‘RHOC’ Star Kelly Dodd Getting Fired By Bravo? Petition Gains Steam After Dodd Fat-Shames Fan

Is Kelly Dodd in danger of getting fired by Bravo? The polarizing newcomer of The Real Housewives of Orange County crossed a line with some fans when she fat-shamed a woman on Instagram. She took it a step further by going to the woman’s Instagram account to criticize her weight and how embarrassed she is going to be by her.

According to The Real Mr. Housewife, Kelly Dodd wrote an offensive message on her Instagram to a fan who wrote something she didn’t like.

Dodd wrote, “Maybe try losing some weight because your kid is going to be ashamed that you’re a pig!! Get off my page you pig!”

What’s more, Kelly went to @chellbell1973’s personal Instagram account page to make a disparaging comment about the woman and her daughter.

“Put the fork down!! You’re kid is going to be embarrassed by you!!”

According to several tweets that Kelly Dodd is responding to, she tells fans that the woman attacked her husband and daughter.

Dodd writes in one response, “When ppl attack my husband & kid! I can’t say anything?? That girl shamed my family! I can’t say the same thing bk?”

Several fans proceeded to encourage Dodd to go silent and not react to the trolls. She acknowledged their suggestions by responding with “sage advice” and that one of them was “right.” Another person suggested Kelly disable her comments on Instagram.

In September, it was revealed that Kelly sent a private Facebook message to another fan telling her to get a nose job. The fan responded by calling her a “real girls’ girl” and that her automatic response to defending herself on anything is to attack another person’s looks. She added that once her time is up as a reality TV star she’ll only be remembered as a “joke” like so many others are.

The petition titled, “Remove Kelly Dodd from RHOC,” was started and has 1,562 of the 2,500 signatures needed.

“Kelly Dodd is out to make everyone feel terrible. She fat shames women, puts women down, causes drama etc.,” the petition reads. “She is not someone any young women in our country should be looking up to. She get joy out of making people feel bad about themselves and she sees nothing wrong with the way she acts. I am starting this petition in hopes that Bravo will remove her from this show.”

As fans have witnessed on RHOC, Kelly Dodd gets feisty when she feels wronged or targeted. This appears to be the case with the fan she went after. According to a tweet Kelly wrote on Wednesday, she makes no apologies for pushing back when she feels attacked on social media.

The above tweet was in reference to the fat-shaming incident, Dodd confirmed. She was fired up over the fan’s message that involved her family, which was understandable if she read something negative. Perhaps jumping on the fan’s personal Instagram account and writing such an incendiary message back wasn’t the best way for her to handle the situation. Kelly Dodd is a celebrity and agreed to have her life on public display when she signed on with The Real Housewives of Orange County. Unfortunately, personal attacks from fans come with the territory.

Will Bravo fire Kelly Dodd from RHOC over her social media outbursts towards fans?
