Kelly Dodd is back at it again. The Real Housewives of Orange County star is back with another
crap hot take on the coronavirus pandemic. As we all know, this isn’t the first time Kelly has landed in hot water over such statements. Other (former) cast members like Vicki Gunvalson, have also been taken to task about their corona sentiments. But none like Kelly. Maybe because she won’t stop spewing nonsense about it. Just a thought!
Kelly first caught heat for traveling back and forth to New York to be with her fiance, Rick Leventhal. She then went a step further and made a flippant remark about mortality during the outbreak. Kelly’s exact words? “Well, people are going to die.” But she wasn’t done. Kelly also said that maybe coronavirus is god’s way of “thinning the heard”. She later apologized for it, but fans weren’t hearing it and have since turned on Kelly. Who could blame them? Because Kelly has proven she hasn’t learned her lesson.
Kelly is now out and about, without a mask. Us Weekly reports that Kelly went out to celebrate the reopening of restaurants and stores in Orange County.“Yay, we finally get to have a meal out,” she said in a video via her Instagram stories. “Yay, no one is wearing a mask. I love it. Yay!” It’s important to note that employees were seen very clearly wearing masks in her video, despite what she was saying.
As if that wasn’t shocking enough, Kelly then said, “No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus.” She continued, “It’s not the government’s job to protect my health. It’s the government’s job to protect my RIGHTS. It’s my job to protect my health. When you trade liberty for safety you end up losing both.” Well, who knew Kelly was a political science major!
Once again, Kelly is clearly misguided in her statements. It’s been confirmed that Orange County has lost more than 131 people to the coronavirus in the last few months. According to the Los Angeles Times, the county even recorded 14 deaths related to the virus just a few days before Kelly was out on the town. It’s the highest single-day total since the pandemic began.
Kelly later tried
and failed to clarify what she meant. “I was by no means minimizing deaths that have been caused by this virus. And I feel for their loved ones,” she explained in an Instagram video. “However, Orange County has 133 deaths out of 3 million people, much lower than most. I felt encouraged and excited that people were out and about and there was some sense of normalcy.”

Well, Kelly might feel a sense of normalcy, but the reality is so many others are not. I hope she enjoyed that meal.
