Now, her on-and-off-screen nemesis, Heather, 52, is bashing her former cast mate for her past behavior.
“I mean, you know, cancel culture is such a tricky thing because when there’s gray area it’s hard because [it] can ruin people’s lives and careers and whatnot,” she told Us Weekly.
The brunette beauty continued: “Having said that, and having not seen exactly what was said, I’ll tell you this: a leopard doesn’t change its spots, right?
“People show you who they are. And at some point, you have to listen.”

While she noted she believes people are capable of change, she was quick to point out that is not always the case.
She added: “Hopefully, people do grow and evolve but after years and years of a pattern.
“I think sometimes you get to the point where you go, ‘Yeah, that’s the path you’re on. That’s not changing.’”
Heather – who left the Bravo franchise in 2017 – has long feuded with the Positive Beverage co-founder from their time starring on the series together.

The pair only shared one year together in 2016 when Kelly first joined the show in season 11.
During filming, the continually had heated exchanges and Heather ultimately left when production wrapped.
Their beef seemed to have died down, however, tensions once again escalated in 2018 when Kelly filmed Heather without her consent as she chatted with a friend outside her gym.
Kelly can be heard in the clip saying: “Heather Dubrow has been sitting there, I’m trying to avoid her at all costs.

“Trying to get in my workout and she won’t leave the area. Stop talking! I need to get my workout in and I don’t wanna run into you.”
The outspoken California girl was previously under fire in May for saying that the coronavirus pandemic is “God’s way of thinning the herd.”
She told a critic on Instagram: “If it’s dangerous why are the airlines still flying? You think I want to fly? I had to get back, how is that elitist? People are so judgmental it’s sick!”

The new Mrs. Leventhal continued: “Even if I got it I won’t die from it !! Do you know how many people died from the H1N1, the swine flu or SARS?
“It’s 25% get your facts straight you are only hearing numbers not the reality! It’s God’s way of thinning the herd!”
After receiving mass backlash, Kelly apologized for her comments and claimed she meant it as a question rather than an offensive statement.

Critics once again swarmed in her comments section after she was accused of “mocking” the Black Lives Matter movement by posting a selfie sporting a black cap that read “Drunk Wives Matter” in gold font.
One commenter called the hat “incredibly tone deaf,” while the RHOC star responded: “lady it’s a joke! It’s a play on words… get a sense of humor!”
Another person called the hat “insensitive,” to which the 45-year-old responded: “it’s not. my girlfriend bought it for me as a gift. it’s a play on words . Some people aren’t that smart.”
