While Kelly Dodd had a shaky start on Real Housewives of Orange County, she provided fans with plenty of moments that motivated us to root for her. However, it’s just tough to do that lately with all of her coronavirus-related commentary. She said that coronavirus is God’s way of thinning the herd. She also “joked” that people are going to die anyway. And then there was that gathering with her RHOC co-stars Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. They wore face masks, one that ironically said “6 feet apart.” However, they got in such close proximity to each other for some selfies. They did not seem to be taking the shelter in place order seriously. At all.
Additionally, Kelly has been traveling back and forth from California to New York City, where her fiance Rick Leventhal lives. As an outsider, it’s hard not to have opinions about Kelly’s comments and behavior in relation to the coronavirus. Now, she has even more to say.
Remember when Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd was raising hell by calling co-star Vicki Gunvalson names? Or when she rang Shannon Beador’s bell by hitting a metal bowl on Shannon’s head with a mallet?
Kelly’s RHOC antics were annoying and inappropriate, but Kelly’s latest comments about the coronavirus outbreak are shocking and callous. Kelly doesn’t seem capable of zipping her lip.
Some of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members caused some controversy when they posted photos hanging out during the coronavirus pandemic in the midst of a stay-at-home order in California. Yes, they wore face masks, covering their mouths and noses. Yes, they seemingly had less than ten people with them. But, nevertheless, a lot of people were outraged when they reunited and took a selfie, mere inches from each other’s faces.
This was probably the one time Gina Kirschenheiter was actually happy to be excluded. Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Emily Simpson were present for the coronavirus gathering. Even
recently fired Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge commented with a face palm emoji. She’s not the only one throwing some shade though.
Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
As far as we know, Tamra Judge isn’t come back to Real Housewives of Orange County. That hasn’t stopped her from keeping herself in the limelight as of late. She’s come out swinging against former cast mate, Shannon Beador after she made up with Kelly Dodd. Then Tamra confirmed she is no longer friends with Shannon after Shannon ignored her phone calls. Lol on that one. I don’t blame Shannon at all after seeing last season. Tamra also moved AGAIN, this time ditching the $2M Coto de Caza property she was showing off on the show. Remember her bragging about that country club and golf course? She can kiss that goodbye now that she’s headed back to a property that was a significant downgrade in price.
Aside from keeping the gossip sites alive and well, Tamra is also busy with her side hustles. We know very little about her budding (pun intended) CBD business venture, Vena. While there is still have a website, we haven’t heard anything else about Vena since she brought it up on the show. Shocker, right? Tamra also recently said on an Instagram “Ask Me Anything” that she was interested in opening a home store. We’ve all seen her collection of Mackenzie-Childs kitchenware and can find that without Tamra’s help, thanks. But Tamra’s bread and butter for the longest has been CUT Fitness, a gym she opened with husband, Eddie Judge back in 2013. We saw plenty of the gym when Tamra opened it and many a scene on RHOC was filmed there. Now there are some rumors that this is the end of CUT Fitness.
Grab your oranges because The Real Housewives of Orange County are in some seriously hot water. On Monday (May 4), Kelly Dodd took to social media to share a picture of herself hanging out with Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke…in the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Needless to say, fans didn’t take to0 kindly to the RHOC stars utter disregard for social distancing directives in a time when most everyone around the country is doing their best to stay home for the sake of public health, and outrage spread faster than you can scream “I have never been with multiple partners in my life!”
Housewives friendships seem to have a different set of rules than regular ones. The ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County have more ups and downs than a roller coaster. Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador are they three best friends of Orange County.
The Tres Amigas (Tamra, Vicki, and Shannon) have been through everything together. From uncomfortable dinner parties to divorces and even death. With all of that, they have still managed to come back together for each other when it matters. With Tamra and Vicki not returning for the upcoming season, the ladies may be going their separate ways.
Real Housewives of Orange County fans were shocked, and some were pleased, when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted for Season 14. After having the mother of all meltdowns during the RHOC reunion, Vicki and her bestie Tamra Judge were offered part-time contracts for the upcoming season. In January, the former Tres Amigas decided to quit.
So, what has Vicki been up to? Vicki is filming a new reality show with Tamra. She also has her own podcast, Whoop It Up with Vicki. And Vicki never weighs in on Housewives drama. Just ask former friend Shannon Beador. Vicki unfollowed Shannon on Instagram because Shannon made amends with Vicki’s nemesis, Kelly Dodd.
