REAL Housewives Of Orange County's Kelly Dodd has publicly demanded her stepdaughter Veronica 'stops talking' about her.
Her plea comes after activist and social worker Veronica slammed the RHOC star for mocking the Covid pandemic rules and Black Lives Matter.
Taking Twitter, Kelly claimed the 29-year-old "won't answer her calls", so "had to resort" to addressing her on social media.
Alongside four red heart emojis, she tweeted to her 200,000 followers: "We love you Veronica and we wish you would stop talking about us publicly…
"You won’t answer our calls. I have to resort to this tweet. thank you."
Fans have been quick to defend Veronica, who they feel has not done anything wrong by sharing her views in the public domain.
One tweeted: "'We love you' Gimme a break Kelly. You put her family on the world’s stage, said some really stupid stuff, and she had to respond.
"If she wants to handle her new found notoriety by using social media and not by talking to you, that’s her choice."
Another added: “'Stop talking about us publicly' she tweets publicly. #rhoc."
A third told 45-year-old Kelly: "You don't have to resort to this tweet. She's your step-daughter, surely there was a better way to handle this.
"As usual you run to social media which is what started this in the first place. Smh."
There are growing calls for Kelly to be dropped from RHOC after she made a series of controversial comments recently.
Over the past year, Kelly has come under fire for her views on the coronavirus pandemic, even calling it "God's way of thinning the herd” at one point.
She later apologized for her comments.
A fortnight ago, she made a toast to “super spreaders” while out partying in a crowded New Port Beach restaurant with her husband, Rick Leventhal, and friends.
There were people cheering “no masks” at the party, along with cries of "screw Covid".
Kelly later hit out to defend herself in a video, saying: “I’m getting a lot of hate because we're at a restaurant we’re allowed to be at. We’re allowed to be at a restaurant!”
The Bravo star continued to defend her joke, saying later: “I’m not a super spreader because there is nothing to spread. We all got the vaccine and we don’t have it.”
Drink company Positive Beverage didn't accept Kelly's version of events, however, and gave her the axe for her "controversial views and opinions".
Meanwhile, in October, she also faced backlash for wearing a hat that read "Drunk Wives Matter," as many thought it was insensitive toward the Black Lives Matter movement, at her bridal shower.
Kelly's stepdaughter Veronica last week gave her opinion on the reality star, saying on Instagram Live: "I don’t think it’s OK for people who say that they’ve experienced racism or prejudice to then turn around and inflict the same bigotry on other people.
"I don’t think you can experience the privileges of whiteness and then turn around and deny that those privileges exist."
Veronica also said she has "started a support group" for people who have conservative parents, or parents with different political beliefs.
Following the recent RHOC Reunion Show, Kelly recently appeared to confirm she's going to be fired.
On Instagram, she asked followers: "What did you guys think of the Reunion? Please share your thoughts!"
A fan commented: "You got fired for questioning masks and supporting Trump?! Braunwnyn admits to trying to get a 14 year old drugs and she’s given kleenex? she should be gone!"
Kelly responded: "Pretty much."
