Kelly Dodd is finally facing some consequences for her actions.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, who many want to see axed from the show for her views on racism and COVID-19, has, at last, been fired.

Just not by Bravo.

Not yet, at least.

Instead, Positive Beverage said on Sunday that it has severed ties with Dodd.

Said Zach Muchnick, Positive Beverage Head of Brand, in a statement on Instagram.

"Our core values of wellness, community, diversity and inclusion should be reflected by our brand and anyone associated with it.

"It has become clear over the past few months that Kelly's controversial views and opinions have distracted from our primary objectives, so effective today, we are no longer affiliated with Kelly Dodd-Leventhal."

This announcement came a day after Dodd went to a California restaurant with some friends.

At one point during the outing, which did not include anyone wearing any masks, Dodd laughed and raised a glass when someone close to her offered up a cheer to the "super spreaders."

Previously, on numerous occasions, Dodd scoffed at the severity of the coronavirus and often spoke out against mask-use.

Positive Beverage CEO Shannon Argyros added in her own statement yesterday:

"We welcome all people -- however they are and whatever they are passionate about -- to Positive Beverage. But there must always be an underlying layer of respect."

"Unfortunately, we feel Kelly's stance is no longer congruent with our core values."

"We appreciate her contributions during our affiliation, and she will always be a part of Positive Beverage's history, but we do not align with her opinions or global views while we uphold our own values."

There's been strong talk of late that Dodd's frequent remarks may lead her to get fired by Bravo, too.

For some reason, Dodd blamed Vicki Gunvalson for this speculation over the weekend and denied that she had been let go by the network.

“No I am not fired !!! Contacts [sic] haven’t come out yet ! Vicki stop being a hater,” Dodd wrote in response to the rumors.

In this case, the 45-year old Dodd has had partnership with Positive Beverage for the last two years.

She even bought a stake in the company in February of 2019.

“I’m glad I could help put Positive Beverage on the map and wish them well,” Dodd Tweeted on Sunday, January 31, after the company announced it was dumping her.

“I’m also really excited about my next venture in the beauty industry, which is my real passion.

"Stay tuned!”

Elsewhere, in an Instagram Stories video, Dodd reacted to online criticism of her and her friends eating at the aforementioned restaurant and mocking the COVID-19 pandemic as described.

"I'm not a super spreader because there is nothing to spread," Kelly said in the video, alleging that she and her friends "all got the (COVID-19) vaccine. And we don't have it.

"So there's nothing to spread."

"The sheeple are mad," added Dodd.

Kelly Dodd Offers a Desperate Apology

Dodd, of course, is not over 65 years old and is not any kind of frontline worker.

She absolutely should not have received the vaccine before those who do meet the above requirements.

A source close to the reality star told People Magazine that Dodd "has not gotten the vaccine," which at least means she's a liar, not an entitled line-skipper.

Kelly Dodd Doesn't Really Apologize

In another video posted on Saturday, Dodd and her friends likened COVID-19 restrictions to that of living in Russia.

Last April, Dodd said the virus -- which has killed more than 439,000 people in the U.S. -0 is “God’s way of thinning the herd.”

Dodd later apologized for her comments, telling Andy Cohen:

"At the time, it was a question -- like, 'Why are all these people dying? ... Why [do] pandemics happen like this? Is it God's way of thinning the herd?'"

"It was a stupid thing for me to say. It was insensitive and I apologize if I hurt or offended anybody, 'cause that wasn't really my intention."

"I got freaked out about it and in hindsight, it was the stupidest thing I've ever said."

Call us crazy, but...

... we don't think Kelly Dodd is actually sorry for those remarks.

She. Is. The. Worst.
