Home » Kelly Dodd Asks Stepdaughter Veronica to “Stop Talking” About Her as RHOC Star Claims She’s Been Ignoring Her Calls
Kelly Dodd and her step-daughter, Veronica Leventhal, are at war.
Just under four months after Kelly married her husband Rick Leventhal in Napa, California, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member shared a public statement in which she requested Veronica to stop talking about her and Rick before reacting to news of her recently launched support group for children of conservative parents.
First, Kelly, 45, retweeted the February 6 story by Reality Blurb in which Veronica made the comments about the support group while also speaking positively about Kelly.
“We love you Veronica and we wish you would stop talking about us publicly .. you won’t answer our calls. I have to resort to this tweet. Thank you,” Kelly added on Twitter on Sunday, February 7.
After Veronica revealed on the February 2 episode of the Shut Up Evan podcast that she had started a support group in hopes of helping children of parents with differing political beliefs find boundaries and noted that certain people have a “lack of diversity and understanding,” Kelly shared Reality Blurb‘s article about the topic on her Twitter page.
Right away, she was met with comments from fans, who found it a bit ridiculous that Veronica had started a group.
“Support group for kids [with] conservative parents??? What the actual f**k?” one person asked.
“It really takes away from actual abuse victims. Next is a support group because Veronica’s Starbucks got cold too fast,” another person said.
“Good point!” Kelly agreed.
As RHOC fans may have seen, Veronica seemingly called out Kelly on her Instagram Stories at the end of last month after seeing that Kelly had claimed to be Black during the season 15 reunion and attempted to prove she is part of “all races” with a DNA test.
“I don’t think that you can claim ownership on a culture or a nationality and then disallow privileges to those people, either through certain political perspectives or just subjugating them in other ways. And I don’t think you can use your personal multiculturalism as a shield for people saying that you have biases,” Veronica explained, in part.
A short time later, Kelly appeared to take aim at Veronica’s tree tattoo while confirming she and Rick were putting his Westhampton home on the market.
“It goes on the market next week!! Someone who got a stupid tattoo of a tree on their back should probably get tattoo laser removal ASAP!!” she wrote in a since-deleted post.
