Kelly Dodd Says The Public Apology She Made To Heather Dubrow Was “Heartfelt And Legitimate”

Kelly Dodd maintains that the public apology she made to her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Heather Dubrow was “heartfelt and legitimate.”

In the comment section via Dodd's Instagram, a fan accused her of making a “fake and condescending” apology to the Dubrow family.

The user wrote, “Why did you have to sound so FAKE & CONDESCENDING in your ummm fake apology to the [Dubrow] family? You came off [ridiculous] & hope the [Dubrow] family [pursue] what ever defamation allegations towards you. Come on Kelly…. I thought better of you by now. Ugh.”

To which Dodd replied, “that was a heartfelt and legitimate apology. Thank you.”

Earlier this week, Dodd issued a public apology for claiming that she contracted coronavirus from Dubrow’s 16-year-old son.

“I got this letter from an attorney for the Dubrow family reminding me I made a statement that may sound like truth, when in fact it was a joke and for that, I am offering my sincere apology,” Dodd said via her Instagram Story on Tuesday, July 6, according to Us Weekly.

Kelly previously said that she caught COVID-19 from Heather’s son, Nicholas, 17. However, she revealed on Tuesday that she didn’t mean her statement to be taken seriously.

“I did get COVID at a party New Year’s Eve, and Heather Dubrow’s son and his friends were all there. And while I had information leading us all to believe we could’ve gotten COVID from them, because we all — like, 24 of us — got COVID that night, we obviously have no way of proving or knowing for sure he or his friends were the source of our infection,” she said. “And for that, I apologize. I’m going on the record right now to be very clear: Rick and I don’t know how we caught the virus, and we’re both very very sorry for any trouble we caused the Dubrow family.”

In the video, Kelly is holding up the legal letter which was sent by the L.A. law firm, Russ August & Kabat. The subject line reads, “Defamation of Terry and Heather Dubrow and Family.” According to Radar Online, the letter is dated June 25, only days after Dodd originally made her remarks.

Dodd’s 15-year-old daughter Jolie was also diagnosed with COVID at the end of June.

“My daughter has COVID,” Dodd said in a video on her Instagram Story at the time, showing Jolie sitting at the kitchen counter.

It was unclear whether Jolie has been vaccinated against the virus or not.

“I thought it was over,” she added of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to PEOPLE.

According to data from the New York Times, the virus is still ongoing and has killed more than 601,000 people in the United States alone.
