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

RHOC: Vicki Gunvalson Says She’s ‘Saddened’ To Hear Kelly Dodd’s Mom Is In the ICU With COVID-19; Slams Kelly For ‘Making a Complete Mockery of the Virus’

The OG of the OC is speaking out!

Vicki Gunvalson is weighing in on the news that Kelly Dodd‘s mom, Bobbi Meza, is in the ICU after contracting COVID-19.

As we previously reported, Kelly’s brother, Eric Meza, first broke the news about Bobbi’s condition when he asked for prayers for their mother on social media.

“Prayers for mother, she has COVID-19,” he wrote. Adding that “She’s in [the] ICU.”

Initally, the RHOC star denied there was any truth to her brother’s post, commenting, “Mom has me blocked. JR said she’s not in ICU.” 

Eric replied, “JR doesn’t know sh*t! She is in ICU! I took her!”

She then asked fans to “Please pray for my mom” before later sharing that her mom “will be getting out of ICU soon.” 

“I take COVID seriously,” Kelly insisted before once again slamming the value of wearing face masks, saying, “if your pants can’t contain a fart, you think a strip of fabric can contain a virus.”  

Shortly after the news about Kelly’s mom broke, the OG of the OC spoke with Champion Daily

Not only did Vicki share her well-wishes to Bobbi, but she also aired her frustrations with Kelly’s careless approach to the pandemic.

“While I am saddened to hear of Kelly’s Mom being in the ICU with Covid- and hope she gets a speedy recovery- it would be remiss for anyone to not think about and recall the endless months Kelly has spent making a complete mockery of the virus,” Vicki said. “While everyone is frustrated with the current situation in the world- and understandably so- Kelly has gone above and beyond to completely make a joke out of it- the virus, mask-wearing, the people dying from it, and more. Let us not forget she claimed coronavirus was God’s way of thinning the herd. If she really feels that way, then is her Mom part of the herd God should be thinning? One would think not…”

“However,” Vicki continued, “it’s interesting to note it seems Kelly may not even be in contact with her Mom at this point. An Instagram exchange showed her brother asking for prayers for their Mom in the ICU and Kelly responding that her Mom has her blocked. What this comes down to is Kelly is an absolutely vile person. I, of course, feel empathy for her Mom and anyone else who is dealing with the coronavirus and deeply sick from it. What I don’t feel, though, is any empathy for Kelly. How can I feel bad for her dealing with this horrible situation after she’s made a complete mockery of the virus and, by doing so, the hundreds of thousands of people who have died from it?”

Vicki went on to say, It’s hard to feel bad for her personally- and, again, to be clear, I do feel bad for her Mom- both for having Kelly as a daughter and for having covid. Kelly is a living nightmare who continues to make reckless comments with no regard for the impact her words may have. While I continue to be surprised Bravo would continue to endorse her behavior- especially given all of the fan pushback on social media regarding the horrendous things she’s said- time will tell if she will remain on the show or not.”

“With that being said, I wish Kelly’s Mom a speedy recovery and hope she does get out of the ICU and regain her health. Hopefully, with this going on, Kelly will have a change of heart with her response to the virus and how she treats people,” she concluded.

“Knowing her as long as I have, though,” Vicki added, “I highly doubt this will impact her to be a better person. Some people’s hearts are just too dark to ever let in the light.”

Season 15 of RHOC airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c.

Thoughts on Vicki’s statement? Do you think Kelly will change after this? Will she take COVID more seriously now? Sound off below!
