Tamra Judge from The Real Housewives of Orange County had harsh words for Kelly Dodd when she was seen having drinks with friends during the pandemic. And while she admonished Dodd for her actions, she was criticized for doing the exact same thing.
Judge shared a photo on Instagram of Vicki Gunvalson and friends having wine at a local restaurant. The group is celebrating “something exciting” but she ended up being dragged by fans. While each state has varying guidelines about nonessential establishment openings, fans couldn’t help but admonish her for being out on the town while others were still in lockdown.
Before she posted the photo she shared her thoughts on Dodd’s pandemic behavior. She seemed frustrated that Dodd didn’t appear to be taking the pandemic seriously and insisted that her apology was likely forced by Bravo.
Judge says Dodd has been ‘irresponsible and ignorant’
“For a public person to do that is very irresponsible,” she said on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “And ignorant. Somebody told me just yesterday on Kelly’s story that there was a picture of them all out drinking. I’m like, unbelievable.”
Judge wondered what it would take for Dodd to stop being reckless. “What would it take, her mom getting it or something,” she wondered. She insisted that she has only been home or in her gym. “I go to my gym and work out and come home,” she said. “And really that’s about it. So trust me, I’d love for things to be open and go places, but you know what? Sitting on your a** at home for four months is not the end of the world.”
“There’s other people that have gone through so much worse,” she continued. “Just stay home. I don’t think you need to go hanging out with a bunch of friends drinking. Not smart.”
Judge later shared a photo where she’s drinking with a bunch of friends
Judge’s podcast interview was conducted long before she posted the photo drinking at a bar with friends. However, because no streamlined guidelines are provided nationwide, fans couldn’t help but slam her for being at a bar while COVID-19 cases continued to climb. The friends are not only at a bar but sitting and standing extremely close together too.
In her post, she added a hashtag that restaurants were open in the OC too. Restaurants continued to open in Orange County, beginning around the Memorial Day weekend.
Despite the establishment being open for business, fans didn’t hold back, launching direct and extremely harsh comments at Judge and Gunvalson. One person responded, “There aren’t restrictions because the rich entitled white people that live in the OC threatened the health director’s life when they were told to wear face mask. Incredibly irresponsible of you tamra considering your spouse has health problems and your age!!! You and Vicky are in the age category that impacts COVID the worse!! Smarten up!”
While a few people left positive remarks, Gunvalson too was called out. “Hope you had a great time. No mask and breathing on each other so close. You guys are way braver than me. Hope you stay safe and don’t get sick,” one person wrote on Gunvalson’s repost.
