Kelly Dodd The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki Gunvalson Dubs New RHOC Star Elizabeth Vargas An ‘Idiot’ for Defending Kelly Dodd

The OG of the OC is chiming in, and she’s not holding back!

Vicki Gunvalson may be done with the Real Housewives of Orange County, but that’s not stopping her from commenting on the franchise’s current cast and their drama.

On Instagram, RHOC newbie Elizabeth Lyn Vargas defended co-star and friend Kelly Dodd. This stems from the backlash Kelly continues to receive due to her behavior during the ongoing pandemic.

Over the last few months, RHOC fans have called Kelly out for pushing conspiracy theories about COVID19 on social media. They have also criticized her for constantly traveling, not wearing a mask, not practicing social distancing.

After months and months of backlash, Elizabeth came to Kelly’s defense on Instagram.

“Everyone has an opinion, and frankly, I’m disappointed in the fact that no one understands Kelly, which is fine,” the RHOC newbie said on an Instagram video. “Kelly has her own point of view. Why are you judging her? Why? We all have our opinions. Why are you judging her for hers?”

She also wondered why fans continue to “judge” Kelly for simply voicing her own opinions.

Not surprisingly, Vicki had a response to Elizabeth’s defense of Kelly.

“Idiot,” Vicki commented, according to a screenshot on the Comments By Bravo Instagram page.
