Kelly Dodd went to New York City to visit her fiancé, Rick Leventhal, while he continues to work in Times Square covering the news.

While most of the world is actively avoiding travel, The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd is doing the opposite.  New York City is shut down for the most part due to the spread of the coronavirus and those who could leave, already did.  Kelly posted on her Instagram that she was thankful her mom was watching Jolie while she went to visit her fiancé Rick Leventhal…in New York City.

On Sunday, the CDC issued a travel advisory asking residents to refrain from non-essential domestic travel for the next 14 days in order to help stop the spread of the virus.  But since then, Kelly travelled across the country from California to New York for seemingly no reason other than a social visit.  Rick was actually removing her nail polish on her stories yesterday.  I would venture to call this non-essential travel.

Back on March 25, Bravo posted an article about Kelly visiting Rick in Times Square.  Kelly mentioned Jolie and her mom, Bobbi, were “sheltering in place” in California.  Kelly has been in New York for about a week and was in Florida before that.

It is hard to judge someone else’s decisions when we don’t know what is happening in their lives, but most people are staying at home with their families right now to lessen the chance of getting sick.  Kelly mentioned on a post from last week that her travel to NYC was “essential” and her trip just before that to Miami, Florida, was “a must.”

Either way, we hope Kelly, Rick, Jolie, Bobbi, and everyone else they encounter are safe and doing well.  Stay safe and stay home!
