The RHOC feud continues
Braunwyn Windham-Burke is promoting mental health awareness. But she’s denying Kelly’s claims that she was placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold. The 43-year-old spoke out in a video posted to her Instagram Story.
“Good morning. So once again, I’m waking up, reading some stuff and honestly, there’s certain people I work with that I’m shocked how much they get away with,” Braunwyn said in the clip. “How many lies they’re allowed to tell – how it seems like nothing really happens.”
Braunwyn said she has “never been on a 5150 hold.” Then, she called out Kelly on her constant lies. While Braunwyn also stated that “5150 holds are good for people who need them.” However, she sees no “shame in mental health issues.” She wants to shine a positive light on mental health.
Kelly Dodd continues to make 5150 claims
According to the Orange County Health Care Agency, a 5150 hold is for adults who suffer a serious mental health problem are are “involuntarily detained for a 72-hour psychiatric hospitalization when evaluated to be a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled.”
In her video, Braunwyn said she’s holding Zoom calls to discuss mental health and offer support to those who need it. As for Kelly, she’s not backing down on her clues. She tweeted and then deleted a reference to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong’s late husband, Russell Armstrong.
“Haven’t they learned anything from Taylor Armstrong’s late husband?” Kelly tweeted at the time. “Clean up your own house. Get help. Stop blaming others.”
Russell Armstrong died via suicide on August 15, 2011, one month after Taylor filed for divorce. She claimed that he fractured her orbital floor. The RHOBH alum needed reconstructive surgery on her right eye. Russell was allegedly concerned over how Bravo portrayed him on the reality show, which ultimately led to his suicide. Taylor left the show after Season 3.
