RHOC's Heather Dubrow Slams Kelly Dodd as "Obsessed" and "Pathetic" as Kelly Fires Back by Suggesting Producers "Can't Stand" HerHeather Dubrow is speaking out about her recent encounter with Kelly Dodd at an Orange County restaurant.

After Kelly poked fun at her and her husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, as she filmed them eating while celebrating a friend’s birthday with husband Rick Leventhal, the Real Housewives of Orange County star is slamming her former castmate as “obsessed” and “pathetic.”

“It makes me laugh. Kelly seems to talk about me a lot, so at this point I don’t know whether to be really flattered that she’s so obsessed with me or sad for her that she has no other content,” Heather told Page Six on Tuesday.

According to Heather, Kelly should be focusing on her post-RHOC chapter rather than her ex-co-stars.

“No. 1: You don’t burn bridges and No. 2 you have to figure out your next steps, and I don’t think sitting at a restaurant filming former cast members is a viable employment opportunity, and it just seems sad, pathetic,” Heather explained. “[You have to] extract yourself elegantly.”

Although Heather has denied getting Kelly fired, she did acknowledge that Kelly’s exit greatly impacted her decision to return.

“I think that it was paramount to my return that the show was going in a different direction,” she said, adding that Bravo likely contacted her because they “wanted” to shake up the series after a number of dark moments featuring Kelly.

As RHOC fans will recall, Kelly accused Heather’s son of giving her COVID-19 at a New Year’s Eve party earlier this year and was quickly hit with a letter of cease and desist, which forced her to apologize. After that, Kelly suggested Heather lied in Not All Diamonds and Rosé to “make her look good and me look bad.”

In response to Heather’s interview, Kelly shared a statement on Twitter.

“If I’m so irrelevant why did your lawyer send me 2 cease & desist letters? BTW no one ‘heckled’ you. I just got video of you & Gomer Pyle eating alone at a table for 6. You’re the ‘sad & pathetic’ one. Ask anyone in production. They can’t stand you,” she wrote.


In the Instagram Story video she shared of Heather and Terry at the restaurant, Kelly shaded her former castmates as “dumb and dumber” and “f-ck faces.”

“Should I ask these a–holes why they’re suing me?” she also asked. “Terry and Heather. Why are they suing me? I think [my husband Rick Leventhal] might ask why they put a cease and desist on us.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
