AceShowbiz - Kelly Dodd apparently is still keeping tabs on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" following her exit. On Monday, December 27, Kelly took to her Twitter account to make a comment on how the current season of "RHOC" performs without her.
After learning that the December 22 episode of the Bravo reality TV series was watched by 822,000 viewers in real-time, Kelly wrote, "Wait, wasn't I the ratings problem ? Wasn't there a boycott ??" Further shading the show, she continued, "We got over a million viewers 14 out of 16 weeks last season despite HUGE competition from election coverage on the news !!! This year ? #RHOC16 under a million 3x in 4 weeks ! Hey @Andy How's that reboot going ???"
It didn't take long for Andy Cohen to respond to the diss. "Good morning! Reboot going great. Feels like a return to form for #RHOC," the 53-year-old producer wrote on Tuesday. "Look at the delayed numbers, not live. That's what's measured."
It seemed like people trolled Kelly for not knowing how ratings work and needing Andy to explain it to her. Noticing that it was picked up by Page Six, Kelly took to the blue bird app to defend herself. "No one needs to explain ratings to me. I know how they work.I compared RHOC15’s overnights to RHOC16’s. We got more viewers every week so far. If Andy wants to add delayed views to boost his numbers he needs to add those to Season 15 too. Bet we still win. @PageSix #spin #facts," so she tweeted.
Kelly used to be a full-time cast member on "RHOC" for five seasons before she was let go ahead of season 16 earlier this year. Bravo reportedly decided not to renew her contract after she received a huge of flak for controversial opinions regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
Of her firing, Kelly shared on SiriusXM's "Jeff Lewis Live" in June that she was "blindsided." She added, "You want somebody to love to hate you, or you want people to really love you, but I have a million followers and they are diehard, like, fans, and they love me. And then I have, then I have this little group of people that are the cancel culture that hate me. And so they're the loud ones. They're the, actually the ones that can't afford to. The woke, broke people. They love to hate me."
