Kelly Dodd Sounds Off On Her Feud With Vicki Gunvalson; Says “It’s Funny To See That She Calls Me The Bully, When She Is The Bully”

Kelly Dodd is getting candid about the drama that's happening and coming up on the current season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. "I don't like speaking in third person," she told Entertainment Tonight. "But I feel like it's all about Kelly Dodd. The whole group [drama] is about me."

During Tuesday night's episode of the Bravo hit reality series, Vicki Gunvalson and Dodd came face-to-face for the first time at Tamra Judge's housewarming party since the Season 13 reunion, where the OG of the OC implied that Dodd was doing drugs.

Dodd explains why she refused to talk to Gunvalson. "I don't want to give her any of my time or energy, because I can't control Vicki. I can only control myself. Even though she just knows how to poke the bear. So, I really don't want to give her the time of day … I just want her to leave me alone," she said.

Kelly says Vicki was "desperate" to make amends with her in order to get back into the group, after she was demoted to a friend of the show.

"She wants to be a part of the group," Kelly says. "She's kind of like an outcast. Nobody really wants to deal with her, and if she makes things right with me, everybody will be more apt to get her back into the groove."

Kelly then explains why she wants nothing to do with Gunvalson. "I just now know how Vicki is," she shared. "I know who she is and, you know, history always repeats itself. So, I would rather not have her in my life ever again … I just don't want that negativity, and I know how she could turn. So, I would prefer not to ever really have a friendship, or talk to her, ever again."

Kelly revealed that she entered therapy to help her deal with the drama with Gunvalson and co-stars.

"You know, I used to, like, hate her," she admits. "Like, despise -- I just could not. I despised her," she explained.  "I went through therapy with Dr. Dow, Dr. Michael Dow, and, you know, he told me not to wrestle with pigs, so to speak."

"I'm really trying to work hard at not holding onto that negativity," Kelly continued. "I got into therapy because I do have a temper. I don't want to react. I need to know the tools on how to not just blow off the handle … and beat the crap out of [my co-stars], basically."

Kelly claims that Gunvalson bullies her the entire season. "She comes after me like I'm the bully," Kelly scoffs. "She was the bully the whole entire season … She's poking me, poking me, poking me, poking me. So, it's funny to see that she calls me the bully, when she is the bully."

As for Kelly's relationships with Vicki's friends, Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge, who call themselves are the Tres Amigas, Dodd hints their friendships disintegrates.

"We all are friends, and you're gonna see how the evolution of the relationships go," Kelly hints. "I was really tight with Tamra, really tight with Shannon, and then they have this ‘tres amigas’ thing and form a gang mentality. It's kind of like season one again. It's like Groundhog Day. I swear, it's like I said, history repeats itself."

"I felt like the new girl again this season," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It's exactly the same thing for me [as season 11] … There’s a lot of people coming at me. I feel like I'm on Game of Thrones, you know what I mean?"
