The multiverse that is the Bravo network features a lot of stars with a whole lot of drama. It isn't too often, though, that the stars and the drama within the network cross show lines. That was until Real Housewives of Orange County's Kelly Dodd came to prominence. A legal snafu occurred between Dodd and Real Housewives alum Heather Dubrow over accusations of COVID-19 infections and, now Below Deck’s Heather Ferrier has entered the fray with some seriously blunt thoughts on their feud.
First, let's back up a bit. The Real Housewives of Orange County's Kelly Dodd claimed that Heather Dubrow’s son infected Dodd and her husband, along with several others, with COVID-19 back in January. Dubrow apparently took the allegations very seriously. According to Dodd on her Instagram, she was sent a letter from Dubrow’s attorney to apologize, which she did (albeit a little sarcastically). However, the drama wasn't done quite yet as Below Deck Mediterranean star Hannah Ferrier decided to voice her opinion in the comments of the circulated Instagram post, saying:
If you went to a NYE party with 30+ people then you gave yourself covid you fucking moron
There are a lot of variables going on besides Hannah Ferrier’s commentary. Kelly Dodd faced heavy backlash last year due to her comments, in which she questioned mask usage and said COVID-19 was “God's way of thinning the herd.” Many speculated at the time that she would be fired from the Real Housewives of Orange County, which she ultimately was – and replaced by none other than series alum Heather Dubrow.
Whether she's on or off The Real Housewives of Orange County though, Kelly Dodd still manages to juggle multiple feuds with other housewives. Earlier this year, she got into a back and forth with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump over alleged dining and dashing. But more recently, she complained about another housewife, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and said she was the reason they were both fired from their show. In response, Windham-Burke said on the S’More Live Happy Hour:
At this point, everything that comes out of her mouth just gets more and more crazy…It is what it is. Honestly, I find it more humorous than anything else.
Along with a bunch of Real Housewives alums and one Below Deck star, Kelly Dodd also had beef with another show on the Bravo network, namely Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi from Shahs of Sunset. Dodd apparently said she didn't know who GG was when asked. As the situation escalated, GG bluntly wrote on Instagram:
I would've thought getting fired for being a racist would've been a big enough lesson but I forgot we're talking about a privileged person that doesn't need to change their ways. You are a bona-fide bully Ms. Dodd. I am so glad for your departure because when Bravo decided to create the first ever show about Middle Easterns on an American network called Shahs of Sunset, and the many other shows about different cultures, they also said f*ck you to racism and the people whose souls are tainted, so good riddance.
There's never a moment without drama as far as Bravo stars are concerned. As for Kelly Dodd, it might be for the best that she's no longer on the Real Housewives of Orange County and can weather her multiple feuds outside the view of the camera – if she wanted to.
