Kelly Dodd Says She’s ‘Experienced Racism Personally’ As A ‘Woman of Color’

Kelly Dodd opened up about her experience with racism following her resurfaced controversial statements she made about Black men. The Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed via Instagram on Saturday, June 20, that she’s been a victim of racist behavior as a Mexican American, according to Us Weekly.

When a fan asked Dodd, “But, like, do you truly believe that because ‘You’re Mexican you can’t be racist’?”

She replied, “I’ve experienced racism personally … I’m a woman of color and love everyone!”

Dodd recently came under fire after a 2016 TMZ video resurfaced of her saying that she didn’t “like” or “know any Black guys” while being filmed outside of The Nice Guy restaurant in Los Angeles.

She later apologized for her comments in a statement to TMZ. “I am truly embarrassed. There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone,” she said at the time. “That video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly.”

Tamra Judge recently during an Instagram Q&A on Tuesday, June 16 that she thinks Bravo should fire Dodd over the past racist remarks.

“Yes I do, that TMZ video is disgusting!” Judge said after a fan asked her to share her thoughts on Dodd's resurfaced TMZ video. “Bravo shouldn’t just single certain people out like Stassi [Schroeder] & Kristen [Doute]. There should be zero tolerance at this point.”

Dodd clapped back at Judge via Instagram. “She’s just thirsty and mad she got the bullet .. grasping for straws poor thing .. I hope she finds happiness,” Dodd wrote.
