Jennie Nguyen has been facing severe scrutiny after a series of offensive Facebook posts went viral. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star shared several memes and photos in 2020 with major racist themes that costed her a job. Now, it seems Kelly Dodd has a lot to say about what just went down.
The alleged posts took place at the height of the Black Lives Matter protest movement in the United States. Producer Andy Cohen said the posts were upsetting and disgusting. Bravo apparently agreed. The TV network then announced the firing of Jennie Nguyen via an Instagram post.
Fast forward to January 27, Kelly Dodd posted a YouTube video talking about the situation. Dodd claimed that she was being lumped in with Nguyen’s drama. Previously, Dodd also received backlash from fans about some of her posts on social media. Naturally, she is now being dragged into the Jennie drama.
“Don’t lump me in with this chick,” Dodd said in a statement about Nguyen. “I don’t know her, and I’m not getting involved in what she did or didn’t say. I don’t know if she is a racist, but I do know I’m not. I know what racism feels like. I grew up Mexican on the West Side of Phoenix with a very diverse group of friends, and I still have a very diverse group of friends. This is about Bravo and Andy Cohen, not me. This is their brand and their business. If they feel the need to fire her, that’s their decision.”
The drama will continue for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There is still plenty to go around even without Jennie Nguyen. Hopefully, Bravo will try to do a better job at casting a new member from now on.
