Kelly Dodd vs. Vicki Gunvalson — RHOC
Vicki and Kelly became fast friends after the latter joined the series for season 11, but their relationship became strained during season 13 after Kelly accused Vicki and Vicki’s boyfriend, Steve Lodge, of playing matchmaker for her ex-husband, Michael Dodd. While Vicki attempted to downplay her role in Michael’s love life, she did reveal she and Steve went on double dates with Kelly’s ex and his new girlfriend. During the season 13 reunion, Kelly stormed off stage after Vicki suggested Kelly did cocaine.
Where They Stand Today: While Kelly and Vicki made up during the season 13 reunion, Kelly backtracked after Us Weekly’s exclusive trailer for the special aired and claimed she would leave RHOC if Vicki was a part of the show because of the drug comments. “If they don’t do something to Vicki how could I go back … I’m not going to sell my soul for this ratchet liar!” Kelly replied to a fan in November 2018 via Instagram. “They [are] running that show to the ground and hurting people’s reputation and my brand !!” The following month, Vicki clapped back in a since-deleted tweet, claiming that Kelly would remain on the show because has “no job or career.” In response, Kelly called Vicki “jealous.”
Kelly celebrated when Vicki was demoted to “friend” for season 14 and jumped for joy when she left for good ahead of season 15.Back to top
