Braunwyn Wyndham-Burke and Kelly Dodd may have started off the 15th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County as friends, but they didn’t end up on good terms.

After revealing days ago that she is no longer speaking with any of her co-stars, the mother of seven revealed that she and Kelly are completely different before teasing a potentially dramatic encounter with her castmate at the upcoming reunion special of the Bravo reality series.

“I have a lot of thoughts on [Kelly],” Braunwyn told the Digital Spy on October 13. “I’m saving most of them for the reunion, but Kelly and I are diametrically opposed right now with our ideology. I think everyone knows that.”

According to Braunwyn, she and her RHOC co-stars were forced to stay away from one another after the initial outbreak of COVID-19 earlier this year. Then, after resuming filming with safety precautions in place, Braunwyn claims she and the cast were driven apart.

“I have to say that the pandemic separated us, physically, but I didn’t know how much it was going to drive us apart. It’s been very hard to keep my mouth shut. Part of the thing you do when you’re on this show is you let the story play out for the viewers. I’m keeping my opinions to myself for now, but watch the reunion. Because yeah, I have a lot of thoughts,” Braunwyn explained.

As for why Braunwyn is no longer speaking to the RHOC cast, she told the outlet during a previous interview that the ladies of the series couldn’t handle the growth she experienced in 2020.

“When you start changing sometimes, not everyone is comfortable with [it],” she shared.

She then told her co-stars, “I’m very happy with where I’m at right now. You don’t have to support me, but get out of my way.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
