Kelly Dodd Of “Real Housewives Of Orange County” Claims She And Her Husband Contracted Lyme Disease

June 15, 2021 / Posted by:

Say the name Kelly Dodd to any mask-wearing Black Lives Matter-supporting Real Housewives fan, and there’s a good chance they’ll dramatically spit on the ground and shout something in Italian that probably translates to “The Devil!” Kelly’s the one who claimed that nobody was dying of coronavirus in Orange County and that the pandemic was God’s way of thinning the herd. Then she was caught on video saying she didn’t like “Black guys”, then she said “all lives matter,” THEN she posted a pic of herself wearing a hat that said, “Drunk Wives Matter.” She’s also married to a FOX News reporter, Rick Leventhal.

So, in summary, Kelly sucks. But guess what else sucks? TICKS! And those little parasitic arachnids went after Kelly and her husband, who have both contracted Lyme disease.

Kelly revealed the news on her Instagram Story, where she filmed her husband Rick taking medicine to treat his recent diagnosis. via Page Six:

“So, we tested positive for Lyme disease,” Dodd said on her Instagram Story as Leventhal sat across from her.

“I’ve never had contact with a tick in my life,” she shared before Leventhal revealed it’s his third bout with the tick-borne disease.

Leventhal, 61, then took an antibiotic pill with hopes that it would cure his Lyme once more as it has in the past.

Kelly didn’t reveal where she thinks she and Rick got the disease, but they recently returned from a vacation to Turks & Caicos.

Here’s a still of the Instagram Story, which can be found on The Daily Mail if you’re that desperate:

Karma is a bitch! This is, coincidentally, exactly what Kelly said about Chrissy Tiegen’s apology a couple of weeks ago.

Housewives fans have been campaigning for Kelly to get fired for a while, but Andy Cohen said he doesn’t think “the people on Bravo should be on trial for their political and cultural views!” He says he disagrees with Kelly’s take on COVID but believes her opinions are probably the norm in Orange County.

Apparently casting for the upcoming RHOC season will be announced in the next few weeks. And if Bravo really is planning on asking Kelly back, might I remind Andy Cohen & Co. that Beverly Hills already did the Lyme disease storyline with Gigi’s momma Yolanda Hadid? 

No need to rehash any of that, Bravo!
