The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Kelly Dodd Forced to Apologize After Claiming Heather and Terry Dubrow’s Son Gave her and hubby Rick Leventhal COVID

Sorry, not sorry!

Kelly Dodd is apologizing, but she’s clearly not that sorry for her latest blunder.

On Tuesday, Kelly posted an apology video on her Instagram Story after claiming that Heather and Terry Dubrow’s 16-year-old son, Nicholas Dubrow gave her and hubby Rick Leventhal COVID on New Year’s Eve.

In late June, Kelly revealed that her daughter Jolie Dodd caught COVID-19. Around this same time, Kelly and Rick got vaccinated. While doing so, they revealed they have “antibodies” after getting COVID in January 2021.

“We got COVID on New Year’s,” Kelly quipped. “Heather Dubrow’s son gave it to us.”

Fast forward to a few weeks later, and now the former Real Housewives of Orange County star is backtracking on her comments.

This “apology” came after the Dubrow family’s lawyer sent Kelly a letter encouraging her to retract her recent comments.

Kelly offered her “sincere apology” to the Dubrow family in the video, but her tone said otherwise.

She also insisted the claim was a “joke” before noting that Heather’s son and his friends were at the party and that she had “information leading us all to believe we could have gotten COVID from them.” 

“We obviously have no way of proving or knowing for sure he or his friends were the source of our infection, and for that, I apologize,” she continued. “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. We hope you can accept our sincere apology.”

RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
