‘RHOC’: Braunwyn Windham-Burke Calls Kelly Dodd ‘Vile and Cruel’
Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd continue to be at odds on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Although the two Bravo stars were seemingly on a path to friendship, things have broken. The cast has hinted that something happens during season 15 that turns them off Windham-Burke to the point they’ve unfollowed her from social media. Dodd recently made a claim about Windham-Burke that has the latter clapping back.
What did Kelly Dodd say about Braunwyn Windham-Burke?
Dodd is known to be straight-forward and doesn’t mince words when they make her angry. Following a feud with Windham-Burke, Dodd made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. On the late-night show, Andy Cohen played the “Do you regret?” game with Dodd when the topic of Windham-Burke came up. The host asked Dodd if she regretted her “lack of sensitivity” toward her co-star’s struggle with sobriety.
“I think her whole sobriety thing is contrived and I think it’s fake,” Dodd answered. “I know her well enough that this was a pre-plotted thing that she wanted to do to get her own show. She already had this planned, she wanted to get her own show. Her talent agent told her to stop drinking… it’s all contrived. I don’t believe she is a real alcoholic.”
Cohen was taken aback by Dodd’s claims as he didn’t see it coming. The Positive Beverage promoter advised RHOC fans to keep watching the show to see why they had a fallout with Windham-Burke.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke claps back
As Windham-Burke portrays her path to sobriety on RHOC Season 15, fans have really responded to her storyline. Viewers like it when the housewives open up about their challenges in life. Following Dodd’s appearance on WWHL, a fan asked Windham-Burke what she thought of her co-star saying she was faking it.
“I’ve learned through others that when people have a hard time with me being sober, it’s more about their own issue,” Windham-Burke replied to the fan on Instagram. “Were people in my life telling me to ‘clean up my act?” Hell ya, I was black[ed] out drinking most days. Did I get sober for the show? Maybe. I knew we were filming soon and I was scared to have what happened the year before.”
Windham-Burke confessed that she doesn’t recall a lot of stuff that happened during her first year on the reality series.
“Is there a doubt in anyone’s mind, who knows me, I’m an alcoholic? No. It’s low, but she’s pretty vile and cruel, so it’s not unexpected,” Windham-Burke added.
When Dodd saw this social media response she took a screenshot and shared it on Twitter calling her a liar.
“More lies!!! The truth is coming,” Dodd tweeted. “You are Tamra [Judge] 2.0 with your manufactured storylines. You’ll be exposed soon. Vile and cruel? Look at your ET interviews.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
