Real Housewives Of Orange County Star Kelly Dodd Says Coronavirus Is No Longer A Pandemic

While Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge have been #firedbybravo, Kelly Dodd is proving we can still count on her to be anything but the voice of reason on Real Housewives of Orange County. But if you’re watching RHOC to receive guidance and enlightenment, you might want to rethink your life choices.

Kelly provides the drama and is never at a loss for speaking her mind. She is unfiltered, which makes for great television, but I doubt anyone from MENSA will extend an invite to their club of intellectuals. In the social climate we are currently facing, Kelly has offered some interesting insight to her platform. While coronavirus has impacted nearly every aspect of life, society has adapted and people have made changes to their daily routine in an unselfish effort to control the spread. Thankfully, medical doctor and practicing scientist, Dr. Kelly Dodd, wants you to know that we are no longer in the midst of a worldwide pandemic.

2020 has given us a run for our money. Putting a much-needed focus on racial unrest, we’ve also been gifted with a pandemic that spiraled out of control. Most people have zero issue protecting themselves and their loved ones from contracting coronavirus, but others see it as a marginalized inconvenience or direct attack on their freedom. Kelly just might find herself in the latter category.

We could surmise Kelly has never taken the virus seriously. She has made callous remarks on social media, and fans were less than amused. At one point she posted and deleted a meme that read, “Give me liberty or give me death!!! Unless there’s a virus with a 99% recovery rate in which case strip me of my freedoms, my job, my constitutional rights, and put me under house arrest.” Bless her heart.

It’s just a bad cold, right? Disregard the massive number of deaths. Forget about the kids moved into virtual learning. Ignore those petty signs in front of businesses enforcing face coverings. Why, you might ask? Because Kelly says the medical threat is now over. This woman is about to make me miss Tamra… On Instagram, the always reasonable Kelly made another comment about the virus. iRealHousewives shared the screenshot. Spoiler alert, if you protect yourself and your family from illness, you might be a sheep.

In response to a comment, Kelly wrote, “It’s not a pandemic anymore!! Did you read the CDC numbers!! My platform isn’t to be a sheep my platform is to be an independent thinker!” Cue to me yelling, “baaaaaaaa-baaaaaaa” through my mask like the lamb I am. As of 08 September, 2020, the CDC states active cases are at 6,287,362. It must be reassuring to have so much vast medical knowledge about viruses that you are comfortable telling the public an illness that has killed almost 200,000 (in the United States) is no longer a threat! Viewers were not shy about responding. One person wrote, “Wow!..just wow! The shock after reading that. It’s embarrassing.” Another commenter shared, “I unfollowed her, such a disappointment.” To be fair, Kelly has disappointed before.

Look, we don’t know if Kelly actually tossed her mother down the stairs. And we don’t know if Shannon STORMS Beador received permanent brain damage from Kelly dinging her on the head during a meditation exercise. But I’m pretty sure ‘ol Kel might not be the person to ask for advice on anything medically related. In fact, if it doesn’t have to do with vodka or spending someone else’s money, I’m not sure I would listen to her at all.

TELL US- DOES THIS CHANGE YOUR OPINION OF KELLY? IS THE PANDEMIC OVER? HAS KELLY GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME?
