Kelly Dodd Clarifies “Anti-American” Jab At Andy Cohen And Explains Why She Yelled “I’m Black” At ‘RHOC’ Season 15 Reunion!

Kelly Dodd is clarifying the political comment she made about Andy Cohen during part one of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, which aired on Wednesday, January 20.

Dodd says she "didn't mean" to make the tense conversation about Trump, she was just trying to make a point about social media haters.

"I'm a Libertarian, I didn't vote for Trump. I'm not a Trumper at all," she told E! News. "But I am a Libertarian so I do have conservative views on things but I am socially liberal. I believe in gay rights, I believe in abortion."

"My point with Andy was that you can always find negative comments on social media. Some people with zero posts and zero followers comment, but the vast majority of comments about me are positive," Dodd explained. "My point wasn't always to find negative comments about me, but I was saying you can find negative comments about him, you can find negative comments about you."

If you recall, the dramatic exchange happened while Cohen called out Dodd about her past controversial comments on the coronavirus pandemic.

"I mean, the amount of messages that I get that you're uneducated, you're putting out misinformation, you're behaving like a moron," Cohen said before Dodd fired back, "I get them too, saying that you're anti-American. That you put your political beliefs out there, that they don't want to watch a political show."

Cohen replied, "I'm anti-American because I don't like Donald Trump?" and Dodd confirmed, "Yeah."

Dodd explains why she doesn't regret bringing up the "anti-American" comment at the reunion.

"No because he was talking about how people were coming after me. People come at me and tell me bad things about him all the time, it doesn't mean it's gospel," she shared. "We all get things that are negative comments. And my point was that just because people come to me and say he's anti-American doesn't mean he is. You know he had Meghan McCain on there who is Republican, he supports the troops."

She added, "It's not that he's anti-American, I don't think he's anti-American at all. But I get people that DM me that say that, doesn't mean it's true. That's what I meant."

Kelly also addressed the "I'm Black" statement, which was shown at the teaser for Part 2 of RHOC Season 15 reunion.

In the preview, Shannon Beador claims she was called a "racist" and a "homophobe" by another cast member. Kelly, who has previously identified as being part Mexican, then yells "I'm Black!"

Sow why did Kelly claimed that she was black? "So we have Braunwyn who is blond haired, blue eyes, as white as can be," Kelly told E! News. "She's always saying that I'm a racist or a homophobe and it really irritates me. So I did a 23andMe and I don't identify myself as a Black person, that was not my point. My point was I'm Black, Asian, Mexican, Spanish, I'm 30% Native American and I'm one percent Jewish. And I'm all races."

She added, "I don't see people with color, I see people. That's it."
