Kelly Dodd responds after RHOC star asks the network to fire her
Last week, Bravo fired Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for their racist actions. Since then, Bravo fans and celebrities call for more firings. Tamra Judge demanded the network to fire Kelly Dodd. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum slammed Kelly during an Instagram Q&A on Tuesday, June 16.
Per Us Weekly, 52-year-old revealed if Kelly should get the boot for her “racist statements” from the past. Footage from 2016 showed the reality star saying she didn’t “like” or “know any black guys” while speaking to the paparazzi outside The Nice Guy in Los Angeles.
“Yes, I do that TMZ video is disgusting!” Tamra wrote. “Bravo shouldn’t just single certain people out like Stassi & Kristen. There should be zero tolerance at this point.”
During that time, Kelly apologized for her remarks. She felt “embarrassed” over what she said. The RHOC star also said there was “no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone.” According to Kelly, that video doesn’t “represent” who she is.
But she’s made many offensive remarks since that video surfaced. She even made inappropriate comments about the coronavirus pandemic. Kelly responded to Tamra’s comments. She told an Instagram follower that the RHOC alum is “thirsty and mad she got the bullet.” Kelly ended her statement by adding, “I hope she finds happiness.”
She previously denied the rumors that she lost her orange in the middle of Season 15 production.
Tamra Judge doesn’t understand Kelly’s appeal
The Vena CBD founder doesn’t understand why people love Kelly Dodd, per Us Weekly. Tamra Judge had more to say about her fellow co-star. David Yontef asked Tamra about Kelly’s “appeal” on his podcast, “Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef” podcast. She called Kelly’s comments about the coronavirus “insensitive.”
“You know what? I don’t know. I follow some of the stuff that’s happened recently, and her comments on COVID are so insensitive,” Tamra responded. “Even if she did think that way, you shouldn’t publicly say that because there are a lot of people that are missing their father and their grandfather and their uncle and their aunts and their mothers because they have passed away.”
RHOC fans slammed Kelly back in April when she said that COVID-19 is “God’s way of thinning the herd.” Though she apologized for her comments, she later claimed that “no one is dying” from the disease in Orange County as businesses reopened.
Tamra reveals what Kelly’s really like behind the scenes
During the interview, Tamra shared her experience filming with Kelly on the series. She said that the television personality “put s*** out there that’s not true,” which she found “devastating.” Tamra also hinted that Kelly’s polarizing character caused tension among the cast.
“There’s just certain things that you just don’t do,” Tamra explained. “Like, you don’t go after someone’s kids. You don’t go after someone’s livelihood. There’s no limits with that girl and it’s just really hard to [deal] with someone like that, because nobody on the show can be authentic because everybody’s afraid of her.”
Tamra and Kelly first feuded while filming Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2019. Earlier this year, Tamra announced her exit from the franchise. She was offered a friend role, which she declined.
