Unless you’ve been living off the grid with no internet access, you know that a reckoning is happening over at Bravo.
First Vanderpump Rules cleaned house by firing Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members over their past racist actions. Fans have started a petition for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright to follow suit. And now, Tamra Judge is calling for Kelly Dodd to be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County for her own racist past.
The RHOC alum shared her opinion after a fan brought up the subject during a Q&A on her Instagram Stories. “Do you think Kelly should be fired for her racist statements coming to light?” the Instagram user asked, according to People.
“Yes I do. That TMZ video is disgusting!” Tamra replied. “Bravo shouldn’t just single certain people out like Stassi & Kristen. There should be zero tolerance at this point.”

The video the former Housewife is referencing features a drunk Kelly chatting with paparazzi in L.A. back in 2016. In the clip, the OC firebrand, who was then in her first season on the show, goes on an absolutely racist rant. “I don’t like Black guys. I don’t even know any Black guys,” she tells the cameraman point-blank.
The RHOC star also went on to say she “doesn’t care” about her then-husband and claimed she was “M.B.A., married but available.” (Kelly and Michael Dodd have since divorced.) She then shoved the camera and began telling people standing nearby to Google her. It was honestly all just completely gross, but Kelly later apologized in a statement and never faced repercussions from the network over her racist comments.

Meanwhile, Tamra‘s call for Kelly‘s firing comes on the heels of her own support for Black Lives Matter. Earlier this month, the OC veteran posted a photo of a smiling young Black girl holding a protest sign on Instagram. “I’ve gotten into so many arguments with people when they say ‘all lives matter,’ she captioned the photo. “Ugh it gets me so heated. I hope by posting this you better understand #blacklivesmatter I’m educating myself … please do the same.”
For now, it seems that Bravo isn’t commenting on Kelly‘s past behavior. And with filming slowly resuming on Season 15, the RHOC star has denied being fired from the show. But all I will say is that everyone should have listened to Heather Dubrow. She was right all along.
