‘RHOC’ alum Kelly Dodd revealed shocking information to her fans and followers on Instagram. The housewife posted a slew of screenshots with her ex-husband, Michael J Dodd. The reality star decided to reveal Michael’s “abusive” and “brash” words to her fans and followers through her social media platform. Kelly seemed to have decided to do so while at a “bougie” gathering with her current husband, Rick Levanthal, which also reportedly involved some drinking. In the bunch of carousel images she posted, observers can spot that Michael calls Kelly many abusive and disrespectful terms. However, Kelly does seem to push back at her husband with some equally derogatory words.

In the myriad of screenshots that Kelly shared, Michael calls his ex-wife a “f*****g stupid b***h” while questioning her qualifications as a mother. He wrote in a message, “What kind of mom are you you f*****g stupid piece of s**t” followed by, “You’re a w***e.” On the other hand, Kelly accuses Michael back of not being a good father to their daughter, Jolie Dodd, by saying, “Focus on your kid not me.” And, “She’s on the streets,” Kelly continues writing, “I told you I was leaving.” Finally, she messages Michael that she is “blocking” him. In another message, the ex ‘RHOC’ star pens, “I gave you the courtesy to let you know I’m out of town. You couldn’t give me the same courtesy? What the f**k is wrong with you?” alleging that Michael did not notify about his plans regarding their daughter.

Kelly’s decision to post her chats with Michael may or may not have been influenced by intoxication, but the former did reveal that her reasons to do so “finally” are because she allegedly endured “years and years” of abuse from her ex-husband. She also stated that she never spoke up about the matter while on the show and said she was “sick of this s**t.” Even Rick testifies to his wife’s claims by adding that Michael “came at him from day one.” He also says he’s “taken great care of his daughter,” demanding respect from Michael. In the next story, Kelly also states that she will discuss the matter on the couple’s podcast, ‘Rick & Kelly Show’.
