All good things must come to an end.
On a similar note, the reality television careers of all elitists and racists also should come to an end.
Sooner rather than later, we hope and assume.
In the wake of an explosive Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special — which featured Kelly Dodd screaming about getting canceled and claiming she isn’t biased against Black people — speculation is now running rampant.
Changes are on the way.
Following Wednesday evening’s conclusion of Season 15 reunion, host Andy Cohen hinted at a likely cast shakeup during an unexpected Twitter exchange.
First, journalist and Real Housewives superfan Evan Ross Katz tweeted, “It’s time to cancel RHOC,” which prompted The View’s Meghan McCain to concur with a simple:
This is where Cohen jumped in to the frray, replying to both as follows: “I think you mean reBOOT.”
The past season of the long-running franchise has been a contentious one.
It featured Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Kelly Dodd, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas.
Braunwyn has especially been on a journey of sobriety and personal growth all season… also recently came out as a lesbian.
During the two-part reunion, Dodd (who sucks!) accused Braunwyn of being a “fake alcoholic” and a “liar.”
Kelly separately told E! News that none of the cast member have a relationship with Braunwyn since the emotional taping.
“No, I haven’t spoken to her at all. No one has,” Dodd alleged to this outlet.
“She’s completely alienated herself from the group. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with any of us, but then she’ll go hang out with Salt Lake City girls.
“It’s so beyond me. It’s an ensemble cast, we’ve got relationships and she’s completely alienated herself.”
Dodd doesn’t think she’ll be back on Season 16, either.
She has stated, for one thing, that she won’t return of Braunwyn is asked back.
And she also said the following to Bustle:
“My castmates talk at me, they talk about me, but they never talk to me.
“I take accountability for everything I have done. I’ve admitted to some really hard things. But now knowing the truth and what people are saying, I give up.
“I am waving the white flag. I can’t keep doing this.”
Dodd hasn’t actually quit, of course.
But she anticipates getting fired because she’s a fan of Donald Trump and she’s an ignorant and dangerous fool who doesn’t believe in wearing a mask amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“They better not fire you, people are fed up with the cancel culture,” a fan wrote in a comment on Kelly’s latest post.
“It’s likely to happen,” Kelly replied of her potential exit from the program.
Somehow, Dodd really does appear to have a following.
“You got fired for questioning masks and supporting Trump?! Braunwyn admits to trying to get a 14-year-old drugs and she’s given Kleenex?” another fan asked, adding that Braunwyn “should be gone!”
“Pretty much,” Kelly confirmed.
This is not so, of course.
No one has yet been fired.
Kelly also received a message from a viewer who applauded her for calling out “the woke” and the “peaceful protestors” for their alleged hypocrisy.
Moreover, this individual thanked Dodd for placing a spotlight on the struggles of small businesses.
“Thank you for speaking something other than the narrative,” the fan wrote.
In response, the polarizing personality said she will be let go from the series because producers prefer Braunwyn.
“I’m fired assured because of my beliefs look at [Thomas Kelly‘s] Instagram. He’s my producer and claims [Braunwyn Windham-Burke],” Kelly claimed.
We’ll soon find out what sort of changes Cohen has been hinting at on social media.
And we won’t shed a tear is it involves Kelly Dodd.
