The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd‘s ongoing feud is reaching a new low today after Vicki took to Twitter to state her co-star will be returning to Bravo for season 14 because she has “no job or career.”
After sharing an article that suggested Bravo was standing by Vicki and convincing Kelly to return to the show after she threatened to quit, Vicki told fans she wasn’t surprised to hear about Kelly’s supposed return.
“Of course, she now is changing her mind. She has NO job or career,” Vicki wrote to her online audience.
After seeing her co-star’s message, which appears to have been deleted from Twitter, Kelly shared a response on Instagram on December 11, slamming Vicki for being hateful and suggesting she is jealous. She also threw shade at Vicki’s educational background, reminding her that she went to college unlike Vicki.
“This makes me very sad.. I am college educated you are not. I worked in advertising after I graduated from college for 10 yrs. Bought real estate myself.. Married a smart successful man with whom, I had a child with which is a great father to his daughter. Where is your kids father??” Kelly asked.
“I invested in stocks and real estate and start-ups very early therefore, I don’t have to work as an insurance broker selling insurance for minimal margins (your words). You also told me you make more money on the show than you do selling insurance. I have made better choices in my life than you .. I’m sorry if you’re jealous, I just work smarter,” she continued. “I hope you find happiness, peace and love Vicki #dontbejelly #donthate.”
And despite Vicki’s comment, it doesn’t appear Kelly has decided to return to the RHOC just yet.
After a fan commented under her post, telling her – “If you’re smarter and so successful, then you don’t need the show and should be able to move on from it without a problem,” Kelly responded: “It’s not a problem.”
Last month, after Vicki accused her of being a cocaine user on the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Kelly told fans on Instagram she would not be returning to the show unless Vicki was no longer on.
Around the same time, Kelly spoke to PEOPLE about how her daughter Jolie’s life has been impacted by Vicki’s allegations.
“My daughter doesn’t watch the show, but she reads social media,” Kelly explained. “She’s seen what people are saying and it upsets her.”
“She goes to a very conservative Catholic school. Her friends’ moms are all into the show, they’re seeing everything that’s going on. My daughter’s been crying, thinking that her friend’s parents aren’t going to let her see them because they’ll think that I do drugs.” she continued. “It hurts my daughter! Vicki’s a mother, she should know better.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
