Following news of an impending cast shakeup, Kelly reacted to a couple of fans who wanted to see her back while also discussing cancel culture and explaining why she and husband Rick Leventhal took their $1.39 million Westhampton Beach house off the market.
“You’ll still be on RHOC?!! [Please] don’t leave the show!!! (Selfish of me lol),” one person wrote on May 23.
“Thank you but I don’t know and don’t care!!” Kelly replied, revealing that she isn’t concerned about whether or not she’s asked back.
“You have to stay. [It] wouldn’t be the same without you!” another fan said.
“Awe thank you but I’m living my life with my beautiful husband and my daughter!!” Kelly explained. “Life goes on… the show is not my life!”
Kelly then responded to another fan who gave a nod to the RHOC season 15 reunion, which aired earlier this year and featured Kelly answering questions about her claim of being Black and her “Drunk Wives Matter” hat.
“Just finally watched reunion [part two]. Favorite housewife hands down! Good for you for living and not being scared to speak your mind,” the person said.
“That was so nice… it’s really hard to do especially when the cancel culture comes after you,” Kelly replied, seemingly giving a nod to the many calls for her firing.
Also on Instagram over the weekend, Kelly shared a photo from the pool deck of her and Rick’s beach house.
“Thank you [Go Floats] for making our pool more fun! We love our floats & our putt putt game. See you in the OC… dinner on us,” she wrote in the caption.
Then, in the comments section of the post, after a fan suspected she and Rick had been unable to unload their East Coast property, Kelly revealed that they actually decided to keep the home.
“Didn’t the house sell yet?” a fan asked.
“Keeping the house!!” Kelly replied. “Took it off the market… we were just testing it.”
