Kelly Dodd doesn’t think Braunwyn Windham-Burke is a “real alcoholic.”

While appearing on Wednesday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member called Braunwyn’s sobriety storyline “contrived” and “pre-plotted” before agreeing she will do anything to “stay in the limelight” and joking about being a “last resort” guest on Andy Cohen‘s show.

“I don’t regret it because I think her whole sobriety thing is contrived and I think it’s fake,” Kelly admitted on the December 2 episode after being asked if she felt she was insensitive to Braunwyn’s decision not to drink.

“I don’t think she had seven kids so she could ’not drink’ and I know her well enough that this was a pre-plotted thing that she wanted to do to get her own show,” Kelly continued. “[Braunwyn] wanted to get her own show. Her talent agent told her to stop drinking. It’s all contrived. I don’t believe she is a real alcoholic.”

“You’ll see it later on at the end of the show what happens. It’s really good,” she teased.

Meanwhile, on Instagram, Kelly further discussed her thoughts on Braunwyn.

“Not bad of a season yet but for the love of God get rid of Braunwyn!!!! What she won’t do to stay in the limelight,” one person wrote in the comments section of her latest post.

“Exactly,” Kelly replied along with a red heart emoji.

“Braunwyn is nuts!!!” said a second fan.

“She’s a phony,” Kelly agreed.

Another person wanted to know if Kelly was on board with a complete cast overhaul ahead of RHOC season 16.

“No,” she responded along with a tears of joy emoji.

A fourth fan took note of the fact that Kelly had been invited to WWHL after claiming she was likely banned from appearing on the series because she failed to be a “sheep” for the network.

“WOW! What happened? Did Andy finally [run] out of guests [so he] graciously invited you? He better not make it all about BrownWind being an alcoholic and now a lesbian. Good for her, but the timing of those [announcements were] suspicious,” the person wrote.

“[Laughing my f*cking a** off],” Kelly replied. “Yep, I was the last resort.”
