Kelly Dodd is not backing down in her battle with reality TV rival Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
Dodd, 45, doubled his allegations that Windham-Burke “alone” ruined “The Real Housewives of Orange County” – and caused both of their recent rejections from the show.
“All she cares about is herself and being famous, and she ruined alone last season,” Dodd told Page Six in a statement Thursday before claiming, “Ask any of my cast. They will tell you the same thing. No one wanted to film with her or be near her, let alone be friends with her. ”
Earlier on Thursday, Dodd released a series of explosive texts claiming that Windham-Burke created “false stories”
Windham-Burke, 43, later dismissed Dodd’s claims and told us, “You just have to laugh at this point – only Kelly Dodd would post screenshots of her own lyrics that make her look wildly immature. I guess that’s how it is to be bitter. ”
Dodd told us in response, “Braunwyn is a hypocrite and a liar.”
“She followed me and my cast in the worst possible way,” Dodd added. “She made false, defamatory and horrible accusations against me … and when she was asked about my marriage to Rick [Leventhal] on ‘Entertainment Tonight’ she gave an ugly, negative response. ”
In October, “Entertainment Tonight” asked Windham-Burke what she thought of Dodd’s controversial remark that COVID-19 was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” But Windham-Burke turned the focus to the fact that Dodd was often seen from the west coast to New York to spend time with his beau in the midst of the pandemic.
“Leaving your daughter during a global pandemic was strange to me,” Windham-Burke told ET. “I can not imagine that.”
Dodd also told us that Windham-Burke’s claim to be “awake” is a “joke”.
Dodd said her former co-stars’ exit from the show had “nothing to do with her alleged political beliefs and everything she had to do with her being a horrible, sincere and fame-hungry person.”
Meanwhile, Windham-Burke told us earlier that she saw the potential for peace between her and Dodd, noting: “I have great faith in growing and changing, and second chance (or in this case 10th or 11th chance). ”
Both women were released from “RHOC” earlier this week along with novice Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.
“This was your fault,” the disgruntled Dodd Windham-Burke said in the leaked lyrics. “We would still be on the show if you did not make things so dark and ugly and brought all the political ‘waking’ BS.”
A source close to the production told Page Six on Thursday: “Kelly should take responsibility for herself being fired instead of pointing fingers at everyone else.”
