"She's very upset, of course. She feels she was treated unfairly but is excited for her next projects, her career is just taking off.”
In addition to the trio of former Housewives being axed, the show added past cast member Heather Dubrow - who famously feuded with Kelly back in 2016.
Heather, 52, previously starred on the Bravo show from Season 7 through 11 - where she left after Kelly’s arrival.
“There's definitely resentment about Heather coming back in her place, Kelly's not happy about that.
“But she ultimately wishes the show well and wants to move forward with her life,” the insider insisted.
There are also messages from some of the star’s 828K followers that proclaim to boycott the franchise now that the brunette beauty is gone.
“Kelly is also incredibly thankful for the past five seasons and wishes nothing but the best for the cast and the show.
“She couldn’t be more excited to get to work on new projects with her husband Rick,” they added of her husband, reporter Rick Leventhal.
Bravo did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Yesterday, a RHOC spokesperson confirmed the departure of Kelly, Braunwyn and Elizabeth to Variety.
The reality stars’ contracts were not renewed for next season, which is set to start filming next month.
Current cast members Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson will return for the upcoming season, while the show is expected to add one or two new women to the cast.
She also made remarks on her Instagram after fans called her out for flying from New York to California despite quarantine guidelines - saying people who died from Covid would have "died anyway" with or without the virus.
