Kelly’s behavior left a bad taste in many Real Housewives of Orange County fans mouths, forcing them to boycott season 15 altogether.
Kelly’s RHOC co-star Gina Kirschenheiter addresses the boycott in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I do think that if somebody really has been offended and feels that they’ve been victimized by something that she’s said, I understand if they want to take a stand and they don’t want to watch,” Gina tells ET. “She just can’t get out of her own way. I don’t agree with any of it; I don’t like any of it.”
However, Gina doesn’t think fans should boycott the season altogether; instead, she suggests fans “fast forward through” Kelly’s parts on the show.
She points out that RHOC comprises 5 other women with “very important things happening” that fans should see.
Gina then went on to say that Kelly says things for the sake of saying them. Adding that she wants to “believe” Kelly “doesn’t mean a lot of the stupid things she says.”
“She’ll say anything for the joke,” Gina added, “but she doesn’t understand she’s not a comedian, she’s just on a show where she’s just a public figure, and so, it’s hard because I want to believe that she doesn’t mean a lot of the stupid things that she says, but she says them.”
Season 15 of RHOC airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c.
