“It’s actually kinda funny… I’ve heard these rumors every year for the last five years,” she posted on Tuesday. “Looking forward to my sixth season #RHOC 16 !”
It has been reported that Bravo has not made any casting decisions at this time.
Speculation she was leaving “RHOC” arose when her Instagram bio was changed to read, “Proud veteran castmember of #RHOC.” However, sources told US Weekly that Dodd’s husband, Rick Leventhal, made the change to “reflect Kelly’s longtime tenure on the show.” After the confusion, Dodd edited the bio to read, “proud castmember of #RHOC.”
