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.”
