RHOC Star Kelly Dodd slammed for her Shannon Beador coronavirus response


KELLY Dodd is facing some backlash after she responded to Shannon Beader’s post about her family being coronavirus positive.

It all kicked off when Shannon took to Instagram to reveal that she and her daughters unfortunately tested positive for Covid.

Alongside a snap of her daughters, the Real Housewives of Orange County star wrote: “This photo was taken pre-pandemic. Today, we are Covid positive times 4.

“The girls and I are blessed to be quarantining in the same home (but isolating in separate rooms). A huge thank you to all of the medical personnel that have been patiently guiding us through this illness.

“Sending prayers to all of those affected.”

Kelly, Shannon’s costar on RHOC, responded with: “Your daughters are the best.”

However, fans were not happy as the reality TV star has openly not taken the virus seriously.

One person wrote: “You literally mock the virus and say hospitals lie and skew numbers.

“How many deaths are enough for you to take it seriously?”

Another added: “It’s your fault Kelly, [sic]ppl like you downplaying the severity of this.”

The backlash comes after Kelly, 44, said that the virus was “God’s way of thinning the herd.”

She wrote on Instagram: “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 continued: “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!!”

She added: “Even if I got it I won’t die from it !! Do you people even know the statistics?

“It’s the old or the vulnerable that die from this! 25%. All my friends have had it and recovered!”

After the negative response Kelly was forced to apologize.

She said: “For anybody who felt offended by my stupid writing of God thinning the herd… I am just asking a question.

“Is it God’s way of thinning the herd? I don’t know. I just feel bad and my choice of words were stupid, and I hope you guys can all forgive me for saying something so ridiculous and so stupid.”

Kelly was not out of the woods as RHOC alum Tamra Judge slammed her during an appearance on the podcast Behind The Velvet Rope With David Yontef.

Tamara said: “It’s such an insensitive thing to say, especially with Andy [Cohen] having coronavirus, you’d think you’d be a little smarter than that.

“And I can’t imagine that Bravo is very happy about it at all and I’m sure Rebecca from the PR company and Bravo made her [put out an apology]. She didn’t do that on her own.”

She added: “It’s mind-blowing to me, but like I said, she’s the only housewife in the history that I’ve known who was edited better than she actually is.

“They make her look better than she is. And I feel like she’s a huge liability to the network.”
