AceShowbiz - Braunwyn Windham-Burke is cashing on her drama with Kelly Dodd. Having launched "Still Sober, Still Gay" merchandise inspired by her argument with her former co-star, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" alum bragged about having a new "lifetime tagline."
On Friday, June 18, the 43-year-old shared on Instagram a picture of herself and some snaps of rainbow-colored T-shirts. In the caption, she wrote, "Welp- no matter what anyone says, I'm #stillsober & #stillgay. Click the link in my bio to directly support a queer kid's scholarship fund through our #AmplifiedVoices merch @pflag @pflagnewportbeach ... Turning drama into a lifetime tagline."
Braundwyn's post came just one day after Kelly unleashed screenshots of text message exchange between the two on Instagram. In the DM, the latter could be seen blaming the mother of seven for their firing from "RHOC". She first argued, "This was your fault. We'd still be on the show if you didn't make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political 'woke' BS."
Kelly further raged, "Your lies about me, calling me a racist and a homophobe were horribly destructive and your phony storylines didn't help either." In response, Braunwyn simply noted, "Well I'm still sober and still gay, like I said if you ever want to talk I'm here."
Kelly captioned the screenshots by noting, "I can't believe this. Braunwyn has the audacity to text me !!" She went on fuming, "She went on a podcast .. She said she was fired from the show because we all didn't like her because she's gay. Not because she's a horrible person. Not because she treated everyone like s**t and made no effort to be friends with us."
"Not because she went on a press tour and made horrible accusations about us calling all of us homophobes and racist, Not because she's a terrible mother. Not because she's a horrible person to her husband. The only reason she was fired is because she is gay," Kelly stressed. "What a f**king nut job classic narcissist!"
Brauwyn, however, claimed that she has no ill feelings towards Kelly. "I give people second chances, 10th chances, 12th. That's who I am. I don't like to hold on to anger and hate. I'm not that person," she told Entertainment Tonight. "A big part of my program is making amends, and moving on, and letting go. So I was just like, 'Hey, it's over, we're neighbors, what is, what is.' And then to see it back there, and it's like, 'your fake storylines.' I'm like, 'Still sober, still gay.' "
