Kelly Dodd says her dog was killed by a coyote while she was away
“We are incredibly saddened by the loss of our incredibly sweet, cuddly, spirited, playful, lovable little friend Benji,” Dodd wrote on Instagram. “He was killed by a coyote who apparently jumped a high fence into our backyard last night when we were out of town and our friend was sitting on the dog. We think Benji heard the coyotes and went out the dog door to investigate. He was a joy and a bright light in our lives and made us all so happy. Jolie hasn’t stopped crying and Rick and I are in despair. We will miss you so much Benj but we know you will spend eternity with your sister Chloe.”
Several former and current housewives have expressed their condolences to Dodd.
“Oh no darling. I’m so sorry,” wrote former RHOBH co-star Vicki Gunvalson.
RHONY star Ramona Singer commented with several prayer emojis.
“Oh no. I’m so sorry for your loss honey,” commented Peggy Tanous.
Fans also showed their support for Dodd by offering their condolences.
“Sooo sorry for your loss,” one wrote.
“I am so sorry. This is so heartbreaking. Sending you so much love and light,” one fan commented.
“I saw you and Rick walking your cute dogs the whole time! So sorry!” wrote one fan.
“Omg!! I’m so sorry Kelly!!” someone said, “That would totally piss me off too!! We live in Indiana and these nasty coyotes are all around! This is my worst nightmare!!! Our pets are family and it’s a great loss! I know it Pain!! Prayers to you all!!!”
Kelly Dodd announced on Instagram that she was deleting her “This is for you trolls” Twitter account
Dodd left Twitter on June 6, 2022, citing “trolls” as the problem on the social media platform.
“Saying goodbye to my 211,000 Twitter followers,” Dodd wrote on Instagram. “This is for you, trolls. It’s like having a toxic friend. You’re happy to get off, but it’s not worth it in the end. There is too much hate and too many fake accounts on this platform. This is where the abandonment culture was born and I’m done. When @elonmusk.ab takes over I might be back, but until then you can find me here on @instagram #twitter #trolls #bots #spam #fake #losers #woke #bye”
Several fans chimed in to support the decision.
“Will miss you there Kelly! Thank god we have you here and hope you do more lives here,” one wrote.
“I wish everyone would do that! We must CANCEL CULTURE,” one fan wrote.
“Good for you,” someone wrote. “You do NOT need a platform that doesn’t recognize you AT ALL.. Your verification request will be ignored IF YOU ARE A PUBLIC PERSON! All they do there is tell lies and spread rumours, especially in the housewife community. There are so many trolls out there just trying to bring people down.”
