weekly podcast episode.
She told the hosts when asked what she thought about Kelly's Drunk Wives Matter and comments about Covid-19: "We are not speaking.
"We are diametrically opposed in our ideology right now. I believe Black Lives Matter, and she believes Drunk Wives Matter.
"And that’s something that I don’t find funny. I have forgiven her a lot for her big mouth over the years."
Following the interview, Kelly slammed Braunwyn for traveling without her kids.
She said: "This is so wrong… hypocrisy at its highest level. I never abandoned my daughter during Covid.
"She was with her grandmother and father when I was stuck in NYC."
The mother of one continued: "Braunwyn on the other hand travelled to Puerto Rico, Aspen, Salt Lake City and elsewhere without her kids who spent and continue to spend considerable time with nannies, not their mom.
"I have one child (teenager). She has 7 including 4 aged 2-6."
The Bravo star concluded: "There's so much more I can't wait to say at the reunion so stay tuned. Poor Braunwyn will be eaten alive."
Things escalated to the point where Kelly then claimed Braunwyn did not pay her taxes and went as far as broadcasting the mom of seven's license plate.
Kelly also slammed Braunwyn's sobriety, claiming it was a fake storyline and even said that she had been involuntarily hospitalized.
Following their feud both on and off the show, Kelly threatened to "eat Braunwyn alive during the reunion show."
Sadly, the RHOC stars were fired from the show as they did not have their contracts renewed for season 16.
A Bravo spokesperson confirmed the departure of Kelly, Braunwyn and Elizabeth to Variety on Tuesday.
Current stars Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson will return for the upcoming season.
The leftover housewives will be joined by Braunwyn's best friend, Noella Bergener, as The Sun exclusively revealed on Wednesday.
"Noella is coming on board as a cast member for the new season, though Braunwyn will not be returning," the source told us.
"They tested her out before the firing decisions were made. She has good chemistry with other potential new cast members."
Noella first made an appearance on the show as a friend of Braunwyn's during season 15.
