Real Housewives Of Orange County Star Kelly Dodd Makes New Comments About Coronavirus; Says “Well, People Are Going To Die”

Remember when Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd was raising hell by calling co-star Vicki Gunvalson names? Or when she rang Shannon Beador’s bell by hitting a metal bowl on Shannon’s head with a mallet?

Kelly’s RHOC antics were annoying and inappropriate, but Kelly’s latest comments about the coronavirus outbreak are shocking and callous. Kelly doesn’t seem capable of zipping her lip.

According to Page Six, Kelly made insensitive comments about the Covid-19 epidemic during an Instagram Live post last week. On May 10, the clip was shared on Instagram by CELEBTM. In the video, a female friend of Kelly’s said, “It’s more every day. In New York, we’re down to 250 [deaths] a day.” Kelly seemed like she was comparing Covid-19 to “the flu.”

“But how many people die on a daily basis? Eight…nine million? Eight million?” Kelly asked a person off-camera. When the person agreed, Kelly stated, “Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”

Kelly’s former RHOC co-stars decided to comment on the video. “Unbelievable!!! What will it take for her to understand how serious this is ? People are dying everywhere. Where’s your compassion???” Tamra Judge wrote. For once, I agree with Tamra!

Vicki simply posted, “Wow!” Naturally, Kelly couldn’t remain silent. “Thanks for this!! Giving me more relevance !! Keep tagging me,” Kelly commented.

This isn’t the first time that Kelly has gotten into trouble while discussing the pandemic.  Page Six reported that Kelly took to Instagram on April 21, posting that she had recently traveled by plane and had been tested for Covid-19. When a fan criticized Kelly for flying during the coronavirus outbreak, Kelly fired back in a since-deleted post.

“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?”

Kelly ranted in another comment, “Do you know how many people died from the H1N1, the swine flu or SARS? It’s 25% get your facts straight you only hearing numbers not the reality! It’s God’s way of thinning the herd!” Wow! Just…wow.

But don’t worry, Kelly also added some helpful hints for staying safe during the pandemic. “If you are vulnerable or compromised stay inside; if you don’t, protect others by wearing masks and gloves keep your distance! And don’t go out if you are ill!”

Well, obviously Kelly wasn’t sorry enough to stop making more unfeeling remarks.
