The Reason Tamra Judge Wants Kelly Dodd Fired From RHOC

Bravo has been cracking down recently, firing several cast members for problematic behavior. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired from Vanderpump Rules last week for racist comments and actions, while Peter Hunziker was just terminated from Below Deck Mediterranean for a racially insensitive social media post. Now, former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Tamra Judge wants Kelly Dodd fired from the show.


Judge expressed her stance on Instagram Q&A (via E! News) after being asked to weigh in on "racist statements" Dodd has made in the past. "Yes I do, that TMZ video is disgusting!" said Judge. "Bravo shouldn't just single certain people out like Stassi & Kristen. There should be zero tolerance at this point." Judge was referring to a video shared by TMZ in 2016 of a seemingly inebriated Dodd saying she doesn't "like" or "know any Black guys."

Dodd later issued an apology for her behavior, tellingĀ TMZ, "I am truly embarrassed. There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone. That video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly."

Kelly Dodd clapped back at Tamra Judge

Judge's comments came after she left RHOC rather than accept a major demotion. Dodd clapped back at her former co-star in the comments of an Instagram post (via People), claiming that Judge is "just thirsty and mad she got the bullet." She continued, "Grasping for straws poor thing .. I hope she finds happiness."


Dodd isn't the only Bravo star people want to see fired. Former Vanderpump Rules cast members Billie Lee and Faith Stowers have called for Jax Taylor to be terminated from the show. "He's said very, very mean things to new cast members," Stowers told ET. She added that he did apologize later, but "it seems like he continues to get away with everything he does."

Lee called out Taylor in a tweet addressed to Bravo. "He refused to film with me because I was trans and called him out on his white cis privilege," she wrote. "Stop celebrating his disgusting actions. #canceljaxtaylor."
