Home » RHOC Star Kelly Dodd Says She Has Tested Negative for COVID-19 Amid Illness Following Her Wedding
Kelly Dodd says she did not contract COVID-19 after her weekend wedding to Rick Leventhal.
After sparking concern among her fans and followers on Instagram earlier this week by sharing a video of herself coughing amid complaints of being sick and revealing she was being treated by her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Shannon Beador, Kelly returned to social media, where she confirmed she’s tested negative for the coronavirus.
“Results are in …its negative,” Kelly wrote in the caption of an October 14 post. “I wish I was hanging out with my fellow cast members. But I’m hanging out with my husband and daughter. Watching the season premiere.”
After rumors began swirling in regard to Kelly’s potential diagnosis on Wednesday, the newly married RHOC star confirmed her illness was nothing more than a cold.
In one comment shared to Reality Blurb‘s Instagram page, Kelly said, “Omg I got a cold.”
As fans may have seen on Instagram, a number of Kelly’s online audience members assumed she was suffering from COVID-19 after she shared a handwritten note from Shannon and confirmed she was taking Vitamin C supplements, which Shannon had used to treat herself while battling the virus earlier this year.
For months, Kelly has been under fire for comments she’s made about COVID-19, as well as the way in which she’s acted throughout the pandemic.
Months ago, as she traveled back and forth between Orange County and New York City, despite the ongoing spread of the virus, Kelly shocked fans when she suggested the illness was “God’s way of thinning the heard” before later apologizing for the offensive statement.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
