Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd has been busy offending people near and far with her tone-deaf comments about the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. In May of 2020, Kelly commented on the Covid-19 pandemic by comparing it to “the flu.” Kelly stated on Instagram, “Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.” Her comments just boggle my mind.
Back in April, Kelly again took to Instagram to inform the world that coronavirus is “God’s way of thinning the herd!” Dr. Dodd once again apologized, but the damage was done.
In an Instagram Story in October, Kelly sported a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat at her bridal shower. As if mocking the Black Lives Matter movement wasn’t bad enough, Kelly posted a video in her Instagram Story where she doubled down. Kelly and a friend slurred that it was a joke, and that “Drunk wives matter…they kinda do.” The RHOC star added, “You know what, all lives matter.”
Kelly later took to Instagram again to issue another apology about the hat incident and stated, “It was not intended to offend or make any kind of statement. Of course, I support black lives and racial equality.” Sure thing, Kelly.
RHOC fans tried to get Kelly fired, but she is still on the show, wreaking havoc. Other fans have threatened to boycott the show.
Now it’s time to break out the champs because “Fancy Pants” Heather Dubrow is weighing in on Kelly’s behavior. Daily Mail reported that Heather discussed Kelly and the current cancel culture in an interview on the Poplitically Incorrect podcast.

The interviewer pointed out that Kelly made racially insensitive comments in the past, and that Heather called her out. Heather replied, “I don’t harbour any ill will. I don’t want to be friends, but I have… nothing.”
Heather, who left RHOC after Season 11 in 2017, understands why viewers are unhappy with Kelly’s behavior. Heather explained, “But, I think that in these days and times, talking about the boycott, if you don’t believe in the Black Lives Matter movement, if you’re gonna be against this, if you’re not gonna understand where we are in our world today and what humans need, you’re not human.” That makes perfect sense.
“And I think in those circumstances, you can understand why someone would be cancelled,” the actress and author added. Generally speaking, Heather is “not a big fan of cancel culture.” She continued, “I think we have to be careful with it because…you know…you don’t want to start throwing wider nets and wider nets, and accusations lead to good people getting hurt.”
It’s clear that Heather feels that Kelly has pole-vaulted over the line. “But when it’s so obvious…and things are so obvious, as we’ve seen over the last several months…there’s not a gray area,” Heather said. “When someone is behaving a certain way, they get cancelled.”

These days Heather has her own popular podcast, Heather Dubrow’s World, and a skin care line. Heather recently revealed that she and her favorite co-star, husband Dr. Terry Dubrow, are executive producing a new series that is now casting. We don’t know much about it, other than it will give some type of a relationship makeover to couples.
