RHOC Newbie Elizabeth Lyn Vargas Comes To Kelly Dodd’s Defense Over Backlash For COVID-19 Comments, Vicki Gunvalson Weighs In And Calls Elizabeth An “Idiot” For Defending Kelly!

Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is coming to Kelly Dodd's defense after the controversial Real Housewives of Orange County star received backlash on social media for her COVID-19 comments. 

“Everybody has an opinion, and frankly … I’m disappointed in the fact that no one understands Kelly which is…fine,” Elizabeth began in the video, according to a report by Reality Blurb. “Kelly has her own point of view. Why are you judging her? We all have our opinions; why are you judging her for hers?”

Vicki Gunvalson, who is not in a good place with Dodd commented on the post, which was captured and shared by Comments By Bravo. The OG of the OC simply responded by saying, “Idiot,” slamming the newcomer.

Dodd first came under fire in April when she claimed the coronavirus pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” However, she quickly apologized, saying, “That’s not what I meant.”

“I’m not insensitive,” she said at the time. “I feel bad for all the families that lost loved ones, and I do think that we should all stay home and protect everybody. That’s not what I meant, and I want to apologize to anyone who got offended, OK? I’m sorry.”

In May, Dodd apologized again for another insensitive comment she made about the pandemic.

“I’m so sorry if I offended anyone regarding the Coronavirus. Like millions of Americans, I’m frustrated and longing for the way things were but I absolutely empathize with those who’ve lost loved ones..,” she tweeted.

The Bravo reality star’s apology comes after footage from an Instagram live featuring Kelly surfaced. During the chat, a friend of the RHOC star told her, “It’s more every day. In New York, we’re down to 250 [deaths] a day.”

Dodd then compared coronavirus to “the flu” and added, “But how many people die on a daily basis? … Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”
