Why does Kelly Dodd think Braunwyn Windham-Burke is a liar?

For RHOC viewers, it’s clear that Windham-Burke and Dodd ended bad terms after the filming of season 15. The two Bravo stars have traded jabs back and forth on social media. Windham-Burke recently said she believes Dodd and Simpson fired her from social media because they are Trump supporters.

“I don’t know why [they unfollowed me], but that’s strange, ”she said on the Getting real with the real housewives podcast. “I have a measure. Emily [Simpson] and Kelly [Dodd] both are very conservative. They are both Trump supporters [and] I’m very talkative on my Instagram about what I believe and I realize that not many people like them. ”

Windham-Burke said when they last saw each other for the end of season 15, they were all fine. However, things have not been smooth within the throw. Dodd has even accused Windham-Burke of making storylines for scoring a spinoff show.

“I think her sobriety thing is corrupted and I think it’s deceptive,” Dodd said. “I know her well enough that this was a pre-plot thing she wanted to do to get her own show. This was already planned, she wanted to get her own show. Her talent producer told her to stop drinking… it’s all under control. I don’t think she’s a real alcoholic. ”

“I have no doubt about the authenticity of her journey, I doubt the timing of her journey,” said Simpson. “It simply came to our notice then. Whatever gets her to the end result that makes her a better person, whatever makes her healthier, that is irrelevant, that is what I need not to focus on, but the end result. And that’s not why she does it. ”

Clearly, Simpson doesn’t believe in Windham-Burker’s intentions, but she’s happy for her as someone to get over her adventures.

The real housewives in Orange County Wednesday night air at 9pm ET on Bravo.
