Things are getting heated between Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd on the Real Housewives of Orange County, and it doesn’t look the drama is likely to die down soon. On the most recent episode, fans saw Dodd discuss her fight with Gunvalson with Jolie, her 12-year-old daughter, and in Gunvalson’s latest Bravo blog, she let fans know that she thought the conversation was inappropriate.
“First of all, for Kelly to be involving her 11-year-old daughter in OUR disagreement is wrong. In my opinion, Kelly should NOT be asking Jolie for any input in this matter, NOR does Jolie know the entire truth of her father’s dating life,” wrote Gunvalson.
I'm sorry y'all but Vicki is NO ONES FRIEND!! I don't care who left who, you don't hook up your friends ex husband!!! No way no how!! Vicki Gunvalson is dead wrong!!! She has absolutely no loyalty whatsoever!!! #RHOC

Gunvalson also accused Dodd of playing the victim and being a drama queen because she was upset that the OG of the OC set up her ex-husband, Michael, with another woman, and then went on double dates with them alongside her boyfriend, Steve Lodge.
Gunvalson says that she is close with Dodd, but she won’t put up with her yelling at her like she is her kid. She believes that Dodd is overreacting in an attempt to create sympathy, as well as drama. But, Gunvalson doesn’t understand Dodd’s behavior because she has been dating several men since her split, and she was the one who wanted the divorce.
How to Vicki:
1. Act terrible until you have no one left.
2. Do apology tour including: bible quotes, quiet apology voice, tears
3. Vow to never do it again in exchange for no one speaking of said terrible things.

Recently, Dodd revealed in an interview that her friendship with Gunvalson is still fractured, and Gunvalson is downplaying their friendship, claiming that she is closer to Michael because he is friends with Lodge.
Gunvalson explained in her blog post that Lodge became good friends with Michael years ago, and she and her boyfriend hang out with Michael more than they do with Kelly. She added that they hung out with Michael often during the holidays while Kelly and Jolie were out of town, and she didn’t think it was her place to tell Kelly about her ex-husband’s dating life.
She also revealed that it was Michael who wanted to meet one of Gunvalson’s close friends and asked for an introduction.

As for honoring girl code, Gunvalson says she did that, but not with Kelly. Instead, she honored her friend Teri’s request to not tell Kelly that she was dating Michael and to not get involved. Gunvalson also claims that Kelly said a number of times that she wished Michael would date and that “she was over him.” So, it never occurred to her that Kelly would get upset.
However, fans appear to be on Kelly’s side in this situation, and they don’t think Gunvalson has any understanding as to why it hurt Kelly for her to keep the double dates a secret.
The drama between Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd will continue in the new episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County that air Monday nights on Bravo.
