In the Season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, we meet the new housewife, Kelly Meza-Dodd. Kelly is a friend of Meghan King Edmond’s but she quickly befriends Vicki Gunvalson, who proudly calls Kelly “a whoop-it-girl.” Kelly is a stay-at-home mom who lives with her 9-year-old daughter Jolie, her younger brother Eric and her mom Bobbi. Bravo reports that after “a rocky period in her marriage, she recently reconciled with her husband Michael.”
