The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tells ET she and 'the OG of the OC' have reconciled!
Hell may have frozen over at the Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 reunion.
After a season of below-the-belt jabs traded back and forth, Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson have made up -- at least according to Kelly.
"We did, yeah," the reality star shares with ET. "I mean, I wish the best for Vicki. I don’t want to hold onto grudges with her, but I wish Vicki the best, I really do."
After the cast shot their season 14 reunion -- which apparently features the "meltdown to end all meltdowns," courtesy of Vicki -- gossip reports surfaced that Kelly and Vicki hugged things out during the taping, which Kelly has now seemingly confirmed. Still, it's unclear if the one-time close pals are truly friends again or are just keeping things cordial. Vicki kind of questioned Kelly's intentions when it came to her new engagement to Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal when ET spoke with the "OG of the OC" at BravoCon, but Kelly tells ET she’s totally in love and moving ahead with her wedding plan.
"We wanna get married Oct. 10, 2020, however it's kind of a fast thing," she admits. "I mean, we’re so busy all of December, January. We don't -- were hoping for that. We just don't know, logistically, how were gonna do it."
ET spoke with Kelly at the DailyMail.com and DailyMailTV Holiday Party at Cathédrale in New York City, the city where she’s spending quite a bit of time now, as it’s the home base for her fiance. While she previously told ET she's interested in a "job transfer" from RHOC to The Real Housewives of New York City, Kelly now says she would leave Housewives behind to live in NYC full-time with her love, if it comes down to it.
"New York is my jam," she exclaims. "I have tons of friends here, I have Rick here. I would love to move to New York. I feel like I fit in way more in New York than I do in Orange County … New York’s more my speed."
Kelly has been spending more and more time in the city as of late, including the recent Thanksgiving holiday, alongside her 13-year-old daughter, Jolie. It was the first time that Jolie and Rick got in a lot of quality time together, and Kelly says it went well.
"Oh, they love each other," Kelly gushes. "I mean, we spent a whole week together and Jolie goes, 'I want to come back for Christmas,' so he was, like, really shocked about it. It was really cute, yeah."
Chances are Kelly and her kiddo will be spending the next holiday in her home state of Arizona, though.
"We go to my grandma, my mom’s house for New Year’s Eve, and then we go to my brother’s house for Christmas," she shares. "We're Mexican, so we eat tamales and pozole, and we go to midnight mass. Yeah, we have a ton of traditions."
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
