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 Bravo universe has imploded over the last couple of weeks. The network has protected certain Bravolebrities for far too long, and finally higher-ups have taken action, firing a bunch of people who shouldn’t have had access to a huge platform in the first place. Now that Bravo has made some progressive movement, fans are calling for a host of other people to get the boot.
One such person is Real Housewives of Orange County mess star Kelly Dodd. Kelly has a history of saying questionable, even scary things. Her true colors really started to show in Season 11, when she told Heather Dubrow to have a sense of humor because Heather is Jewish. When the women called her out, she rationalized that she’s Mexican, and therefore can’t be racist. Her statements have rarely been based on logic or concrete facts. The problem with this is that she has a powerful following across social media sites – and of course RHOC – to share these “alternative facts.”
Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd has faced a lot of backlash for her ignorant comments about the coronavirus. She described coronavirus as “God’s way of thinning the herd.” Kelly and some other Housewives were criticized for hanging out in such close proximity to take selfies during the pandemic. She claimed that “no one is dying from coronavirus in Orange County.” Kelly apologized for posting memes about coronavirus. She even had the nerve to say that “people are going to die anyway.”
As a result, a lot of people are outraged. Some fans even pressured Bravo to fire Kelly from Real Housewives of Orange County. Now, Bravo OG Patti Stanger is chiming in.
My, how times have changed since the glorious days when Heather Dubrow graced our screens on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Though it’s now been four years since the fancy brunette last held an orange, that doesn’t mean she’s without opinions about the casting
mistakes changes RHOC has subjected fans to since her exit in 2017. In a new interview, Heather offered her take on longtime pals Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge leaving behind the show they made famous ahead of the upcoming season.
Normally, we love to keep things light and make sure our readers are entertained. We know that many people love to escape by reading our website and that’s something we understand. We also know that other times, our readers look to our site for that intersection of reality TV and other important news. Recently, our site has covered different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the global health crisis, there are issues in this country that cannot be ignored. Recently, reality TV stars have been using their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed on May 25 when a policer officer named Derek Chauvin shoved his knee into his neck. George told him, “Please, the knee in my neck, I can’t breathe.” According to CNN, witness Donald Williams told the policeman, “Officer, he’s not resisting arrest, you have your knee on him and you have handcuffs on him, he’s detained at this moment.'”
Over the weekend, some of your favorite reality TV stars attended protests. Others encouraged people to take action and speak up.
Meghan Edmonds and her estranged husband Jim Edmonds are en route to having one of the ugliest divorces in Real Housewives history. First, he was caught sexting illicit photos while the Real Housewives of Orange County star was giving birth to their twin sons. They somehow managed to stay together after that, with both of them insisting he never cheated. Meghan even claimed that he wouldn’t cheat on her with someone who looks “disgusting.”
Then, she accused Jim of having an affair with their nanny. He denied it. His daughter bashed Meghan publicly. He started dating a woman that they had a threesome with. They battled it out when Meghan took their kids out of state during the coronavirus pandemic. Meghan accused him of partying in Nashville mid-pandemic. Jim ended up contracting coronavirus. These two just keep getting nastier and nastier.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd sure has a lot to say about coronavirus these days. Yes, it’s a major topic of conversation right now, but Kelly has offended many people with her remarks. She claimed that coronavirus was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” She apologized, but soon after, Kelly remarked that “people are going to die anyway,” which was rather insensitive.
Kelly and her co-stars faced criticism when they posted selfies they took in the midst of the pandemic. After that, Kelly publicly apologized again after she posted a “joke” about coronavirus. Over the weekend, she claimed that “no one is dying from coronavirus in Orange County.” And in response, some viewers contacted the production company asking for Kelly to get fired.
Kelly Dodd had a tough start on Real Housewives of Orange County, but eventually, she became someone viewers liked to root for. Lately, that’s not really the case. She has made many offensive remarks about the coronavirus pandemic. She’s apologized, but then she just says something else, only to say sorry again. It’s a never-ending cycle.
Some RHOC viewers are so upset that they’re (apparently) reaching out to the production company asking for Kelly to get fired.
