Heather Dubrow will be rejoining the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County when their new season begins and Kelly Dodd was not shy about her feelings toward her former castmate.

Kelly’s contract was not renewed with the franchise along with Elizabeth Vargas and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.

In a social media post, Kelly thanked her fans for their love and support over the last 5 years and declared that “the next five years will be even better.”

Several RHOC gossip pages shared the news of the casting shakeup and fans of the franchise had a lot of mixed emotions.

Kelly chimed in to share her feelings on the announcement and threw some shade Heather’s way and referred to her as a “snob.”

She wrote, “I love everyone, except the snob [Heather Dubrow].”

Despite Kelly appearing to be appreciative of the time she spent on the show, her comment hints that she may have a little resentment toward her former castmate turned replacement.
