REAL Housewives Of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd admitted she “could” be fired from show after she was accused of mocking Black Lives Matter and Covid.
The 45-year-old was slammed last year for wearing a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat – before alleging that coronavirus is “God’s way of thinning the herd.”

Amid Kelly’s controversial actions, one fan asked her on Instagram: “Please tell me you’re coming back? That the rumor isn’t true… you can’t be canned. You’re my [favorite] housewife.”
She replied: “That rumor is every single year. It could be true.”
The Bravo star then exclaimed “Exactly!” in response to a fan who wrote: “Who cares how many trips you had taken? It’s your business and your life.”
And when another fan claimed “masks don’t work” and are used to promote “fear and control”, Kelly replied with three red heart emojis.
Kelly sparked outrage in April last year when she insisted that people who died from Covid would have “died anyway” with or without the virus.
She made the insensitive remarks in her Instagram comments after fans called her out for flying from New York to California – something she documented on her Stories – despite quarantine guidelines.
She said: “If it’s dangerous why are the airlines still flying. You think I want to fly? I had to get back how is that elitist??
“People are so judgmental it’s sick!! That many die anyway!! They would’ve died this year they were compromised !!”
Kelly went on: “Do you know how many people died from the h1n1 the swine flu or SARS??
“It’s 25 per cent get your facts straight you are only hearing numbers not the reality!! It’s God’s way of thinning the herd!!
“If you are vulnerable or compromised stay inside if you don’t protect others by wearings masks and gloves keep your distance and don’t go out if you are ill!! It’s common sense.”
She later claimed that Covid was like the flu while refusing to wear a mask.
Last month, Kelly apologized for her comments and called it “one of the stupidest things” she’s ever said.
Meanwhile, back in October, she faced backlash for wearing a novelty hat that read “Drunk Wives Matter” – a play on the Black Lives Matter movement – to a bridal shower.
“It’s really sad to see you in that hat, so insensitive,” shared one critic.
Another wrote, “That hat is a bit insensitive but okay,” while a third added: “Kelly your hat is not funny.”
There was further trouble last week, when RHOC fans called for Kelly to be fired from the Bravo franchise after she called Andy Cohen “anti-American” for not supporting Donald Trump.
Andy claimed that he was getting messages saying that Kelly “was uneducated, putting out misinformation, and behaving like a moron” because she wants businesses to open up despite the increasing cases of Covid.
Kelly – who admitted to getting a facelift before the reunion – hit back: “I get them too, saying that you’re Anti-American, that you put your political beliefs out there, that they don’t want to watch a political show.”
Andy then questioned Kelly, saying: “I’m Anti-American because I don’t like Donald Trump?”
Kelly replied: “I get a ton of those, yeah!”
Andy was specifically talking about the fan hate that Kelly received after she traveled to New York City and partied at the beginning of the pandemic.
