Kelly Dodd: Bravo Fined Me For 'Drunk Wives Matter' Hat

Former RHOC Housewife Kelly Dodd says that Bravo fined her for the "Drunk Lives Matter" hat she wore.

"I got fined for wearing a 'Drunk Wives Matter' hat, and I didn't even buy it," she said on David Yontef's "Behind The Velvet Rope" podcast. "It was given to me... and I didn't wear it on the show. It was at my bridal shower, and I got dinged for that."

She continued, "I got $16,000, and they wouldn't tell me why, but I know one of those reasons was wearing that hat. It was general behavior [though], of why I got charged [$16,000]."

She said bravo would not explain exactly how she earned the fine.

"But I know I caused them a lot of grief because they did promote BLM so much."

After the hat went viral, Kelly apologized.

"Over the weekend at my bridal shower I got lots of gifts and briefly displayed them. One was a hat with a play on words since I'm about to be a wife, I'm on a Housewives TV show and might be drunk once in a while," she tweeted.

She continued, "It was not intended to offend or make any kind of statement. Of course I support black lives and racial equality! Thank you all ❤ Love, Kelly."
