The Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd hasn't talked to her former reality TV guest star brother Eric Meza since she kicked him out of the Newport Beach home she once shared with ex-husband Michael over a year ago — and the family feud is still raging on. Now, after Meza went public last week with shocking new allegations about his famous sister, the single mom told RadarOnline.com exclusively, “it’s all bull***t and lies!”
“My brother is jealous. He's defaming me and trying to ruin my career with his lies. I just want peace; I want to be left alone," she told Radar in an exclusive interview. "I have no choice now other than to lawyer up to protect my family.”
Meza told All About The Tea that Dodd is "angry and bitter," and has kept her daughter Jolie, 12, away from her uncle.
The report also claimed Dodd said was cheating on her ex-husband during their marriage, neglected her child and even did drugs.
The 42-year-old mom vehemently denied the claims to Radar.
“First of all, I do not do drugs! I drink, yes. But I definitely do not do drugs," she exclaimed.
According to Dodd, the drama with Meza started during season 10 of RHOC, in which he made several guest appearances.
“When Michael and I were going through a divorce, my mother asked me if Eric could stay with me for a bit because he got a job in Orange County," Dodd continued. “Everyone in my family knows that I have done everything to help my brother."
Now, she said Jolie knows about her uncle's allegations against her mother.
“The worst part about all of this is that my daughter knows about it. Jolie said to me, ‘what are my friends at school going to say?'"
“I mean, what are you doing to your niece, Eric? Think about how this is affecting her. Say whatever you want about me. Make up lies. I don’t give a f**k. But do not hurt her in the process."
Radar first reported that Dodd was estranged from Meza and their mother last fall.
She also suffered another major family shift recently. She finalized her divorce from husband Michael in March 2018 after ten years of marriage.
