Kelly Dodd Face-Shames Vicki Gunvalson: That Facelift Malfunctioned!
The Real Housewives of Orange County won’t return for a while, but there’s plenty of drama in real time.
Tamra Judge shared a photo of Vicki Gunvalson that some considered to be unflattering.
Kelly Dodd took it further, however, and shamed Vicki over her “malfunctioned” facelift. Yikes!
As you may recall, Andy Cohen is expecting a baby, which is of course very exciting news.
Naturally, he held a baby shower that featured a ton of celebrity guests — including those whom he knows from work.
On Saturday, January 26, Tamra Judge shared a photo from that party.
In the photo, she is with on-again, off-again bestie Shannon Beador and with frenemy-turned-friend Vicki Gunvalson.
Kelly Dodd commented on Tamra’s photo on Instagram, and her words were … unkind.
“That facelift Vicki got really did malfunction,” Kelly wrote.
Now, Kelly did delete the comment, perhaps after realizing that it was a little too much.
But it had already been seen by many, many people who were quick to take her down a peg.
“Kelly Dodd — not nice,” scolded one fan. “You’re better than that.”
“Commenting mean things on an Instagram post?” commented an astonished followers.
That same commenter admonished Kelly: “Be a better role model for your daughter.”
“Haters gonna hate,” another commenter wrote, dismissing Kelly’s word. “People are so damn mean and rude.”
“She’s always been mean,” accused another. “It’s sad.”
“It’s really starting to show how much she hates herself and her own life,” that same follower claimed.
“I’ve met some mean women but man she is MEAN,” that comment concluded. “Says a lot about who she really is.”
“Ya’ll look great…ready for next season,” praised a more positive comment.
That comment continued: “Hopefully Kelly finds something else to do…don’t want to be mean but she doesn’t have good manners…”
Other commenters, however, shared Kelly Dodd’s alleged bad manners.
One wrote that Vicki Gunvalson’s face, now free of fillers, looked “like an avocado.”
Everybody loves avocado but nobody wants to be compared to one, you know?
“I find it fascinating that the people sticking up for Vicki are being rude and hateful towards Kelly,” points out one comment. “How is it any different?”
“If you are cutting down and bashing someone who’s being rude,” the comment continues. “You’re doing the exact same thing.”
The debatable comment concludes: “but think it’s okay because you’re standing up for someone else.”
Back in July, Vicki Gunvalson opened up very frankly about plastic surgery while speaking to Us Weekly.
“I had a lot of fillers in my face,” Vicki admitted. “And I didn’t feel like it was me anymore.”
“I had too many doctors, too many different times say, ‘Let’s do this, let’s do that, let’s fill here, let’s do Voluma, let’s do Sculptra,’” she said.
“And by the time I was done,” Vicki noted. “I looked in the mirror and was like, ‘I don’t even look like myself.’”
Notably, one of the earliest episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County featured Vicki, center stage, at a botox party.
That said, people are absolutely entitled to change their minds and do whatever they like to their flesh prisons.
Vicki also revealed that it was with some shady-sounding encouragement from Tamra that she decided to go under the knife.
“Tamra kept telling me, ‘You need to do another face-lift, your neck is getting old!’” she shared.
Who talks like that to their “friend?”
“And I’m like, ‘Wonderful.’ Tamra looks so good. She got hers done about a year ago,” Vicki continued.
She said: “I kept asking Tamra and she goes, ‘Yes! You need it, you need it!’”
“Now my skin looks baby smooth,” she shared. “I don’t have a wrinkle, I don’t have a divot and I have no fillers. I look like was 40 or 35.”
So maybe the photo that Tamra shared was simply bad lighting — not that she looked bad in it.
