Barbara Kavovit Tested Positive For COVID-19 Despite Being Fully Vaccinated

If you blinked, you might have missed Barbara Kavovit’s short run on the Real Housewives of New York during Season 11. She came in as a friend of Luann de Lesseps, which didn’t last long once she started bashing the Countess by saying she couldn’t sing. Some would argue that’s exactly what real friends are for. However, when it comes to Lu and her cabaret, getting in the middle of that is a death sentence for any friendship. Since then, Lu’s best friend has been Jovani, with Ramona Singer coming in a not-so-close second.

Barb The Builder wasn’t the best fit for RHONY, considering she really didn’t get too involved in the drama. Also, she didn’t really have the most natural chemistry with the ladies, particularly Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley. Following her short reality TV run, Barb made a run at becoming the mayor of New York City. However, she dropped out of the race, showing that Miss Morgan’s voting power might carry more weight than everyone thought.

Barbara recently took to Twitter to announce some bad news to the public — she tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated. She posted a PSA from Barbara K to warn people that you still can get coronavirus even if you’re vaccinated.

She added that she completed her two doses of the Pfizer vaccine back in April, and still caught the virus. “I did not travel at all. But I just want you guys to know that this Delta variant is real. Do not let your guard down. This shit is real as it gets,” she said in the video. Even though Barb isn’t destined to be mayor of NYC at this time, she still has a duty to protect the people.

Barbara added that her symptoms include fever, chills, and fatigue, which seems to be common among those who test positive. “If you feel sick, go get tested,” she added. “Again, please be safe. Take care of yourself. Masks, social distancing and maybe we should go back to following COVID protocol.”

She promises to keep her followers updated on her symptoms and quarantine plans as she rides out the virus. And, of course, we wish her a full and speedy recovery from the virus.
