‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ star Kelly Dodd is getting ready to get married in just a few days.
In a photo from her bridal shower that took place this past weekend, Kelly decided to wear a hat that reads ‘Drunk Wives Matter’ — making an obvious mockery of Black Lives Matter.

Coincidentally, Dodd’s co-star, Braunwyn Windham-Burke was not in attendance at her bridal shower. Windham-Burke, 42, is very active in the Black Lives Matter movement and even participated in a special, “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment,” on Bravo this summer.
The bridal shower was not filmed for “RHOC,” but newbie Elizabeth Vargas attended alongside returning “Housewives” Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter.
The reality star’s questionable headwear choice comes a little more than two months after fans slammed her for not using her platform to promote or support the Black Lives Matter movement after she noticeably left the protests out of a list of events that happened in 2020.
“Peaceful protests, black men and women killed by police, and the list goes on…of course, “riots” would be the word of choice ?,” one person commented.
Another chimed in, “Oh and police killing black people. Cmon I thought you were learning & listening…. I’m guessing nothing sunk in.”
The reality star — who is of Mexican descent — also stated in June that she has “experienced racism” as a “woman of color.”
Dodd previously came under fire this spring when she proclaimed that the coronavirus pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” She later apologized for her remarks, but that was not the last time she stated her opinion.
Dodd then compared the coronavirus to the flu in another video, even stating: “But how many people die on a daily basis? … Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”
She downplayed the virus again in May and even claimed that the virus was almost non-existent in Orange County while she went out for a meal with her family.
In a video on her Instagram Story, she shared: “No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because nobody is dying here of the virus.” However, servers wearing masks were visible in her shot.
The fact she would gleefully wear this hat tells you everything you need to know about her.
