Weeks after alleging Michael hasn’t seen their daughter, Jolie, in five months, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member leaked a text message from her ex in which he said he was too busy to get Jolie before opening up about their custody and divorce battle and sharing a text she received from Michael’s girlfriend, Laura.
“What kind of father doesn’t want to spend time with his daughter? [Michael] hasn’t been with her in [six months]. Thank God for [Rick Leventhal],” Kelly asked, along with a text exchange between her and Michael.
During their conversation, Kelly mentioned some “dates” to Michael and said she hoped he and Jolie could “spend these days together.” Then, in another message, Kelly asked Michael if he could pick her up from tennis practice and “perhaps take her to dinner.”
“I can’t today, I’m busy,” Michael replied.
In a video, Kelly continued her rant against Michael and said she’s spent “thousands and thousands of dollars” on their custody and divorce battle.
“I put Michael on blast because he does nothing with Jolie, he doesn’t want to see her, he’s been taking me to court,” Kelly shared, adding that she is trying to “get all of the loose ends of our divorce finalized.”
“He won’t sign the papers. He just keeps dragging it out and dragging it out and he wants me to not blast him anymore. So, if you don’t want me to blast you anymore, just sign the f*cking papers, Michael Dodd. Sign the papers and I won’t blast you,” she continued.
In another Instagram Stories post shared hours later, Kelly revealed that after sharing Michael’s text and putting him on blast in her video, she received a message from his girlfriend, Laura.
“Now I’m getting [texts] from the [girlfriend],” she revealed.
In the texts, Laura wondered what Kelly was doing before demanding she take down the posts she made against Michael.
“This all makes you look bad,” Laura said. “The only thing Michael responded to you is that he can’t pick Jolie up. You asked at 10 a.m. the same day, it was my 40th birthday on Friday, we had plans with family today.”
In response, Kelly said that if the two of them had plans with their family, Jolie, who is part of Michael’s family, should have been included.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
