‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ Spoilers: Tamra Judge Does Not Believe Kelly Dodd Has Been Fired From The Show
In an interview with Us Weekly, she dismissed the idea of Kelly being axed. She said: “I will believe that when I see that. I am very confused [about] what Bravo is thinking nowadays and what they think is good TV and who they think is a good cast member. I certainly know that she has rocked the boat many times when I was on the show, but I kind of feel like Kelly’s a tough one, and everything just slides off of her. There’s never really been any real punishment for the things that she has done.”
So where did the rumours come from? Well, the rumours of her departure may have been started by Vicki Gunvalson. In response, Kelly denied the rumours: “No, I am not fired !!! Contacts [sic] haven’t come out yet! Vicki stop being a hater.” Nevertheless, some ramifications have already begun after Kelly’s working relationship with Positive Beverage ended, in light of her recent controversial comments on covid.
The CEO ,Zach Muchnick, of the company released the following statement: “Today was a rough day: our stakeholder, Kelly Dodd, was distanced from our company as an ambassador of the brand after the recent weeks and days of social media presence, indicating her opinions about people and the pandemic. Unfortunately, these values weren’t aligned with our tone and priorities of inclusion, diversity, wellness and health within every pillar of daily life.
“While she remains a minority shareholder in the company, we made the decision today to formally sever ties with her endorsement and likeness with our brand, so that we can continue our charge to spread good vibes and healthy hydration to everyone!” [Her comments] weren’t aligned with our tone and priorities.”
So what were the comments in question? Kelly was accused of ridiculing the covid guidelines with a video on Instagram with the following comments: “I’m not a super spreader because there’s nothing to spread. We all got the vaccine, and we don’t have it, so there’s nothing to spread about superspreaders.”
With the controversy failing to die down, we will have to see what the future holds for Kelly.
