She’s back! Despite public outcry for Bravo to can Kelly Dodd, the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star confirmed she’ll be returning for season 15. Taking to her social media on Thursday, August 13, the controversial Bravo personality showed off her very first confessional look of the year and made jaws drop with her stunning transformation.
As The Blast reported, viewers demanded the network ax Kelly Dodd from “RHOC” after they fired “Vanderpump Rules” stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute over a past racial incident.
Fans were quick to point out several posts where Kelly Dodd shared “insensitive” and “tone-deaf” comments following the fallout from George Floyd‘s death, as well as downplaying the Coronavirus pandemic. It appears that Bravo ignored the cries to can Kelly because the “Orange County” HBIC is back.
Kelly Dodd was all smiles as she showed off her first glam of the season ahead of the weekend. Sporting a long-sleeved velvet dress with a low-cut deep v-neck, the star seemed unbothered by haters and ready for the spotlight once again.

Wearing giant earrings to match her rhinestoned v-neck trim, Kelly Dodd wore her highlighted hair down and curled with her face full of glam. “I love my makeup ?? Shout out to the best makeup artist @katguevaramua thank you!!!!” she captioned the show return snap.
Her “RHOC” co-star, Gina Kirschenheiter, immediately chimed in, showing her love despite all the drama she stirred last season. “Beautiful!!!!” Gina replied. Even Kelly’s fiancé, Rick Leventhal, dropped his wife-to-be a line. “Stunning ❤️,” he commented. Fans swarmed on the photo, sending mixed reviews Kelly Dodd’s way.
“I hope this means you are on the RHOC next season,” one hopeful follower wrote. “Confessional lewkkk???” asked another. “Welcome back to the OC queen!!” shared a third. But not everyone was feeling Kelly’s look.
“Those earrings are yuck,” one hater wrote. “I can’t believe Bravo is letting you back after everything you said,” shared another.
