Kelly Dodd Is “Expecting To Be Fired” From ‘The Real Housewives Of Orange County’; “She Knows It’s Coming,” Sources Say!

Kelly Dodd is reportedly expecting to be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Dodd is "expecting to be fired from the show, a source told E! News, noting "nothing has been confirmed" just yet.

"Although she would love to stay on the show, she has come to terms with it," the source continued. "She knows it's coming."

The mother-of-one has faced backlash for her recent controversial comments, including those about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

The source continued, "Kelly stands by her opinions and thinks the show is favoring the other ladies," specifically Braunwyn Windham-Burke. According to the insider, Dodd "feels she is definitely being pushed out."

A Bravo rep told E! News that the network has made no casting decisions yet.

The news comes after Kelly was fired by the Positive Beverage company for seemingly mocking restrictions imposed by a California restaurant to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Dodd was criticized for sharing several videos on Instagram on Saturday, January 30, that showed her dining out with friends in California while not wearing a mask and mocking the restrictions imposed to stop the spread of the pandemic.

In one clip she shouted “Cheers!” in a toast as someone yelled out “to superspreaders,” and one of her friends fake coughed after shouting, “Spread that s—t.”

Dodd later shared a video defending herself on her Instagram Story. “I’m not a superspreader because there’s nothing to spread,” she said in the clip. “We all got the vaccine and we don’t have it, so there’s nothing to spread about superspreaders.”

“The sheeple are mad,” she added.

Positive Beverage’s founder and CEO Zach Muchnick confirmed that the brand no longer wants to be affiliated with Dodd.

“Today was a rough day: our stakeholder, Kelly Dodd, was distanced from our company as an ambassador of the brand after the recent weeks and days of social media presence, indicating her opinions about people and the pandemic,” he said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Unfortunately, these values weren’t aligned with our tone and priorities of inclusion, diversity, wellness and health within every pillar of daily life. While she remains a minority shareholder in the company, we made the decision today to formally sever ties with her endorsement and likeness with our brand, so that we can continue our charge to spread good vibes and healthy hydration to everyone!”

But a separate source close to Kelly told E! News she did not get the vaccine despite claiming otherwise. Meanwhile, Dodd reignited speculation that she wouldn’t be back for season 16 days after she shut down reports that she was fired. She raised eyebrows over the weekend after she updated her Instagram bio to read: “Proud veteran castmember of #RHOC.”
