'RHOC': Kelly Dodd advises Gina to go easy on her abusive ex-husband during prosecution, fans are shocked
Fans wanted to Kelly that Gina wasn't responsible for Matt's livelihood being affected due to his abusive behavior
'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Kelly Dodd never ceases to shock and disgust fans with her extremely controversial statements on the show. The housewife was at the receiving end of fans' wrath when she made light of Covid-19 related deaths and the deadly virus. The housewife yet again managed to rile up fans when she began advising her fellow housewife Gina Kirschenheiter.
Following her divorce from her ex-husband Matt Kirschenheiter, Gina decided to press charges against him for domestic violence. The housewife had shared her painful and traumatic experience of being a victim of domestic violence during the reunion of the previous season. In the current season, we saw Gina feeling conflicted about pressing charges against Matt for abusing her as it would mean that her relationship with him would get strained and it would impact their children. She also worried about him being locked up in the prison and her children getting upset or resenting her for putting their father in prison.
However, Gina finally decided that she would press charges against Matt and set an example for her children. While her parents, friends and attorney are happy with Gina's decision to prioritize herself, Kelly seems to have a different view on it. When Gina's attorney reveals that Matt's maximum sentence would be for four-and-a-half years, the housewife shared it with her friends.
On hearing this, Kelly urged Gina to go easy on him so that he won't lose his work or chances of him getting employed won't be affected. When Gina and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas heard Kelly's suggestion, they were shocked.The housewife then tried defending her suggestion, by explaining that Gina was done with the situation and Matt wanted to provide for the children, so he should be able to stay employed and find work in the future to be able to support the children.
Just like Gina, even fans weren't pleased with Kelly's suggestion and called her out for it. A fan tweeted, "Is Kelly really telling Gina not to prosecute her abusive Ex- Husband so he can keep a job? #RHOC" "Kelly. F***ing. S***s. (And since this could apply to any moment in any episode, I wrote this when she told Gina to go easy on her ex-husband at his hearing for his FELONY ARREST for domestic violence.) #RHOC," wrote a fan. Another fan echoed similar thoughts with, "Kelly telling Gina to go easy on her abusive ex’s “livelihood” Jesus f*** SHUT UP DODD #RHOC."
