The drama follows Vicki Gunvalson and Lisa Vanderpump even though they aren’t on Real Housewives anymore!
The OG of the OC’s fiancé Steve Lodge went after the Pump Rules star amid his run for Governor of California. He is currently one of many Republican gubernatorial candidates.
Steve slammed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum after LVP’s TomTom Restaurant & Bar in West Hollywood announced it would require patrons to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test before they can enter the establishment.
“Whatever happened to the right of privacy of your health records?” Steve asked in a video on Instagram. “I guess someone forgot to tell them that vaccinated people can also spread and get COVID.”
He then listed off several “other contagious viruses,” including the flu, Ebola, hepatitis A and B, rabies, and measles, before noting, “This is not a decision that they made in science but rather fear.”
Steve then suggested people “spend their restaurant dollars elsewhere.”
He captioned the post, “Restaurants that are requiring vaccinations and testing are violating the medical privacy of their customers. I don’t see Restaurant’s [sic] requiring disclosure of any of the more dangerous contagious viruses. A vaccination also doesn’t mean you can’t contract or spread the virus, so what’s the point? Is this just theatre? It’s certainly not science. I suppose you can say, her restaurant, her choice. But where does this discrimination stop against a virus with 99.8 percent survival rate? This is a very slippery slope, and we need to stop and use reason and logic, not fear and hysteria.”
Many fans took the comment section of Steve’s post to voice their opinions.
Some fans agreed with Steve’s point of view, commenting, “Thank you, Steve. You got my vote.”
“Will refuse to spend my hard earn money to any of these places that discriminate against me! We need to stand up and not take it anymore!” another supporter said.
However, plenty of people disagreed with Steve’s take.
“You sound ridiculous. We are in a Pandemic with COVID-19. That simple. Educate yourself,” one person commented.
Another added, “Just get the dam vaccine!!! Every business has the right to refuse service. It’s not about your freedom; it’s about protecting others!”
“Steve, I don’t think you understand how science works,” one fan quipped while a different fan wrote, “I’m often in utter amazement at how easily people can confuse notions of freedom with base selfishness. Mind-bending trash.”
Lisa has yet to respond to Steve’s comments; however, TomTom said its “priority has always been the protection” of its patrons and employees.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in late 2021 or early 2022.
