What did the ‘Shahs of Sunset’ star say about Kelly Dodd?

Shahs of Sunset is one of the most popular shows on the Bravo network, the same one that airs RHOC. All the Bravo celebrities know each other as it has become a small community. After the official Instagram account for the cable channel confirmed Heather Dubrow’s return as a housewife, GG had a reaction to the news.

“Yessss!!! Love Heather! Soooo glad KD is gone. Sorry not sorry,” GG replied on the post sharing her excitement.

Fans started replying and agreeing with GG’s take on Dodd with one in particular that caught the reality star’s attention.

“I’m happy about Heather,” the fan replied to GG. “The show has lost its class. She’s the one to bring it back. KD was doing the most… she behaved for a few seasons but last season was too much. I’m not here for her ignorance.”

GG then replied to the fan by adding, “I agree. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my fair share of f*ck ups, but there needs to be growth and some change towards a better good. I don’t like insecure bullies who thrive off of belittling others. Out with the a** and in with the class!”

After GG’s comment was reported by several media outlets, word got back to Dodd who reacted to being called an “insecure bully.” Page Six reached out to the former RHOC star for comment and she said that she didn’t know the Shahs of Sunset star.

“I don’t know who this woman is. I don’t watch that show,” Dodd told the outlet.

The entrepreneur acknowledged that “there are a lot of haters in the world,” but she claims to be getting “far more love than hate.”

“I choose to focus on the thousands and thousands of well-wishes and messages of support I’ve already received today,” Dodd added.

Dodd joined RHOC in season 11 and made it through five seasons. Although she was a fan favorite at the beginning, her fame likability declined following opinions about COVID-19, and masks that caused a heavy backlash. With the cast shakeup, Dodd was one of the stars that weren’t offered a contract for season 16.

“The last five years have been an amazing experience,” she tweeted acknowledging her exit. “The next five years will be even better. I am so grateful for all the love and support and so excited about the future.”

Other co-stars that wouldn’t be returning were Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. RHOC Season 16 is expected to start filming this summer with an air date to be determined on Bravo.
