"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Kelly Dodd is once again stirring controversy amid the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, she posted several clips to her Instagram Story of her and her family enjoying a meal out inside a restaurant.

"Yay, no one is wearing a mask. I love it. Yay!" she said, despite that fact that all of the staff was wearing face coverings.

"No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus," she could be heard saying. To date, there are 131 confirmed COVID-19 deaths in Orange County and nearly 100,000 nationwide.

Later she added to her Instagram Story, writing, "It’s not the government’s job to protect my health. It’s the government’s job to protect my RIGHTS. It’s my job to protect my health. When you trade liberty for safety you end up losing both."

Late last month, Dodd got into an argument with a commenter on an Instagram post that showed he flying in a commercial plane.

"If non-essential workers keep traveling back and forth like you, it will last longer," one of Dodd's followers commented.

"If it's dangerous why are the airlines still flying? You think I want to fly? I had to get back, how is that elitist? People are so judgemental it's sick! Do you know how many people died from the H1N1, the swine flu or SARS? It’s 25% get your facts straight you are only hearing numbers not the reality!" she said.

Dodd then added the virus is "God's way of thinning the herd! If you are vulnerable or compromised stay inside. If you don't protect others by wearings masks and gloves keep your distance and don't go out if you are ill!! It's common sense!"

She later apologized for the comment.

"When I wrote that it’s 'God's way of thinning the herd' that's not what I meant. What I meant was, do these pandemics happen because it's God’s way? I'm not God, I'm not insensitive, I feel bad for all the families that lost loved ones and I do think we should all stay home and protect everybody. That's not what I meant and I want to apologize to anyone that got offended, okay? I'm sorry," she wrote in a post.

"So for anybody who felt offended by my stupid writing of God thinning the herd, I don't — I'm just asking a question. Is it it God's way of thinning the herd? I don't know," she continued. "I just feel bad and my choice of words were stupid and I hope you guys can all forgive me for saying something so ridiculous and so stupid. So again, please accept my apology, and I feel bad for everybody out there that has lost loved ones, and I hope everybody's safe and protects themselves from this pandemic."
