RHOC’s Kelly Dodd flies back to fiance in NYC after backlash over claims pandemic is ‘God’s way to thin the herd’

REAL Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd seems to have her own definition of "essential travel."

The 44-year-old reality television star jetted back across the country to meet up with her fiance in New York City, on Friday.

The California-based beauty – who is engaged to Rick Leventhal – posted from the East Coast, after sharing an image with her RHOC castmates earlier this week.

Kelly was previously slammed for making the same decision earlier on in lockdown.

This Bravo star left her 13-year-old daughter, Jolie, in California to be with her fiancé in New York during the coronavirus crisis in March.

Kelly posted a pic of her daughter on Instagram and her mom Bobbi saying: "Thanks Mom for watching Jolie while I’ve been in NYC!! My loves #mom #daughter #grandparents #family."

The bride-to-be has been with fiancé Rick, who is a correspondent for FOX News, in New York.

The two are planning to marry this October.

Fans accused Kelly of being reckless and irresponsible leaving her daughter home and traveling during the international health crisis.

One wrote: "Get home ASAP…family first. Stay healthy and safe and safe travels home!"

Another commented: "Yes being across the country from my child during a pandemic is exactly what I would want to do."

Others said: "Yay. Head to NYC spread a little covid why don't you, brains right there…ffs."

It comes after Kelly had to apologise for "vile" remarks she made about the risk from coronavirus.

She had claimed it was "God's way of thinning the herd," but backtracked after a backlash which branded her 'vile."
