It seems Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd finally wrote a check her you know what couldn’t cash this week!

During her Monday night appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the topic turned to the RHOD storyline in which Brandi Redmond accused Cary Deuber of saying her plastic surgeon had killed people on the operating table… something Cary has denied.

Kelly then claimed her costar Vicki Gunvalson had said the same thing about Terry Dubrow, plastic surgeon and star of Botched. Whoa! 

Andy Cohen asked, “Kelly if someone told you that your boob doctor killed his previous patient on his surgery table right before you were going in for your surgery, what would you do in that situation?”

Kelly responded, “That’s what Vicki said about Terry Dubrow so I was like… Yeah I swear. I promise. That’s why Heather got mad.”

Even Andy appeared stunned and taken aback by Kelly’s statement. Kelly then doubled down on it and claimed it happened during the bus trip from hell last season when the ladies, including Terry’s wife Heather Dubrow, got into a screaming match over certain secrets Vicki had told Kelly about the other ladies’ marriages.

There was only one problem however.  See Bravo never aired that clip as it was apparently left on the cutting room floor and rightfully so as making those claims about any Doctor, especially a plastic surgeon, could affect their livelihood.

So today Kelly is retracting and apologizing for her comments, and Vicki is also denying ever making them. Me thinks the Dubrows might have sent out one or two cease and desist letters threatening to sue!

Kelly took to her Twitter yesterday to take back her potentially defamatory statements.

She wrote, “@vgunvalson never said Terry Dubrow kills his patients . I miss heard the question and I miss spoke. I was flustered ?.”  She later added, “@drdubrow is a renowned surgeon and I know him to have a reputation of the highest regard.  I regret any misunderstanding about this.”

Vicki also chimed in and made it clear she doesn’t want to get sued said no such thing!

Vicki tweeted, “I never said that!!” when a fan tweeted about Kelly’s comments on WWHL. A screenshot of that is below.

The Dubrows seem to be taking the high road and have yet to comment on the entire drama.
