RHOC 's Tamra Judge Calls for Kelly Dodd to Be Fired for 'Disgusting' Past Racist Comments
Tamra Judge believes Kelly Dodd should be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County because of her earlier racist statements after Bravo fired Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute.
On Tuesday, the 52-year-old judge called her former co-star during an Instagram Q&A when a fan asked, "Do you think Kelly should be fired for her racist statements?"
In response, the judge said, "Yes, I do."
"The TMZ video is disgusting!" The judge continued, adding that "Bravo shouldn't just pick out certain people like Stassi & Kristen. There should be no tolerance at this point."
Bravo does not comment on the matter. PEOPLE asks Dodd's representative for a comment.
As early as 2016, TMZ released a video by Dodd, 44, in which she said that she doesn't like "blacks" outside of The Nice Guy in Los Angeles.
"I don't like blacks," Dodd told TMZ. "I don't even know black guys."
The same year, Dodd apologized to TMZ and said she was "really embarrassed".

"There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend someone. This video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly," Dodd told TMZ.
Recently there has been speculation that Dodd will be released from the network after her controversial comments have reappeared.
Earlier this month, Dodd cleared the air due to rumors that she was being fired when a fan asked, "Kelly, is it true that they fired you from RHOC?"

"No, it's lies like everything else that has been said about me," Dodd replied.
In a statement to PEOPLE on June 9, Bravo confirmed that Schroeder (31) and Doute (37) will not return to Vanderpump Rules, both of which have played the leading role since the show's debut in 2013. Cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni - whose years of racist tweets reappeared last winter - won't come back either.
"Bravo and Evolution Media today confirmed that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not return to Vanderpump Rules," said the network.
Their departures took place days after Schroeder and Doute published long statements on Instagram in response to an earlier incident with former Castmate Faith Stowers. Earlier this month, during an Instagram live chat with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice, Stowers, who appeared in seasons 4 and 6 of the Bravo series, remembered a time when Schroeder and Doute discovered a tabloid article about a black woman, who was searched for theft and called the police to pin the crimes against them. (In 2018, Schröder confirmed that he had called the police about Stowers while on the Bitch Bible Podcast.)
"Racially insensitive comments from my past have reappeared. It is important that I continue to take responsibility for what I have said and done as I push myself to do better," said Schröder in her statement.
In the meantime, Doute shared her own statement on social media, partially saying, "Although my actions were not racially motivated, I am now fully aware of how my privilege blinded me to the reality of law enforcement treatment of the black community how dangerous my actions would have been for her. "She added:" It was never my intention to increase injustice and imbalance. I am ashamed, ashamed and I am incredibly sorry. I will do better. I have to do better. "

The judge's call to fire Dodd comes almost five months after she announced that she would be leaving RHOC after 12 seasons.
After announcing her departure in January, Judge announced that she was offered $ 200,000 for three episodes before quitting - but she declined the offer.

The news came during the Hot Topics segment in an episode of the Wendy Williams Show when presenter spoke about Judge's decision to decline the offer of a "limited role" for RHOC.
"Now Tamra said she left the show after being offered a limited role. And if I tell you a limited role, they gave her $ 900,000 a season. This is Tamra. They put her on three scenes for $ 20,000. Dollar reduced, "said 55-year-old Williams, who received an expression of shock from the audience." Exactly! "
"NOT TRUE @wendyshow," Judge replied on her Instagram story alongside footage of Williams discussing Judge's decision. "You have to add another zero to this number."
The judge praised Williams for confirming her decision to say goodbye to the franchise.
"At least she has the cujones to say," Oh, no, I'm out. I'm out! "Williams continued in the segment, and Judge posted a clapping emoji on the footage.
