Kelly Dodd is coming after the Dubrows.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum and her husband, Rick Leventhal, came out swinging against Heather and Terry Dubrow on Monday just days after they announced their youngest son, Ace, formerly Collette, is transgender.
The couple announced this news on Instagram for International Sons Day.
It’s International sons day! We love you, our youngest son, Ace. Our job as parents is to give our kids a safe and supportive environment so they can grow up as healthy, happy, confident, independent humans. Since Ace is a 12-year-old child with a long life ahead of him – we will let him tell his own story someday if he chooses to do so. All we can say is, Ace, we love you so much, and we are proud to be your parents. Your brother and sisters love and support you too.
Well, Kelly and Rick took issue with Heather’s post announcing her 12-year-old son is transgender. On the Monday, March 6 episode of their Daily Smash podcast, Kelly and Rick slammed the Dubrows, calling them “famewhores” who are engaging in “child abuse.”
“Why are you announcing to the world that your 12-year-old daughter wants to be a boy now?” Rick quipped, to which Kelly added: “Yeah. Why are you? Then she’s over here saying she’ll talk to the world when she’s ready. Aren’t you the parent? I mean, obviously not because a 12-year-old can make their own decisions.”
Rick continued, “Not for nothing. But do you really think a 12-year-old should be making decisions about the rest of their life?’
The former Bravoleb agreed, saying, “That is a private family matter that you should have with your 12-year-old daughter.”
She went on to ask: “How many of you think, raise your hand if you think a 12-year-old is capable of making decisions about the rest of their life at 12. A 12-year-old making decisions about the rest of their life. Yes or no?”
“[If] this girl wants to be a boy. Be a boy. If you wanna do whatever you wanna do, that’s fine. But a 12-year-old doesn’t get to call the shots. And I think Heather Dubrow is probably the worst parent on earth to be coming out exploiting her daughter. She sucks so bad in the ratings last year that she is putting this on the show so she can have that woke little mob,” Kelly said.
“But you can go ahead and call yourself a boy name and dress as a boy. But you know, I’m, I’m not putting you on drugs at 12. I’m not blocking your puberty. I’m not gonna alter your body chemistry until you’re old enough to really make these decisions,” Rick noted.
“I find that child ab%se,” Kelly claimed.
Then Kelly went on to mock Ace’s choice of a name before saying Heather and Terry are only going along with this because they want the attention that comes with it.
“First of all, if my daughter came up to me and said she wanted to be a boy, I could probably understand that. But if she said her she wanted to be called named Ace, I’d be like, no. No girl. You are not naming yourself a dog name. Okay? There’s no way you are naming yourself a dog name Ace. I would’ve put a kibosh to the Ace,” Kelly quipped.
“They want attention,” Kelly says of Heather and Terry. “They’re famewhores; the girl couldn’t make it as an actress. She has to be famous. She has to be on these things. And everybody that when she came back this year, she’s getting beat up hard. And it was is everybody was saying it was sad to see what you heard. It’s really sad to see.”
“During the filming of this upcoming season, she gets ganged up on, beat up on. They hired Tamra [Judge] to do this job for her. [The show] is fake. If it would’ve been me, I would’ve been real. But they have to have this woke chick that can’t work with the real one. Shannon [Beador] told me about how [Tamra was] beating up on her, and then she’s over here at Bravo Con kissing [Heather] on the cheek, acting like everything is fine.”
